    SLI users are approximately only 5% of the customer base, so it's not a big priority. A lot of people are having problems getting a single card working, period. So getting 5% of the users doing some h4rdc0r3 gaming with SLI isn't important for most of us. Some folks can't even get the desktop to work.

    Not that I'm aware of.

    nVidia has really dropped the ball with drivers. 100.64 is abysmal, just like the previous ones. Text still flashes wildly in some titles (including the great MS Poker Game) and nTune still does not work. In fact, it doesn't even install on x64.

    Performance is terrible, half the features don't work, and this "beta" nonsense is getting ridiculous. Then again, the XP 97.xx drivers weren't anything to write home about, either. But at least the basic card features worked.

    At least ATi has very good drivers compared to these. The only thing I want is that PureVideo support so the videos would look great.

    hmm, havent had any problems with my card on xp or vista, im currently running vista atm and no problems. are you running vista and xp n the same pc, or are you moving the card to different computers? the only time i ever had an explanation mark (!) with a video card after it installed the drivers was because of the lack of power, found out i didnt have my power hooked up to the card, though not enough power could be the problem too. but since you say you have no problems with it on xp which im assuming youre running o the same pc, then i dont know what else your problem could be. good luck

    Yeah as i said before dunno why are they wasting their time for sli for 8800 users when the basic driver sucks majorly, wmv acceleration doesn't work , it crashes randomly and thx god a driver crash doesn't bsod vista. Let's not even start with that piece of utter thrash called control panel where half of the options don't work.

    Note to nvidia: first you get your basic S**T working then you waste your time for 4/5% of your users

    You have an 8800 and refuse to use Vista until you can overclock? Holy moly.

    Ya, I've had no need to overclock my GPU. I'm already getting 50+ fps in Oblivion with maxed settings and high res textures, even at 1680x1050. The only time the game slows down is when it's loading new textures, and then it just momentarily drops to 20 fps. Which used to be the max fps I'd get on my 6600GT with mininum settings. I'm sure in 2 years I'll be overclocking my 8800 and jealous of all those guys running their ATI X3800's. But until then...

    The drivers seemed to have calmed down the choppy playing in BF2 during the first 20mins of playing.. it was horrible before.. but its not that bad now. So far so good.. IQ on desktop looks crisp still with no major issues. I still have a C2D from time to time but I think thats a conflict of alot of things like when I load a map and hold down the shift button ???? Strange... but for graphics 2D and 3D it looks better.

    there has been no release or discussion from Nvidia of a released card beyond the 8800GTX as of now. You prob won't see anything till the end of the year or later.

    Driver works better than the old ones. no big performance boost, but it works with less graphical errors for me

    The 8900 is being released at the time the R600 is being released.:heh:

    NVIDIA GeForce 8900GTX will have 25% more shaders than predecessor

    NVIDIA's "ace-in-the-hole" is not a driver tweak: it's an unlocking of the G80 core. While the current offerings from NVIDIA using the G80 core, the 8800GTS and the 8800GTX, use an already impressive 96/128 unified shaders, respecfully, NVIDIA claims the G80 shipped with more. NVIDIA says that they will make the 8900GTX have 25% more shaders than the 8800GTX, meaning NVIDIA's DirectX 10 offering will have 160 shaders at it's disposal. The unlocked G80 core can be clocked at no higher than 630MHz on air, and 680MHz on water (according to NVIDIA). The Inquirer is guessing that this monster card will ship around the same time as ATI's R600.
