Which driver revision has this been fixed. I use high res pack for LOTRO and have to alt-tab continously to get performance back up.

Sounds like a vista problem. Not sure there is a fix for that.

I'm using the 169.21s playing The Witcher with every setting at the max and when I move outside I get a glitch every 5-7 seconds - a few frames dropped or even a full-on stutter.

The only other "new" game I have is R6:Vegas (LOL). It has no problems at all but it's probably nowhere's near as texture-intensive. I'm still working on trying to determine which setting is causing the stutter. I didn't experience the stutter when I dropped all settings to LOW.

Talk on the official Witcher forums refers to the "Grass" setting and how it causes a stutter. I found I still get the stutter with "Grass" set to off.

I'm hoping that this doesn't simply boil down to "hey, if you glitch with an 8800GTS 512, simply reduce your quality settings until it doesn't". :thumbdwn: I'm going to play more with this later today. I haven't got a definitive answer yet because I can't stop playing the game! :captnkill:

I just read the link above - whatever I'm experiencing is obviously not what it's referring to.
