    Wow, it's not often that I see such enthusiasm about video drivers. ;) It looks like NV has at least one happy customer.

    (I'm teasing of course, it's just that most feedback I read is of people complaining)

    These have worked out good so far...no driver kernel crashes like the previous ones and good frame rates.

    The Previous 280's had good performance for me aswell but they came with different issues. Got this 280.36 installed since it was posted here and havn't had any issues at all.

    280.19 - Issue when exiting game the card got stuck in Performance Mode.
    280.26 - Driver Stopped Responding couple of times a day.

    You guys seem to really have a problem with a a little bump in usage when using a browser? So what? I didn't notice anything in Nightly/Canary/IE9. And my 9600GT is performing great, as always :D

    your gpu runs at full3d clock by default and no driver will heat your gpu like that, i know because my old 250gts was the same only P0-state full3d clock:nerd:

    You didn't understand me. I'm aware that my GPU is always running in P0. I'm saying that there aren't any spikes in usage when I use those browsers. GPU usage and GPU power state/clocks are 2(3) very different things. Oh never mind ^_^

    gpu "spikes" when it does some stuff, gpu monitoring detects that and brings gpu in higher P-state, correct?

    But gpu usage is not the main focus here.. Its these fast P-state switches and sometimes it makes gpu run in P-0 state full3d clock for longer times and heats up gpu for no reason (this new monitoring isn't very smart yet and it doesn't know so good where the threshold is), your gpu isn't affected when it detects higher gpu activity, so nothing changes

    Anyhow new driver with fixed P-state is on its way..:infinity:

    I can say that with Chrome and these 280.36 dev theres no gpu spike usage, im trying it right now in this page scrolling like a mad guy up and down.
    The only thing that i see here is an increase of vram load, from 1% to 18% when scrolling.
    Im using MSI AB (latest 2.2.0 beta 6) with G15 lcd monitor, and so far the gpu is stuck at 51mhz, it doesnt switch to 3d clocks anymore.
    Awesome.

    Yeah here too, its a nicest set till now for me. Browser works fine and in game too. I had some issues with my previous rig and this one pretty much the same, which was for sure driver related. And now all works great well maybe we got something awesome set of drivers right now released.

    Humm...i just stay with the 275.50 ones they are supernice for BFBC2. The versions up just give me bad performance... strange thingy! :wanker:

    280.36 still crashing/freezing sometimes in games but when i set the power management in nvcp to "prefer maximum performance" this solves the issues for me..

    So what's the 2D thing for? I mean, is my card running at 3D clocks when i'm only using the browser?

    2D freq. or P12-state is here for lower power consumption/heat.


    And no adaptive app needs maximum full3d freq. or P0-state just for browsing, low3d freq. or P8-state is more than enough. Well like i said except those gpu's that don't have these P-states.


    In games it runs in full3d clock which is how it suppose to be :nerd:

    Thanks for replying. So all these complains with 280.26 and high temperatures are related to this.

    Which means it's also using more power consumption, right?

    yea + making extra noise.

    I wouldn't have noticed it, but i kept hearing my gpu fan just while browsing, then i thought something isn't right and i saw these weird P-state voltage/freq. switches and longer P0 states..

    im at 275.27 atm and it looks like so, but mostly its in low2d P12 state..

    vs 280.xx,
    [​IMG] [​IMG]



    in both cases doing the same stuff, browsing this forum, replying, scrolling normally (not fast or holding it by the slider)


    although these 280.36 are much much better..but still its not it, hopefully its under control in this September driver.

    Scratch my previous post about deus ex HR not working well with this driver. A lot of people have crashes and freezes with Nvidia and Ati cards. Some sort of DX11 bug or something in that range.:bang:
