    The increase in speed is over the 175.19 drivers which, for whatever reason, are still the "latest" non-beta drivers on the driver page. I don't know what they are calling the 177.83s but they aren't beta drivers or production drivers. They are... uhh... special I guess.

    I did some testing with City of Heroes. Looks like no significant difference at all between these and the 177.83s in that game.

    Code:
    177.83
    Demo:		C:\Games\City Of Heroes\client_demos\Frames Per Sec Test.CohDemo
    Screen:		2048x1536 (80 Hz) Fullscreen
    CPU:		2 x 2666 Mhz Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU          6700  @ 2.66GHz

    Avg*	60.8	11.9	153.0	12318	202.45
    
    * Note that first run is not used to compute average.
    
    177.92

    2	59.2	8.7	148.1	11993	202.45
    3	60.8	11.0	159.7	12303	202.46

    Avg*	60.0	9.9	153.9	12148	202.46
    
    * Note that first run is not used to compute average.
    So, unless there's something specific you need to fix, it's probably best to give these a miss.

    P.S. Zloth tries to kick Mumakil but slips on one of those damned banannas

    Just a quick helpful heads up. For the couple people that couldn't get it to install where it says that nothing has been updated, you do know there's a workaround, right? All you do is unrar the .exe and delete the PhysX installer .exe from the unrar'd files. Then it will install from the setup in that directory without that problem. Probably best to do this anyway since PhysX went WHQL already and you'll want to install that driver instead.

    pPractically an entire page of "downloading" These threads are getting more and more useless and painful to scan through. *sigh* :bang:

    No bud. The increase in speed is from Nvidia messing with the IQ. COD4 looks blurry with no AF/AA. Textures look washed out. You can force it on in game or with the CP it makes no dif. There are many people reporting this not just me. Also it's not just with COD4 the problem exists.

    177.83 isnt "special" they are WHQL yes...but they are the last what I call "working" set to date. 177.89 has the same problem in games as 177.92


    177.83 ist he last WHQL set not 175.19.

    Yeah, I know the workaround, I just wished they could make it work without any "workarounds", thats all.

    They look ok, and I'm going to test some games tonight. The only complaint I have and I sent it in to Nvidia, is that they are bundling the Physx Software with the damn drivers. They need to be seperated cause right now I'm not using the Physx as I'm not playing any games that use it. So either make them two different installs or make the installer prompt to ask you if you wish to install it or not. Otherwise I had to remove it once I loaded the driver which required another reboot.

    just my 2cents on them...
