I can confirm the issue with Halo. Tried changing options, nothing fixed it.

G80 and all drivers are borked atm. Basically the whole senario is pretty sad all round at present.

If current state of affairs (G80, 680i, drivers etc) are anything to go on then it looks like the future of hardware/refreshes/next gen are going to get worse and more problamatic.

I have just tried Gothic 3 , i also got stuttering sometime , how should i configure the sli profile ? i just turned on AFR . I though this might be some problem with the dual core optimizer , i couldn't run the program and my power supply is sufficient . There is some compatibility problem about G80, and SLI doesn't help improve fps a lot .

This generation was a pretty big jump in terms of architecture over previous ones. The cards have only been out for a little over a month so I have faith they will straighten out most of the issues in time. This is the price we pay for being early adopters.

And your point is? Someone said they don't play source games so I was showing them what the issue was. Unlike you, the rest of us aren't omnipotent, so stop being a prick by assuming that we've all been here since day 1.

Man, am I tired of hearing that... That's the price we pay ON TOP of the $650 we paid to be early adopters.

I'm tired of the manufacturers releasing half-backed drivers with new cards. Don't they have beta testers?

Of course they do......... It's just hard to get them out of the bar.

Lets try to keep this as ON TOPIC as possible. We all know there are problems - we just want screenshots to them at this point. I do agree, you shouldn't have to "pay any price" just because you bought a product when it came out. Had it been fully and competently tested this wouldnt happen, but since NVidia doesnt have a public beta like ATI for their drivers (and no way for the public to report driver issues) we have to deal with the blind in house beta testers that dont even know what AA is.

Anyways - lets keep this to screenshots because some of us are trying to get Nvidia to take a look at this thread.

This is list of my games:
http://hulan.cz/temp/games.png

They are all playable, just SCDA must have "high-res shader" off. Oblivion and Gothic III rune fine with HDR+FSAA on. In fact, I am extremely happy with 8800GTX, it replaced 2x7900GTX-512, and performs on par, many times even better, than previous SLI combo. Much less noise. And I could finally get rid-off AMD X2 on buggy nForce4 chipset, and get C2D :-)
