    Yea you're right, i don't know how driver development works. However, NVIDIA had approx. 2 months to build the new driver, the other drivers that they released were either Quadros or to support GTX 500 series card. The new driver should have the fix for low gpu usage, stuttering and frame drops, but is that not something that they should've release before they release their cards. We have been waiting 6 months for proper drivers so you can probably understand how frustrating that is. Its like they are selling cars without tires.

    Yeah thats not funny. Thats UGLY. Even AMD releases their Drivers month by month. NVidia, are you trying to fool your customers? Thats not good customer support. I want support for my GTX 470, get your asses up:biggun::banana:

    I want AA in Hot Pursuit, and Game improves. Hell, The last WHQL was back in September? Or something like that. Get your Job done, and Manuel G, stop talking next week next week blabla. Your a liar:biggun:

    C'mon, ManuelG is an PR employe... He's just there to say that a fix is coming to remove pressure from NVIDIA forum! the driver will be ready next week, or by the end of the month or begining of january... Thats all bull****... They will realease a driver that will contain a certain amount of fix, yes but when it is ready it will not do miracle. Human are coding so it will have bugs and even introduced new one.

    This is sad that some type of card seems to have certain flaws but for most, Nvidia drivers are pretty good.

    Well i heard in German Forums that many 460 owners have Problems with the Quadro Drivers and modded infs. Well, on my System it runs fine, but still no AA support for Hot Pursuit, NVidia should make good drivers for the "older" Cards like GTX4XX and so on. The GTX 5XX owners got drivers, we dont get new drivers! Shame on you NVIDIA:puke2:

    Thats my point of view. And Manuel G: Better say nothing. You talk to much!

    My guess is that they are taking time. Don't know for/on what purpose exactly, since their newer gpu are already out.

    But im willing to trust that they realized how far the performance gone bad since 2xx batch started compared to old glorious 19x days.

    If they can bring up the performance as it meant to be, plus fixing the damn cuda bull**** making it at least working good like 3.1, im ok with waiting.

    Besides their quadro drivers are just awesome, they work good in my single and sli setups with any games i tried, and i really like performance and iq.

    Althought i must admit that 263.06 had an insane iq, its really noticiable if you compare it to quadros.

    Well, im just tired of all the excuses. We didnt have WHQL since how many Months? Well, i cant exactly remember, but its way way way too much time gone by. NVIDIA, im disappointed, really disappointed. I guess you focus on the latest Cards and thats not OK. Im a little pissed off right now, sorry:wanker:

    They are probably busy working on drivers for their coming multi-GPU card. I'm guessing they are, just as ATI is, focusing everything to look good in benchmark reviews and none on QA.

    QA doesn't seem to have much "sell power" today. Price/fps-performance is what sells. Hence why multi-GPU solutions always get recommended by reviewers.

    Zloth runs up to nhlkoho's whaaaambulance, yanks the driver out of the front seat, and sets him down next to his PC with a brush and some water colors.

    W00t! New driver! :banana:

    What do you mean? The 236.09's have been out since Nov. 22nd, are WHQL certified, support both the 570 and 580, and are available from nvidia.com. Don't know how you can get much more official than that.

    Let's see, today is the 20th. In 14 days it will be, uh, the 3rd of Jan, pretty dang close to the middle of the first week of January.
    :biggun: yourself.

    (as if there's any real difference between 2 and 3 weeks anyway in the context of the original post)

    I remember horror story about 8800 series with 320 bit, lots of complained and trick fix use alt+del back and forth if you know what I am talk about ? now we are see lots of problem with 4xx series with lack of properly drivers.

    Nvidia should fires all Engineer teams whoever take full of responsible.
