    Have you tried to play BF2 with this driver set? :3eyes: Also what is your OS?

    I totally agree with what your saying.

    I can not thank Nvidia enough for the constant updates, many customer Nvidia systems with a slight issue are mostly sorted with a updated driver that come on a regular basis. So i say keep them coming.

    There is no increasing, just the contrary:
    178.15 (12200)[​IMG] и 178.24 (12067)[​IMG]

    In Crysis bench also:
    178.15 (38.11 avg) [​IMG] и 178.24 (37.34 avg) [​IMG]

    In STALKER CS the situation is very bad, 1-3 FPS slide show at max settings :confused: I've reinstalled the driver but no difference!
    Now I'm back with 178.15 and STALKER CS runs with 65-70 FPS.

    Tried Battlefield 2 with this driver and it's a no go for me. I tried this on 3 different graphics cards. This driver was tried with a 7600 GT,9600 GT & 9800 GT. The problem I am getting is the same as I was with v178.13 when I am in the game and try to use high settings like AA super sampling high AF settings the far view is screwed all the heck.:bang: The mountains look like crap and the metal grates that you run across & under look like some kind of old 8 bit color or something? I definitely won't be using this version. I have went back to v175.19 where every game I play works perfectly on this set. I uninstalled using driver cleaner each time and followed it by the book on the directions like always. I am using Windows XP Pro SP3 32-Bit

    Oh yea this was tried on three different motherboards & chipsets. VIA P4M266A, nForce4 & AMD 790FX (NB) AMD SB750 (SB)

    NVIDIA_G92.DEV_0611.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT " WOOT

    Hopefully no more blue screens on Clear sky

    EDIT: So far seems to get no more blue screens, making me EXTREMLY joyful this morning !

    these make the game playable now (where it wasnt yesterday with 177/178 existing drivers)

    EDIT2: Spoke to fast, BSOD as usual

    Could some more people post performance numbers instead of conspiracy theories and whine. Thanks to the posters with relevant info. :)
    Anyone tried them out with AoC?

    I had BSOD and , for the first time ever since installing Vista , "Driver stopped responding" errors on both 178.13 and 178.15 with STALKER CS and BF2 , so far these work fine. Before I had to roll back to 177.83 to get through STALKER.

    Its weird how so many people get such different reactions with these newer drivers. :3eyes:


    GO RAYS!!

    I believe the EVGA Precision Tool is written by underwinder himself actually.

    I ran this set with BF2 and checked those settings and it looked great to me..using a 8600GT on XP and a 9800GTX on Vista32 bit... sounds like you have a OS issue or something else causing problems.

    Works for me

    The DV works for me and I don't see any real improvements over the .15 . I also don't see any decrease in performance.

    os = xp x64

    yeah no problem... I really hate that they bundle the damn drivers with that PhysX software..They should include a check if you want to install it or not during the driver install much like Catalyst do for the control center.
