The last ones were 93.71 WHQL on november 2nd that weren't that great.

can we expect the next set to have a new CP ?

Latest 8800 drivers work on all cards with modified inf files.

Yup, I'm using the XtremeG 97.44 set on my 7900GT CO SC.

I have two issues with the 97.xx with modified inf (including 97.92).

1) Video overlay has issues. It will randomly apply a blue tinge onto videos, and I have go to into the nVidia CP and change something like unticking and re-ticking 'Apply these settings to all video technologies'. It then reverts back to the normal image without the blue tinge.

2) Unless I open WMP player playing a DivX file using a shortcut, WMP will cause a nv4_disp BSOD whenever viewing certain video, namely wmv 1080p, but others too.

Other than that they perform very well in games. I think the first issue occurs on 93.81, but the second issue with BSOD definetly only happens on these modified drivers. Anyone else have these problems?

I guess these drivers come with DRM crap for high definition videos. It's a new realm for driver writers, so I'm not surprised things crash.

Especially Windows Media Player never surprises me when it crashes, it surprises me when it doesn't. Try ZoomPlayer, KMPlayer, BSPlayer or Media Player Classic.

Nice, now I 'must' to use Mod-drivers because Nvidia do Not did a oficial driver for Geforce 7 ?

No, wait for another GF7 release.

Actually, nvidia is probably having to spend too much time trying to support that DRM infested Windows Vista. Thanks to Microsoft, they don't have much time for supporting older graphics cards right now. Hell, even top of the line 8800GTX support is sub-par.

You can't blame them because the 8800 is made different from the others 7900 ,7800,6800 ,and they want to put all there energy in the new windows Vista.Maybe they got all the performance out of the old ones there was to get ,but I agree they should make one more last one to fix all the bugs in the 7900 before they abandom it, completetly.

6xxx series on up, should still get full support, not just the newest. Then again, I've had next to 0 problems with my 78GT's. :)

its not about performance... its about the driver bugs... 93.71 and 93.81 have numerous bugs to be fixed
