    Don't suppose these have a new fixed profile for Bulletstorm?

    Well they certainly contain a SLI profile, yes, but I don't have the game (or SLI) so I can't answer whether anything is 'fixed' or not unfortunately. Sorry.

    So what's with the vendors releasing drivers?

    I've notice palit is on the band wagon too.

    The 266.xx and these drivers are broken for SHOGUN2 demo in SLI.... getting worse fps than with 1 card. I went back to 260.99 and enabled AFR2 (as they do not have SHOGUN2 profile) and got double the FPS, SLI working perfectly!

    Also with the 266.xx and these drivers I found TDU2 (test drive unlimited 2) to be stuttering, almost like micro stutter but couldnt be that becaus SLI does not work in TDU2 with any drivers.

    Again going back to 260.99 fix this issue and the game is much smoother.

    So overall these new 266 drivers really dont work for me with GTX275, really disappointed with Nvidia and their abandoning of older GPU's whcih are still powerful enough for most titles.

    Also whats the deal with Nvidia and the slowdown on beta releases? We used to get 1 or 2 a month with decent SLI profiles and improvements, now since Oct there have been scarce releases from various sources but not Nvidia themselves. Just seems like Nvidia is not putting the effort in anymore... what about all the SLI owners who purchased two cards and have no profiles for the latest games?

    Who wants to wait 3 or 4 weeks for SLI to work, by then you've finished the game, maybe PC gaming is dying or Nvidia is simply moving away from PC gaming.

    No, i don't think so, i have a Intel Core i7 OC to 3.66GHz and 6GB 1866MHz Ram
    and 2x Geforce GTX 460 1GB (SLI), and my hole system uses 465W when i play
    Crysis 1.

    So if you gone do it buy a more watt PSU like 800W.


    GeForce GTX 560 Ti

    * On your average system the card requires you to have a 500 Watt power supply unit.

    GeForce GTX 560 Ti in 2-way SLI

    * A second card requires you to add another ~175 Watts. You need a
    700+ Watt power supply unit if you use it in a high-end system (800+ to a
    KiloWatt is recommended if you plan on any overclocking).

    Just answer the guy, just say yes or no, i know this is for Nvidia drivers
    forum but, you still can give him the right answer.

    EVGA is Nvidia's biggest partner that's why I guess they give nvidia the drivers out first. Before Nvidia loads it up on their site.

    Am I the only 400 series card user with a issue when using 8x AA or higher with these drivers? Lately when playing certain games after a few minutes I start getting freeezes that last about a second and a weird buzzing noise. Does this sound like a system problem or have other people had issues with 8x AA and games like Dead Space 2 and the original Crysis? Thanks for any input!

    These drivers are great even in the open GL for IL2 are just pure awesomeness. sharp, clear IQ..

    However as usual they forget about the display link graphics portion and now the USB displays don't likey NVIDIA UI NCP. :biggun:
