    Well my CPU sucks and it is bottlenecking my 680 in BF3. Especially with more than 32 players. I cannot sustain 60fps on a 64 server with everything on low. I get dips in the high 40. I get exactly the same performance at 1080p ultra with 4x MSAA.

    holy craps, i installed the drivers and tested a few games, they weren't kidding, just gained 5 to 10fps in most games including Batman AC maxed out and Physx High (5 fps increase), far less hitching too.

    confirmed, vsync stutters completely gone, it was extremely evident in Turok and Saints Row 3.

    also tested DPC (20-30ms, no spikes) and monitored temps and clock, all good.

    superb drivers, roll on to the next release :D

    I believe that at this amount of load, most, if not any CPU will be struggling.

    Just in case you didn't know, Blizzard has actually acknowledged there is a problem with the streaming/prefetching/buffering (whatever other names you can give it) which causes stuttering for many people in many different ways. When I ran it from my good HDD it even stuttered when it had to just load a name of an area with no mobs or nothing in it. Blizzard has confirmed this problem and will fix it in a future patch. Post was done by a blue on US forum and no I don't have the link but I saw it myself.

    That thing about windows background services is plain BS, the game HAS a stutter problem (even when others do not have it yes), it HAS been acknowledged by Blizzard, end of story.

    I had to copy the game folder on an USB memory drive and when I run it from there it runs 100 times better, which is ridiculous as my new 2Tb HDD should run it perfectly fine, it's not that the game needs to load Gigabytes while gaming, let's be honest, the game is technologically simple! (And yes I love the game).

    I just tried this. Latest drivers (304.48). 3570k @ 4.6Ghz, GTX 670. No stuttering with my Xbox360 controller. Nothing I could notice. Now I dunno if it matters but I ran vsync on with triple buffering via D3D Overrider.

    Driver is no good here... i get no display using these drivers. Tried installing twice using English and International drivers. As soon as the driver initializes the display goes into Power Save modes.

    I had to go back to 302.80, the older ones work fine.

    What games?

    I think it would be best if we give specifics (what games, when it happens etc) in order to figure out whether it's a universal issue. For all we know it could be an older or obscure title that goes unnoticed.

    Sounds about right for playable.


    I'm sorry but again I'm not flaming when I say this.

    But I can't believe what you say at all. There is no way that laptop with it's specs can play the games you listed with high/max settings without performance issues.

    Unless you mix settings with high/low and get lucky that isn't possible on the games you listed. Unless you play at a very...very low resolution aka 1024x1024 or a widescreen equivalent.

    Well, I can see stutter as that's been discussed. First I've seen someone say it goes to 1.

    I don't own any of these so I'm no help.

    Low performance stil there in some games:
    Mx vs atv - 45-50 fps
    Test drive 2 unlimited same^
    And gpu usage 60/30%
    Counter strike soure can do 60 fps solid (980 MHz enoght) for other games not enoght

    And my card do not lower their clocks when idle its stays at 980/ 3000

    Have you reported it to the official Nvidia forum or whatever? I think there's somewhere to report issues and maybe they'll have more info for you or at least appreciate knowing your situation and the system you run so they can try to figure out the fix.

    I'm on other forums and nobody has mentioned this yet which is very strange. Usually you see at least a couple people with the same issue.

    They fixed the lip-sync issues when playing .264 I was having since after the 280 drivers. I wonder if they read to my feedback on their support site. :banana:
