Ok, only had a little time for a few tests so far.
I will not distribute them.

A few hours newer than the 66.00 drivers (obviously), but like I said I don't think there will be any more official releases until 70.xx hits.

So 2003 scores up, 2001 scores are down :)
I haven't had any time to check out any games.
Will give CS:S and Doom3 a look tomorrow.

so will these eventually be leaked onto the net or is this some kind of closed beta you got into? (Althought I think the closed betas are how they end up getting leaked?)

Well I won't be leaking them :)

Thought I had made a mistake here when I benched HL2...

I know your not leaking them =) I was just asking if theres a chance we'll ever get to use these is all. Thats a nice gain in the hl2 bench! What card are you using?

POV 6800 Ultra stock.
66.00 was leaked, pretty close - hopefully they will have the same kind of performance gains...

Just played a bit of CS:S - no lag when you turn - dead chuffed :)

66.00's didnt give me any boosts =/ I was using the 61.77's before that. Maybe I should do a freash install and see if it helps. Everyone claimed to get gains with the 65.62's and I actually lost performance with those .

If you have a 6800 ultra you must of had some sort of problem the first time u tested and got that 45fps...thats a low score for an ultra with only 2xaa/af. The second score is more in the ballpark.

I didn't see any kind of improvements with the 62.62s
Bottom line is increased performance in games tho and I am well impressed with the improvements in CS:S

Gonna give Doom3 a quick blast, but don't have any old benches to compare them with.

But like I said, no idea if this is any better.

is that a typo in first post you list comparisons of 66.06 vs 61.77 not 66.02 ?

Damn that's low. I get 73.6 FPS at 16x12 High on an OCed [425/1100] GT with the 66.00s.

Why make us all waiting for these if you have them?
Well this I find a bit strange you want to post benchmarks but not the drivers... Who will know? Is that what you are afraid of?
And then yes if you would post em here then well you might get in trouble with nVidia, but then again why should they...

It isn't for me to give them out sadly.
I didn't sign any agreements but if they were for general release, they would be on NVIDIA's ftp, but they are not.

is that a typo in first post you list comparisons of 66.06 vs 61.77 not 66.02 ?

Yup, I will edit :)

Did you run the doom3 timedemo through twice, everyone uses the second score.

No, will do some tests when I get home.
More VST tests on max, min etc.
