    hmmm maybe I'll start keeping a set of images to test IQ. I'm pretty sure I won't be able to tell the difference between actually better IQ and placebo.

    What games are you seeing this in? This was happening to me in Wow, usually at login, and pretty much anytime it had to read from the data/cache folder.

    You can surely tell the difference in image quality with Quadro drivers ...

    MUCH sharper textures :nerd:

    well if you do test, first set texture image quality to High quality and then force Anisotropic Filtering in game profile instead of ingame AF, you will notice that quadro uses sharper filtering - it can be more detailed.


    edit: yea like The Sleeper noticed it too :nerd:


    @mad-ogre,

    yea few reported it down clocks as soon as it reaches 60fps or in general it just down clocks for no reason, force maximum performance mode for all games profiles if it helps.

    Might go back to the 265.90 quadros. I tried the smoke test in Mafia 2 (full throttle circle with police cars around giving clouds of smoke) and it stuttered badly with full smoke, quadro only made it a bit jerky with no full stutter.

    Tried L4D2 and looked dark and drab with no punch to the color, quadro looked detailed and colorful.

    Same frame rates in most games but a bit more stutter and much less color and dynamics to the picture.

    I have to say that so far these drivers have been a nice improvement over the WHQL 263.09 set for my set up. Very pleased with the IQ and performance.

    yea i noticed that too, its like they lowered gamma a bit, colors stayed the same here..maybe its more noticeable on TN compared to s-PVA , s-IPS..idk i use s-pva.

    Thats normal in BioShock 2 with SLI, you have to disable SLI for BioShock 2,
    You have to go to NVIDIA Control Panel and then Mange 3D Settings and then
    Program Settings and then BioShock 2: Sea of Dreams and set SLI rendering
    mode to Singe-GPU, now you have no more artifacts, it's a known problem.


    Strange no problem here, GPU 1: 32c and GPU 2: 38c Idel.

    And that with a Room temp of 22,4c

    Fan's runs on 55% 2100 RPM.

    And for some strange reason the GFX Cards never go down to:

    Core: 50 MHz
    Shaders: 101 MHz
    Memory: 135 MHz

    They always stay on:

    Core: 405 MHz
    Shaders: 810 MHz
    Memory: 324 MHz

    In Idel, do somebody know how to make it so that my Cards go down to:

    Core: 50 MHz
    Shaders: 101 MHz
    Memory: 135 MHz

    In Idel??

    Sony 60" lcd but not sure panel type. TN has quicker response, SPVA has better color but slower response.

    Anyway, back to the future,,,er I mean quadro.

    I'm getting this really funky glitch in Bioshock 2, in the gene storage machine where you switch powers, there are funky dancing lines and it flickers black. Defo a driver problem, never had it before.

    Performance wise it is good though and I haven't had any crashes, works good with my O.C.

    Nope. Just loaded a 3rd quarter saved Assocation game and it played perfectly with no issues.

    What problem are you experiencing exactly?

    Good drivers so far, my only problem is AA with NFS HP, it only works with 2x aa, anything else makes the game lockup.....guess its not too big of a deal.
