    lol, you may be right, but i would hope they don't need the driver team to help fix the forum ;) that would be pretty sad!

    It looks like there's a v304.87 driver, presumably exclusively for the new GTX 660/GTX 660 Ti cards that should (hopefully!) be leaked soon as these can be easily modded to run on all NVIDIA cards. I found it mentioned on a certain site that decided to post their review of these new cards early (just Google it and you'll find the review easily enough).

    WoW crashes (then recovers) in DX11 using WHQL drivers with a GTX 570. Any hope of new drivers fixing this?

    what you saying is personal experience, mine is quite the opposite.

    i am no fanboy by any means but i have been nvidia user for most of my IT life (i was a 3dfx fanboy and i stay one to this day, voodoo 1&2 changed my childhood!). i did make two excursions to ati, with series 4 and 6 and both times there were issues and overall ati engineering always seemed sub par to nvidia.

    this is a subjective experience that goes hand in hand with the popular opinion that nvidia drivers > ati drivers, is it actually true? who knows, i would certainly say yes. :D

    Somehow I don't think we'll see a new driver until the forums are back up and there's no sign of those being back up and running any time soon either despite a post on their website on 24th July saying that they'd be up "soon" (I really, really despise NVIDIA's definition of 'soon' as in my experience it translates to "weeks" or even "months", and that is not "soon" in my book!). ManuelG claimed certified R304 drivers would be out mid- to late-July so that timeline has clearly been and gone.

    Haven't the forums been down for almost SIX WEEKS now? Whoever hacked the site must have really done some damage for them to be down for that long.

    ManuelG posted it on the NVIDIA forum before they went down sometime in early July from memory. He said (I believe) that the next certified driver would be released mid to late July although I obviously cannot check that.

    How would the forums being hacked affect a certified release?? I can understand it affecting leaked betas, but the officials are posted on the website. I am not as well informed on the whole matter, just a bit confused.

    Well, without a forum there's nowhere for people to post if they have issues so NVIDIA may have intentionally held back on releasing the certified drivers until their forums are back up and running. Whenever that might be...

    Have a feeling they're waiting to release the 660Ti with a new set of drivers, remember how slow driver updates were before the 680 released? :p

    The forum is 1 one the way for reporting issues.
    Their customers feedback is still up and running...

    People working for the Forums are probably not the same team developing drivers.
    My guess is beginning of next week.

    SLI works fine there already. Just set force AFR2 and you're good to go.

    passed early august and no driver, no word from ManuelG.

    Somehow I don't think we are getting a driver until the forums are up which is a really ridiculous amount of time to get forums up and running. Every other forum hack has come up within what a week? Valve, Bioware, etc.
