    Just a early driver report, but my framerate is REALLY fricken bad with these drivers so far, and thats even with a uninstall, driver sweep in safe mode, installed fresh drivers

    L4D I am getting 62FPS in area's I was getting 110, and TF2 my framerate is HALF of what it normally is in my test map, getting 148FPS when I used to get 300 in the test map

    Going to try UT3 and see if this is localized to steam games

    EDIT: See my full driver review on page 7 where I talk about this driver after a complete reinstall of vista OS and benchmarks etc

    I beg to differ.

    It's a new entry in the application based 3D settings. You can choose between "adaptive" and "maximum performance".

    Basically, "adaptive" seems to allow the card to run with the clock settings specified for low power 3D (at least, that's what it is called in RivaTuner), if the application doesn't use all the card's power.
    "Maximum performance" forces the card to run at maximum clock speeds no matter how much power the app actually needs.

    This sounds like a useful feature for older games and applications such as video players, which are recognized as 3D accelerated apps but actually only use a fraction of the card's horsepower. My TV app for example used to run at full 3D clocks (670/1500/1250 MHz), while with the new drivers the clocks stay at 400/800/300 MHz.

    Was the low power 3D setting ever even used before? It has been around for a while (I remember my Geforce 7 having this) but I never paid it any attention.

Learn more here. ------- Do you have to have SLI or can you have a PCI-E and a PCI graphics card for Physx accel?

    Thanks for the info. I was wondering why my GPU temps would rise when playing even small vid clips. I guess this can take care of that.

    I wasen't even overclocking my card, and TF2/L4D/UT3 were crashing over, and over, and over again

    I've gone back to the previous drivers, and everything is stable again

    Has anyone had any luck activating antialiasing with these drivers?
    Whether I use the control panel or nHancer, I cannot get any AA mode to work in any game.

    I've just installed these new drivers and the monitor gained no signal from the GPU, after that bluescreen came with the error "nvidia_disp" preventing it from working, which was Nvidia Display.. :bang:
    Had to go in safe mode and install back the latest stable drivers.

    Solved:
