Fixed corruption in bf2142, but bioshock (stutters like crazy) and grid still show some flickering, grid is worse than ever:




Nvidia driver support for 1gb 9800gt is nonexistent, where are nvidia focus group members when you need them?

I wonder if this fixes the crashing when playing ut3. Since re-installing, I can't go past 180.84's without crashing.

I'll have to give these a try. Thanks Pirate.

since fear 2 was not playable until now, a ten percent increase over NOTHING is a great improvement.

Although a little off-topic, I noticed there are no listings on newegg for the 280 cards from evga? Anything happening I don't know about? Thanks.

After seeing your post, I did a search for 280GTX. Only BFG, iBUYPOWER, and ZOTAC were listed.

Possible, the 280 supply has dried up?

Always nice to come here and find a new set of NV drivers.. Thanks for heads up Pirate

Double bonus as my bro dropped off FEAR2 today.. Looks like some nice gains with this new set.. hopefully stability is there too for SLI users..

Well the GTX 285 is the replacement for that card, so it's not surprising. I found a EVGA here at the Zip, but the price is crazy ...

XFX, Asus, and Gigabyte cards are here ...

But you're right it does look like stock is disappearing already.

LOL, they must have caught on to the fact that the supply is running out.

I guess they're capitalizing on people who still want one for SLI. Anyone else would obviously be better off getting a 285.

I remember when the high end socket 939 Athlon X2s started running out they starting going up in price (up to $400+ in some cases). This made sense because if you had a socket 939 motherboard, wanted more speed, and didn't want to build a new system, these processors were the only place to go.

That would be really useful if you were getting averages around 28 fps before.

Yup I'm guessing they did something with SLI as its happening in a few other game loading screens with SLI enabled.
