anyone notice this better on GTX460 SLI than 266.58 ? worth the upgrade ?
well here is the thing, yea i have it enabled (threaded optimization - on), but its fine with 263.15 that's why..
and i have to disable it in TF2 (threaded optimization - off).. no matter what driver or it doesn't feel smooth.
so what did you do with L4d2? used auto or disabled it completely?:nerd:
i just tried these on BO and BC2. with BC2 i usually use 16xCSAA with 2xSS TAA but with these i had to turn CSAA and TAA off or my frmae rates would drop below 60fps. with 260.99 this is not an issue .... also BO micro stutters just like 266.58, danno whats going on with NV drivers since 260.99 for 200 series! they all have issues in my experience.
Didn't work for me for some weird reason, not that I really care that much I can do just fine without nview.
Weird. These drivers cured the microstuttering in BO for me. Perhaps these drivers are better for 4 and 500 fermi series then the 200 series?
ya they seem to be. hasnt been a driver since 260.99 thats been good for my 260's.
I think 200 series users better leave this set alone as they are based upon the 266.58 set and they were total crap for 200 series cards, the quadro 265.90's are 100 times better for 200 series cards, and are tbh, the best drivers yet for GTX260 216.
When I tried TDU 2 with the 265.90's it was smooth with everything on very high except FX which I set on high, and AAx2, game runs superfine.
With the 266.58, complete stutter from beginning to end. Unplayable.
I just wonder if that new Quadro driver 267.05 which came out is any good.
I find changelog on http://banglagamer.com/forums/showthread.php?13538-Forceware-266.77-Win-Vista-7
i don't know but i got fps boost !

It's the same of 266.58.
i had to go back to 260.99! the stuttering in Blops was making it impossible to have a good round of MP. i just hope when i'm forced to upgrade for sli profiles for upcoming games like DNF and Homefront i don't have the micro stuttering issues like all other drivers after 260.99! fricken nvidia, new cards come out and they dont bother testing much on older cards anymore ... i meen seriously, the 200 series cards aren't ancient by any means!
Does anyone knows if this driver fixes the graphical glitches and bugs in Far cry 2 for the older cards?
I posted the fix here -> http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=183887&view=findpost&p=1177278 and after a month NVIDIA still didn't integrate my fix in the 267.05, I didn't check the 266.77.
270.28 will be out soon hopefully will be worth a update.
ManuelG probably didn't notice. PM him and ask him kindly to inform the driver team.
I sent him 3 PMs a month ago and I didn't receive any answer.
Black Ops has always run fine on my GTX 295 with no stuttering and works fine with all of the NVidia drivers I've tried.
this drivers realy revived my 260 i can play metro 2033 in very high at 1920.180p never seen the game so smooth and crysis 2 a big fps boost excelent but i noticed that the grafics card was mor hunger of power i dont know if that is good or bad but she is already oced and i noticed som stange temps playing aliens vs predator the card temps boost from normal 79 72 to 86c anybody else got this problem the kuality was awosome but temp that she never have reached before
