No real change that I can see. None of the 260 series of drivers will set the Physx at Auto. They all revert the setting to 580 [1] If I manualy set it to 580 [2] it will stay there. No big deal. I'm not impressed with ANY of the drivers released for the 580s. Any 580 owners out there with comments? Any issues?

What don't you like??!!!


No issues at all running previous Drivers on Tri SLi 580's (actually the previous Drivers gave a nice boost to both Vantage / MK11 Score).....

Anyone know if it fixes the lag in dead money for FONV? Even with my newfound sli it's still problematic.

The GTX 480s I was running had better IQ,smoother etc. with just about ANY driver. All settings stayed as selected i.e. physx,etc.

^^^ Nope going from SLi 480's to 580's as well I found superior performance with 580's n Drivers....sounds as though you have "issues" with your Rig that are not Driver related at all....you should be smokin with SLi 580's, reardless of the level of IQ....I noticed you're running 2560 x 1600 Res......have you OC'd your 980X further or your 580's ?

What games are you getting "less then acceptable" gameplay?

It might just be me. Maybe a driver or something simple. It's just that I expected a LOT more. What drivers are you using? It seems the image quality is not on par with the 480s in all the games I play. I have a flight sim [IL2 1946] and that game seemed to run a bit smoother. It's not bad mind you,I just HOPE it's driver related. As you know,SLI and drivers do have an impact. What driver would you suggest I use? I really don't want to have to go through trial and error if I don't have to. Thanks my friend.

Been running 266.58 since release.....I run 2560 x 1440 ....find IQ to be excellent. I'm thinking I've trying out the new Beta just for the hell of it....
