    this driver for me is ok vantage score is about the same 25k,display quality is about the same also...its a better driver for me than the previous 190,not only do i use drivesweeper i also drivercleaner which is alot better than drivesweeper,drivercleaner detects and cleans more registry files than drivesweeper does


    most beta drivers work better on my pc than the forceware,most of the time

    You guys are right.. forcing AA doesnt work in Mass Effect. I'm about to go back to 186.08 unfortunately.

    My IQ seems better across the board FEAR 1 is solid @ 138 AVG FPS 282 Max 97 MIN
    Will try more seem fine to me. Also i like the adjustment in 3d settings for adaptive or maximum settings for cards i left at adaptive and tested works fine

    Edit Also i had AA AF fiull on in fear i maxed out the settings they looked great concrete popping everywhere phx and shaders great too:)

    190.38 beta, as bad as all the 185-186 drivers, that's why i stick with 182.46 betas, probably the last and best driver nvidia put out for my 8800gtx (yee pretty old) but my friend also who owns a GTX280s card insists 182.46 are the best for him.

    i guess new drivers may be best for newer cards.

    Adds a new user-controlled power management setting for GeForce 9-series and later graphics cards. This option allows users to set a performance level for each DirectX or OpenGL application.

    Where is this setting at? im not seeing it in the control panel

    i`m not liking them, had a fanny on trying to revert back to my previous drivers too!!

    BlackMoth, its not a huge jump, you`d probably get similar results running 3dmark a few times and taking an average score!! its less than 1/2fps

    only thing ive tried so far is fallout 3, fps seems to be about the same.. but im getting a little bit of stuttering every now and then..

    also for some reason i cant get vsync to turn off now.. idk what the deal is, so i might end up going back to 186.24

    Something is not OK here.

    Lost 95% of FPS in every game. Everything is slow.

    Performance 3D mode is working. GPU is at fullspeed. DX aceleration is on. everything is ok. but i cant get more that 5-6fps on games that i used to have ALWAYS 60FPS (vsync)

    XP x64, geforce 9700M GT (mobile).

    Rolling back to 185.xx

    that's the exact problem me and my friend have, for instance DELTA FORCE XTREME = 10fps with the 186/190 drivers even at 640x480 res makes no difference, roll back to 182 = 300fps <------no kidding.

    nvidia must've messed up something for sure.

    Seems rimmer66
    Should calm down a bit

    I tested them out on crysis and unbelievably the drivers were pushing quiet well than usual
    I was getting a much smoother frame rate!
    Think i will stick to them for now.
    Am crysis all day all night :p
