I'm personally using them, and have had ZERO issues...

Really? Same here
Although D3d could be a lot faster.

It depends...

ZERO problems here as well, everything is running smooth as silk, especially with the latest Riva Tuner release, incorporating those AF opimization in both OpenGL & Direct3D!

I find them to be as fast as any of the other drivers that I've had used.IQ looks good too on them.

30.30 don't seem to add anything new other than what RT offers lolz. Nvidia users get their performance increase through RT and not drivers. Nvidia better get of their @$$.

Aniso perfomance increased in 30.30 over all other detonators for MANY people!

Besides, Unwinder wouldn't be able to incorporate all these optimization in RT if not for 30.30 detonators set, they don't work for any other detonator set, cause 30.30 added quite a bit of important stuff in terms of aniso, so we can expect Nvidia to raise the perfomance of aniso significanly in the not too far future!

I play with vsync on so I guess it will be hard to tell if performance of aniso has actually improved considering I never benched the 30.xx dets.

I always wondered why everyone turns off vsync. I could understand for benchmarking, but that tearing is friggin ugly. It should always be on for gaming IMO...

Your right the tearing sucks and who cares about benchmarks so long as you can play your games properly

I'd like to see the day when the framerate WAS ALWAYS AT 85fps....

Then I would consider turning off vsync.

The framerate fluctuates too much

and who cares if you could hit 12432fps in small areas?

when you're at 24 in busy areas, that's what counts. until hw gets vastly powerful, vsync remains on for me

what would be the point of turning off vsync if the framerate was always the same
