I just installed them. The only thing I have noticed so far is that SLI does not work with Lost Planet DX10 demo whereas they did with the 162.22.

Alt-tab bug still not fixed. But at least I can play LOTRO and FarCry without getting framebuffer corruption.

No idea why the thread was removed Pav :(
I don't even read this section anymore.

I thought I was going nuts, or something. At least others noticed that the other thread had somehow disappeared!

I installed these on Vista 64bit Ultimate yesterday and played several hours of BF2142 without a single issue. For me, this is a great set!

is this another instrumental driver?

There's really no need to have a vista subforum if people would just clearly label their thread titles to indicate OS. Anyways, I'm gonna pass if this is another instrumental.

No does not seem to be a dev driver - I have given the XP 32bit versions a try and all seems fine. I only have ArmA and FXS installed at the moment so my testing is limited but both work without a problem.

Usually when these international sets get dropped we see officials soon after. I wouldnt doubt these will be on nzone sometime this week.

Woohoo! PureVideo HD works on the 8600 GTS with these babies and is perfectly stable. Standard def also works a treat with these.

Anyone know if this fixes the texture evict (http://www.beyond3d.com/content/news/349) (random slowdown) issue?

Does Republic Commando work yet?

Does LCD scaling seem like it works or did they break it again?

I really like this driver. 170fps Doom timedemo, 16130 3DMark06, IL-2 performance is back, FSX rockin. Vista64 btw.

No complaints, and for those that have the TDR issue, I cranked my NB voltage way down since I am running my ram relaxed (no need for high NB volts now), disabled Aero, did the registry tweaks for TDR, and everything is 100%!.

LCD Scaling is still broken for me and the texture eviction issue has not been fixed.
