im not using alchemy or rapture3d. I appreciate the suggestion though.
These work great once i got my clocks back.
Because not all need overclock to take a good performance.
Because if the game run better for me then the last drivers. Then It runs better even if i cant oc. I dont put OC and drivers together. I can wait for a update to ocing tools. I not gonna go back to a worst driver because I cant oc my card.
These drivers are working great for me better then the last.
yea mw2 and Waw dont need to use Alchemy anyway..i Can't tell i didnt try them in win7, but they're ok in win XP for Fear combat and UT3.
Because not everyone uses software to OC, or do not OC at all, or driver works better for them now despite the lack of OC
For me, I never used OC software (never trusted them much) I set the OC on the BIOS and have been using the same ever since. I voted "About the same as previous drivers" because I did not get much of an improvement
Yup same here for WaW: these give some stutters.
i was rather supprised. first driver in a long while that did this ...
EVGA released Precision 1.91
"Added workaround for overclocking bug of ForceWare 196.21. Please take a note that the workaround is applied only to 196.00 - 196.21 driver versions range in order to ensure compatibility with future fixed NVIDIA drivers"
Mass Effect 2 is working is SLI, however nvidia screwed up what exe file is for it. So you need to change it manualy in NvApps.xml
though i use that method too, desktop and laptop with mobile nividia, i understand why some people shouldn't do it. its not a risk free process like software (rt or af). and some people don't have a floppy drive or have never used one.
How are you running Mass Effect 2?! The game hasn't even come out yet!
I'll test these drivers once i get back to my Win7 computer and see if there's any bugs for the 8600GT.
oh its out, but not in the way your thinking. harrrr matey ...
Damn, those buccaneers are quick.
a ye... i only "got" it to check game after 2-3 months of not playing any and see if drivers are working, stoped playing after half an hour.
I work from a home office doing tech support and the company had not approved 7 / 64 bit until this week.. so that said I did a clean install of home premium and updated all the drivers. other than the issue with EVGA precisions clock it seems to be a good driver.. dare i say.. and O ya..
HOLY CRAP did MS actually make a good OS? I must say 7 is a sweet pleasure to use so far.
( srry threw that in there) and i don't OC this card so the fan controls work im cool. and glad to be here and meet you all.. very knowledgable group
7 IS pretty sweet, been using it since RC and still going strong.(cool tip if you have multiple monitors, hit Winkey+P to change monitor configuration)
QUAD SLI not detected with these..
Reinstall the drivers.Everybody else with quad works.
Well either way, i switched back to the previous drivers. they work hella great for me so im happy..
As for Overclocking with the new drivers, i think ill wait until all OC progs support the new drivers before i make a full switch.
