    Hehe yea I dont know how they do it tbh. Scripts, dumb luck or just checking often I guess. I appreciate Nvidia being in the community myself, other than having a twitter or facebook I conside Guru3d 'the' community when it comes to Nvidia ddrivers.

    He creates and tracks the official driver threads I mention above, so post your feedback about the feature and he'll see it and add it to the feedback summary for the driver team.

    They'd better be considering they're exactly the same as the 500 series in terms of architecture.

    Nice! Been using the 300.83 drivers since launch and decided to wait until we had a win7 driver that fixes the vsync issue. Going to try these as soon as I get home from work! Thank you Nvidia!

    Typical, I turn my eye away from the forum for a few hours and come back to find a new driver is out (and new version of PhysX too by the looks of things... or is that a typo?)!

    Obviously, I'm delighted as the v302.80 drivers have been great so far in terms of NOT having v-sync stuttering. However, I hope these R304 drivers contain the Bully Scholarship Edition black torso/arms fix that was in the v301.34/v301.42 drivers but not the v302.71/v302.80 ones. For most, it's not a big deal as it's a creaky old game but I've been playing and enjoying it again so it'd be annoying to have the game broken again after being fixed! Fingers crossed!

    "NVIDIA Control Panel Game Enhancements

    With the release of the GeForce 304.48 beta drivers we are enabling NVIDIA Control Panel Ambient Occlusion support in Star Wars: The Old Republic, and Multisample Anti-Aliasing support in Diablo III, L.A. Noire, Rayman Origins, and The Secret World."


    Well forced MSAA was already working for me extremely well in Diablo III since the v301.42 drivers (the blue glow around entrances doesn't work however but that's a minor issue) and it also works superbly with those drivers and the v302.80 ones in L.A. Noire as long as I use a 16:9 resolution and DX9 rendering. So I'm curious as to why they're mentioned in this release - are they improved or in the case of L.A. Noire, does forced MSAA now work under DX11?

    Amusing to see Rayman Origins getting MSAA support when it's a pseudo-2D game that looks jaggy-free from what I've seen of played of it at 1920x1200. I'll obviously have to try it anyway but I can't imagine seeing much difference personally.

    @ Shadowdane - The v-sync stutter was gone in all but Unreal Engine 3 games when I installed the v302.80 drivers last week. Likely that UE3 issue is engine not driver related; I see stuttering when rotating the camera around in Bulletstorm, Mass Effect 3, Spec Ops: The Line demo, etc.

    These new drivers will have the same fix so they should be just the same (it would be nice if the UE3 stutter was fixed too but I won't be holding my breath).
