Default New drivers this week?

I was checking out the forums on EVGA's web site and came accross this post (4th post from bottom) that claims Nvidia will release new drivers this week to fix a problem with 7800GTs. If you read on to page 2 it seems to be confirmed by an EVGA employee (see post by EVGA_WShelley)

more reason to see that nvidia has forgotten about the 6800s and theyll never fix the stuttering but instead worry about 7800s which a lot less people have and we're talking minor fixes here like the shimmering..... damn you nvidia....

The only people worse at it are Creative Labs.

Somehow I think that the nForce3/GeForce 6800 issue isn't hardware. It has to be driver related if OpenGL games don't suffa from da stutta. The fact that nVidia has admitted squat about this tells me they don't give a **** about the end user, just the bottom line.

How so? They provide unified drivers that work on every card they've made (except...what model was dropped not too long ago...think it was the TNT).

OpenGL applications have almost always run smoother than Direct3D on nVidia cards. I think the studdering issue most likely has to do with a combination of factors, not just drivers, but hardware as well (namely chipset and RAM).

They had 1 year for "repair" nv40 probs, if they weren't able to fix them with so much time .. i don't think they will be able do now that they have a new businness.

i think they already did all the possible with nv40 as u can see with drivers there is never been a big improvement in performance but just fixes here and there, so if they didn't fix somethign i think is coz they can't.

Yeh if theres one thing I learned with video cards, if you don't see it in the first 6 months the card is out you'll never see it. Has always been that way with every company as far as I can remember.
