Official NVIDIA Geforce GTX 680 301.10 Display Driver Feedback Thread Released 3/22/10
  1 / 11    
Today, we are launching the new GeForce 301.10 WHQL driver designed for use with the newly released GeForce GTX 680 GPU. The new driver introduces a number of features and enhancements that greatly improve gameplay and day-to-day system use, but currently it only supports the GeForce GTX 680. We'll be rolling out a unified driver for all GeForce owners in the near future including a Windows XP driver for the Geforce GTX 680, so stay tuned.

[b]NVIDIA Geforce GTX 680 Windows 7/Windows Vista 64-bit drivers:[/b]
[url="http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7-winvista-64bit-301.10-whql-driver.html"]http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7-winvista-64bit-301.10-whql-driver.html[/url]

NVIDIA Geforce GTX 680 Windows 7/Windows Vista 64-bit drivers:

Since we are not providing unified drivers at this time, you may not officially mix the Geforce GTX 680 GPU with other NVIDIA GPUs at this time. Attempting to install the 300.10 driver on a system with a different NVIDIA model GPU will result in those drivers being removed.

For more detailed information, please visit:

If you have questions regarding the Geforce GTX 680 GPU, you may also address them in this thread. Please be aware that we can not comment on any future announced products and any posts of links to rumors from other threads in this thread will be deleted.

[b]Providing Driver Feedback:[/b]

Please provide feedback on these drivers here so that I may compile the information and pass it along to our software team. When you reply to this thread with your feedback, please include the following as best you can to help us reproduce the issue you are experiencing. Below I have broken down the information which will help us best to reproduce your issue based on the type of issue you are experiencing. I know it seems like we are asking for a lot of information but the more information we have, the easier it will be for us to reproduce your issue. Of course if have trouble providing some of the information below, that is fine. If you can add your system information to your profile's signature, that would also be of tremendous help as users will sometimes confirm a bug affects their system as well but do not provide any system information to assist us in reproducing an issue. Thank you for your time.

[b]Driver fails to install/complete errors:[/b]
If the NVIDIA display driver installer fails to install because of some type of install error, please provide the following information:
1) Desktop/notebook make or model (if you have a custom PC, simply note Custom PC and provide your motherboard make and model)
2) Please indicated the previous driver version you were using
3) How was the driver installed?
-Express Installation
-Custom Installation
-Custom Installation with option Perform Clean Install selected
4) Is Microsoft UAC enabled/disabled?
5) Have you used any registry cleaner/optimizer/security tool since the last successful NVIDIA driver installation?
6) Are you using any anti-virus program? If so, which one?
7) Which driver version were you updating from?
8) If you can, please follow the instructions below to provide us with your installation logs:

-Open a Command Prompt window.
-Navigate in the Command Prompt window to the folder where the NVIDIA display driver files were extracted to. For Windows 7 x64 for example, it would be:

C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\295.73\Vista 64-bit\English

-Run the following command:

setup.exe -log:"C:\NVlog" -loglevel:6

-We will need the file generated by the setup installer in the c:\nvlog directory. Also, please send us the setupapi log from here:

C:\Windows\INF\Setupapi.*.log

8) Last but not least, we could also use a Process Monitor log. To do this, download the following utility and unzip it:
http://technet.micro...ernals/bb896645

Open the program and then choose "Save". The saved file will also help us isolate the cause of your installation issue.

Please note, the above does not include installation errors because the driver does not support your product. If you have a notebook which is not supported by this driver and you would like to request that it be added to a future driver, skip down below to the Notebook Display Driver Request section.

[b]Stuttering/Poor application/game performance:[/b]

7) Power supply make and model
8) Amount of system memory installed
9) Did this problem occur with a previous driver? If not, please indicate last known working driver
10) Is 3D Vision enabled in the NVIDIA Control Panel? Is 3d stereo enabled in game? If yes to either of these, do you get the same problem if 3D Vision is completely disabled in the NVIDIA Control Panel?
11) If necessary, please provide description of how to reproduce stuttering (ie if you need to navigate to a special section in the game or play for a specific amount of time before the problem starts to occur)
12) Is it factory overclocked? If factory overclocked, does turning down the clock settings resolve your issue?
13) Are you running an SLI system? If so, does the problem go away if you disable SLI?
14) Are you running more than one display?
15) Sound card make and model (if you are using onboard sound card, you can just state onboard sound card)
16) Does this reproduce with other games/applications or just one particular game/application
17) If this is a game, please provide FRAPS logs if possible showing the stuttering/low performance:
http://www.fraps.com/

4) Have you tested the other ports on your graphics card?
5) Is this problem specific to when the driver is installed or does it occur with drivers uninstalled?
6) Approximately how long of a cable are you using (does not need to be exact)
7) Graphics card video BIOS version
8) If possible, please provide a log file by using the built in Windos displaydiag.exe utility. More than likely you will only be able to do so if you have another monitor you can attach to your PC so that you can see your Windows desktop. Make sure the problematic display is also attached. You will find this utility at:

Hi,

I heard rumors about this driver being developed directly at the Nvidia HQ instead at an outsourced location in eastern Asia.
Is that true?

I am sure that because the new 600 series cards are out with a new driver that all
of us that do not have a 600 series card will no longer get driver support and we
will be kicked to the curb and our last good driver will have been 296.10, at least
it's a good driver for me.

Fear not, BERRRR. It will be same old same old after marketing day or marketing week is over.
There will still be similar-type drivers for non-600 series cards.

I hope 300.1 gets released soon for everybody, lots of people are inf tweaking the driver so they can use it with their non 680 card. I hope none of those guys end frying their cards.

Sure you can pay 10 non-western developers for the salary of 1 american/european one.
But...Quality before quantity, that's how it should be /rolleyes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':rolleyes:' />.

Anyways, will the 300-Series finally fix browser-related TDRs/Crashes/Artifacts and those pesky Pink/Orange/Whatever Screens?

Then they should release this driver at least in beta form instead of discriminating us all. Seriously, we have been waiting looong enough for a post aa equivalent to ati´s mlaa in control panel.

So ManuelG, what are your thoughts on 6xx series? Getting one for yourself? What games do you play?

I am sure that because the new 600 series cards are out with a new driver that all
of us that do not have a 600 series card will no longer get driver support and we
will be kicked to the curb and our last good driver will have been 296.10, at least
it's a good driver for me.

We are still fixing Geforce 6 series bugs submitted by end users which are 8 years old so no, we won't stop supporting older GPUs just because we just launched a new one.

I hope 300.1 gets released soon for everybody, lots of people are inf tweaking the driver so they can use it with their non 680 card. I hope none of those guys end frying their cards.

The currently 301.10 driver for the Geforce GTX 680 was created as a separate branch from the rest of the current GPUs so I would not advise using it since it has not been properly tested. With that said, a unified driver will be released sometime next month.

Hi,


Well, I would prefer drivers "Made in the US".
Sure you can pay 10 non-western developers for the salary of 1 american/european one.
But...Quality before quantity, that's how it should be /rolleyes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':rolleyes:' />.

Anyways, will the 300-Series finally fix browser-related TDRs/Crashes/Artifacts and those pesky Pink/Orange/Whatever Screens?

I will delete any new posts on this subject since I do not want this thread to get out of hand but as I stated, we are a global company and we sell our products all over the world so it is natural that we have employees in other countries so that our products reflect the different needs of our customers. There is also an added benefit of spreading the work so that we can always have NVIDIA employees working 24/7 because it is always business hours somewhere in the world.
