    Seem very nice up to now. It seems with every new nVidia driver released at the moment I get a good IQ but also an increase in speed with each one :)

    My first impressions:

    • The "New" CP still won't start, no that I would use it though. :mad2:
    • The clocks are fine and read out correctly. \o/
    • Haven't tested them in 3D yet.

    I find it strange that a lot of people have problems starting up the new cp. It would be interesting to see if users suffering from this had something in common systemwise that would cause this.
    I've never had this problem myself.

    The new clock settings engine and other GF8 enhancements in the new releases 163.69, 163.71 are not definitely quite suitable and usable with previous gen. cards, I've no problem with 162.18 or prev. drivers running the new CP.

    But never mind, I switch to the good ol' rusty one every time. :)

    Just installed them over 163.69's, they are great, a little better overall (negligible, but noticeable). Keepers for me. Good job nVidia you really are doing a great job so far with the 163.xx series.

    These are the first 163 thats works for me. .67 and .69 bsod nv4 and no sli working ok. I have anyway almost the same numbers than the previous 162,50 quadro, but I will keep them because of the new optimizations for the new games to come, crysis, etc.

    I tried a few games

    Dirt, noticible slower FPS - some studdering
    Call of juares, not really notice any diff

    Few FPS higher in MOHA - litle smoother

    The 71 and 69 drivers both make Madden 08 studder very badly until the BSOD the 44 drivers work great

    Can SLI be enabled in these drivers? (Unlike 163.69)

    Yup i agree, mine starts like in 5sec, that in vista. And never had problems before.


    what dirt has gone to worse, now that is bad news, last time i played it on vista was with 158.22 at it was a huge diff between vista and XP. Haven't try it now dough, but i tohught it would only go to better in Xp not to worse, cuz lol its already at min of being playable in XP.

    Running the .71's last night on bioshock and could not see any difference tween them and the .44's. No problems, just no instant improvements.
