View Full Version : 185 drivers work well with Windows 7 (20-30% gain)

04-26-09, 07:22 PM
I got tired of waiting for a Win7 update so I tried the 185 Vista 64 driver and so far it seems to work fine. There was one module that it could not find during install, though I didn't write it down, otherwise it works fine. During the install it said it was a Windows 7 64 driver.

I only tested two games but compared to the current Win7 beta driver Far Cry 2 went from 38 to 50fps (30%) and Clear Sky went from 25 to 30 fps (20%).

EDIT: Oops meant to post in the Vista/7 forum.

What about FSX? 185 series was horrible for FSX in Vista x64 IMO.

Didn't try that yet, but will check it tonight.
