I'm going to repost my question for the 169.04 set here.

Question. So the last WHQL batch still had the color correction panel with the middle of the slider being "100%." This was great since I set my red setting to 88% Gamma. Now, however, it's different. The default is 25% for some reason. So, applying logic I changed it to 22%, but it looks different. Is there something I'm missing? I know it's not a very big deal, but I'm very anal about things like this, especially when I do graphical work and I want my colors to be the way I'm used to them.
Thanks for any help you can offer.

That's nice to hear. Better performance in Crysis as well?

I believe the one which broke the water reflections unless you renamed the executable. :D

Did they fix the "performance level switching" bug?

Before and after comparisons please... preferably with 169.01 :p

I think these more or less help sli system's. I don't think single card performance changed. Seems IQ was fixed, though.

Crysis runs slower with these than the official 163.71 drivers. Everything just seems more choppy even after using driver cleaner and installing the drivers in safe mode.

XP or Vista, DX9 or DX10?

Nothing like destroying the GOTY COD4 for the runner up Crysis.

And what errors might those be? I ran COD4 after installing 169.09 and received no errors. Maybe you can elaborate on this one for us.

Xp DX9. Its odd as most people are saying the fps goes up albeit by a small margin.

Can some tell me if they find the performance in Prey has dropped with these ? I play Prey @ 1920x1200 totally maxxed settings/+patched + 4x AA and 16X AF,and its just buttery smooth with the 01's.It tanks with anything higher,driver cleaner or not.

Going form the 01's to the 04's,lowered OpenGL performance (in Prey/Q4) a good deal with the 04's,and I dont want a repeat of that IF I can help it.

I recently bought COD4 and I have to say I was not impressed. It doesn't even look that much better than COD2 and the gameplay is more of the same.

My GOTY goes to Bioshock (technical issues aside)

I haven't had a chance to really play CRYSIS because of its so slow on my system, so I can't say if it's a good game or not. However, I do feel it was rushed out the door like BioShock and with the first or second patch and new hardware will be a much better experience.

This driver total rocks, playing the demo with everything on Very High is almost do-able now. Everything on very except post-processing and shadows on high is just buttery smooth :)

Ran these on Crysis on XP 32bit, never really noticed any difference.

There is a fix for that and it works very well:

r_DepthOfField = from 2 to 1 or 0.
e_detail_materials_view_dist_xy = 4096 or 8192.
e_terrain_normal_map = 0
r_TexturesStreaming = 0

Make sure that r_TexturesStreaming is at the end of the list.

It will get you closer to getting to this image - http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/2606/dx91900farawayly2.th.jpg (http://img209.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dx91900farawayly2.jpg)

these drivers must be mainly made to help vista cause they improved my fps in crysis and in cod4.
Crysis is much faster.
Went from 30 fps to 45 in Crysis.
