So....which is it NVIDIA. Stop confusing me. You either support the 6, 7, AND 8 series or don't. You either support DirectX10 in SLI or don't. The guy who wrote this should be whacked upside the head!

I'm guessing it works for 6 and 7 and 8 series GPUs.

Thanks for the heads up JimBobb! Will try them as soon as download is complete. Now all we need is a DX10 game or benchmark:D

Huh? What do U mean... I never had a 1280x1024 problem... :o

3Dmark05 and 3DMark06 give me the same score. (16700 & 10750)

HL2 stresstest 1280x1024 8xAA 16xAF 245FPS. No gain.

Testing FEAR now.

I've only done a few tests so far, but these are by far the best Vista drivers released yet. Performance is now truly on par with Windows XP! The nvidia driver team is finally back in form and firing on all cylinders with Windows Vista. Congratulations nvidia(nana2)

Tested FEAR:

1280x1024 4XAA 16xAF MAXED

min 54FPS
av 111FPS
max 265FPS.

All the scores are the same as the 158.24 & 158.18 over here. :confused:

Maybe these are DX10 (demo) optimized?

:D Got a massive framerate boost in stalker.

Also stuttering I was getting is CSS has now gone

These are the drivers that guru3d used to do the DX10 benchmark of COJ. Was wondering how long it would take for them to be released. :)

Are there any other games that finally get a decent boost now in SLI + Vista?

Anybody else unable to save specific game profiles again?? I can't get the game profiles to stick again. I used the xdc driver cleaner to remove left over files so that should be the problem.

I will test these when I get home from work - I hope it fixes the problem I have where SLI performance is slower than using a single card.

So far my performance and IQ appears identical with the 160.03s.

@stefan9, my profiles are working.

No reason to not keep them installed yet.

Are these newer than 160.03 despite lower number?

160.03s are 04/27/2007

Stalker does seem faster with these drivers. I'll run the time-demo to be sure
