I'm hoping L4D stutters are fixed. Also PhysX software is now version 8.11.18, which seems newer then all the previous versions. Wonder if this will do anything?

Turn off multicore rendering in L4D video advanced options and she will run slick as snot. PhysX v8.11.18 has been out awhile.

Is AA working over CP with these set of drivers?

This driver is HORRIBLE ! :thumbdwn:

There is desktop corruption, and the H264 hardware decoding hangs your machine like in the old times.

Avoid this driver. :thumbdwn:

so are these drivers proving themselves, or should I stick with the 180.84 driver for my fresh install of xp64?

I'm using them on XP64, no issues so far...

These drivers support notebook GPUs natively, but they have the same bug as the 179.28 mobile GPU release where an external monitor can't be configured as the primary display when in DualView mode. Back to 181.00 on my MacBook for now.

The download size is only 91mb on these. I downloaded this driver a few days ago, but lost it, and it was 113+MB download. Do these have the PhysX driver with them still, or is just a "MORE" compressed then the other place I downloaded it from? Thanks....

the 32bit version does not have the Physx driver; have not checked the 64bit.

PhysX has been removed for a smaller download. All flavors of 185.20 and seperate PhysX 8.11.18 download here.

Avoid this driver. :thumbdwn:did you use a driver cleaner? if you havent you might want to try Driver Cleaner, or Driver Sweeper.

I wonder why such a large jump in version numbers. The official 181.20 barely came out. This is a BUNCH of driver revisions to get this high a number. I think each .01 is a new revision. That would mean over 400 driver revisions from 181.20 to this one.

just tried these after a driver cleaner .net of my original drivers. the 181.22 gave me problems on the GTX295

the 158.20 seem much more suited to it

hope they stay ok for the time being

running a nice OC on my intel Q6600 @ 3.42ghz too

Uninstalling......
