    This driver ROCKS! I get like 59fps all the way through single loop of the Street Fighter 4 Benchmark but man SF4 HATES HATES AA man.

    TF2 I get the same performance with the 190's as I do with this
    L4D I get a 10FPS boost over 190's with this
    UT3 I get the same performance as the 190's over this

    Drivers work great. Still the still shot flicker in TF2, but thats no real big deal.

    These drivers work fine on my rig. But I can't see some advantage, results are same like I had with 185.85 (Vista 64 SP2). Anyway, they works fine so I will keep them.

    Working well for me too. No problems just as there hasn't been for me for as far back as I can remember.

    Okay, so I downloaded and installed these drivers for my system (Windows 7 64 bit), after using the 185.85 drivers since they came out in the beginning of May. Everything seems to be working nice and dandy until I notice that in Far Cry 2, the vegetation details seem to have been scaled back. Without changing any of the graphics options, you will see that the grass is less detailed with the latest drivers.

    What's going on here? Is Nvidia trying to cut corners? I haven't noticed any other decrease in quality/detail but this is enough for me not to want to use the new drivers.

    I'm running a GTX 285, Quad core @3 Ghz, 4 gigs ram and Win 7 64 bit.

    Btw, I posted on the Nvidia forums, but it's kinda dead over there.

    I dont see detail as being "scaled back" at all. The snapshots seem taken at different angles which may account for that.

    I realize that I didn't take the screenshots in the exact same position but there are absolutely none of the taller grass stalks with shoots, anywhere, with these new drivers. I've traveled to different locations on the map and everywhere it's the same. This is in dx10 mode. Can anyone else confirm what I'm describing here?

    190.15 fixed this, but I'm not sure about this release.

    For those having trouble with scaling, just to make sure, but everyone is connected through DVI on the monitors right? And, if applicable, the input is set to Digital?
    My scaling only works with the DVI cable, and if for some reason you have a VGA cable connected at the same time, just make sure the DVI link is the active one.
