Medal of Honor Allied Assault crashes on my System at startup. Vista64, 8800 GT
Got the same problem with 185.68.
Other Opengl-Games work fine. Quake3, Serious Sam 1, Doom3.

Back to 182.50 for me.

I would hope so, the .72 gave me a 20% performance loss in both Cryostasis and Clear Sky compared to the .71 drivers. I've been not-so-patiently waiting for these so I can't wait to try them out!

Same resize hdtv desktop for 1080p TV while in SLI. Sets resolution to 1818x1022 instead of resizing. Disabling SLI it works fine. 3rd beta in a row with this bug. :headexplode:

Nice performance boost in Cryostasis and Velvet Assassin, which is what I am playing right now. Haven't tried many older games yet...

Norton Gaming Edition lolz!

Norton Gaming Edition is the Shiz!! The new Norton replaced NOD32 on my machines, much faster, less overhead, pulse updates every few seconds, etc, etc.

Does vsync work in DX10 with these? The previous release did not.

I tried the demo of Cryostasis in Win7 at 1680x1050 and it was pants and after a couple of minutes I got an error message saying out of memory!!!

Lowered the texture settings but it was still pants. I've now uninstalled the demo but I'll keep the drivers.

"use inverse telecine" is disabled by default after the driver installs. Make sure to enable it or you may find videos don't play as smooth.

Got flickering in Mirror's Edge with these and 185.68 with SLi. Went back to 181.50 WHQL, and everything seems fine now.

These seem ok so far, not sure why PhysX is showing 203 though. Even the standalone installer does that.

they probably forgot to change the version number when they compiled the files

L4D was ridiculously dark with these drivers, had to rollback to previous drivers.

I just installed these drivers with Win 7 X64. When I set the refresh rate to 60 it won't stay it goes to 59. Is this normal can it be fixed? Is this a driver problem?:confused:

How to overclock with these drivers on Windows 7?

I actually went back and installed these again to check some other stuff, and I tried Mirror's Edge again — this time without AA, and the flickering is gone. Strange. :confused:

Does anyone else have Fallout 3 problems with these? I'm not sure if it's the drivers or the new 1.5 patch for the game.

I get crashes at times, but more important I get a lot of flickering textures, sometimes textures that should even be there.

*sigh*

I had the same problem in Windows 7, I can't set the refresh to 60, when I do, it goes back to 59.

I just played Fallout 3 for a while and I had no crashes or issues in Windows 7.
