It wouldn't be the first time NVIDIA forgot to include the latest version of PhysX with their latest WHQL driver.

Will wait for others to report their findings - I'm still on 314.22 because of the instability and issues of the 320 BETA series. Black Ops 2 texture bug fixed?

I saw on laptopvideo2go's front page that ASUS released a 320.11 driver with newer PhysX than this driver as well.

10 minutes in I got my first freeze/full system lockup, just like with 320.14 which froze up 3 times during Metro, surfing the web and idling on the desktop.

Back to 314.22 (again)

I was getting some strange hang ups with the first two 320 betas I tried, but nothing since.

What bugcheck code do you guys get with BSOD?
