    Yes it's sad, and Nvidia should use Nv update to push out Alan Wake profile at any moment.

    Those with ME1 and UT3 antialiasing issues (and crashing), does this fix those? 2D clock "feature" is still there so no power saving when using above 60Hz...

    2d bug is apparently the same, the only fix is you're forced to use nv inspector (multi display power saver)

    heh it suppose to be "correct" this way since 290.xx, btw they fixed that windows boot logo glitch with 290.xx (it started with 275.xx)



    About UT3, default AA flag looks the same.. They didnt improve anything:p

    It works fine like before, but at certain angles it looks like 0x - 2xaa.
    Also Ambient Occlusion- quality still flickers (turns on/off every few sec) and this time i didnt force any TrAA or AF.
    Biohazard is the worst, its like in this video
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=z6UhDvHG86M#t=21s
    could be because of the level fog.. I guess i'll have to disable it again.

    They work fine, but the 45% Skyrim Performance increase is a lie.

    I loaded an old save near the Riften area where there is a lot of forrest. I use to have around 45 FPS with 4x SuperSample on 295.51 and that remains the same on this Driver.

    Bit of a shame.

    That's compared to the ancient 285.62.

    I used 290.53 ans 295.51 before. And compared to those there isn't any performance increase.

    No AA in Reckoning with this drivers. Roll back to 295.51 and AA is back.

    Oh nVidia, one day they'll get it right.

    Still no frame limiter ...

    I don't know why people are shocked there is no Alan Wake profile, that won't see light of day for 3 or 4 months.

    Skyrim shouldn't have performance problems like on it's release as the latest patch compiles the .exe properly.

    Currently playing it with 4x MSAA and 2x SuperSample. It's the AO part that still sucks.

    Whenever i enable AO in Performance Mode i go from 60 FPS (V-Sync) to 48 FPS on the same scene.

    They should have enabled the casting of Shadows on Grass so we can get rid of AO.

    "In December, the 290.53 beta driver introduced our first performance optimizations, helping improve frame rates by about 19% in Skyrim’s many shadowy dungeons, and 2.8% in its wide-open outdoor environments."

    Nope, improvement outside is only 2.8% and hasn't been improved much further than that with the latest driver.

    Also 45% only applies to the GeForce 560Ti.

    Funny thing is that there wern't really any performance issues inside, yet they tweak it with 19% while the outside performance needs a massive tweak.

    Terrible BF3 drivers! Sort of..it enabled No-clip mode in BF3. I am not kidding, i can see through walls. It would be awesome accept the colors are all messed up.

    I guess nvidia was like "screw all these hacks, lets just give them out for free".
    Fail nvidia.

    The previous betas actually did that for me in BF3 and Skyrim sometimes. Haven't seen it on these... yet.

    I'm downloading now...going to fully reinstall Win7 64bit Pro and test against current Beta's - which is exactly what Nvidia does guys. They don't test these things in real world conditions under every circumstance such as the other applications and trash you have loaded on the PC's you use every day so the results are going to be different for everyone and not everything may work. I suggest if you really want to test you must re-install the OS and start from scratch with very limited amount of anything else if at all going on the system. Far too many times have I seen even the junk toolbar crap or something else loaded that effects another part of the system including video to the video drivers response.

    Terrible advice, I have never,ever, had to do that. Nor should you.
