I like how lately they've been showing increases since the last set (181.22).

I find the Half Life 2 increases funny though (L4D too), I mean, those games run at like 200FPS on 1 year old hardware.

Driver seems to be OK. But the beta's worked fine too.

It appears the issue with Photoshop CS4 is still there. No GPU accelearation.

Damn, that sucks about no GPU acceleration. :(

Gonna give these a go, though. :)

64bit PS is nice, really good if you have tons of ram and very heavy loads of work. but for some reason it also doesn't detect my scanner either.

I take it these are the same as 182.05, but with the letters W, H, Q and L added?

nothing big, but i noticed with these, my cryostasis tech demo is no longer corrupted and also it defaults to single display performance mode in the NVCP where as the non WHQL defaulted to multiple display performance mode.

182.06 vs 181.22 (http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/video/display/geforce-driver-182-06.html)!

I'm impressed with those FEAR2 results, especially at 1920x1200!

These drivers suck.
At least for me.
Mass Effect will hardly run for 10 mins without crashing.

Ugh, launched UT3 from Steam today, clicked Login on the UT 3 log in page and UT3.exe crashed.

I had Hardware Physics turned off in the game, so when I launched it, I turned it on, probably making it even more unstable.

However, I was able to play a few rounds.

Right now I have OpenAL off and Hardware Physics on in game. I have these drivers and the latest PhysX WHQL driver.

yes, but keep in mind that WHQL test OS stability not game performance or game issues.
