    I have set 8xCSAA in nchancer (without "extend ingame settings" because I could not force any AA type in HL2:EP2 with this compatibility option enabled) and I have AA in Unreal Tournament 3 now. I checked it with Bioshock too and yes, I have 8xCSAA for Unreal engine in DX10 mode.

    But the texture streaming was very slow after the loading. I could see low-res textures and 1FPS for some minute until my game loaded the textures.
    This driver is very buggy for me.

    (Sorry if it was possible with older drivers but I do not tryed it after Bioshock released and I read (and checked) that AA do not working with unreal3 engine under DX10)

    Lol @ the guy who did the Crysis Benchmark from the 171.16 to these.

    The 171's were specifically made for Crysis the last time I remember, so of course you'll see an improvement.

    Modded inf files are actually completely unnecessary. Just extract the files to a directory, then go into device manager and choose to update your display adapter drivers, point to the directory where you extracted the files, select the inf file and disregard the hardware incompatibility warning.

    Unless i'm mistaken most of the 169 series was made for Crysis, infact thats what all new drivers seem to be aimed at.

    If you had read the post you would have noticed that I said it was performing better and seemed less buggy than this driver in "all" applications/benchmarks aswell as having good IQ, it just happens that Crysis is currently the most demanding piece of software and people seem to be interested in what effect drivers have on it.

    You probably have a 64 bit operating system and can't use the 171.16 drivers so just wanted to have a moan rather than appreciating the fact that some one took the time to share the information.

    Continuing my benchmarking work using Crysis as a basis for comparison with drivers:

    Chart High settings:

    Chart Medium settings:

    I've only included the XP x86 numbers. I have numbers for Vista x64 but performance wise it is noticeably less than XP (not surprising).

    I'm keeping track of your benchmark results, mate. I just installed a Q6600 to replace my old overclocked venice and it makes me a bit depressed that Crysis results are the same as a standard E6600 or even a E2160 overclocked PC.

    Crytek also pisses me off since 64 bits mode Crysis makes no sense, looking at the results :(

    Finally, I'm definately not moving to Vista till it can reproduce a Crysis performance up to par with XP :(

    First of all, hi there, new to this forum.

    I am still running on the vista x64 168.25 whql driver.. just wanted to share my bench with that driver (168.25) on crysis, and if i could expect any gain by using the one provided by Evega?

    Link to ScreenShot of GPU bench :

    http://peecee.dk/upload/view/94442/full

    The link is hosted in denmark, but it should be a fast host, so if it takes a while, please be paitient..

    My main concern is if the Evega driver has any changes?? so far from what i could read in this thread the driver really only was intended for 8800GS.....

    PS.
    Please excuse my english spelling, i speak it fluied, but my spelling is jacked, nomatter what language i try to write in. :stewpid:

    EDIT. Wooops... if you couldn't allready tell by the screenshot, i'm running vista, vista x64 home premium.

    EDIT 2. Gosh.. gotta learn to remimber to put in all the info at first..

    The bench in crysis witch i included a link to a ss of, was run at 1680x1050 with all settings to high.

    Grr thats the main game I play. nVidia shouldn't sit on their hands for that game because it can still be improved for better performance.
