    You must mean the Russian version. The US version isn't out until next week. Expect some driver tweaks for it after then, but not before.

    Hello, i received my card yesterday. Went back to NVIDIA and sold my 4870. All fine, played cod4 about 4 hours, runs nice. My problem is, when i use a physx support application, its crashs. FluidMark, system crash, physic part from 3dMark Vantage, crash. Nurien Demo with physx on its crashes after 20 Seconds, physx off its works. I used the new 177.92 graphic drivers and the included physx 8.08.18 drivers. Tried installing, deinstalling 2 times. Anybody a clue?

    That's a workaround for the bug that puts clocks down while gaming.
    No more 2d/3d mode since last 3 drivers they released.
    And as far as i can see, nvidia keeps it like this, full time 3d energy wasting mode :)

    Hi,

    does someone know if the HDTV support is working properly with 1080p resolution in this driverset?

    thank you.

    I found these to be the worst of the 177.xx drivers for UT3 on my 7950GT SLI rig. I heard similar sentiments earlier in the thread and my benchmarks confirm it: 174.74 is still the king as far as Unreal Tournament 3 (and Crysis, according to another post last week) is concerned.

    After upgrading from an 8600GT to a 9600GT I now get an A Ranking in the DMC4 performance test. These drivers don't seem too bad with DMC4 compared to the last few sets. The performance gain is without a doubt from my video card upgrade but I found even with the new card, the driver is rock solid. Anyone else get to test DMC4 with 177.92 yet?

    Went ahead and installed the PhysX drivers also.

    3DM Vantage w/o PhysX installed: P9421
    3DM Vantage with PhysX enabled: P12231 (H7861)

    GPU points still the same, just over 10000 on both [Performance] runs, but 30% diff in total score...how would my fps be with PhysX enabled game ? 30% up ? LOL...nah, 50% off maybe...nice cheat nvidia...:biggun:

    OC'ing (GTX 260 @ 756/1512/1242) with EVGA Precision Tool, driver doesn't make my card go in 2D mode very often.

    physx helps cpu processing, not gpu processing :puke2:

    physx is all about more advanced physics calculation, and faster one, nothing about graphics

    I find them very bugged confronting them with 175.16... Mass Effect is much more unstable.

    Increased idle temps and extremely unpredictable clock mode behaviour with a gtx 280, going back to 177.89 which had no issues with my system.

    Vista x64

    issue detected on vista x64 and GF8800 ultra on the following games :

    - Dekaron ( EU version of 2moons ) : The application quit unexpectely after a few minutes of movement in game.
    Does not appear when using 177.79 .

    - Tabula rasa : nvlddmkm crash and recover in boucle after a few minutes of movement in game.
    After this kind of crash, the recovering keep continuing under vista desktop.
    Only way to return to a normal state is to restart vista.

    - Guildwars : no crash
    - HL2, Source games : no crash
    - UT3 w/ PhysX : No crash
    - 3d mark 2006 or vintage : no crash

    I will go back to 177.83 using a full uninstall of nvidia drivers , since a direct install on 177.92 didn't fix.

    Something is not right with this driver. I got the "Display Driver nvlddmkm stopped responding, has successfully recovered" error while running Folding @ Home last night. I did get a new PSU yesterday so my new 9600GT would have more than enough power. Went from a Enermax Noisetaker 420w to a CoolerMaster eXtreme Power 600w. Amperage on the +12v rails is the same as the previous PSU I had, which is 32A combined. I don't believe it's a PSU or hardware issue as I had this error on the 8600GT with Forceware 177.89 and I got this error while Folding with that configuration. Luckily games run rock solid, no issues whatsoever there, it just happens whenever I run Folding @ Home.
