Real NV date is 3/22, newer than 84.25 and 84.26. They may very well be good.

I haven't tried forcing the drivers yet through the device manager yet, but they definetly don't just install! A modded INF maybe?

You called ? ;)

INF is up.
Driver will be up (23.7MB down from 47MB) shortly.

I've enabled both Control panels (old and new) with modded INF.

Original driver only supports go6800 and Quadro go1400

DriverVer = 03/22/2006, 8.4.3.0

WHQL for the above GPU's only
Comes with setup and international files for those that need it.

I'll try these as soon as it's uploaded.
INF and driver links can be found in usual spot.
Feedback encouraged :)

Yeah, I got them pretty quick. Thank you!

These are the most visually stunning drivers I have ever seen! There is something about items like smoke, fog, fire, sprite lites, glares, sun spots, reflection glares, etc. that are so much softer, realistic looking than I've ever seen. The IQ is great too. They were a bit faster, but within margin, of the 84.21 set. I will definately be keeping these!

Here's my results...

01 - 26,321
03 - 20,904
05 - 9,894
06 - 5,019 / 2,493 / 2,447 / 974
A3 - 79,208 / 13,092 / 10,025

While the regular settings applet works fine, the new control panel does not as seen below.

So the drivers suck then ?

Hell no! They rock! I couldn't get that control panel to work either, but that was from right-clicking on the desktop. You have the two choices from there to pick from. I don't get why people like the new cpl anyways, I don't. Back to the issue... I wonder if there is that work around thing from the past where only one will work at a time? I forget what it was. Anyone remember?

New Control Panel, I made a slight boo boo in my INF (new CP INF require a bit of work)
You can either grab the updated INF (v31.62) and reinstall or manually copy these files to the \system32\ dir:
nvdisps.dll
nvdispsr.dll
nvgames.dll
nvgamesr.dll
nvmccss.dll
nvmccssr.dll
nvmobls.dll
nvmoblsr.dll
nvvitvs.dll
nvvitvsr.dll

You will also need to enable the 'nVidia Diplay driver Service' this can be done with 'Run' then type 'services.msc' do this with the updated INF as well.
Zip down to 'NVIDIA Diplay driver Service' and enable it.

And now you have a dual CP enabled driver.

My apologies for the oversite.

See nothing wrong with oblvion with these, haven't fully tested them but all seems good. Load Balancing bar shows more GPU usuage then what I originally noticed but it could be due to me being in a dungeon.

Do these fix the next gen performance problem on Tomb Raider Legend??

Doubled my performance in Dungeons and Dragons: Online but I get some flickering face textures now, It's a bug with AFR SLi Mode for the game (SFR does nothing).

No they don't fix the next gen mode with nvidia cards...it's still unplayable :(

AFAIK the next gen issue is with the game and not the drivers, many ATI owners are bemoaning the massive fps hit with it enabled, It's definitely playable (for me) at 1680x1050, Next Gen enabled, though I'm getting occasional frame rate issues.

Using the new CP, I found this option in the performance tab I never saw before called: Dynamic Tiling.

I will post a screenshot.
As you can see, there are three modes, Safe, Unsafe and Off. I can't find a description in the CP, so could someone help me extrapolate?

Googled and ended up on Guru3d about nHancer, hehe

Added the new “dynamic tiling mode” option, which optimizes SLI for multithread CPUs
