Hi

oh, another german fellow ;)

I think it`s better if we stick to english, `cause they don`t like it here if diffrent languages are used :)

You said "That`s for sure the driver, the others talked about all the time..."

Who talked about what driver, and when!?!

Is there a rumor going on regarding this driver?

BTW: I found the news regarding the empty folder in a german board (3DCenter.de) --> I have a real life, and don`t refresh the NV ftp every 3 minutes! LOL ...some guys are really sick, even sicker than me!


bye

These Driver Junkies. Drivers are better thans Drugs :clap:

Ja Leute der 70er braucht noch eine Weile schliesslich nehmen die sich bei NV Zeit damit der Treiber richtig gut wird bei ATI wird ja fast jede Woche Geflickschustert.

It's official. I think these are probably going to be "the" drivers for the 6800 users

hehehe...NOW you look pretty stupid, don`t ya!

There IS a whql driver in it now, so it seems not as useless as you thought!

No harm meant! Just kiddin`....

But let`s celebrate this 100000000000th release of a driver this week!

I know, now which one do we use? LOL. I'll at least give these a try.

*edit - Maybe i will, maybe i won't. I like the 70.41's.

So...whose tested them out?

Tried them and hell...When do they finally fix those ****ing lines in CS:S? They are there as they were all the time. No difference in performance but I think, video acceleration is fully functional now (lower cpu usage during movies [mpeg2]). Could be placebo :lame:

Main driver download web page and beta web page still not updated.
I'll have these tested out and benchmarked within 2 hours or so.

Wow...Warning...Experienced massive problem with Q3 and Enemy Territory. BSODs when starting the games (some missing file nvxx.xx). :screwy: (soapbox)
Went back to 70.41 which work great for me :)

Hi

I`m trying NFS:U2 Demo and BF:V right now, i report back!

Don`t ask for 3DM03/05 `cause i don`t give a sh** !

Games count! Not benchs...

EDIT:

No diffrence at all. NFS2 demo runs good between 40-50 frames @ 1024 All highest in Game with max AA and AF.

BF:V the same: 1024 4xAA 8xAF all high runs super smooth way above 100-120 frames all the time. (around 160-200 and even over sometimes)

IQ is the same to me, but honestly i never saw a big diffrence between the betas anyway ?!?

ATM it`s a keeper.

No problems and solid performance for me. But where are the huge performance jumps NV promised when the 6800 hit the shelves...

Can someone try Farcry with HDR and see if performance is up with these? And yea...I make a comment and then the folder gets filled...I've been pwned. =)

These are not WHQL for all cards. Aahh what does it matter, neither was 61.77 or when it came out.

NV means to say that they don't have a good enough driver to put on the driver page? Come on now, I can think of many new drivers that kick 61.77's ass.

Hehehe...yeah, that`s exactly what i like here the most: Even if there are some misunderstandings or we try to annoy each other sometimes, at the end we all laugh (even IF we get OWNED ;) ) and go on helping each other and stuff...

Thats the diffrence between Rage3D and NVNews.net.

Ok, My benches:
My card running at 390/1046
66.51 --------- 66.81 --------- 66.77 --------- 70.41

doom3: 1280x1024, ultra
51.0 FPS ------ 53.1 FPS ------ 52.7 ----------

VST 1280x102, max settings, no AA or AF
-------------- ~83 FPS ------- 95.23 FPS --- ~94 FPS

3dmark05: standard
4766 3dmarks - 4824 3dmarks - 4825 3dmarks - 4805 3dmarks

And they've got a page up for 'em now here (http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxpmce_66.77.html) ... have to select XP Media Center Edition from the list, though ... nothing for XP/2000.

Anyone tried 'em on Windows 2000 yet?

I like these so far. IQ seems on par with 66.81...
