    What is the gold standard in cleaner/sweeper currently? The guru3d sweeper predates the 200 series drivers by quite a bit now...

    Redemption80 still have stutters in movies with ReClock.

    I thought Yes i got no stutters anymore, but then i see that i was running on a single
    card, and not SLI, so i enables SLI and now i got stutters.


    This are the settings i use with ReClock:


    Audio settings - DirectSound SPDIF interface and WaveOut
    also SPDIF interface, and enabled Accept bitstream format and have disabled
    Disable media speed correction with bitstream audio

    And in Video settings - Assume frame rate when not found 23.976,
    and the rest i have not touch.

    So what am i doing wrong?

    I had a second related error: foobar2000 crashed with the following:
    I doubt it will help anyone... I have a full report on that crash if anyone asks.

    Driver Sweeper on Guru3D is not updated (I guess due to the OpenCandy spyware?) so I did not notice it had been updated in a long time. I'll do a sweep and reinstall to see if these issues resolve.

    AmigaWolf, wish i could help with the SLI thing, but can't test that myself at the moment, but will in a few days time.

    Can't you just disable one card before you watch a movie, i know its not ideal, but it not a huge amount of time to do.

    wrong sizes.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    New Vegas runs much better, minimal stutter now maxed. Still need the DX9 fix though. It runs better than it did by far without it, you won't notice it in the wasteland. Step into somewhere like Freeside however, and it's a stutter fest.

    These are the best driver yet for the GTX460 series imo BFBC2 runs smooth and SLi performance is up in most other games + no random blue screens as with the previous drivers.

    nice. New Vegas gpu utilization went from crappy 15%-35% (260.89) to 65% (260.99) in sli.

    :banana:
    it is not WDDM display-link friendly, if you have usb monitors the NVCP will not
    work.

    NVIDIA has not written a good code for win7 64 bit WDDM certified, or display-link certified.

    the last certified drivers for WDDM displaylink certified where the 258.96 whql'ed.

    Also still same issue with the no control over the Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization; you can not control the colors for the windows them. aero still not functioning.

    NVIDIA what the hell are you doing for win 7 64 bit? nothing? :bang:

    i downloaded the drivers only yesterday and today i did a few tests, got a boost in FC2 and Just Cause 2 compared to 258.96 and 260.89 (for me the 258.96 were actually faster than the previous whql) but the 260.99 are faster than both.

    FC2 w 260.99 1680x1050 DX10 ultra everything + 8xAA + 16xAF

    * Average Framerate: 101.33
    * Max. Framerate: 207.18
    * Min. Framerate: 64.99

    258.96

    * Average Framerate: 93.65
    * Max. Framerate: 202.18
    * Min. Framerate: 59.41

    JustCause2 desert test, 1680x1050, 32xAA and max setting incl cuda and bokeh, it was 78fps now 82fps.

    other games = same fps as 258.

    so far everything seem fine including playing videos.

    nice drivers.

    I'm using this driver on Win7 x64, no problems at all. I didn't run any benches though, but it feels the same as 260.63.
