As I said in the leaked thread, for me this driver is the worst driver I've used in awhile.

ive been running the drivers, in game performance are good, but Windows 7 Aero just keeps crapping out on me, and it will no longer activate actually, i cant re-enable transparency(the glass look thingy), its stuck on the crappy looking Basic theme.

Lower the normal performance in iracing, with Dirt2, and Mafia2 I've had hard lockups/black screen. It's not really crashing every time, it's just stops responding/locks up. It only happens with this driver, tried both official and leaked. I'll giver another go when the WHQL are released.

They're killing the ATI brand. Their next series of card will be the AMD Radeon.

I tried these and no matter what I do, I can't open the control panel. When I click on it,there is nothing opening. It's like the CP did not install. Am I doing it wrong? Help?
Installed last night...same issue as above ....nvcp would not launch....just go ahead and do one more reboot, then your golden and it will launch. Installed all but 3D and HD audio....fine so far, Temps on mult cards good, downclocking / upclocking fine and about a 900 pt increase in Vantage....still have to try some gaming ;)

What's the state of this driver? Are bugs/issues being fixed?

Anyone who's owned both Nvidia and ATI cards think that the drivers should be taken into serious consideration when comparing/choosing between Nvidia and ATI cards?
