    How long does it take for them to release WHQL after the BETA version has been released?

    Most of the previous driver versions seem to come within a month (month and a half at the most).

    195.39 got me interested... so... :)

    not too long unless there are showstopping bugs.

    Not up to Nvidia...Should have asked how long does it take Microsoft to WHQL.
    Nvidia or any other vendor submits the drivers for WHQL to Microsoft who then tests them.
    Microsoft will, after testing, either WHQL them or tell the vendor the drivers need bugs fixed.

    WHQL= Windows Hardware Quality Labs

    Nvidia typically releases WHQL drivers with a 3-4 month gap IIRC and going by their previous releases.

    AMD releases every month.
