With all the 10% increases over the last few sets its added up to about 100% maybe I am not seeing this. Will test later for those that don't want to install another set, will just be doing comparisons with this and 182.47's though. Any games people want me to test in particular?

That's because you didn't even bother to fully read the release notes. 10% performance increase of the whole 182.xx set compared to previous major revisions. E.g. 180.xx and 181.xx

On a further note, compounding 10% increase each time would yield you doubling of performance much faster than you expect with adding up 10% consequently.

Flickering menu in CoD4, when exiting f.ex. multiplayer game, is still not fixed. I have observed same since about 3 latest set of drivers.

SLI Profile for H.A.W.X. also not there, although was not a problem for me to add it manually (I have same set to AFR2, works fine).

Otherwise what can I say - it works sofar.

Alright, with my 7800 GS, ****ty SiS motherboard, I'm getting a Code 10. Any ideas? I've tried numerous times to uninstall and reinstall, but no go. I need these newer drivers, I've been forced to run 94.24 for ages now.

NVIDIA hasn't fixed their drivers yet for 6 & 7 series AGP cards !
Try the 182.47 developer driver, it works well.

And now my card is being read as PCI by it. It's also running like PCI as well, 10fps in the first 3Dmark06 test whereas 94.24 gets 24.
