I got them a little while ago but since I'm still using a Fx card I'm sure no one cares about those results. :) Actually, I'm more interested in seeing 6800 results myself.

It hard locks my computer running 3dmark 01. Where can I get the 61.71 drivers?

It's been working in previous drivers I think. You have to use 3danalyze. Are you saying it runs without 3danalyze?

Without 3danalyze

Ok. I just tried the demo without 3danalyze's fixe for r420 demo's. It works fine here on the older 61.34 forcewares. I wonder how the demo would run with VS3 instancing. ;)

Give me about an hour from the time of this post, I'm uploading driver to server.

The driver was originally for the Dell Laptop range (there might be other versions about as well), but now modded for all.
Driver/INF are here : http://www.laptopvideo2go.com, look under 'Modded INFs'
My version is only 8.63MB (no file loss), please no direct links to the file, it's only 2 clicks away
Many other drivers also there.

Enjoy,


Pieter.

Just a quick word of warning: on my 6800GT with two displays, 61.80 fails to detect the DVI output properly (the display loses signal and the driver lists it as analog)...

Nope, definitely a no-go for me.

Was getting random crashes in 3DMark03 using the .80s and XP SP2 RC2.

Dropped down to XP SP1 with the .80s and had the same problem.

With the .71s, SP1 and SP2 are both rock solid.

Guys I remember this happened before, newer build # with older date, turned out to be a suspiciously fake driver and tried to kill my card (to the point i could smell it burning, [its ok, BFG likey marshmallows]). Since then never will I install another driver unless I really know it came from nV.
