Never had AA forced in CP to begin with.
I haven't tried these drivers yet, but WoW has been the only game that I have had issues with. BSOD's, rebooting, freezing. I think I just have to keep the fan cranked up and it usually works ok.
Ok , tested them on my specs :
Far Cry 2
Forceware 180. 43 vista32 - Res 1440x900 Ultra Quality - No AA
Forceware DOX 180.44 - Res 1440x900 Ultra Quality - No AA
Forceware 180.48 wqhl - Res 1440x900 Ultra Quality - No AA
3d Mark06 - Default options (1280x1024) Forceware 180.43
Points : 9019

All the 180.xx series has no difference of performance with my system
I'm locking up quite regularly with CoDW@W and have tried virtually everything to resolve. Question: what keyboard are you using? I'm suspicious of the software used with Logitech's G-15, I recall there were compatibility issues with a game or two awhile back. I've unstalled the keyboard software, in the brief time I've had to test (2 hours) no lockups yet.
PR is the only reason I put the BF2 disc in the player.
I have a agp MSI 6800ultra system that I use eVGA precision tool with and it works great, fyi.
I game on a 46" monitor and for PR Ive always used 16xQ aa during gaming. But with these drivers 16xQ aa apears to only be like 4 or 8xaa during play, the jaggies are much bigger on my screen than before with the 180.43. I also have a 20" sony trinitron crt with my p4 agp card and I cant see the difference from 4xaa to 16xaa on it because the screen is to small at 20" to ever tell the difference. But with a much bigger monitor you can really tell the difference, for me anyway.
This are no go for Lotro for win vista 64 with DX10 enable shadows of
I get flickering blocky shadows.
Only drivers that work for me are 178.13 and .24 but I can't control the fans.
The 180.48 re enable me to control my gpu fan but not good for my online gaming,same thing with the beta 180.43.:biggun:
No problems here with Cod WAW
Don't know if its been mentioned, but these drivers double the frame rates in UT3.
Check those problem areas in Shangrila or Deck - frame rates doubled, or more!!!! Absolutely freaky. Someone please confirm.
Wow... I got almost double that performance with my 8800gtx, it seems youre cpu is really bottlenecking that card?? My score is something like 45minimum 60 avg 85 max?? Its on a 1360x768 HDTV, but my resolution isnt that much lower than youre 1440x900 res...
these are slower for me in Fallout than the last set of 178.xx whql
Nothing happens in PCSX2 here on my 8800GT... How the heck do you know the clocks dropped and its not an emulation bug?
Playing Fallout 3 with Antialiasing 4x - nothing crashed.. no probs..
Im using a Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Keyboard 7000 (Bluetooth).
It's never caused problems with previous drivers, I think it's just a cock-up by Nvidia.
I'm able to oc my shader core up +50 which is cool.
AA quality is very bad in crysis with these drivers.
Well, I've had the lockups with pretty much all the recent drivers. Removing the keyboard software and moving to a Saitek keyboard "seems" to have resolved the problem for me and the 180.48's are no longer locking up the game.
Yeah , could be the cpu , but i cant change motherboard , cpu and ram for the moment ...i use socket 939..maybe if i overclock the cpu more it would be better ? how far can i push a dual core 4800+ toledo?
Because EVGA Precision shows the clocks dropping and the emulation performance reflects it. It is nothing to do with the actual emulation which runs perfectly with 178.xx drivers.
it will only let me choose which card if i disable SLi. it's been like than for me ever since physx has been included with nv drivers.
if your in sli both cards excellerate physX.
Weird... I overclocked my card perfectly with RivaTuner 2.11 and these drivers. Nothing wrong in PCSX2 here. c1:
