Hopefully these will fix a lot of the recent issues with the 280.26 set.

nVidia did deliver these when promised, not sure what changes are made yet.

Some good performance increases across the board though.

Installed them and they have been great so far. No driver stopped responding crap, played Dead Island for a couple of hours without an issue, they are running cooler in Windows and the clocks are definately more stable.

Keepers for now.

Ok I've tried them with Hard Reset, Black Ops, and Bad Company 2 so far and so far so good. I never had any issues before the the old 280.26 but these are good to go for me :)

The 280.26's kept doing the "not responding" crap while playing GTA4 while using high clocks (yet stable for MSI Kombuster over 30mins), so hopefully these fix that.

Do you know if these are the Battlefield 3 drivers? Beta should be out very soon, and would be great if these were optimized for it. Sorry, am at work at the moment and can't check the game list :)

The Battlefield 3 profile is in there, but I am sure it will be tweaked more once the game is out or at least the beta.

Still no love from Nvidia on the 3rd monitor being out of sync for 3D Surround users. Sucks being the bastage step-child :thumbdwn:

Still gives me random, frequent crashes in Lotro (Lord of the Rings Online).
I can only play the game crash-free using 266.58 drivers, anything from 270, 275 or 280 series crashes a lot.

Been using these since they came out and haven't had a single gpu crash and recovery while using Firefox, would happen all the time with the official drivers. Also VLC works with bitgravity streams again. Last time I was able to do that was with the 197 set. GPU temps seem lower in general. These drivers are the best thing since sliced bread.

Did a clean install with these last night. So far I only have about 2 hours in Dead Island plus a good deal of browsing with FF. Nothing out of the ordinary yet.

I'll test a few more games over the weekend, but so far I'm not seeing much difference between these and the 270.61s. Oh, using a GTX480 - maybe driver changes affect the 5xxs more...dunno.

I'm finding that these drivers don't play well with a hibernating PC. It never wakes up now so I have to hard reset it each time. Previously using 280.26, and did a clean install with these.


Looks like I have to take that back - it's behaving ok now.

Been using these drivers with Crysis 2 updated with the Dx11 tessellation fix and the high res textures add-on with all setting at Ultra; picked up 3-4 FPS with them.
Same goes for Lost Planet 2's benchmark.
Picked up 300+ points in 3DMark 11 and 150 average in 3DMark Vantage.

I also notice a few degrees difference in temps as reported by others.

All in all playability seems improved In the games I played so far. I never had any "driver quit responding" errors. :cool:

For you guys that are having that "display driver has stopped responding" crap happening. I had that problem for like 4 years, ever since Vista came out, and I've had this issue with almost any game and even with like 7 diff video cards and even a completely new PC build. I finally tried one thing I hadn't tried but saw other people say to do and I ignored it,a nd that was to disable Windows Aero in the control panel. I did that 3 weeks ago and it has completely fixed it! So try that if you haven't.

Ever since I started using this driver. When switching between window and full screen or back in World of Warcraft. The game crashes. It happens around 2 to 3 times per 8 hours of the game running.
