Default NVIDIA 191.07 WHQL Drivers Released

A bit of a surprise for the first week of October, NVIDIA has released their latest 191.07 WHQL drivers, which seem to have a lot more in store than the previous 190.62 WHQL set.

The rest seems to be substantial improvements also.

Well update to this as I am still playing Batman on my card, which goes "as far back as the 8800GT" lol.

Sorry corrected it, was supposed to be the GTS, as G80 was released back in 2006, so it makes it pretty cool that they can now utilize it for dedicated PhysX on a card from that far back.

For those who have a card and are looking to upgrade, or have one laying around - You can now just toss it in along with your new card and unlock the whole PhysX aspect of compatible games.


Heck, for like $50 used an 8800GT would be money well spent I'd say.

I do not think I will be trying them. Maybe this is just my experience, but whenever I have installed any version of the 190 drivers. My COD4 crashes with a PB.dll error. I fall back to 182's and play all night with no problems.

Might be unrelated, but have you updated Punkbuster? They have applications for that on their website.

I agree with Perinum, although I would have to say Punkbuster usually only comes in effect when I keep getting booted from multiplayer server, coz' of punkbuster being an older version.. But again PB.dll really sound like punkbuster, try updating and it see if it helps..

Yeah I tried the PB update. Was the first thing I tried, among many other suggestions on other forums. Only thing that worked...was rolling back the video drivers. Just a little unlucky I guess.
