This seems to be a release to coincide with a new Final Fantasy XI expansion.
I am just grabbing the GTA IV #3 trailer then I will be installing - I suspect it won't do much on sec gen hardware though.

That 169.13 installation didn't last long on my system. It's nice to see much newer drivers though!

They're probably going to be officially released to coincide with the Crysis patch. Must be out soon.

I'm willing to try these drivers, but are they safe? Like no viruses or anything? Hehe :)

They're probably going to be officially released to coincide with the Crysis patch. Must be out soon.

They could also be to coincide with that MS hotfix for SLI in Vista.

i strongly DON'T recommend this driver

problems
1) COD4 demo would not even start, error something about creating 2d textures
2) DiRT crashed after Codemastes logo, about insuficient video memory
3) Witcher caused BSOD after 20 minutes of play

I'm back ot 169.12

could any of that have to do with your messing about with rivatuner and nhancer though? maybe they don't work after all... ?

Would an inf mod fix that problem...unless its is not supported in the sense beyond the actual inf.

well, yeah it is, in limited supply :)

It must be in a very limited supply, because I don't see it at Newegg....

Drivers are doing alright. Only played COD4 so far without issues. At a constant 70FPS or higher at 1680x1050 4xAA 16xAF. Waiting for the Crysis patch still...
