    Can someone shout if they test STO with this driver. so far only 190.62 seems to work for the ground stuff.. I'll post my results tomorrow if none else does

    SLI for battlefield WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTT :banana:

    I can fix "vegetation flickering" in crysis by doing this trick. Start the game with no AA, load a level, go in graphic settings & put 2x AA, then roll back to no-AA. Fixed :D

    Oh god :( I'm a GPU overclocker so I'll wait if programs like precision and AB will fix it.

    There is a new precision version 1.90. Is this working?

    What about using nVidia system tools in the meantime to overclock?

    Nope,using precision 1.90 and it's not working.:bang:
    And maybe I should mention that precision doesn't display the shader clock.

    Oh well I'll probably end up installing these drivers even if OCs dont work because there is SLI support for battlefield and that's VERY important!

    Nice that we have some drivers but the incompatibility issues with RivaTuner (used for custom fan settings) and EVGA Precision (used for monitoring temperatures and framerates in games) means that I'll defer from installing them until both those applications have been updated.

    My PC is running 100% fine with the 195.62 drivers anyway and I don't have SLI so there's no urgency for me to upgrade. I'll just keep reading this thread for feedback from others.
