Shame about the bugs in BC2.
I have a feeling there will be another revision before they go live on the 24th. I can't imagine Nvidia letting the first 256 driver release with a bunch of bugs with a game as popular as BFBC2.

Agreed. That might be one of the reasons we haven't seen the 256 driver as of yet.

It's 9:30 in the morning, give them some time. They were actually on the site for a while earlier and I grabbed them. So far they are nice drivers, increases across the board, including BFBC2.

Dunno why they took them down, but they are pretty impressive so far.


Edit: They are back up on the site.

Apart from the fact that they break nHancer, these are really good drivers

Does it fix the (seemingly eternal) load times in Bad Company 2 in DirectX11?

Everything points to this being fixed from what I have read.

Performance definitely seems better in Bad Company 2 in DX11, in addition the long load times are fixed. Dirt 2 runs better in DX11, but the game has been crashing to desktop a lot with these drivers. I didn't have this problem before. Anyone else getting many CTD in dirt 2 in DX11?

I am referring to the 64 bit drivers, by the way.
