    Does anyone know where I can find this tool that Mineria mentions? I've searched through Pill Monster's post history and I can't find anything..

    Both are designated as OpenGL settings in the NVIDIA API. I've seen members swearing up and down that triple buffering works in Direct3D too, but it doesn't.

    For some unknown reason those drivers resulted In a slight stuttering game play. And some weird AA bug artifact In World of Warcraft.

    Btw running on a single gpu atm.

    It's much more noticable when actually playing the game than on the picture.

    I already knew Triple Buffering was for OpenGL only. But how does Threaded Optimization have anything to do with OpenGL when it says in NVCP that it allows applications to take advantage of multiple CPUs.

    People should always complain about problems with their hardware, it doesn't matter how serious YOU deem the problem.
    I don't play WoW but I can see this is a problem that needs fixing, the dude paid for his graphics cards and they're not working as intended = needs fixing.

    Not to mention this is a driver discussion thread, why wouldn't you bring graphical glitches to the attention of other users? Or even the Nvidia guys that hang around these forums!
    Take your unconstructive drivel elsewhere, thanks in advance!

    Do you know if PD uses DX/OGL acceleration or is it compute (like OCL)acceleration?

    There are a lot of us with huge problems with these drivers, programs not working, huge crashes and so on. Not saying he cant complain just a note.

    Could you describe what the problem is? Because i play WoW aswell and havn't noticed anything weird.

    I'm running it in DX11 at Ultra with 4x MSAA (64-bit aswell).

    Can't be MSI Afterburner because i run that ever since i got my 680 and havn't run into a single Red Screen. And i also set it to launch at startup.

    I gave 306.23 another try yesterday and it seems to work now.

    I completely uninstalled 306.02 and Flash Player, then installed 306.23 followd by Flash Player and now i havn't run into the Green Video bug anymore :)

    Thanks for the tip.

    It seems a lot of people are getting poor performance in Torchlight 2 and I'm wondering if there will be some tweaks from Nvidia? I'm dropping to the 40s, and even 30s nearly every pack in 2 player co-op, when really I should be able to maintain at the very least 60fps without dips, ever.

    Well it does, this has been answered in the Nvidia forums before, unfortunately they're still down.

    It's 2.8.4.6. Go to the directory and view the file's properties.

    I'm in full Borderlands 2 mode at the mo, but if I had to guess I'd say TL2 is CPU-limited. It's not a graphically demanding game by any stretch of the imagination, though it does look rather nice, so I can't see the GPU being the issue. Prove me wrong and I'll happily submit a bug :)

    Well, GPU usage when playing Torchlight 2 only pops up to about 20-30% for me, GPU boost doesn't kick in either. I've almost gone below 60FPS a couple of times, too.

    I know that MSAA being broken in BF3 has already been mentioned, but as i had already taken the pictures before seeing the post, i thought i would post them anyway.

    306.23 4xMSAA
    [​IMG]
    306.23 0xMSAA
    [​IMG]
    301.42 4xMSAA
    [​IMG]

    MSAA is still broke with the 301.42 drivers so it is obviously something that DICE has messed up, but as DICE wont patch the game again until December when Aftermath is released, it will be up to NVIDIA to fix it.
