OCZ’s brain thingie is going 64-bit… finally

When OCZ Technology launched somewhat revolutionary gaming peripheral dubbed NIA (Neural Impulse Actuator), I could only find one flaw: lack of 64-bit drivers.
From personal experience, running 32-bit Vista is nothing short of pain in that specific part of human body – I’ve been using 32-bit XP and 64-bit Vista dual boot since November 30, 2006. Yes, through all the horrid moments of not having Vista drivers for 8800GTX until late Q1’07.

The device is so good that it leaves a lasting impression... but you have to use it to build your profile. It only gets better as the time passes by...

The device is so good that it leaves a lasting impression... but you have to use it to build your profile. It only gets better as the time passes by...

Starting today, NIA finally has 64-bit driver support. According to Dr. Michael Schuette, “The migration to the Vista 64 environment with the unified ver. 2.0 software suite required a complete recoding of the human interface device library”. The company decided to add the 64-bit executable into brand new unified driver package, supporting 32-bit Windows XP and both versions of Vista.
You can download drivers from here. Given the fact that my old review never saw the light of day on previous publications, I am working on a new review, hopefully done by next week.
If you have NIA device, you can grab the drivers here. If you don’t have the device, I wholeheartedly advise you to reconsider your shopping list – the device now sells for only $116.99 (after  $20.00 MIR) over at Newegg.

    This is definitely awesome. I believe that not having 64bit was definitely the only weakness i could find in this device other than the learning curve which is pretty much necessary for such a device. But even for myself the learning curve was not too bad. Definitely an A class device that now has the right kind of driver support.

  • Well, let’s hope that the device can hit $99 price point and become a nice gadget for Black Friday/Cyber Monday/X-Mas shopping periods.

    I’ve used the device for the past couple of months and have to admit, it grew on me. But it is not an instant “out-of-the-box” thing, it has to “adapt” on you (and vice versa ;)).
