    No significant change. But the Nvidia flat-panel scaling, HDTV resizing, and digital vibrance all work.

    :p

    that means nothing in the world of drivers.

    try games.


    but these fixed some frequent issues with the 8600 cards.

    Back to the 158.45 for me, since all of the 16x.xx series either crash or cause the stopped responding and recovered error.

    Even at stock speeds the 16x.xx series give me problems, whereas the 158.45 allow me a descent overclock.

    Display Driver nvlddmkm stopped responding, has successfully recovered - not about cooling ... its all driver issue, thousands of gamers around the world have to search the way to get rid of it, everyone come to conclusion that its driver and Vista problems, it dissapears when u turn off AERO or disable SLI if you have ... well, lots have been sad about, but Nvidia doesn't care I guess ...
    Anyway, what about the performance in games? any improvement in comparison whith 162.22 beta ???

    Some performance comparisons between this and 163.11 in games would be good. Better yet would be info on whether or not the image quality is better (163.11 was a step up from previous drivers).

    I'm wondering if I should install this over 163.11. What do you guys reckon?
    Also, I've had 1 display driver recovery and then I changed driver and it fixed it. Though I don't have SLI so maybe thats why :p

    Yeah are these any better over 163.11?

    Also is there an International download link?

    Doesn't matter unless you fancy reading a language other than English.
