Yes but what are the 163.76 XP 32 ones that are on the download section of this site?
I thought .76 were for vista and .75 for XP...
Anyways, i'll be installing .75 tomorrow. HL2:EP2 is all preloaded and ready to go
No both say for XP 32bit. However the 163.76 is International the 163.75 is English only so who knows. I'll have a good look after I've eaten.
No call of duty 4 profile Demo is comming out thursday
these are more stable than the 163.71 ! ( i got bsods ) not anymore
Drivers work perfect for me. CP actually loads a tad quicker too for w/e reason. Almost instant for me...
i feel the same way, vista 32bit.
Damn Nvidia! I dont install 163.71 yet I'm still on 163.44 need to free time!
3DMARK 2006 with my system @ stock speeds (2.4 Ghz)
163.71 = 12360 pts
163.76 = 12373 pts
I was playing some of my games (Doom 3, Quake Wars, F.E.A.R, Strangehold) and had no problems at all, IQ seems to be the same as 163.71, I noticed some fps boost only @ Quake Wars.
Nvidia only list these as "BETA's". http://forums.slizone.com/index.php?showtopic=8961
163.75 date stamped 4th October 163.76 datestamped 5th October. I could look for the changes but suddenly life seems to be too short for that sort of anorak approach.
I'll try them both and see which I prefer in games
Very Nice driver for me so far. Crysis feels little less jerky, Im pretty happy with beta3 performance overall now compared to beta2. But with this driver it feels even little better. Absolutely a keeper!
I've had minimal time to try these out, around 4 hours. Gaming wise I found it difficult to choose between them.
However I had certain issues with version 163.76 which I didn't have with 163.75.
With 163.76 system boot up time took longer and the nVidia CP took forever to open up, always a sore point with me.
So for now I'll stick with 163.75
to bad, have a lan in 1.5 days coming and a fresh install of 1.3 days old.
have to wait until after the weekend to test, dont want to ruin this install
damnit, I just installed 163.71s...
I'll have to try these out when I get home from work. =/
Just downloaded 163.75 beta from the nvidia site.
Slight boost in graphics in TF2 Beta. (5-8 FPS, btw using XP32)
I think I'll keep these ones since 163.76 is basically the same?
Are you able to overclock with ATITool with these drivers?
This is an operating system limitation.
Vista window manager features will provide new ways of accomplishing overlays, but will require application porting.
