installed, and everything seems the same as 81.95's. If anything has changed, it seems that 2D windows speed seems faster. Opening and closing windowed apps, seems much quicker.

You guys should tjeck it out. Stability is WAY better and the OS looks to be almost intact. Looks really nice (xmassign)

As you all know, the release is out almost everywhere (xmastong)

I'm gonna reinstall SplinterCell 1 and see if they REALLY fixed the shadows on 6800GT now (mikec)

General windows IQ looks very good imo.

I suspect many are saying "good riddance" (xmasgrin)

As for this driver, why bother installing it when 82.12 will clearly be released very soon?

Because 81.98 is WHQL and 82.12 probably will be beta. I'm willing to bet the 82.XX driver is written by a seperate driver team and will have it's own unique issues to.

Real performance gain for me, higher fps on css stress test (10%) and extra 10-15 fps in a multiplayer map mohaa. I have Intel D 830 Pci 6800, i think these are the best performance gain drivers ive ever had tbh.(xmassign)

Edit the line it refers to. It might have a special character like & or something that causes an issue.

still swkotor and swkotor2 are not working. 78.05 are latest driver that work with these games (all 8x.xx series drivers cause 100% processor usage on both cores)

They work fine for me on these and all the 8X drivers. I think that may be a duel core problem (Im still single core)
