Default Re: GeForce 6800 and random freezes

I have a much worse problem. I freeze all the time, but AFTER the freeze the game is running significantly slower then it does before the freeze. Highly annoying. Once it freezes i pretty much have to quit the game.

Well the new 81.82 drivers solved the problem for me (with fast writes disabled)

Well the official 81.84 driver that was released by nvidia today seems to have gotten rid of stuttering for me with agp fastwrites on. It seems like nvidia finally fixed the problem.

Nothing was mentioned AFAIK but then again I have the feeling that NVIDIA wants to fix it quietly without officialy admitting the problem.
They do mention the stuttering in EverQuest II and claim that this is an application issue and may be caused by misconfigured AGP aperture settings or hard disk fragmentation

I tried the 81.84 drivers and they (so far) fix the problem as well, with fast writes disabled.

Utlimately I wish I could use fast writes without stuttering, but I hear the performance diffential isn't significant.

Yeah, it seems that all the 81.xx versions do the trick.

Wow you are right. It really works with fastwrites on (though I get some weird flickering instead)

I have a gigabyte board as well (different model though) and to get to this option I have to press Ctrl+F1 while on the bios main menu. Then, an additional option (advanced something..) appears, which has the fastwrite option in it.

Wow, the 81.84's work for me too. I'm...speechless.

(haven't tried turning on fast writes.)

I got the flickering with fastwrites on, as well as the same stuttering as before. I guess some can get away with f/w and some can not. Either way, I am much happier now.

Played Guild Wars/X-men legends 2 and various of other games today. All got the 10 sec stutters even with the 81.84 drivers. In short these don't fix anything. You just didn't play long enough to get a 10 sec stutter.
