Any changes over the 270.51 beta?

By the looks of it they are exactly the same, Only these are WHQL-certified.

The version number did change though, these are 270.61 and the beta's were 270.51.

Also, the driver files are dated 4/8/11, WHQL cat is 4/15/11.

Not the same set. These seem pretty good so far. They are good in WoW, DA2 and Crysis 2.

Same for me also. I'm using 2 GTX580s in SLI Surround. These drivers and the Betas before it make Crysis 2 unplayable. :thumbdwn:

Here is Crysis 2 SLI and Tri SLI Profile Fix. I played with values and this is flicker free and scales awesome. I tested with older official drivers and it worked. Should be fine with these as well.

You should report the bug to NVIDIA and include this as a fix for the issue.

That is my default profile with this driver set :p
No flickering, nice scaling but I get buggy, not properly rendered smoke. Could be related to my Surround setup. I have to check that using a single screen resolution sometime soon.

It flickers for 200 series, it works for 400 series it sucks....

Use Nvidia Geforce Export Tool to Export SLI Profiles in Text File and then Replace Crysis 2 values in text file with these values and then use same tool to import back.

Thanks. Looks like that is the default profile for me as well with these drivers. I thought this flickering was a problem with the 580's but slaWter doesn't have flickering. Hmm.. :confused:

Yeah, there are like polygonal cutouts in the smoke for me as well. Its a product of surround resolutions, because when I switched to 1920x1080, the problem went away. I don't get any flickering either.

I've played Crysis 2 on the 260.51 betas and one of the 267 betas as well, and I've noticed the smoke anomaly on those drivers too. I hope they can fix that and center the HUD on the center monitor, and fix the in-game videos as well from zooming in while in surround resolutions.

I get the occasional flickering in any cryengine such as far cry 2, the gui flickers and framerate drops. Also, GPU usage is choppy as hell (in evga precision) and in just cause 2, the game begins to artifact and eventually freezes. Heat is NOT an issue because my cards work fine with older drivers, pre-2xx. Im using 196.21 since they work the best with my cards however i cant play crysis 2 with SLI because the SLI Enhancement patch dont do squat.

I`ve installed new driver 270.61 on my laptop with nvidia geforce 310m 1GB. So now, NFS HP started black flickering and lag. also Medal of honor 2010 - The gun is like a mirror, flickering.. Now I can play Pro Evolution Soccer 11, thank you for that, but.. I also want to play NFS Hot Pursuit and Medal of honor 2010 ... this problem has not been on previous driver version - 266. I Could play NSF on maximum settings and MOH 2010 on normal without any problem, but now... sure, I can roll back to old driver version, but in that case i won't be able to play PES 11, 'coz the fix to support 310m is in new version of driver :( please help.

P.s. Excuse me for my bad English.
