That has never happened to me. Are you on stock clocks? If not then you should know different drivers will have different max stable overclocks for every card.

I've noticed a ton of screen taring with a fps limiter. With Adaptive Vsync it gets rid of it, however, sometimes I'll get taring when its below my 75hz refresh... like somewhere around 60fps it'll tare for a bit.
Also, with triple buffering I've noticed alot more input lag with that than just adaptive vsync on. So I dunno.

Yeah I was on stock clocks the entire time. I never OC'd because of it. It was the 280 drivers, or basically the drivers I had when I got the card last Oct. But since that big "Skyrim 40% powah bousterz" 290 update they did a month or two back I haven't had the driver crash issue... been too lazy to overclock since then anyway. I thought it was my card at first but then I saw loads of people with my card were having that problem so I just waited for a driver to sort it. Which it did tongue.gif

I rolled back to the whql drivers, these ones run way too hot to justify adaptive vsync. Maybe next time nvidia will get it right

Tried these drivers. Love them. Can't get Rage to work properly tho. But Skyrim and Crysis 2 are AWESOME

They're very good, pretty much the best since the uber epic 285.67 WHQL.

Adaptive VSync works really good, I would be using it 24/7 in BF3 if not for the stupid frame skipping I get on some maps (when over 60 FPS, it happens under normal VSync as well so).

They do for me! First driver since the beta 285.79s to give me the option for SLI!

The official 680 driver with the modified ini performs better for me than this one. I'm going back.
post #120 of 134
Been having loads of issues with these drivers. Seems to be a common problem on the Nvidia forums.

A lot of people are getting an issue where the card isn't switching to 3D clocks when launching games etc

I've gone back to 296.10 for now!
