View Full Version : Performance Drop in 81.85

10-21-05, 08:19 PM
I just installed the 81.85 WHQL drivers from Nvidia's site and I have been looking for somewhere to see if I am the only one or there are similar issues. I installed the drivers and I noticed some of my games were running slower. I checked out some of those Nvidia demo things I had and for example in the Dusk Ultra demo thing from Nvidia, my frame rate has gone from 22 FPS to 11 FPS on my 6800GT. I used to run 78.01 with the 22 FPS. And in the Nalu demo the Buttons and the Nvidia logo were flickering. I have gone back to 78.01 and will probably sit on these until a new release is out. I am just curious as to if there are similar problems, because these are the first drivers I have had issues with for a long time.

Might want to look through the official 81.85 driver thread and post your issue there.

well i also experienced slow down in a number of games with the 81.85 beta driver. Once i reinstalled 78.05 it was fine again so im skipping this release.
