    problems with the new control panel,nogame profiles that are creatable or loadable...huge gain with control panel maxed out settings in Fear including SLI16xs......the test avg. was 97 with a low reading of 50 this is20 fps over the 87.25 which in turn was 20 fps over the 84.56.That driver had a 49 fps avg. Seems to overclock better so far and a problem that occurred with all drivers before the 87.25 where the 1st time I entered a 3d game after initial cold boot my screen would freeze;corrected upon restarting for some reason, but annoying none the less...I tried the 91's on a 6800 ultra and seemed slower than the 84.56...will test in fear in game at these settings for slowdowns

    i dunno just played hitman blood money and there is a real difference compared to the 84.56 driver set, with 16x on with the 84.56 set it doesnt stutter with these it does...odd. i think those are much better, so i shall switcho!!!!!

    Nice performing driver. New control panel isn't too brilliant and still a bit buggy (had a problem where one of the test images isn't visible), it just isn't as well designed as the tree structured menus of the classic one because it's more difficult to find stuff and I don't get why changing it to a website like interface makes it better.

    Just installed images and games do seem to look crisp and sharper. Don't care to much for the new control panel other then the ability to log temps so i'm sticking to the classic. Gonna do benchies in a sec
    Edit: 3DMark03 7568
    3DMark05 3986

    A little bit better scores@stock speeds. Might reoverclock later...

    ok, I just played fear on SLI16xs and there were no noticable slowdowns at all. I did that outside level on "Heavy Resistence" where I had a save. This area has slowed down in the past more than other areas but I was in total control. Again, this is SLI maxed AA settings. I'll try it with my single card 7800 later. I fell back to 84.56 with those from 87.25. Will also do Mark 6 test

    All of my games run flawlessly and Benchmarks stay around the same. Good drivers.

    I like the new control panel, but it still needs alot of work. Here are some of the problems I found with it...

    1. Settings sometimes revert back to defaulkt for no reason.

    2. Can't see 2nd gpu temp

    3. Can't see 2d performance in the overclcoking panel.

    4.There is some kind of conflict with the image previewer and manage 3d settings, as settings sstart reverting to default just cause you had a look to check the setting.

    Here are somet things I would like to know about the new panel

    1. In a creenshot I saw more than 3 things on the main page , how do you get them, all I see is display, video and 3d.

    Also I overclocked my cpu and the PCrefused to boot. I Oc my cpu with a fbs that I always have used without a problem.

    On the plus side, I have noticed that Oblivion has never looked or feeled better. I also wish that the Tomb raider problem has been fixed. Does anyone if it has?

    Anyway I am very happy with this driver , but it's gonna take me a while to completley figure ita all oy,as I think it is quite a big change, although a change for the better.

    SLI profiles seem a bit messed up.. SLI performance for all is set to Single GPU rendering... despite the fact that i got SLI.... hmm..... dont feel like changing them one-by-one

    Not seeing the new control panel anywhere :( Other than that, its pretty solid so far. Haven't had time to do any benchmarks or anything as of yet

    cool that they give us both and necessary but it looks to be better than ATI's as far as potential goes

    Single GPU rendering is default. It doesn't mean that only one gpu is used in SLI. It has to do with how the cards handle info to render. Quick goole can explain it much better than that

    Did note a 1FPS increase in Tomb Raider Legend @ 1600x1200, Max Settings and Next Gen Enabled. Went from 24FPS using 84.43 to 25FPS using these new ones. Test was done at a certain point each time where my lowest score is generally taken

    Oh yeah and DO NOT like the New Control Panel at all. Classic Please! :D

    Yes, i have the same idea about Quake 4! Great image quality! And it seems Nvidia finally fixed the DVD hardware acceleration, no more stutter with PowerDVD. Divx and mpeg videos look good too.
