Holy crap two drivers at once:)
Now the question is: Do 163.11 drivers have the same fixes that 162.22 has or is it special driver taylored for world of conflict
Looks to like that 8800 users should use 163.11 because they are only cards supported in this driver

OMG, finally!!

GeForce 8800 GTX: The resolution cannot be set any higher than
1024x768 on some flat panel displays. [309302]

Feedback please guys!

Is this that one would increase LP performance by 25%?

I've run just a few quick synthetic benchmarks of 3D Mark 03 and 06 to compare against the previous drivers I was running (158.45):

3D Mark 03 Vista 163.11: 61,883
3D Mark 03 XP highest I ever attained: 64,758
3D Mark 03 Vista with 158.45: 57,895

3D Mark 06 Vista 163.11: 15,523
3D Mark 06 XP highest I ever attained: 16,881
3D mark 06 Vista with 158.45: 15,427

The Vista scores with 163.11 were reached with my current QX6700 cpu running at 3330mhz. The XP scores were all reached with my prior cpu X6800 running at 3850mhz. The 3D Mark 06 158.45 scores were reached with my quad core running at 3500mhz. I've since reduced the frequency to reduce heat.
Overall, quite a nice jump in performance and it would seem to indicate that nvidia has made significant improvements to SLi performance. Accounting for the frequency differences, I would conclude that Vista performance has finally caught up to XP performance wtih these drivers. At least on my system:)

Seems to hang the machine up on reboot and shutdowns. Doesn't seem to allow 1280x1024 in some games still. Nothing to see here, wait for next month. :rolleyes:

Can somebody please run a comparison test to see which of 163.11 or 162.22 is the better driver??

I have 162.22 installed and want to know whether 163.11 is worth the download.

Sorry MC, I don't have Lost Planet. I'll download the demo and run that if you want to see the results.

I thought you were posting something negative since you have the thumbs down icon in your post.

In my case two bugs that was in earlier driver 162.15 (ie7 crashing graphics driver and missing game profiles) are fixed.
Also tested CNC3 and NWN2 both played good (only games atm installed)
So looks like a keeper

Wow! I would have liked the minimum to come up a little more, but you can't complain too much about a 54% increase in average fps...

What do you mean with no game profile?

I still have all of them available.

All I got is 3dmark06, no game profiles at all.

Try reinstalling the driver. That is completely uninstall, reboot, install, reboot. That should do it. I've always had profiles in every driver.
