[Geforce] Nvidia Geforce 310.54 Drivers - Page 21

post #201 of 221
I usually go to EVGA to get my drivers since I have an EVGA 560 Ti 448 FTW.

Are there ANY modifications that card manufacturers make to drivers such as linked here besides just slapping a "WE TESTED THIS VERSION" label by putting it on their driver download page?

Nope, drivers from sites like EVGA, ASUS, etc are exactly the same ones as those provided by NVIDIA directly.

Xtreme-G's drivers on the other hand are somewhat modified though, they are stripped of any unnecessary files, and come with pre-established tweaks that may or may not improve performance and image quality.

So I have every reason to go to Xtreme-G's drivers?

In the past they were all I used. They mostly get it right. Hadn't really tried any of the latest though.

Gonna try these, and if they don't work, I'll try what Cakewalk_S suggested.

I have a problem. I've got 2 crashes:

Faulting application name: bf3.exe, version: 1.4.0.0, time stamp: 0x500530ad
Faulting module name: nvwgf2um.dll, version: 9.18.13.1054, time stamp: 0x509cd85e

And i remember before this driver i've never had crashes in BF3. Anyone getting the same crash ? (using windows 8). I thought that was my CPU, but teems that is the video driver.

If it works for some of us it most certainly counts! tongue.gif

It's kinda weird how some some 460 and 580 users are getting BF3 crashes when most of these updates should only be affecting 6XX owners......

I'm in SLI atm and zero issues with it, which is just odd since we're usually the first to get crashes and issues.

No issues with these drivers so far.
Played many hours of BF3 in SLI with my 680's no issues.

Real or not ?
Has the GTX 600 Series been cut off in Hardware like they did it with the 400 Series ?

Well if you compare 580 gtx with 512cores to 680 gtx with hotclocks then its only (1536/2) 256 extra cores.


As for Software IMO GK104 is another "flop" like GF104/114 was, they shifted to much stuff on driver side instead of making it HW. But yeah making all that in HW costs extra $$$ and they don't want that.
That's why they made only 1 chip to cover everything from main****** (660Ti) to high-end (690 GTX), its cheaper to castrate a thing or two here and there., lol even that NVidia PR guy said it.

Not getting bothered by such trivial details as having the slightest proof is how you work.

I get that, and that's fine by me,
but any chance of letting us know what you mean by "too much stuff"?
What stuff is built into GF110, that has been left out of GF104/114, and replaced with software.

Just so we have some faint idea the heck are you rumbling about.
I mean it's your 570 that's TDR-ing every now and then, not my 460, right?

Thanks

lol if someone would comment i knew it was you, like a die hard nvidia defender.


For example Nxvdsyc was introduced with 260.xx+, before that it was a big mess with GF104 chip, high dpc spikes, stutter and what not. Remember 258.96whql? GF100 was ok since the beginning. About the stuff that's different (missing), well check GF104 vs GF100 whitepaper & pcb constructions (missing switches) if you want to know more.

And this brings me back to my original post. I mean they had to implement a exe file in driver to monitor GF104 or it would go out of control.

And sorry my 570GTX ain't TDR'ing, never was in idle, unlike most GF104/114 with all 28x.xx, few 29x.xx, even now, but its very rare. What after 1-2years they finally "fixed" it..


Ok yes I have no real proof, but I noticed a pattern when I observed drivers all these years - since 6600GT 60.xx+. Its mostly cheaper chips (G92b, GF104/114, now GK104) that are the most problematic. High-end chips never had any real driver issues (G80, G200, GF100, GF110, probably GK110).

And when I looked at GF100/110 vs GF104/114 and now GK104 pcb switches/resistors density differences, or whole quality of pcb, the cheaper version does lack in quality. Maybe they also left out some parts in actual chip? Idk I never opened a chip,. although I could G80 lol killed it with 3dmark06, but its already recycled for a long time
