    If it's an Unreal engine game those changes could be interesting though. I'll give it a try.

    Seriously, wth is going on with Nvidia's driver dept.

    Where are the 256.xx drivers and why even bother with a driver release for an unreleased game? How about support for a released game like SC:Conviction.

    Very poor showing IMHO.

    So it wasn't just me that I couldn't get it to show a profile for Splinter Cell Conviction or Assassin's Creed 2?

    Thanks for the update ;) Guess I tried the wrong .exe in the first place.

    I can confirm what Wanny said, there is an AC2 one but nothing for SC :(

    You can make your own working SLI profile using nHancer by using the SC-Double Agent profile as a base. Obviously delete all the 'DA exe's' and add the SC-Conviction exe.

    Enable AFR2 and use '00000041 Unreal 3' (3rd one down) under AA Compatibility.

    Didn't really see any huge FPS jumps but the 2nd card did kick in (which it hadn't done beforehand).

    They should have just added the GTX 480 4-way SLi support into the other hotfix driver, then they would have only needed to release the 1x hotfix, the muppets. :p

    These arn't downclocking for me, anyone else got the same problem? Gonna reinstall .55 and see if it fixes it!

    Edit:

    Reinstalled .55 and the downclocking issue went away.

    Yeah, I'm not even going to bother. It would be nice to see a new driver sometime in May that adds some real performance gains, and fixes.

    Fixing the stutter in Battlefield Bad co 2 MP and the 59hz refresh bug would be nice too.
