    No kepler support. Odd for drivers coming out soon before a new card release.

    Looks like Kepler will be using 300+ branch

    Exactly...

    I highly doubt there is a "45%" boost in skyrim over last whql...

    Can someone do some benches comparing last whql 295.73? im using the quadro 295.73s and i dont want to update for nothing and lose the awesome quadro IQ.

    yeah that boost is compared to 285.xx and even then its mostly inside which doesn't matter much..

    Asus P8P67 here, never had issues with TDR with any driver. These working well also. I updated my bios finally to the recently released one without any issues as well.

    Now this made me ROFL!!! Those were the only 2 Physx titles released in 2011.
    Wish there were more titles using it.

    Anyway, always good to see new drivers. :nerd:

    Does Mass Effect 1 and UT3 antialiasing bug still exist with these? What about the 2D clock issues with monitors >60Hz?

    296.10 is older than 296.17 both in timestamp as branch ID.
    Mixed them together and installed, works fine.

    There has never been an SLI profile, you made it manually.

    It is not Nvidia's fault that we have no SLI support, but the game's fault and they're working on a patch to provide us with SLI support.

    This drivers are definitely keepers for me, they seem to run smooth as butter in all games I've tried (Battlefield 3, GTA IV, Red Orchestra 2, Batman AC, The Witcher 2, SWTOR, Fifa 12, MW3).

    i just played a few rounds of BF3 and these are much better on my GTX260 SLi machine, much more consistent frame rates not nearly as much fluctuation! havent tried these on my signature machine yet though.

    @kcuestag

    I meant regular profile for tweaking AF, AA, TrAA, etc., i dont have SLI. :)

    Yeah guess i must have made one.., because now if i add AlanWake.exe in nvcpl it makes a path name c:\games\example\,... instead of profile name.

    Its not listed in notes, but its been confirmed in asus forums. It fixed mine on both my asus boards. I used to get them all the time, like every few minutes sometimes but no more.

    It was some power draw issue.

    The 2D clock bug only occurs at 120Hz. Any other refresh rate above 60Hz still allows the cards to go into their lowest power state.
