have you updated the bios though?
Yes I am using the latest bios that is supposed to work fine, at least it is listed as supported by my motherboard and bios version.
Nobody knows the DWORD for enabling "Show GPU load balancing" in the registry?
Am I correct with this statement:?
If I put single gpu acceleration in the global settings, it will still switch automatically to the correct SLI mode when running a game that has a preconfigured SLI profile related to it? Or should i put Multi-GPU acceleration in the global settings as well? Or should I leave it at the setting AUTO?
Also should I put single or multi display acceleration in the global settings in the new control panel?
Now this is just the assumption i've made ever since I got my 6600's in sli but when you but it on single gpu acceleration it uses only 1 gpu. Put it on auto or one of the sli modes(afr, etc...)
No idea what the dword for the load balancing is, you shouldn't need one its suppose to appear in the control panel(maybe you can't see the load balancing on the 7950?) I haven't seen any reviews with the load balancing other then with quad sli.
The single and multi display acceleration stuff is related to using multiple monitors
To get access to all SLI features, + overclocking, set coolbits to 1A
set it to 1B if you want SLI features + overclocking + advanced D3d options
Yes it is true but it shows the fact that the use of the source engine's WEAK version of HDR is giving these drivers trouble at my resolution on this graphics card(High 20s Yeah right). But anyways I am back to the 91.28s everything is running normal again. Except for the minimal boost in IQ the .31s gave but oh well at least everything else is running well.
This "weak" HDR that you call is actually called "int HDR" or "integer HDR".
It's a fairly cheap method of getting fully working HDR effects.
Honestly i have nothing against it as it looks pretty much the same as FP HDR, plus you can use int HDR+FSAA on any graphic card, not just Radeon x1000 series...
I noticed this temporary problem every once in awhile if I try to change the TV settings in the new control panel when a video is open in MPC w/ VMR9(Renderless). Re-opening the file seemed to fix it for me.
I still get the SLI message LoooL But I really would like to know if this set is as good as 91.28 in terms of performance?? Cause I liked 91.28 a lot and this seem to be equal but I have no banchmarktools because I don't trust them that much and I have no patience to run test after test
Exactly, thats why I call it weak since it pretty much is support for lower end GPUs.
just uncheck "highquality" and it will be in colour again..
strange bug.. .. mp10 with latest "hotfix" makes it black and white.
Yeah, i've been noticing this thing for long time. Isn't it funny, last time i checked you needed High Quality mode in order to use hardware video decoding capabilities... But it's not woring with regualr videos as they look B&W or with purple colors all over the image...
Yea, posted then just read that, lol. That seemed to do the trick. But why doesn't it do it with Pure Pwnage episodes 1-4?
there is a bug with the water in FEAR on x64 with these... the water flashes and flickers and generally bugs out.
oh and the tray icon thing is annoying... but fixable...
I went back to an 84.xx driver for now.
not good for me...
84.xx's bug still there(small one,though):
have some texture error when first time create a game in cs
become normal after changelevel
and 91.31 will have some random blackbox in cs map de_nuke
(it happen 2 or 3 times in my 2 hours play)
slow in fear
81.98 84.20b 91.31b
min 27 26 26
avg 44 52 47
max 84 117 108
and the temperature goes up for 1c
Chaos Theory is crashing to a blue screen (because of nv4_disp or something). This happens specifically (may happen in other places, but I've encountered it at this specific place) at the start of the second part of the North Korean level (when you have to retrieve the drives from the plane). I have Shader Model 3 enabled, and as it almost finishes caching, it goes to a BSOD.
Anyone else getting this?
This is with the x32 version.
I haven't played the game that far yet. I can however comment that with the nVidia 7900GTX these 91.31 drivers cause a lot of texture corruption in a lot of applications, battlefield 2 is only one of them. I rolled back to 84.21 to make sure and the textures returned to normal. These 91.31 drivers have very nice IQ but unfortunately they are true BETA drivers and they have a lot of bugs in them
Here's my recent driver history with 3dMark06... no performance gain for me

Crashes in Media PLayer Classic when running avi in fullscreen. in the x64 bit version. ZoomPLayer works fine.
Great. Games just started randomly CTD right now. Back to 87.08s again. =/
