Itold youabout the many new features and performance upgradesin Release 256 drivers back in May, when we released the beta version. In today's release, we're also including a great new feature that adds support for 3D Vision Streaming with Silverlight.

Aren't these the same drivers we've been talking about for the last 2 weeks? If not, have anyone tried these drivers?

I can confirm now the afterburner was the problem too, got quite a few hours on this set now and they are stable and look good.

That's all I ask.
