Various Problems with 275.33
Hi there!

Yesterday I installed the brand new 275.33 driver and got a bunch problems with it using my 570GTX.

There are Problems in nearly all D3D/OpenGL games.

For example:
Dynamic Shadows in Battlefield 2142 and Battlefield 2 are beeing rendered as simple black rectangles.

In many games, objects with transparent textures (with 2,4,8,8Q,16 or 16Q AA switched on) flicker.


The most annoying problem are artifacts in every GPU (games, Internet Explorer 9,...) accelerated application.
At first I thought my display was cracked...

Is it possible to install the older driver over the new one?
The last time I saw such artifacts was when my GPU cooler died on my 9800GTX card which ended up my trash can.

Is my graphics card damaged now?
These artifacts make my butt hurt.

It really sucks that such bad drivers are beeing released.
Are there no tests/benchmarks beeing made before deploying a new driver?

Regards,
Schokomuesli

I haven't changed anything since I took my card out of the box and there was no stresstest or special benchmark done on this card.
My card seems to suffer from high temperatures (70°C +) with a fanspeed stuck at 45% while all other temperatures are fine (CPU at 18-30°C and all other thermal sensors at ~30°C).

The heatpipes reach a lot higher temprature while measured with an infrared thermometer (+10-20°).
I think I will boil my eggs on my graphics card tomorrow why playing a game xD.

A huge problem is, that the vendor where I bought my card does not exist any more.
Where can I get a replacement for my card IN CASE an official driver damaged the graphics card (Which I don't think, but yea. I still have 1,5 year(s) of warranty...)?

I've got a crap load of bills to pay this month and I really can't afford 350 Euros (~510 US Dollars) for a new card if my current one stops to work (It sill works, but who knows?)


I will try a rollback to 270.61 now.

edit: Reinstalling 270.61 x64 Drivers using the instructions in the sticky (safe mode, driversweeper,...) seemed to solve these problems for now.
GPU is back at usual 45-60°C.

I hope the card did not take any damage...
