    ok, word !

    LOL, was gonna install 169.21, but found the .25 beta driver instead.

    I'll try to break 12,000 3DMark06 in Vista with 8800GTS :banana:

    Still giving me Anti-Aliasing via CP issues (Vista 64-bit). Back to the 169.17s for me.

    LMAO! Wow another driver. Nvidia just can't get it right can they? They are taking one baby step a a time. Fix one thing screw up another thing.

    Nice driver. No BSOD, good IQ. Crysis runs slightly smoother than 169.17

    Thanks for continuing to post these benchies. There's a lot of people who go, "The new driver is smoother.", or "The IQ is a lot better". But what you have shown is that most of these minor driver upgrades are either:

    a) targeted at supporting new hardware, or
    b) attempts at fixing specific bugs.

    Rarely do these minor betas do anything significant for overall performance across a wide range of hardware. Hence your results.

    in every driver after 169.13 most of my SLI profiles have "single GPU" rather than "multi gpu" or "custom". So im sticking with the .13's until nvidia hears the pop of theyre collective heads coming out of theyre collective butts.

    I would suggest 7 series SLI users and definitly GX2 owners check theyre profiles.

    why have nvidia removed the custom sli profiles for crysis in this last 2 releases of drivers. I just dont see the point of it whatsoever. If i go back to 169.13 i get custom back on the sli profile.
    Why are people with sli going to test these drivers when its only using 1 card.
    Its not like we can manually select the new afr3 mode for crysis because it isnt there.
    really getting on my tits this. :bang:
