If you have the new one, it doesnt touch it. I installed the new drivers and still have the new physx.

So true. I still remember the 45% performance increase with AA for Mirror's Edge in the changelog from previous drivers, but didn't notice squat.

My God! I just did a fresh install of W7, installed these new drivers. I just love the feel of a fresh install, its soooo damned fast!!!!

These appear to provide better frame rates in WoW than any previous 19x series. :)



Actually I was wrong. they still suck in WoW :(

Try this fix I found

Supposedly turning on Vsync in Fallout & setting iPresentinterval=1 in your FalloutPrefs.ini file fixes performance problems with 19x.xx. Also - try setting maximum prerendered frames = 0 in the Nvidia control panel.

PS. - Slightly Off Topic
Has anyone installed/noticed any difference in-games with the Platform Update for Windows Vista ie your DxDiag will show DirectX11?

The render ahead 0 helps buyt in no way fixes the issue. Just happens to a lesser degree, still bad and makes it hard to play. Can't believe how bad they broke the game, especially such a popular game.

My apologies Nekro!
You've to edit that setting in your FalloutPrefs.ini file

UPDATED my fix/quote.

These seem to make my GTX275 run much cooler at idle according to GPU-Z. It used to idle around 42C now it's at 34C. Real Temp does not read the temp anymore though and neither will Speed Fan or Fur Mark.

Since installing these, I started playing Batman, and I've gotten two "Nvlddmkm stopped responding" errors, that didn't crash the game though. The screen just flickered black and then the game came back on. After that though, I got a PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA blue screen right before I finally beat a challenge room. Rolling back to 190.62s for now.

So far so good. I've got video thingies displayed on my monitor. They look to be correctly fashioned.

no problems here, clean reformat though.

Bah!
09-28-09, 12:38 AM
No problems here either.

Played Batman for about 4 hours last night, and Aion and Champions Online for a couple each today. The only problems i have with Fallout are both old issues, the crashing on exit and the HDR bug with SLI enabled, but as far as performance the game is usually pinned at 60 fps even during VATs.

Well, problem with WoW is always CPU, not GFX card.
Migrating from 8800GT to GTX275 i netted whole 0 FPS of improvement.
Only change I could make is max AA without any framerate drops.
Problem is, WoW is way CPU intensive (especially places like Dalaran), and does not efficiently use multi-cores. Most it will use is ~1.5 cores.

That may be the case, but with ALL 19x series drivers, as soon as I step outside, framerate drops to ~18-25. With 186's it is never below 59-61. (vsynch and tripple buffering)
