    P-state switching looks much better with these, actually it looks like its cured and stays at low 2d almost all the time :)

    edit: nope, now its acting weird again and runs in P0 for longer times, then continues in P8 (which is fine, except those longer P0 states)

    hmm.. i hope i won't have to use that inspector workaround all the time and this September release fixes it completely..I also dont want to stick with older driver either:nerd:

    ^
    its .png, i used printscreen and then copy paste in paint :nerd:

    Idle is fine here, heh but browsing is kinda so so, ok its a little better then by 280.28 and much better then by 280.26, but still its not it.


    @ Sergio

    they are the same as 280.28 speed wise, maybe a little snappier here and there.

    Also Aero feels much much smoother with these 280.36, i can't remember about 280.28, i had 280.26 before..

    How does it feel with these in BFBC2? - I'm at work right now :(. Is there any point in installing them. Most of the time is played in BC2

    I personally don't have problems with bc2, but it looks like the problems are with the sli users.

    I hope the BSOD Problem and Driver stopped responding I had with 280.28 is solved here
    by the way I have non of those problem with 280.19 or earlier drivers . and
    that BSOD problem occurred in desktop when I did nothing with pc just some
    download in background

    280.19 worked fine me aswell apart from it being stuck in performance mode while idle on desktop. And 280.26 had "Driver Stopped Responding" issue.

    At the moment i have 280.36 installed and have yet to encounter the issue. Then again, i have only installed it for 2 hours or so ^^. Will report back here with more info later today.

    I only had chance to try the W40K: Space Marine demo with these drivers this morning but they seem to be identical in performance to the 280.28 betas I was using previously.

    I still have not been able to find a decent AA compatibility flag that works with the game yet though a couple I tried increased the memory usage (usually an indication that AA is working) with no noticeable results alas. :(

    P.S. Are these just updated OpenGL developer drivers or are these the improved P-state betas that NVIDIA were promising on their forum a couple of weeks back? It's just that I was expecting a beta driver with OpenGL 4.1 only, seeing as OpenGL 4.2 is still in beta.

    im liking these drivers so far. did a few rounds in brink. the lag fest and flickering i use to get is no more. im not sure if its because of the ogl 4.2 or what.

    da2 is butter smooth. no increase or decrease in fps for that matter

    getting shadow flickering in assassins creed brotherhood during the animus loading screen. gameplay is ok though.
