    If drivers, software, hardware, etc are under NDA it becomes a legal issue to allow them to be made public before the NDA expires. In most cases, stating that the threads are closed due to an active NDA, is a violation of the NDA in and of itself. NDA's typically forbid disclosure of any and all information related to whatever subjects they cover....including admittance of existance.

    I'm liking these drivers so far... played NFS: Hot Pursuit for over an hour with forced 16xAA and Transparency MS enabled with no issues whatsoever. Yes, memory usage is high but then it was before with earlier drivers when I tried forcing AA even though it never worked. I suspect it is an engine issue myself not a driver bug as no other game has high memory usage. Well Divinity 2 does but without forced AA it uses a 1 GB of video memory anyway!

    GPU Caps Viewer v1.9.5's OpenCL Julia GPU test works at long last too unlike the 263.09 and 263.14 drivers, as confirmed by another poster earlier. NVIDIA Fixed Aspect Scaling is working properly too.

    One oddity I did have though was a warning while installing the drivers that they weren't certified yet when I ran DXDiag (64-bit) it shows that the drivers are WHQL logo'd!!! :3eyes:

    These are keepers for me until NVIDIA release the 'fixed' version officially next week.

    These are pretty good for me to. Only played Black Ops, but they are on a par with the 265.90's. They don't load the maps quite as fast, but still pretty good

    These drivers FINALLY fixed the issue with Digital Color Format resetting to RGB every time the resolution changes.

    This means I can stick it on YCbCr and it will actually stay there!

    Thanks nVidia and the poster for sharing these :banana:

    These drivers are great for 3DMark11. It shows that my SLI is finally enabled and I went from P6480 to P7968

    The P6480 is using 265.90

    These drivers seem okay so far in most games, but they are(like many other gurus have pointed out already) causing Bad Company 2 MP to crash after about 5-10 min of gameplay. The screen go all black, and then white. I have to ctrlaltdelete back to desktop and terminate the game. This did not happen with 263.09 drivers. Think I'll jump back to them, and just wait for the final drivers next week(Hopefully)...

    The two threads are confusing so this one should be closed and BTW he couldn't even get your name correct so do not worry about him !
