What a trooper! Thanks Cyris. I was just about to download the 331.40 Quadro driver as well!

Does this driver have the promised optimizations for the new Shadow Warrior as well, which I read about last week on the GeForce.com forum?

This driver has the same branch as the quadro 331.40
r331_00-96

Big move from R235.

These drivers have improved my BF3 average FPS by at least 20.

^ I think nvidia put the driver in the web and later wen they get the green light they link to the search engine,if you know where they placed the driver you can manually download any other .
For example if you take any of this links but change the number of the driver you can download any of the older drivers

Testing for 560Ti freezes now.
None so far but it has only been an hour - focusing on heavy browsing with FF25b3.

I don't believe we have any performance optimizations. We are currently testing an SLI profile (different from the one suggested on Steam). Should be pushed soon to end users once it has been tested and pushed to our servers.

This driver is still crappy for surround users on desktop

Applications (like Firefox) which are starting in fullscreen mode on my machine will automatically span across all three screens. Found no way to prevent this. Using the window mode and move the window to the top will also span across all three screens
The only way to maximize the window on one screen only is to use the good old maximize button. So welcome back to stone age.

The last driver where fullscreen worked properly in surround was 320.49...since then nobody at nVidia seems to be interested to fix this.

This time I cannot roll back because of BF4...so I will have to do extra clicks each day. Thanks nvidia....NOT!
