    @ Angel Rex - Newer drivers contain optimizations and bug fixes for games along with new game profiles with better SLI/AA flags so I always update to the latest drivers available. Of course, if you only play a small number of older games and have no problems running them then there is no need to update. It's really entirely up to you. There's a saying: "If it ain't broke then don't fix it" and that can apply to graphics drivers too if you're games are running fine.

    Some drivers have overall performance enhancements though and for that reason it's worth upgrading even if you are only using it for older apps.

    You also get FXAA. In this case newer OpenGL. Every driver brings it's specific improvements, like Darren and it black texture bug in Bully. But as you said, if you have no problems (most people on here have some sort of problem) and you don't care about newer features (I love FXAA) then ignorance is bliss.

    Can anyone confirm that dxdiag shows WDDM 1.1 instead 1.2 on windows 8?

    not sure if driver issue or not but can someone please try Doom 3 with these as the following is not working both in an autoexec.cfg with/out +exec autoexec.cfg in targetline or even getting settings to stick by setting them in-game.

    Not working via config or command console with vid_restart:
    r_customheight 1920
    r_customwidth 1080
    r_aspectratio 1 (16:9)
    r_mode -1
    vid_restart (if applying through console)

    gpu scaling set to off/on dont help.

    thanks.

    EDIT: Nvm fixed it, i feel stupid.

    I would imagine it would be 1.1 as I believe this driver doesn't have the WDM 1.2 as it is intended for Win7.

    No change log and they arn't on the site when you go thru the search engine.

    Are these developer drivers?
