I remember when I bought RIFT during Headstart that Nvidia was the advertised brand to buy for the game to work the best. So I did. However, in all of the driver updates I see games like Battleground, FF 13, and a ton of others. But I've never seen a listing saying something like "Updated drivers to improved RIFT's rendering" on their website.

Was Trion just blowing smoke hoping Nvidia would support them?
Did Nvidia at some time just say "RIFT is going nowhere, lets not worry about troubleshooting their gaming issues."?
Did Trion and Nvidia at any time have an agreement saying that they would work together?

I ask all these questions cause it seems that while I enjoy this game enough to have paid for 24 months already, I don't see the game getting much respect from the Nvidia Publishers.
