    These drivers have some multi-GPU system bug,even though my 8600GT was oced to 620Mhz,1566Mhz shader & 750mhz GDDR3 the driver downclocks my 8600GT(PhysX) used in multi GPU setup with 8800GT(Default GPU)to 580Mhz core and 1296Mhz shader with 300Mhz GDDR3.I have checked the clocks with riva tuner,GPUZ 1.9,2.8, and even Everest.

    Or maybe nvidia is cheating so that my 8600GT performs poorly compared to 8800GT in PPU calculations.
    Even my non OCED version of the same card runs at the same speed stated above.

    I think its quite clear that previous drivers have had issues with reporting the real values of clocks, temps, fan speeds so how can you base your finding without doing actual tests? I don't see how this relates to cheating, its just like buying a car and asked if you want the luxury edition or with AC in a sense, you get what you pay for.

    As well you say it defaults, well if your card is an OC model for example, sure the spec defaults will be lower.

    It seems u did not check the previous threads i had created.
    I have done a complete PhysX analysis.

    nope, as you didn't mention it. I went with what I saw in this thread.

    because 180.xx drivers are strictly from 8800 and upwards...and maybe there is a conflict that does it...

    There is no conflict - it is NVIDIA's clever marketing department at work and a major conspiracy :D

    I hope riva tuner which is going to be released today will help me solve the problem.
