How did you get on with the Int. version of the Quadro's?
yes i understand we all hunger for speed but i couldnt enter to win have black screen flashing then restart, and i even try 1 card and a fresh W7 install...so painful to me
lets hope nvidia put this perf on new drivers soons
After i install all the games i want on both rigs and tested them with the 265.90's, i will be sure to test them out.
Maybe rather "only" for older GPUs instead of "especially"...
Your card is tech from 2006 basically and it has always been very efficient. Why would you think there'd be a huge jump in performance several years later?
Because he like to be awkward, wish he would hurry up and get an AMD card, so he can go moan in their forums lol.
Drivers are drivers, these work perfect for some, but crap for others, who knows why, there are too many variables to work it out, but the GTX250 was the only Nvidia card that failed lots of MS whql tests, so the hardware itself is obviously broken.
These are great drivers for me, best i've used in a long time, even those on older cards like the GTX260 are saying so, and even The General likes them
Apparently it's not widely know that the drivers contain different optimizations for different GPU series. It's not surprising older GPU's are not seeing additional performance gains from new drivers. After all, they are not new hardware with new features as Radical points out.
I like these current Quadros. Very stable and nice image quality.
yes but 263.06telsa is better.. smoother.
if you do, then use this string
%NVIDIA_DEV.0615.01% = Section004, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0615 (i used 3, but now i tried 4 and it looks better - 4 started with 260+ driver, with 197 and 258 it was 3)
and you will have to rename/add nvinfo (.pb), its .file by default.
then why did it took them so long to get the "same" performance back as with old 198.25 driver.. and yet its still broken in few games; the only difference between 198 and 258+, 260+, 265+ is that now it supports 3Dvision and multidisplay setup, WOW amazing
Links are dead?
I can't download.
I need Windows 7 x64.
im spoiled by this driver. unless nvidia adds new AA methods in the next set, i don't think any driver set will be better then this one.
I agree pretty much perfect!
I didn't monitor the old cards but usually performance is lost due to corrected bugs and compatibility for example.
As I said, those cards already had a good performance back in the days. The only thing you can hope for in new drivers are updated profiles to get around compatibility issues but I'm sure you won't ever see a big performance increase in your typical games when you compare these new drivers to older ones like the 198.xx you mention. It's basically a 4 year old product that has been renamed and fine-tuned multiple times.
Happends with my 465s aswell in BC2, first time I start the game it will always crash, 2nd time runs perfect.
I found that reinstalling dx9 fixed it, think the drivers corrupt the dx files after a while, they are instable but they are damn fast
Someone have problems with SLI and BC2 Vietnam?
I got 580 SLI and got huge graphical problems with SLI. No problems with Single card.
Alså tested 4 other drivers, but no go with sli.
Someone else testet SLI and bc2 vietnam?
BTW single 580 in vietnam have crazy high fps with:
1080p, 16xaf, 4xaa, and the rest on max. Average og 160-170 fps! :hatty:
Mutch better than normal bc2.
im just amazed that no tech has came up with an answer as to why so many people have the desktop driver crash using the 265 quadro and a gtx460.
almost everyone agrees its because of the card downclock in 2D but isn´t there a workaround this? there must be!!
fyi 265.90 and 263.06tesla are what they should to be in the first place and yet its not it.. I know their drivers well enough and how they work so you can spare your little lecture talk and myths about old hw, lol seriously.
and my point was they didnt change anything in never drivers, except added new workarounds for latest games, 3dvision, + optimizations for newer gpus since they suck in perf. And when they "fixed" newer games they broke other stuff, so yea nothing new really, it happened before with 200 series gpus +19x.xx drivers and its happening now, same $hit but different number..
Is there going to be a geforce 265.09? I don't know how to mod inf so i can't install it.
if it was the 2d downclock then using msi afb setting 2d clocks to 3d clocks would had stopped it but it didnt.
Seems Nvidia removed them from the site? Keep getting file not found.
Found someone who hosted it with modified INF (though I had to mod it for my 570). GPU usage in BC2 is 90+ at all times and seems to have fixed the DX11 slow load times (at least with Vietnam, will have to test reg to see if it works there).
i wanted to try that but it was impossible as the driver kept crashing giving me no time to change those settings, i know there were other ways to get the job done but i was already tired of troubleshooting.
jesus.... all i want is to play my games as i intended when i spent 200€ on a GC... hope monday we have the new GEFORCE drivers.
