how is it compared to 310.90? in BL2 BF3?
You tell us
I've yet to try with games but they'll be fine, i done 3dmark11 with full boost and no crashes.
Edit: BL2 looks excellent with these.
Essentially this is an ODE driver that includes the security fixes that we already saw with R310. Nvidia also plans to release an update based on older branch for GeForce 6/7 users (even though such cards are officially end-of-life).
Yeah I saw that later in rls notes
So any more testers?
Does any of you have Rage, any difference compared to 310.90?
I tweaked it so its popup free but now im experiencing some werid hitching every few seconds @ 310.90. It was ok every 2-3 game restart but now i have it no matter what..
Can it be becuase it uses DXT5 for 16384 mipmaps and DXT1 8192? I cant use all 4 at 16384..
Ok nvm, Im running out of vram even though i have ~ 80mb to spare.. lowering aa didnt help, i still got that annoying hitching -_-, I fixed it by lowering another value to 8192.
Anyway they work ok in win8, but I had to disable driver reinforcement.
Here is my INF x64 international if someone has trouble with other INF.
Been wondering if I should try these. Are they newer than the 310.90 drivers?
Yea they're newer, imo they're really nice.
Great! Will try these ASAP then.
Where do you put the inf file?
In the Display.Driver folder once the driver exe is extracted.
FC3 still running great with this set after 10+ hours of gameplay. Had a few random bsods with geforce 310.70 and 310.90.
how is the image quality compared to the 310.90 quadro?
Thanks and wow I don't know if these drivers really did change much but I just got on a dayz panthera server and my frames stayed above 64 in the northern part of the map with all settings maxed in the control panel and in game. The colors were jumping out at me compared to 306.97 and 310.90.
Edit: Just went back to make sure I was not just seeing things. These drivers are winners. My GPU is finally unleashed. Amazing drivers.
Works perfect thnx!
Glad I decided to give these a try... not that 310.70 and .90 were bad, but this set got rid the hardly noticeable stutter I had with those two sets.
Impressed so far, nothing bad to report.
Unfortunately, they were sluggish for me. I realize my card isn't exactly top-of-the-line and Quadro drivers are for enterprise/workstation environments, but I gave them the benefit of the doubt anyway. Oh well, back to v310.90.
Anxiously awaiting the next GeForce drivers!
If the 310.90's are working fine for you, whats the problem?
Thank you, maur0. These seem to be performing better for me than the 310.90s in Mass Effect 3. I was getting a lot of stuttering even though the frame rate stayed a constant 60fps but now it seems that stutter has pretty much been eliminated, or at least so far.
They're keepers for now. I'll run a few benchmarks, try some different games, and go to a few more locations in ME3 in a bit just to make sure it's not just me being delusional.
1920x1080, Max Settings, AA High
With AA set at normal:
Default Settings (P) 720
Run 1: 9913
Run 2: 9887
Run 3: 9873
Catzilla Beta 19:
Run 1: 5752
Run 2: 5765
Run 3: 5742
(Note: They must have changed something in Catzilla from beta ~15 to 19. I was getting closer to 10,000 before they started charging for the Tiger setting. It might just be this driver though.)
Aside from Catzilla these drivers are amazing. The stutter in Sleeping Dogs seems to be pretty much gone as well. I'm in the process of downloading Crysis 2 from Origin but my connection sucks so it might be a few hours before I get the benches from that.
I played about 4 more hours of Mass Effect 3 and I'm very pleased. No stutter, even in firefights or certain areas of the Citadel (where the stutter was most prevalent). 8xQ AA, 4x transparency AA, and High quality AO all enabled in inspector as well.
Meanwhile, Crysis 2 is still downloading 8 hours later.
*sigh* After about 3 hours of playing around with oaman I've given up on benchmarking Crysis 2 for now. Instead of loading the benchmark it drops me onto the main menu and I haven't been able to find a solution for that yet. I'll search a few more hours for a solution but after that I'm going to have to fold. It seems like a somewhat common problem though. If anybody has any alternatives for benching Crysis 2 I'd greatly appreciate it.
Just wanted to add, I've been using this driver since it was posted. Modded inf, worked like on a charm for my Windows 7 64 bit machine. I enjoy these drivers. 310.90 just didnt feel right. noticed more obvious frame drops in certain titles (GW2, Borderlands 2)then with these Quadro. Vibrant Colors, great rendering. Gonna hang on to these untill some other WHQL come out
cant get these to work with modified inf any suggestions
windows 8 64bit if that helps
never mind it was driver enforcement turned on in windows 8,
turned it off all is working great now
