    Upgrading from 180.60 CUDA drivers... +2 FPS in GTA IV benchmark... Crysis and others remain the same. Keepers for me. :banana:

    Seems to be good driver, just the GTAIV wich is supposed they add this time doesn't appear on my detected games in the prolifes, but if I choose to show all, well it does. I wonder if that profile is working because it doesn't detect automatically the game. Anyway, some bench numbers.

    Ok so I've wiped all drivers and reinstalled the 180.84 beta's and they have made an improvement for me. When I load the game it now defaults the render and texture values to High but still no SLi support. Anyway I left it at the default and loaded it up. As soon as I get outside the flat the game stutters and then drops to about 2 fps before I have to ctrl alt del and shut the game down.

    When I try again I max every detail out and leave the texture level at medium and bingo, very playable and looking very nice. I play through the first couple of missions all without a problem (although I still haven't got the first mission achievement for some reason).

    Anyway, high texture details defo seem to have a memory leak from what I have seen as it just gets progressively worse before dying. Even when I load a later game save it starts ok and then just drops to 2fps so here's hoping the patch sorts this and SLi support out.

    Also why is it that when I apply a new graphics setup that works and then close the game down, the next time I load it up it's set the graphics back to its default again.

    I think its hilarious that I can max out Crysis Warhead at 1680x1050 but can't get anywhere near that on GTA. Bad coding.

    It is the game. GTA 4 is a known crappy port of a game.

    Running very nicely. Good IQ, speed, and smoothness. That said, better than the 180.70??? Not much that I can see yet. Main game is IL-2 1946.

    OBTW: I had noticed over the last weeks that the first time I opened my mail or my Firefox browser after startup or reboot that the programs stared really slowly. After that no problem. The 180.70 and these 180.84's have corrected that. They snap open even on first launch. Anyone else notice anything like this??

    Regards,

    Works perfectly for me, not a single crash. Crappy for some, but not crappy for everyone.

    I'll be getting the game (GTA IV) next week, just hope this driver with my rig gives me a playable experience. I'm pretty excited about the game.

    Well, that makes sense (the CPU dependence). Here and elsewhere, it seems the folks having decent performance are the ones with either really fast dual cores or a quad core. An older dual core like an overclocked E6300 or 4400+ (etc) just can't handle it too well.

    This is the first game that's made me slightly question getting the E8400 over the Q6600. Thankfully @4+ghz, it still keeps up. ...for now.

    Like I prommised but my dualboot doesn't work anymore.. so i did this:

    Vista Business Sp1 (180.84beta)

    all next setting are with 25/35/25/10 (v.dist/d.Q/cars/shadow)

    1920x1200 low/high [34.41] low/highest [35.02]
    1680x1050 low/high [38.29] low/highest [38.88]
    1600x1200 low/high [37.99] low/highest [39.36]

    1920x1200 med (won't do the trick with 512mb)
    1680x1050 med/high [39.98] med/highest [39.88]
    1600x1200 med/high [39.51] med/highest [38.75]

    Because my 24" is max. 1920x1200... meaning 16:10 (ratio)

    I play with the following 1680x1050 MED/HIGHEST [35/40/25/10]

    But still i have the following problem: (crashes 2 desktop)

    No multicore rendering

    Multicore rendering is for those who use onboard video and has a powerful cpu, then some rendering things are done in the cpu insted of the gpu. In those cases they get better performance, but if you have a good video card you get better performance letting the gpu do all his job.

    Are these drivers good for other games than GTA4? Specially how about racesims(GTR2/rFactor/iRacing etc)?
