    P55 mobos and Quad SLI not mentioned, means they're yet not supported or is it "typo" ? Wonder about P45 chipset mobos :)

    this set has fixed themes switching (from aero to basic and back again), with old 258.96quadro it took ~20-25sec.. now its in a sec like its suppose to be (geforce 258.96whql were fine).

    and they've added kane & lynch 2 - dog days and Alien Swarm profile:nerd:

    So basically there is not a lot of difference between all the drivers you've benchmarked.

    Thanks for posting your results. It's good that some can spare the time to do this. I certainly wouldn't have the patience :)

    Well looks like I need to give these a go since BetA13 says the IQ is good.

    Update: This driver is not for me, while the IQ may be good the performance hit was horrible, I'm going back to 258.96.

    yeah, i guess its good, but i also have a new dx11 card so it could be that it looks better because of this..but these drivers run good @ all my games..

    gonna make a BadCompany2 test , because there u see the iq difference the most in my opinion...

    be back

    You do know just because you have DX 11, it wont be used unless the game supports it. Drivers have been supporting DX 11 since the GTX 400 series launch, just this QUADRO driver now fully supports it.
