I've got dutch version XP so i cant instal this patch wrong language !
that's really too bad, because this fix is a godsend, all my stuttering problems are now gone, and with the multithreaded nvidia 81.85 drivers task manager now shows both cores being utilized over 50% during games. did you install the AMD dual core driver? some people have reported that it also fixed problems. also, disable cool and quiet if you already haven't done so.
Hmm i would like a Danish version of that Dual Core hotfix ? Cant seem to find it anywhere :-(. Cant install the English version.
That's why i'm using only using English versions.
I hate foreign languages within the "PC World".
I rather see the word "Delete" than the Dutch translation "Verwijderen" or "Wissen". uke:
x64 does not have the hotfix for Dual Core yet. I will never enable cool N quiet either, as I am OC'ng and that defeats the purpose completely.
X2 owners, are any of you running x64 with 81.87? Can you get through 3DM05 and BF2 without crashing yet?
the hotfix does however fix issues even if you don't have C&C enabled. But I have not seen an X64 version of it. Have you tried searching MS's website for such a version.
So these drivers mention performance increase again in dual cores. Does that mean it's better than 81.85 with dual core?
Can anyone with Dual Cores comment on their FPS gain from 78.xx to 81.85 to 81.87? Thanks.
I think I'm gonna get an x2 3800 just for these drivers, haha.
No x64 hotfix yet anywhere to be found
I picked up over 500 pts. with 81.84 and 3DMark03. 3DM05 kept crashing and so did BF2 for me with x64 and no hotfix. The times I played BF2 with 81.84 it was noticably smoother and solid 100fps at 16X12 high and 2XAA. 78.01 is very stable now but the FPS has fallen off a bit from 81.84. I haven't bothered trying .85 or .87 as they have the same X2 w/x64 crashing issue for me.
anyone have some numbers to show the difference in CoD2 between these and and the 81.85? i'm picking this game up soon, but since the 81.85 have been flawless for me so far i'm a little reluctant to update without a worthwhile benefit.
Is the issue of getting a resolution bug when watching video overlay (e.g. windows media player) with Java/Azerues fixed?
Do the custom colour profiles save properly as part of a game profile and stay working even after a restart.
I refuse to "upgrade" my drivers anymore, until these 2 bugs are fixed.
Run Great Keeper
These are not too good for me little 6800GT (agp) and Quake4. 77.77 has better average fps while gaming. Too bad. These drivers are now just focusing on 7800/dual core/sli
Time to upgrade?
So if i take all the posts and sum it up the bug in Guild Wars is still present??
Can someone confirm that for me?
I also disagree that its a 2nd party bug, im using the 78.01 series and there is no bug present.
Im convinced its Nvidias trouble not the games.
NVIDIA Issues—Single GPU
Open Issues in Version 81.87:
• GeForce 6800 Ultra: Textures are corrupted upon the first time entering a zone in Guild Wars.
Why won't you read release notes ??? It's only 1,2 MB .
Unless someone confirms these double the performance in COD2 using DX9 they are not worth installing.
These actually double the performance in COD2..
I have dx9 installed but in the game options i had to select dx7 for it to get the fps to max out so ya might wanna select that when u first play it..Or maybe dx9 in ur options might work fine
Well, I don't think they double performance in CoD². As far as I know, they are the very same drivers as 81.85, but with some improvements.
I've seen a bench comparing the two drivers (81.85 and 81.87b) and the number didn't change much.
Maybe I'll give'em a try. Still don't know!!
Because of what? I am overclocking my 3000+ to 2650MHz with default multiplier of x9 with 1.55v. It's running smooth with C&Q enabled and keeps my CPU nicely cool at about 1500MHz with 1.26v when it's idling or under little load.
Sound to me like a good thing especially when you want to give your CPU some rest to cool down for a while. Should help the working horse to live a little bit longer and save quite some energy (plus decreasing the general drain on the motherboard and psu).
I can play BF2, Fear and such without any problems, and even IF I need to turn C&Q off I can easily do so during runtime by chosing the "Desktop" power/energy profile.
So what's the problem as long as you don't want to change the multiplier?
is it me or have these drivers got the temp bug , in fear with 81.85 the temp in fear on my system was 68c but with these drivers it is stuck at 54c
YAY good find..
i hope my monitor wont go screwy on me
im using 78.03 (segregated Modifiers)
