    Can anyone with STALKER Clear Sky and DX10 confirm if vsync is working or not. The previous 185.xx drivers had vsync broken in DX10.

    Performance with TF2/L4D is down with these drivers, lower frame rates. TF2 my static map test I am down 20FPS from the 270FPS I get normally on my static test map

    UT3 performance is up about 5FPS

    Diablo 2 runs well

    Bioshock runs great

    I have Vista 32 and SLI GTX260's. I have been using 185.xx since 185.20 with no problems. But with 185.81 installed I had two severe crashes while playing Left4Dead. Also, my Vantage benchmark lost about 150 points with 185.81. I re-installed 185.68 and am back to normal. I play COD4, COD5, Requiem, Shaiya, Team Fortress 2, CSS, Bioshock, etc. and they all work well with 185.68. I love the Ambient Occlusion effect, especially in COD4.

    I get the same issues as shadowgod on E:TW. I start up at the logos and it starts flickering with graphical corruption and crap...i hope either CA or nvidia can resolve this.

    i made a treat @ nvidia about broken anisotropic filtering in some games, especially in Fear combat.

    Lets hope they fix this.

    [Sarcasm]Are you sure? It requires a Pentium 233MHz processor and no 3D acceleration whatsoever. I don't know if your system can handle that.[/Sarcasm]

    Very, very nice drivers.:)
    Fixed one serious issue on 8500 GT and Samsung SM 710n monitor, compared to 182.50 WHQL. With 182.50 WHQL It would give me serious error when trying to use resolution higher than 1024, and I had to turn my monitor off from power, take the cable out and restart the PC. :3eyes:

    Besides that, COD5 v1.4 runs catastrophically compared to COD4, when I had 1 core processor and 1 GB RAM less.:bang::bang: Can't get over 15 fps on 1024x768, even without eye candy settings like shadows, lightning, AA, AF... :puke2: And even after i overclock It, results are similar, still very bad.
    Well, this is probably Treyarch's fault, never mind.:biggun:
    And WAR LEADERS: CLASH OF NATIONS v1.3 also runs very bad in battles.:bang: This is only really bad thing about these drivers.
    All in all pretty nice BETA.:banana:

    These drivers have been great for me! I have no issues with 185 series drivers on my SLI 8800gt setup. I have been playing Warhammer Online, Farcry2, some X3 Terran Conflict and COD5. All work great.

    I have had drivers where it can't handle 20+ skeletons on screen and causes it to drop in FPS in the past

    I haven came across any issues so far with these drivers. I have them installed on both of my computers.

    All my games play just fine with them.
