I like the driver, will use it till new nvidia comes out i guess
Great IQ plus great performance. Highest score in 3DMark03, 05, FEAR and CSS stress test. Excellent BF2 and Special Forces drivers. Thanks Zepher, these are the best darn drivers I've used with my 6800GT and I can run it at higher clock speeds with cooler temps WOOT!
Well i made my own drivers, but im going to test these to be fair
Hmmm there is a big similiarity between these drivers , mine and xtremeG
but you have got a few more added into from a very old geforce tweaking
application which came out in the 90's
Simple the best i tried to online fps..no drops.
Dunno why but most other drivers make bad fps drops with this card.
To sum it up, this is probly the best modded driver ur gunna find, download, install then set the nvidia control panel the way u want it, and your set!
really like the drivers but the BF2 sand bag bug is back in SF's
Star Wars BattleFront 2 plays incredible I guess its a fair trade off
Awesome drivers I have tryed ngo and Xtreme g and forceware from 77.77 to 81.98 Z-Tweaked are the best I will be waiting for the next release.
I have one problem related to all drivers agp settings in osd GPU=8 Chipset=8 OS=2 Optimal=8 Via of Xp default agp drivers do not change this setting.
I had minor Direct Access problems with 81.xx those age gone too.
Direct Access thread www.forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=8434
I will fix sig nvidia 6200 nv44a
I disable direct access in Z-Tweaked drivers. It causes too many problems for too many people.
I got my 6800GT to 415/1010 last night which scored 5702 in 3DMark05 and idle temps were only 47C.
I've got my P43.firstname.lastname@example.org
Today it's darn hot so I have clocked the 6800GT back to 400/1000 but the temps are still a toasty 55C idle. I really need to do something about the poor air intake of this WaveMaster case. Water cooling seems a better option every day though I'd still need to cut a hole somewhere in the front of this case. I need to visit a friend and ask him to lend me his Dremel. Time for some sweet talking! Awesome drivers, great for overclocking with darn good IQ and every game I've played has been silky smooth.
CSS stress test 127.21
I didn't get any problems with sandbags in BF2 or SF for a change. Maybe it happens more often with High and Quality settings in Nvidia control Panel as that is what I have been using lately and I keep getting those shiny sandbags.
I'll experiment in a bit with it, right now the wife is yelling for me to clean up the garden ....:-(
I'm really impressed with this driver Zepher and although they might not be for everyone they are smooth as silk on my rig.
Keep up the good work!
the 83.10 is not that good, now that it's been two days testing it
i was better off with the 82.12
how can i install the 82.12 if the 83.1 is already ther?
Just uninstall it, run driver cleaner, boot into safe mode and run driver cleaner again, then reboot again and re-install the 82.12 driver.
This Driver is KICKASS !!!!!! Great job Zepher ....
Got to say these drivers are really bad with my set up thing dissappearing and stuck looking so bad
I love these drivers. All of my games are getting 5-10fps better than when I previously had my NGO 78.05 drivers. My HL2 framerate went up alot even at 4xAA 8xAA and actually reduced my HL2 stuttering to 'playable' although it still ****ing sucks.
Anyways, kudos Zepher.
EDIT: Holy **** your setup is badass Davy. You don't need any 'optimized' drivers with that.
I got 175 more points in 3dmark05 with the z-tweaked drivers but in BF2 the graphics seems a bit worst over my 77.77 (drivers on the BF2 CD). Dunno what to think!?!????!?!
All the \ / lines are squared like if the AA is off but it is at 4X.
I like to play BF2 with everything on ultra high full aa and af so things that happen i notice easy
these driver work great with FS2004
These drivers fixed alot of problems for me,
Probably the last 10 to 12 drivers I have installed had corruption with fs2004, from the loading screen to picking aircraft to the loading scenerios.
Fixed are the loading screen is now centered (small problem)
Picking aircraft, I can now see the pictures of the aircraft I want to choose again,
and the loading of a scenario, i get the whole loading screen not just a black bar showing the progress of the load.
Only problem is still cannot overclock my 6800gt with Fs2004, causes problems.
can overclock with far cry and COD2 with no problems
well alot of driver modders out their just take their mods from other modded drivers change a couple settings then release them... Which is why you think that way.. Not saying Z here took any tweaks but just saying in general. Often times the original modders have done the research and developed the tweaks.. Omega, NGO, Banned driver set which i cannot meantion.
