Should will this work on nvidia 8400gs. ?
I got some serious crash yesterday playing UT3. I'll keep trying because apart from the crashing they run sweet. If the locks return then I'll have to back down to 171.23.
XP 32bit 174.20 report, compare with my last 171.23:
1. COD4 experienced no problem, even after I've played 4 missions, 3 in a row and one selected from the root menu. Mine is the G80 series 8800GTS 320MB, don't know if that has anything to do with...
2. Crysis....benchmark full runs and achieved average 46fps, wow...I don't remember I score that much the last I checked.
3. COH...benchmark result @ 58fps average.
4. WiC...hmmm, average fps loss 1-2fps, wonder does that have to do with Firefox on at the same time? (7th patch loaded)
Show that it works.
Has anyone tested this with the 7950GX2? Any input would be great. Been looking for a driver to run COD4 with on this card without the black models.
WOW, I'm having awesome FPS increase with all my games, including Crysis. FSX has also gain better FPS. Compared to my previous 169.x drivers. I highly recommend them….
I crash with these drivers
So do I! and I was beginning to think that something went wrong.
Crashes in Test Drive unlimited too after a few min of playing, this driver in not good.
EDIT: I was wrong, it was´nt the driver. The problem was the game itself, some weird s**t happend.
Meh, I'll keep going with the 171.17 drivers. They've been working flawlessly for weeks.
All the 174.xx have caused instability for me, the 171.17 whql are the most stable and better performing so far..
gonna try the 171.17 'cause this one keeps crashing on me.
I got some serious crash when playing Timeshift. Returned to 171.23.
When i installed this beta driver (version 174.20), and tested with 3DMARK06, i finded some bugs... TEST: VERTEX SIMPLE score dropped to 148 MTEXELS. (with 169 series driver i had score 223,969 MTEXELs !!)
Next: When i running canyon fly... oh my god, its worst than previous driver.
All other scores are much higher with this beta driver !!!!
When i played games, the fps are higher with beta driver...
My graphic card is ASUS 8600GT overclocked to 810MHz GPU, 1782MHz shader, 1700MHz DDR3. without Vmod, only rivatuner used.
yeah, no complaints about the speed. if only it didn't crash every time.
