New Nvidia Drivers / SLI Multi Monitor + SLI on X58 - 180.48
Just noticed nobody had posted this.
Forceware GeForce 180.48 XP 32-bit WHQL
Forceware GeForce 180.48 XP 64-bit WHQL
Forceware GeForce 180.48 Vista 64-bit WHQL
Forceware GeForce 180.48 Vista 32-bit WHQL
I've yet to test benchmark yet but playing L4D last night even felt smoother than the .43's.
But yes the SLI multi monitor is the big feature really! :punk:
Nice, they were talking about this when they were choosing components for the Twit UGM, and one of the guests was hinting about multiple monitors in sli in the future but wouldnt give any details, nice to see it finally here :D Btw anyone know if the vista forceware works on win 7?
I get intermittent stuttering in L4D. So I rolled back.
I was going to post a thread about this - I recommend against installing those - Too many unresolved issues/bugs/glitches, big disappoint. NVIDIA is going downhill lately with its quality of its drivers - this is many consecutive releases that don't get good feedback - and the same very obvious bugs are not addressed yet.
Personally havent see any myself so far tested, L4D , Far Cry 2, CoD4/5, RA3, no problems :).
Running GTX 280, so non 200 series it may be a different story.
AnandTech did a comparison for a couple games between 180.48 and the latest 178 series drivers. They found virtually little to no performance enhancement whatsoever.
I just loaded these drivers yesterday and so far so good but I haven't really given them a solid test run, I hope to do so in the next few days.
I'm running them. They seem to have stuck my GTX 260 clocks on the stock max 586\1296\999. Does not throttle to and from 2D\3D at all and can't seem to set the clocks with a bios flash or rivatuner 2.20.
Weird. I've got them installed too, and my card maintains it's factory OC settings by default, included 2D when appropriate, but Rivatuner has no trouble jacking up the clock speeds further. Can't speak about performance, but haven't run into any new bugs, to say the least, nor have I found any significant drops in performance.

people in the guru3d forums are discussing the .70s as being for the Quadro cards but they work fine on all cards listed in the inf. The .70's are 'slightly' newer than the .60s.
Will be loading the 70s myself to test when I get home.
