    had that with 306.02s once. First time ever, with any drivers and it was starting BF3 that it happened. I'm steering clear of 306's after my OC experiences. (http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=368296)

    Hello, I am having issues with this latest set of drivers and Diablo 3. Whenever I hover my curosr above an object in game, it seems that the gamma and color go completely off while the cursor is there and when i move it off, it goes back to normal.

    Anyone else having this issue since switching from their previous drivers?

    I'm running a GTX 680.

    did this fix AO in GW2?

    Do I still have to do full uninstall of old drivers+driver sweeper in safe mode? or installing on top of 306.02 is fine?

    AA is set at Normal.
    Everything else is set at max.
    Vsync and frame limiters are off.

    Gotta get back to work but I'll post more results later. :)

    Those minimum framerates look excellent, now all we need is to be able to switch the AA + DOF off in sleeping dogs, there's an upcoming patch expected ..

    I wonder if CUDA 5 or OpenGL 4.3 support is breaking the PowerDirector type apps.

    Just fyi , as Manuelg and you, what your are doing in-here with the end-users is one of the top reason I'm with nVidia and not AMD.

    Thanks a lot for your support !

    Yeah I really like how they communicate.

    Only thing I could ask for is to do hotfix updates like AMD does.

    When 'x' game comes out do a quick hotfix for that game instead of wait for driver release =)

    These drivers are really not good for me... disappointed and going back to 301.42. Loads of things are broken with 306.23, adobe flash overlays/powerdirector 9. Battlefield 3 isn't running as well either.

    Is this a bug or is it normal to avoid super mega stutter in Darksider 2 I have to lock my fps at 60 with third party tool (like msi after burner) even when the fps are already locked at 60fps in-game with Vsync...
    I find this a bit odd...

    I had the crash with my card running at default clocks but after applying my usual OC i could play a round without a problem.

    It happens in a few DX11 games, card manufacturers need to raise the default GPU vault slightly.

    I dunno know man, I've never ever had it before and I've been using green for awhile... most recent streak has been 480 > 580 > 680 that would constitute the last 2 1/2 years. This is the first time I ever had that error and it was within about 2 hours of installing a 306 based driver

    i can for sure confirm Max Payne3 is running much better now using the preferable pre-render '1' setting and boosting card most of time too, even though @ 1080 v synced @60fps it uses only around 55% of gpu core.
    feels very smooth and input lag has gone now due to being able to use the '1' without stutters.

    Hi,

    After installing the new Nvidia driver I found that I can no longer change the "Digital color format" to "YCbCr444". The option is available and I am able to select it, but after applying the settings, the screen momentarily blacks out and then the color format reverts to "RGB".

    Please help, without being able to set this, the colors look all washed out.

    FYI, I am running LucidLogix's Virtu MVP software which I have already disabled, but no luck.

    It seems like I spoke to soon. I uninstalled the Virtu MVP software, did a clean install of the Nvidia driver, and then reinstalled the Virtu MVP software. Everything seems to be fine again.
