Default 180.44 on 64-bit...

I just have to say, what the hell happened here?

Either I'm on crack, or I am actually getting a HUGE performance boost playing World of warcraft now since I updated to this driver. 142FPS? Holy hell.

Now if only I could use all 8gb of my ram instead of limiting myself to just 3gb (damn wine+64bit crash issues).

Sweetness I guess the wine devs might want to retract their statement saying it was their fault :P

One of my friends said Left 4 Dead runs much faster through wine though but he didn't specify which version of wine that he was using... can anyone confirm that Direct 3D applications run faster?

Well now I have a proble. I upgraded to 180.53 and found my issues coming back, so I reverted back to 180.44 and now I still crash. Even enabling mem=3G doens't help anymore
