- You can download Nvidia drivers right from the Nvidia website, or using an app called Nvidia GeForce Experience.
- If you have an Nvidia GeForce card, you can install the GeForce Experience app to automatically install the right Nvidia drivers.
- If you have a different kind of Nvidia card or don’t want to use the Experience app, you can manually download drivers from the Nvidia website.
- Before you download new Nvidia drivers, use the Windows Device Manager to find out what graphics card you have installed.

For years, Nvidia has been a leader in the field of computer graphics. Many of the most powerful computers on the market use Nvidia graphics cards.
And like any part of your computer, the software on your Nvidia cards — also
Computer simulations are showing astrophysicists how massive clumps of gas within galaxies scatter some stars from their orbits, eventually creating the smooth, exponential fade in the brightness of many galaxy disks.

Researchers from Iowa State University, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and IBM Research have advanced studies they started nearly 10 years ago. They originally focused on how massive clumps in young galaxies affect star orbits and create galaxy disks featuring bright centers fading to dark edges.
(As Curtis Struck, an Iowa State professor of physics and astronomy, wrote in a 2013 research summary: “In galaxy disks, the scars of a rough childhood, and adolescent blemishes, all smooth away with time.”)
Now, the group has co-authored a new paper that says their ideas about the formation of exponential disks apply to more than young galaxies. It’s also a process that is robust and universal in all kinds of galaxies. The exponential
