Wouldn't hurt to try the other driver that came with ini files. I heard these work a bit better than betas but then again it can vary on everyone's GPU and CPU and results they get. Some work for them some don't.

Had to roll back to the last set....something about this set of drivers just made everything sooooo incredibly slow. No bsod's or lockups...just slow as all hell. Not sure why. Opening programs, games, all of it.

well was excited to read these from work and well...installed and looks like 3dmark lost a ton of points, has made my gpu not get the clocks i was able to get. still haven't gamed yet but about to see what that's like

Based on the mixed comments I think I'll wait for the WHQL drivers.
Thanks for posting guys... smile.gif

Depends on a game, most of the time yes.

But there can be an exception, at least with all 300.89, 300.99 and 301.10 drivers (AlanWake, Crysis2,..) and it doesnt work no matter what (screen tearing galore lol) also it can cause extra mouse lag and not the other way around.. I had that in Cod5 waw MP, with forced adaptive it felt like with vsync on (same laggy feel), idk could because i have 60fps+ by default and it forced vsync on all the time.

I tried it in Skyrim and it felt a little better, i use 1frame to render ahead by default.



Also both 300.xx drivers caused TDR by daily stuff.. heh i never had that before with any 280, 285, 290, 295,. Maybe that's why nv released 301.10 as the official 300 series driver, well 301.10 were TDR free (except occasional Web scrolling lag), but then they were really bad in Bf3, 300.89 felt smoother almost like 296.10..

I didnt try any games with 301.24 yet, but overall they preform great in daily usage, its the best form all 300 series so far, at least something. smile.gif



And if anyone is curious about driver branch, this 301.24 its the newest with its own branch..


300.89: r300_68-13
300.99: r300_95-2
301.10: r300_68-51

301.24: r301_07-12


And yes it includes all gpus from GF6 to 680gtx bike.gif

I tested Just Cause 2 and gained about 4% performance @ 1080p (Max Settings, 4x AA 16x AF) going from 296.10 to 301.24 on the GTX 560 Ti.

Shame on Nvidia, that was a poor blow right there.

they needed to clean out the Fermi's first.. look at those gtx 580 prices. didn't drop that much.
all Nvidia trying to do is clean out the Fermi's first, than bring's out the 670.

yeah every 300.xx so far has this boost, i think its because they did something with Transparency AA, now it says nvidia optimized.
