New in Release 182.50:

-Optimized single GPU and SLI support for upcoming PC games.
-Numerous bug fixes. Refer to the release documentation notes.
Nothing earth-shattering over earlier 182's, but better than nothing, I suppose. As usual, be nice if they actually let us know what sort of bugs were being fixed, but...

The beta 185's are much more to talk about, 3-5% improvement in almost every game out there, and some games that ATi usually dominates, nVidia has raised performance in those games by 10% or more!

I am waiting for the 185s as well. Will be interesting to see how they fold. Some people did some screwey things with the beta 185s and folding. The crazy PPD has since been fixed, but there is certainly some cuda work coming in those drivers.
