    Can you use the INF from the v305.67 driver? Mind you, I'm not sure there's much point in me updating the drivers as I suspect these are just a certified-only-for-GTX-660-Ti version of the v305.67 drivers I'm currently using.

    *EDIT*

    I'm WRONG as this driver only has OpenGL 4.2 not 4.3 like the v305.67 drivers. Somewhat confusing really.

    I wouldn't, well if you're using international driver you can use my INF - it supports all gpus, except 660Ti.



    Anyway these are a little older compared to 305.67 dev driver.


    305.68: r304_70-61

    305.67: r304_83-25
    305.53: r304_83-17

    Thanks. That's makes sense as the 305.53 and 305.67 drivers have OpenGL 4.3 whereas the 305.68 ones are still 4.2. Seems odd to number the driver version higher though, especially when the internal number is older. These should really be 305.52 or lower IMO. :3eyes:

    Well you need a International driver. Sorry for confusion with main links, but I prefer international..

    True they're still opengl 4.2, agree kinda funny :D

    305.67 are smoother in BF3, with stabler fps + Aero on.

    With these 305.68 I must use aero basic to get same smoothness & less fps fluctuations.


    I will go back to 305.67 for now :)

    Release notes from 305.68 drivers mentions 305.72...
    ''Changes and Fixed Issues in Version 305.72''

    Can someone please upload the full profiles from these drivers in text format using NVIDIA's SLI Profile Tool please as there's some new profiles I don't have that I'd like to add to the v305.67 drivers I'm using. I don't want to install these drivers just for the profiles as they have an older build of OpenGL and pre-date the v305.67 drivers anyway.

    Thanks.

    Makes me wonder if these have the GW2 fixes. Wish there was a stress test today lol.

    *sigh* Games coming out next week and the drivers still aren't out. Here's hoping it comes out next week.

    I'm not playing with modded info's anymore, so these are a no-go for me.

    And the 305.67's are brand new, probably the only difference between them is the WHQL certification, which means NOTHING... :)

    I agree with ya there about WHQL.. Think maybe I'll stick with .67 for now, until those separate branches merge soon perhaps.
