    its the same for me with 2.1, it doesn't matter which driver try 2.0 and a be happy camper:nerd: looks like they broke few things in 2.1 at least texture streaming seems to have a huge issue.

    hm strange, now it worked right of the start, i had this issue with 260.63.

    Windows colours? well digital vibrance works, i didn't try and change the rest..

    These new drivers still have issues playing video.

    These drivers wont let me change the texture filtering - Trilinear optimization to "off" when I have the Quality Texture filtering set to "Hight Quality," in Nvidia Control panel?? Same for the last set. Does anyone know why we cant change it to off when using High Quality?

    I donwloaded the US English version, as the International wasn't working on NVIDIA site and I still prefer to get it from NVIDIA itself so I took the US English ones, and it correctly says Win 7 X64 for me

    And yes custom view was already removed since 260.63

    The Custom Resolution Hz bug on primary screen still exists as I posted on NVIDIA forums :


    And there is now a NvXDSync.exe in processes (might've been also since 260.63 but I disabled the Nvidia service on that one immediately and this removed this exe apparently), also posted a question about this on NVIDIA forums :


    Anyone know why this exe is there ? Or does anyone know actually what the Nvidia Driver helper service exactly does as I'm starting to ask myself if I should still disable it as I always used to do ?

    For the rest I can't yet say anything about driver performance, did no tests yet, but I'm about to start my daily SC2 session so we will soon find out :D

    if its grayed out its disabled, looks like a bug..



    Re5 was fine maybe 0.5fps slower lol :D nothing really, but Dirt2 suffers from the same slowdown at start, its when you see that 3d like vision then it stutters for a second... stupid amateurs broke it with 260.xx series.

    i missed that flash, but it happens right here before you start to race.. 2nd 3d flash (1st shows the level- its fine, 2nd shows the cars -it stutters)

    258.96 or 259.32 or any other driver isn't affected. Like i said in 260.63, they " pimped it for 460gtx" and broke for the rest, nice job.

    So is it really worth going from 260.63 beta to these? The 260.63 are working great on my system, except for the gamma correction problem i CP.

    Well i tested F1 2010 and still same crappy performance as before.Didn´t check gpu usage but since perf remained same i assume it´s still capped at 60%...
    Yes i downloaded the same version.Must be a bug with some .inf i guess.Performance isn´t affected so it´s a minor problem really.

    Benchmarking is cool and all, but I wish Nvidia would focus on actual games performance even more than a benchmark. I mean I know they do improve game performance, but they could step it up a notch even.

    Anyone else that has the process "nvXDsync.exe" running in the background after installing this driver? Any idea what it does? I've never noticed it before.

    lol... its been mentioned many many times before

    its for nv control panel, for profiles, for idle states on 460gtx, and probably fan control on my gpu (its sw controlled) and other driver related stuff, but imo its still buggy as hell.
