    I get this senseless up-down clocking like with the 190.38 and my card is getting hotter even when idling. 55° with 186.xx and 60° with these. While gaming temperatures rise more also. Vantage has about the same score as before.

    these work better on my system, my 260 downclocks properly, aero now runs in 2d mode, which is a change, folding wise my ppd has gone up 200 points :D

    Overall these drivers performed the same as the 190.40's

    I did get 500 marks higher and broke 17K marks with 3DMarks06

    Anti-aliasing performance is still amazing with these drivers, L4D with 16xAA and no framerate drops

    UT3 performs perfectly, 60FPS locked compaired to older drivers

    Bionic Commando framerates are slightly higher, by about 4FPS with these drivers

    TF2 framerates are still top end, playing a 32 player match I was 60FPS locked the whole time with 16xAA on

    These drivers don't include Stereoscopic 3D (Good) or PhysX, so I had to install PhysX manually

    Overall, better then the 190.40's, but not by like, amazing leaps and bounds

    I installed these 190 instead of my old 185 series.
    On windows 7 performance test jump from 6.4 to 7.0 and 3dmark 06 jump from 16377 to 16411.

    Keepers for benches, have to test ingame now. :nerd:

    some comparison to the 190.40`s
    all tests were made with a resolution of 1920/1200, 16af & 8aa

    -fc2- avg. went up by 3fps (that is about 10% in my case) with the min. fps up by 1 fps and the max fps up by almost 5fps
    -sf4- showing no improvement at all, avg. went up by less than 1 fps
    -re5- there must have been a failure in my testing. cause this one was showing a very high improvement of almost 11fps?! what the heck?? i`m pretty sure i´ve made a mistake there or else this would mean an improvement of about 31%
    so anyway these drivers seem to work stable and are keepers for me....
    till the next beta release :)

    The 190 series drivers in general are garbage - For many 182.50 is the most stable and smooth across most games. This new 190 set of drivers doesn't have much - I don't get why some people see improvements, it's not the drivers - this new one adds OpenGL 3.2 support, it's a dev driver, and to be honest it is a waste of time, what game have you played that requirse OpenGL3, esactly - as to performance the 190 series have stuttering and not as smooth as 182 - it's best to have a slightly lower FPS but smooth and constant than higher rate and issues.

    these new ones are utter trash - It seems anything past the 186.18 is garbage.

    Back to 182.50 because anyway there is a new beta coming out shortly and I am sick and tired of seeing NVIDIA go downhill like this for the last bucketfull of beta drivers.
    In the past we would see consistent improvements, not anymore. if they can't produce a DECENT driver that takes full advantage of your GPU, that you PAID for, and works well across all games, then they truely suck major arse........!
    and people who rely on those bloody benchmarks should look at real world applications - benchmarks can be misleading - bench your games instead you will get a cleaner picture.

    Dev drivers are usually both high quality, and stable.
    If you haven't actually tried this specific kit yet, its best if you don't post.
    Alternatively, if you did try this set, and didn't follow nvidia's driver update directions, then the problems could be for a whole world of reasons.

    Are these for mobile GPU's as well?

    If so has anyone tested with 9800M GT or 9800M GTX?

    Dude. No driver will fix your problem, It wont be your driver that is the problem. If it was a driver related problem, more people would have the same problem! Its only you mate!
    Have you tryed looking at what your motherboard is doing to your fan speed? Or have you tryed giving your GPU to someone else to try? Have you tryed another GPU?
    No point having a go at the driver developers, for not fixing it.

    Is this the nVidia driver install hints you where referring too? Cause if it is its not very insightful.

    http://www.nvidia.com/object/driver_installation_hints.html

    I have heard people tell me to just install over the old ones, others here say to uninstall, driver clean in safe mode and then install the new drivers, and to tell you the truth I haven't seen any difference doing it ether way?!

    You would think there would be a link on nVidias site telling exactly how to do it one way or the other? or have I just missed it?

    when the heck did they change that >.<

    The site used to tell you to uninstall the current drivers prior to installing new drivers.

    Anyway, my recommendation.
    Overinstalling is fine within the same series of drivers, but a major version jump (181-185 are minor jumps) where new functions and features are added is nearly always best off having the previous drivers removed first.

    I agree,


    Trying to point out, way to many post here lately, that point a finger at the poor soul who has problems when its not always clear even from nVidias view point that there is a correct way to install them.
