I installed the 158.18 BETA driver about a week ago. The 158.18 WHQL was released a couple of days ago. Is there any difference between these two? Should I uninstall the BETA and install the WHQL? They're the same version 158.18.

Yes... one is a broken POS while the other is a broken POS that is MS certified.

No AA and HDR in SCDA (only Vista32 works), NHL 2007 cannot select 1280x1024 (broken and not in an .inf, confirmed by NV).

Still broken in WHQL :cool:

Okay, so nobody has answered the original question. Is there any difference in the drivers?

nope, it's just certified right? the dates match the beta, so i assume nothing has changed?

No difference, just WHQL certified now.

Still broken in WHQL :cool:

WHQL has nothing to do with fixes, it just means that MS tested the driver, and found no stability or compability issues.

they also run it thru verifier

note: on internal testing they probably have better/more accurate version.

Proves beyond doubt then that they are just a bunch of tards. (nana2)
