    Im using F13 on my 965P-S3 Rev3.3 now with AHCI On and DPC is 100 or less, if i turn AHCI off my DPC Latency rises back to 500-1200.

    i temporary fix this issue by using "xwindows dock" at idle speeds. it uses %1-3 GPU so , no more spikes at idle desktop.

    that won't change anything, its for PCI not pcix.. i suggest you lower it back to 64 or 32; 64 if you use pci soundcard.

    I see high latency (~3900 to ~4300) when in 2D clocks (50MHz core), and the latency drops (~100 to ~180) while running Kombustor.

    Latest 260.xx drivers fixed the issue for me.
    But there still alpha drivers. Official/Beta will probably be released on monday/tuesday
    Before 7000/8000, now it's always in the green zone.

    The 260.63 beta drivers for Windows XP are plane awesome its almost unbelievable how much they improved the DPC calls this is amazing work :)
    If they would be an award for Windows Driver for Devices Nvidias Driver Engineering Team would get that :)
    [​IMG]

    Before i had above 100 now i never reach that anymore @ idle awesome (Windows XP)

    Though as i most probably gonna move to ATI/AMD next month "only if it's no Paper launch" i hope ATI/AMDs Driver work isn't really that bad as you always read about it, though it's good to get his own Experience (from time to time) if it's really that bad i could even think of moving back but im no average joe user so i guess i gonna be able to survive even with ATI/AMDs driver as well, last experience with them was with the 9800 pro so long time past.

    Since Geforce 3 up to the 8800 GT i used Nvidia now after that things changed though i couldn't left Nvidia anymore :infinity: 1 reason for that definitely was the Driver experience, so really Nvidia does a perfect job if it can even keep someone like me just because of the Driver for so long respect for that achievement. Seeing now another great milestone improvement ehh makes me think if i hmm nah i gonna move :nerd:

    So though if you a Nvidia user and are happy with this improvement like i am go also over to the Nvidia Forums and post you congrats over their Nvidias Engineering team did a excelent job Debuging this and improving it throughout the entire Hardware base, and a thx for their work from the users i guess is a nice present for them as they don't get any Awards and money isn't everything ;)

    hehe..greetz Beta..

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So for known Fact..the new Beta Drivers: 260.63, 260.53 and the Quadro Diver 259.57 fixes the DPC Latency issues, at least on my p45 Chipset...For other Chipsets we need some testers that test and post theyr Results here, like p35, etc etc..

    My DPC Latency was fixed after installing the new beta driver 260.63. My mobo is a MSI p7n sli-fi.

    Jup, i was the one that talked to Gigabyte and Nvidia, but not MSI, i dont have an msi Card..And i have to say Gigabyte had an great Support and helped very Quickly, they also reproduced that problem in one day and testet a lot of Chipsets..And allways where keeping us up to date..Really nice support they have ...
    Kein Problem, hab ich gerne gemacht, wir haben ja alle was davon ;)
    No prob, im just helping out...

    And Thanks for the Testing guys...
    So it really looks like that this issue is gone with these Drivers and in the future...
