Since then I haven't tried any 17x.xx series drivers on my 8 series cards. I use 169.44 on my SLI GT's and on the GTS 320 in my son's rig.
Has anyone done any comparison benches with 169.44 and this new 175.16?
I went back last night and unloaded the 175.16 and loaded the 169.44 then ran 3dmark06. I got the same score 10,5xx with both sets of drivers. I also started thinking maybe it was the drivers that was preventing me from upping my shader clock without getting artifacts. So I tested OC with both sets. I was able to get the same overclock on both sets, 708/1620/972 . No better or worse on either one, still can't up my shader clock with either driver.
Not sure what this shows, other than they work fine for me. Just thought I'd run a little test since someone asked.Edited by Steady65 - 5/30/08 at 11:24am
