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.
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.
