    This a no go for me for Lotro.
    Since all the 180's drivers have flickering blocky shadows with DX10 enable.
    Only the 178's works for me.
    This version let me have the fan control back instead of the previous beta and the new whql.

    These drivers are slower than the latest WHQL but IQ seems improved to me and Fallout 3 seems to be running a little better. Here are some benchmark comparisons.

    That means tht this is most likely a quadro driver with a modified inf file.

    How's the IQ with this driver? Does AA work?

    Here is my FC2 benchmark score´s. I just tried both the .60 and .70 driver, and to me it seems the .60 driver is somewhat better atleast on FC2.

    180.60 cuda

    dx10

    * Average Framerate: 61,18
    * Max. Framerate: 82,61
    * Min. Framerate: 48,22

    dx9

    * Average Framerate: 53,44
    * Max. Framerate: 76,92
    * Min. Framerate: 41,75

    180.70

    dx10

    * Average Framerate: 56,38
    * Max. Framerate: 76,27
    * Min. Framerate: 45,76

    dx9

    * Average Framerate: 52,46
    * Max. Framerate: 74,71
    * Min. Framerate: 40,52

    The 180.60 driver is a definit keeper!!

    If you already got one (8.10.13), you don't need it anymore.

    These (180.70) are Quadro Performance Drivers... für workstations, not for consumer computers.
    This is also the reason, why they are supporting so much cards, chips and integrated chipsets...

    So the EXE is for quadros und you - as a consumer - may ignore this additional thing.

    Thinking, this is answered now...

    No.
    This one is a full referenced Qaudro Performance Driver for deveolpment.
    For this kind of drivers its normal to support most of common cards/chips...

    Please do an apple-to-apple comparisation here...
    You couldn't compare FW w/physix enabled to FW wo/physix.

    What are you talking about, FC2 doesnt use physX and FC2 bench is just a reference to performance. As many play the game benching the game is what most want to read. Instead of judging what everyone else write´s, maybe you could do some benchies youre self, nothing you said has anything valuable to this thread. Im sorry, but thats what I think.

    Btw, both drivers support physx so what are you on about?

    well i had the recent .48's and with this .70 i beat the 20,000 3d06mark for the first time with 20,255 so i give it the thumbs up, i was top end of 19k before.

    also i installed the drivers using the regular install, then ran the performance tweak afterwards (i ran it first thinking it was a seperate driver, but it didn't update driver version - it's how i twigged).

    This is not a performance tweak, this is a separate driver for 3D applications aka 3DS Max, Maya, Lightwave .... :)
