Read the original thread, we've already posted that the nvidia folder has them.

Well a thread about an empty folder and a thread about drivers are two different things now, aren't they? :ass:

Don't act like you're on Rage3D or something.

That "Empty Folder Thread" is cracking me up. 4 pages in a thread about an empty folder :clap:

These drivers smell like rotten cheese.

Geez what do I have to sacrifice to get a new set of official drivers? It would be nice to know how to mod a set of beta drivers to match up to stereo 3-D drivers to prevent a mismatch error.

I wouldn't be surprised if this VPU thing is keeping them from releasing new official drivers.

Anyone know if this is WHQL on the 5700 Ultra?

Thanks!

There's a post somewhere that says it is WHQL for that card.

I'm starting to think Nvidia really does read these boards and floods the internet with all their beta drivers. Whichever one people bitch about the least end up being the next official driver release.

That's my semi-intoxicated opinion anyway.

I bet you're right about that! They probably got a good laugh when they saw the thread about the "Empty Folder on nVidia FTP!!!" :jumping:

Well, these are kind of official. They're official for WinXP MCE, and they're WHQL.

They are WHQL with my BFG 5700 Ultra, so far so good.

I might as well copy my benches from the other thread:
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

Pretty fast, I'm definitely gonna keep these even if they do have the CS:S AA bug.

Also, heres the official Nvidia page.

Windows XP, Geforce 6800, Geforce 4: Fog issues in the game Men of Valor.

And then "WHQL Certified" :rolleyes:

How many times must we say this. WHQL certification is not dependant on there being no bugs in real world games!

Yeah, all of the Catalyst drivers get WHQL certified. :rolleyes:

Well, for those who were asking about it, these do not have the DoW bug that the 70.41's have.

these seem like a really nice set. REAL smooth with great image quality. TribesV, DC final, NFS underground and FarCry were tested so far.

Thumbs up for these babies!

A patch was released yesterday solving the fog issue in Men of Valor.
I dont have the game yet, so I cant tell if the problem is really solved or not.

Look here for d/l: http://www.3dgamers.com/games/menofvalor/downloads/
