Downloading now, thanks for the link. Looks like this is the fixed TDR driver that NVIDIA have been promising people with that problem for a while now. Let's hope it fixes it for good (though I've never experienced this issue myself).

So is this a completely new branch then or a continuation of the previous 290.53 set?

Perhaps it's not an nVidia issue and Codemaster should fix their games.

These seem like good drivers to me but unfortunately they still dont have FXAA support like the 295.18. Using Nvidia inspector doesnt seem to work to enable it anymore and the injector doesnt work with SWTOR without a certain hack.
If the driver is able to use FXAA in older version why not just implement it.
