Been Testing with these drivers some improvements noticed,
I don't work with famous 3Dmark bench programs but testing
it out with Games like IL 2 Sturmovik and MS TrainSimulator.
Why i don't like DiaShows!!!!!!!!

WHQL drivers don't always make it to nVidia's FTP before they are leaked. Thanks EDLIM :)

I'll give 'em a shot, although I really like the 66.00 set. I'll post my opinion of these after I try them. Good find.

66.00 beta are a very nice set indeed, performance wise. However I did have one problem with Digital Vibrance. And I love my digital vibrance ;) Works fine with 65.73 WHQL.

Thanks EDLIM

Many positive posts over at Guru3d regarding these drivers.

Some reports at eVGA Forum that they cured the 6800GT "Lockup Issue", but still early days.

I like em - no probs in anything at all yet and IQ is lovely.

DV works fine as does gamma again.

These are extremely good drivers ... aside from very good IQ and performance increases in Doom3, FarCry, & Morrowind these drivers seem to render web pages faster --- probably just my imagination.

Just tested them, some improvements noticed, but still
the old famous fog bug been back in FarCry....
Driver is very stable and sm 3.0 works! :clap2:

They are in fact 61.21 drivers. (6.14.10.6121)

Download the ones at the top of the list."

they also train your dog, excite your wife, and make your penis grow! :D

not to make fun of you though, I know exactly what you mean. I'm always falling victim to that placebo effect, it's so hard not to, and it makes me feel like a sucker every time

A few more FPS at the settings I run at in Far Cry, Doom 3, and other games. No noticeable problems either. I did end up going back to the 61.77 drivers since I want to keep my Stereo 3-D support right now.

Eh, how come I get no devices available when I try to install these? I uninstalled the old driver, pointed the driver update to the .inf, and it tells me there's no compatible devices. What did I miss? :retard:

Noticed the new "Anisotropic sample optimization" option (at least it's not in the official drivers).
Anyone know what it does? I guess as it's on by default at System Performance=Quality level I'll leave it on.
