I used 178.24 for several hours on Warhammer today - no problems.
Same here seem the DV is problem again.. Use rivatuner instead to chg the DV..
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) и 178.24 (12067)
In Crysis bench also:
178.15 (38.11 avg) и 178.24 (37.34 avg)
In STALKER CS the situation is very bad, 1-3 FPS slide show at max settings 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?
anyone can overclock ? Riva tuner not work with this driver .
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:
nicklesss, where can I download MemSet 3.5 Does it work in Vista 64bit? Thank you in advance.
Found it :banana:
with evga precision tool no problem overclocking
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.
All OK now:
178.24 XP 32Bits English
178.24 XP 32Bits Internacional
178.24 XP 64Bits English
178.24 XP 64Bits Internacional
178.24 VISTA 32Bits English
178.24 VISTA 32Bits Internacional
178.24 VISTA 64Bits English
178.24 VISTA 64Bits Internacional
thanks budy very helpfull
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.
this driver include the PhysX_8.09.04 driver ? and btw im using it (PhysX_8.09.04) and when a double click the icon it wont show the popup window with options... help
On XP sp3 ,DV has still broken as usual ! (0-33-66% and no effect at all)
ps. I need DV to correct my work.
