    Someone may. ATI drivers are typically released in the teen days of the month. Is there a pattern or anything like that for Nvidia drivers. Are these the next official drivers to be published?

    Thanks,

    No, could be 6+ months before Nvidia decide to up another driver set, and no one knows what numbering they will have.

    This is how it is for Nvidia cards, when someone finds a set leaked on some random Chinese website, they get modded to work on our cards (as they only support certain ones, like their latest cards, which are now GTX 280/60's) and then we get notified in here.

    If you want drivers, then you look on here to see if some have been leaked, not Nvidia.

    So far the IQ on this set its amazing on vista x64 and xp x32 , the only thing that worries me its that i cannot get my overclocks that i used to run stable before on other sets of drivers :( , it has limits my cards overclocks.

    Same here, been running them from the moment they leaked and so far they're great, no problems found + installed games are listed correctly in CP and IQ is great. Best driver so far.

    No, the best thing to do is to install NVIDIA PhysX 8.06.12.

    Installed today, seems great thus far. IQ seems about the same. Then again, I was playing CS:S and Portal.

    Benchmarks are lame but ...

    Benchmarks are lame but they are quick and easy.

    these drivers really let me push my overclocking of the gpu's with Precision Tune.

    My 3D Vantage score is just above 10,000 now. Before it was 9,950. Sometimes it gets up to 10,200. That initial scene with Jane is almost like watching a video. She does have some creepy white light leaking out of her eyes. And what is with those lame stunt planes in the cpu test?

    The games were already maxed out setting wise but the IQ is definitely better.

    These drivers are great for Vista SP1 8800 GTS in sli.

    but, even when none of those games are not enhanced by PhysX, they should not be hindered by it either. right? so, I guess that it wouldn't hurt to have PhysX installed until more games are supported.

    I think that gears of war do.. go to www.nzone.com and check out the games that support it.

    Those are games supposed to be supported in the FUTURE. PhysX support in actual drivers is in BETA state. It was a press release as a technological demonstration. It's like: "hey look at this, it will kick a** soon". They still have work to do... wait and see :)

    i was very skeptical lol:pc1: about this driver (had some probs with xfastest a while ago), i went from 175.16 to 177.41 had a bsod (never before) in cod4 and than later in stalker, i returned to 175.19 noticed strange stutter in ut3 and cod4:3eyes: again returned back to 175.16 lol, all seemed fine but i missed the boost of 177 series, so i finally tried these and i must say all games run superb lol :D, ut3 and cod4 runs smooth, fear too, q4 also,.. keepers for now. :)
