    If anyone has tested these, please tell if there are any differences between these and the betas? Is it worth to change driver just for whql certification?? Usually I would say no, but these beta┬┤s arent 100% stable so id like some changes in the whql if there are any. Please report if so?! :) Thx in advance.

    In this WHQL drivers folder added only nv4_disp.cat (Security Verification) rest files obviously - same files as 181.22 beta

    the 181.20 whql were better than the 181.22 especially Mirror's Edge where the 181.20 had much more stable framerates while 181.22 used to dip to 30 and rise to 60 and generally was weird, also cards would not downclock and stay in 3d mode.

    ill give these a whirl but i'm not expecting much, maybe something did change afterall. i'll report.

    Thanks for the Headsup, If you already installed the beta then no point in installing whql since there both the same. Hopefully a new beta will pop up soon :)

    I just want to know how Microsoft can Quality Assure a driver that broke functions from previous drivers?

    WHQL means absolutely SH!T!

    Exactly. I've frequently found beta drivers to be better than the WHQL'ed ones.

    MSI Hawk GTX460 1GB @ SLI
    Dunno if it's coz I'm using SLI (and two different GTX260 65nm cards, one 216SP, the other 192SP), but all drivers, incl this, show flickering smoke in CoD5 WaW SP..."Little Resistance" map for example.

    I tried Windows 7 in dual boot, no flickering at all (and superb image quality!), but later discovered SLI didn't work for CoD5 (gpu temps different), SLI DID work on Win7, just not that game. The more I fiddled with nvcpl settings for CoD5, the more artifacts I got - I've never seen artifacts with my 260's, single or SLI.
    - Work to do there nvidia, or name the 3-4 cards differently if they're NOT supposed to work in SLI ! (GTX260 65nm 192SP, GTX260 65nm 216SP, GTX260 55nm 216SP)

    Just ran 3dm06, 2048x1152 rez (2.4% more pixels than 1920x1200), 4xAA, 16xAF with new monitor, Dell SP2309W: doesn't matter if I run 1280x1024( ONE OR TWO CARDS!), no AA etc, I pulled almost same score in high rez ! 16.7K, 8K SM2, almost 8K SM3/HDR with C2D 3.9GHz. max oc on gpus :D

    I hope I confuse more 9800GTX->GTX260 buyers....no advantage noticed....I'd say, what you get with modern oc'd cpu and single G92 - almost same as GTX260, or SLI'd! ...but thats with the baby rez 12x10 only...
