    Is Ambient Occlusion added?

    New drivers+ new physix + Fallout 3 fix + AO= :banana:

    Well, let's hope they would be better than 181.20 and 185's..

    They seem to be the same as the 181.20's except for some fixes mentioned in the release notes. No fancy new options or codes that can be deciphered into the meaning of life, unfortunately.

    Yes, they do come with PhysX 9.09.0010.

    Installation went smooth and all games seem to be running fine (just tested Mirror's Edge, C&C 3, TR Underworld, Crysis Warhead, Far Cry 2 and Fallout 3).

    I didn't run any benchmarks or any fps comparisons, but Fallout 3 seems to be a bit smoother with this driver and doesn't crash.

    I'm using Vista 64, SP1.

    Thanks for the heads-up, cricket bones! :thumbup:

    Hello,
    constant crashing issues in Fallout 3 really fixed? It was not problem only for SLI, as is mentioned in RN above..

    Do these drivers fix the flickering bug of DX10 shadows in LotrO or D&D Online?
    I play D&D Online, and only Sideband's drivers fix these issues. But also make some really uncomfortable stuttering in WoW.

    What Cryostasis bug again ?

    i play this game with 8800GTS 640 mb and 181.20, i finish the game, low fps but it the game, not the driver.
    And i patched the game with v1.01 patch.( google it).

    This driver does install better then 181.20.. but still games dont run smooth at all..
    Cod5 ran very nicely on my gtx280.. but with my gtx295 its no fun at all..

    NVIDIA geez... how can you bring out a kick ass gpu with sux drivers like this.....:/

    they are allot better than 181.20 with the latest physx, before i had some freezes even though i patched it to 1.01 - mirror's edge :D (with ppu gpu enabled), now with these no more, but i got a phsyx dll. crash at one point.. but still allot better than before.


    and for those who didnt see it yet, when you don't play phsyx based games disable ppu support in driver, it will help in smoothness!

    GRAW2 would crash 2-3mins into the opening level with both XP x64 v181.20 + PhysX v8.10.13 and v181.22 + PhysX v9.09.0010 if I tried playing with "PhysX High" or "PhysX Extreme" enabled. I had to disable the additional PhysX effects to complete the level (by setting in-game physics to "Normal").

    Level 2 seems completely fine on the "PhysX Extreme" setting though, I've yet to receive a crash on that level.
