    Yup. This is the reason why I rolled back to 275.33. Too many driver not responding errors in windows. I don't know what the issue is but it is obvious that this driver even in the WHQL form is for the birds. I think this driver build is really a BF3 driver. It gives better BF3 performance but that is about it from what I read...

    It still plays fine for me, though I don't play in 3D or surround anymore (that got old pretty quick).

    Really shame because apart from the crashes it works really well.

    I just got Serious Sam HD : First Encounter and I've noticed that performance tanks when there's water around. I'm running SLI.
    Is this a known problem? IS there any way to fix this?

    Dragon Age 2 is running great with these, perfect 60fps performance all the way with every setting at max. This is a huge improvment, because I had 60fps with my single ATI 5870 from the get go, so this was obviously some driver bug either with AO or tesselation to do with?

    So, who doesn't play Dragon Age II should stay away from these? I don't really understand people who have their system working perfectly, their games running well but they still upgrade the driver everytime Nvidia rolls one out. Then it's the black screen and the roll back.

    well in hope its the same as old + few extra speedup tweaks/optimizations and maybe some old wounds finally patched/fixed?

    I like 270.xx but it has a flaw or two..So i want something better, doh :D

    Only CPU clocked to 4GHZ. I tried it at stock speeds and it still crashes. There goes my Saturday evenings starring at 3DMark11 loops.

    Just tried 2 levels, Oasis and Memphis Sewers. Ran fine. What FPS drop do you see?

    Try Valley of Kings or the beggining level of Oasis, you'll see right away what I'm talking about.
    By the way If you're running at 1080p you'll see that the game drops from 180-200 fps to 50-55.
    Now, I'm running at 6000x1080 it drops from 100-110 to 17fps.
    Well, searching through the net, I've found that's an old bug that neither Croteam or Nvidia bothered to fix.

    Just loaded up the game on my 460sli and 560ti systems and I didn't see the slowdown your experiencing. I also run at 1080p with high settings. Very curious, although I have had water rendering cause problems in the past with certain games with certain drivers. The early days of the half-life2 engine come to mind.

    Open up fraps or msi afterburner and test in one of the levels I've mentioned.
    In that zones peformance tanks a lot compared to the other zones. And don't forget to test with vsync off, and ultra settings.

    Ok I see it now. I wasn't monitoring the FPS so it felt smooth. I turn away from the water and i'm in the 220s, face the water 58-60.

    I remember this water bug that plagued dual-gpu users. Had it on my 4870X2.

    I never ran into that bug in SLI and I played on that level many times in any driver releases. But then I have all my profiles for games installed config thru nvidia inspector instead of the default nvidia predefine settings for the game profiles.

    Great driver!

    BFBC2 increased by 6 fps, The Witcher 2 runs much better. I'd say its an improvement over 275.33,my previous driver. Note however, i excluded HD audio, 3D vision driver and 3D vision controller in the installation. I don't know if this had a positive effect.

    I know it's something to do with windows rounding up numbers or not (in Win7, 59Hz is actually 59.94Hz), but in everyday use what difference does 59hz vs 60hz make ? I haven't encountered any problems or issues eventhough windows system info say 1920x1200@59Hz and speccy says 1920x1200@60Hz :3eyes:
