    yea they're good for me too, in heaven 2.0 i got the same highest fps (37|65.4|155.8) as with 197.59 without direct compute, so i guess they got that boost back, L4D2 ran great too, overall pretty good so far.

    For Operation Arrowhead, these drivers are nice textureswise, but they chug trying to load the textures. So back to the previous drivers for me.

    for me these drivers gave me a great boost in performance too, so the performance also is for the previous series

    Do these boosts in performance go hand in hand with lower IQ? I am using the 257.15s at the moment. Happy with them and I don't want to downgrade quality for a couple of frames.

    But if the IQ stays relatively the same with boosts, then great!

    Performance gains are excellent. The IQ is just as good as the previous drivers. Keepers for me.

    the IQ is the same as the previous drivers, just cause 2 is now smooth, with previous drivers stutters like hell, same with nfs shift and STALKER SOC 2009 complete mod

    BF BC2 seems choppier than with the last betas though. Will BF BC2 ever run good with Nvidia cards?

    Poor image quality on BC2 with this drivers, back to 258.49 quadro drivers... You can notice huge IQ diference between these 2.

    Can't say nothing about other games.

    Do you set your image quality to 'high' in the control panel?

    Strange, never had a problem with bc2 with any nvidia driver I've used since the game come out, always silky smooth for me.

    yea, its DX11 cards that are having problems. If I run in DX10 its fine (like your GTX 280). In DX11 its choppy. Using GTX 480 here.
