I purchased a Sony Vaio Z-Series notebook (model: VPCZ12X5E, graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M, Windows 7 64bit) back in July of last year quickly followed by Adobe's new Creative Suite 5. Much to my horror, the NVIDIA driver which have GPU acceleration for CS 5 explicitly stated that it would not work on Sony Vaio laptops!
Six months later and visiting the NVIDIA driver site there have been some developments:
On the Supported Products tab at the bottom it says:
Sony has joined the Verde program by supporting the following VAIO notebooks: Sony F Series with NVIDIA GeForce 310M and Sony F Series with NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M. Other Sony VAIO notebooks are not supported at this time (please contact Sony for driver support).
As I am on a Z-Series this unfortunately doesn't cover me. Early in the piece I contacted Sony support and they said that they would log an issue and get back to me - I'm still waiting.
Does anyone have a Z-Series which they have successfully updated to the new drivers and how?
Does anyone know if the Z-Series "high-end business notebook" will ever be upgraded by Sony to the latest drivers?
