    I'm running 163.16 beta at the moment but may well give these a try as the last WHQL Quadro drivers gave superb performance and IQ in games.
    Looking at the supported cards though I might need a modded inf?

    Please rename the thread title to show this driver is originally a Quadro one.

    I like em alot, they're great, no problems for non quadro cards, i've played Fear combat for an hour and hadn't had any problems or slowdowns, they're far better then 160.02 ones where.

    I've read that it also fixes a memory leak in some 3d app., i'm using xp-32bit btw. Well in Fear it does seem to help alot, in Factory map didn't get any slowdowns, got to test some more, but defenetly keepers for now :D

    Performance in games the same as 163.11. Very responsive indeed as a poster said before. Delay opening videos or pictures is gone. IQ very good.

    Keepers for me so far.

    Primary "destination" of these drivers are professional applications. And i can't really remember since when GRAW2 belongs between those...

    So why they fixed the Digital Vibrance problem in Quadro set, but they cant fix it in the Geforce 8 set, what is the matter, they are getting paid and we paid.
