hello my fellow nvidia users, i have been following the forums for quite some time and have finally decided to join. Anywho I just downloaded the beta drivers 266.35 and have been playing various games. Aliens vs Predator has been running alot better from the previous drivers that i have been testing. Flatout Ultimate Carnage runs pretty good but still needs a better SLi profile.

The only hitch that I have run into is Battlefield Bad Company 2. I started a match and the game plays for the most part flawless except for when I pressed the J key to start to chat to other players the game froze up and went right to a white screen in which I had to restart.
Settings for Bad Company 2 are:

1920x1080
HIGH settings
at the time of the incident 8x CSAA Anti-Aliasing (havent tried any other settings yet.) I have read that other people were having issues with the AA in BC2.


My system specs are:
M4N98TD EVO ASUS MOTHERBOARD
1055T AMD PHENOM II X6 (3.85GHZ OC)
KINGSTON HYPER X 4GB RAM (1600 MHZ)
EVGA GTX 460 (768MB) SLi

BC2 still stutters with these drivers but FPS , GPU usage + CPU usage all fine.
I have rolled back to a modded Quadro driver (265.90) as they are still the best for my setup. (less stuttering).

Yes. The optimizations mentioned in release highlights for Geforce 400/500 series GPUs for BF:BC2 actually apply to all GPUs.





BC2 still stutters with these drivers but FPS , GPU usage + CPU usage all fine.

I have rolled back to a modded Quadro driver (265.90) as they are still the best for my setup. (less stuttering).

Scaling still does not work under DX10 and 11.

This driver have improved perfomance for gtx 460 or only 500 series?

All in bootcamped Windows 7 on a 2010 Macbook Pro (all happening with driver versions 197, 198, 260 and now 265):

1) Constantly high DPC latencies in *all* 2D and 3D modes. Worse than the 9600M before (which only showed DPC misbehavior in 2D). Same happens for another user on 330M based Sony Vaio.

2) Scaling for external displays still does not work. Even though the scaling option is now saved (aka does not revert back to display scaling) there is no scaling happening, but the output is send to the display unscaled. Only the internal display of the laptop is scaled (has no hardware scaling anyway).

3) When an external display is used in *Single*-display mode the GPU does [u]not decrease clock-rates down to 2D mode ever[/u]. The lowest clock-rate is 405 MHz then. When the internal display is used (even with an external display connected) clock-rates function properly (105 MHz lowest).

To underline again, this happens in [u]Single[/u]-display mode.

Besides, the statement that "GPU Runs at a High Performance Level (full clock speeds) in Multi-display Modes" "...is a hardware limitation and not a software bug." is a plain lie or at least misinformation! It works properly with the very same hardware on OS X (tested with the 9600M GT on a 2009 Macbook Pro and a Watt meter), so it's a software/driver limitation, not a hardware limitation.

Full system is listed in my signature.

All of the below issues were solved by changing to an ATI based solution:



Macbook Pro 17" 2010 - 330M GT - PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0A29&SUBSYS_00C8106B&REV_A2



causes audio dropouts on Windows 7 (DPC), Gateway XHD3000 via active Accell (F/W 2.0) DP-DVI-Dual-Link adapter (2560x1600) on Windows 7 *and* OS X = loss of colors/banding, flickering colors, no NVidia scaling, Mitsubishi HC6500 via DeLock DP-HDMI adapter (1920x1080) = cannot sync at 23.9x fps, Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit = does not power down to 2D mode on external screen, even when only 1 display is run

Hello Everyone! Well....i installed the new 266.35 beta and my GPU temperature are more elevated now. With the 260.99, the temp are always variate in 49°C - 55°C (Using the GPU-Z program). And now with 266.35 Beta are 55°C - 60°C.

This temperature is good and normal for my GPU? Im using a 9500GT here!

When will come the WHQL version? You guys will do something more after launch the WHQL version?

Experienced "display recovery"/nvlddmkm error with this set of drivers as well @ bc2 ... after about 10 minutes the screen goes white and event manager tells me something about "nv driver has to be recovered ... " NEVER had such problems with 260.99!

anyone else experiencing nv driver crashes in bc2?
