[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.

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\30.24\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:

[u]301.42 Bug List[/u]
VSYNC causes drop in FPS every 30 seconds on GTX 600 series cards - We’ve root caused the issue to a driver bug and identified a fix for it. The fix requires extensive testing though and will not be available until our next major driver release in June (post-R300). For users experiencing this issue, the interim workaround is to disable vsync via the NVIDIA Control Panel or in-game graphics settings menu.

Full Geforce 600M notebook Verde driver support is targeted for our next major driver release

UI and sky flickers in Tera Online - Reproduced. No ETA for fix.

3D clock speeds drop when playing games with certain factory overclocked graphics cards - We are investigating the cause of this bug. ETA fix for next major driver release.

Dirt 3 fails to launch with FXAA and 3D Vision Enabled - Scheduled for next major driver release

Enabling AA via NVCPL does not work with 3DTV play resolution (NVCPL Vsync On). - Scheduled for next major driver release

Unable to enable multi-displays mode while in multi-GPU mode with Geforce GTX 295 with all drivers after 285.62. - Scheduled for next major driver release

FXAA when applied globally cause Windows Live Mail text to be blurry. - Scheduled for next major driver release

Binary Domain graphic corruption - This is a game bug. Our developer relations team is informing the developers of this game of the issue

3D clock speeds drop when playing games with certain factory overclocked graphics cards - Unable to reproduce at this time. We are continuing to investigate this issue and hope to provide a fix as soon as our QA team repdoces this issue in our labs.
[/quote]

Omg i hope you are kidding:(.Like "thousands" people reported this issue here and how it's happening but you can,t reproduce it.Try playing some stream from twitch.tv and play a 3d game at the same time alt tab between them from time to time but then exit the game continue to watch the stream and after some time start the game again and that's when the clock bug happens for me at least. That's how it happens to me it's not always, not more than one or two times per day but i am quite sure it's related with flash streams or videos.For me it happend so far the most in World of Warcraft Mass Effect 3 and Diablo 3.And since this bug have never happend in 296.10 and the drivers before why don't you roll back the clocks behaviors to this drivers for GTX 500 series.

301.42 Bug List

3D clock speeds drop when playing games with certain factory overclocked graphics cards - Unable to reproduce at this time. We are continuing to investigate this issue and hope to provide a fix as soon as our QA team repdoces this issue in our labs.

[u]301.42 Bug List[/u]
VSYNC causes drop in FPS every 30 seconds on GTX 600 series cards - We’ve root caused the issue to a driver bug and identified a fix for it. The fix requires extensive testing though and will not be available until our next major driver release in June (post-R300). For users experiencing this issue, the interim workaround is to disable vsync via the NVIDIA Control Panel or in-game graphics settings menu.

Am I the only person that thinks Nvidia is missing the point of Beta drivers? I mean you have a fix and need to test it...

My cards GPU clocks are still stuck at (P12) speeds when running in (P0) mode using the new 301.42 drivers.

WTF NVIDIA, how long does it take to fix, all you have done is paid Microsoft to stick a WHQL release signature on the supposed 301.40 developer drivers. I first reported this issue to you on the 9th of April, that was 43 days ago, what did you do, put it on the things to do list and forget about it, this is not some game that performs bad that just needs some driver optimisation, this is a major bug that should of been fixed as soon as humanly possible.

@ ManuelG: please tell me this driver wasn't supposed to fix it, if it wasn't can you please give me a ETA on when it will be fixed, and for the love of god don't say in the driver expected to be released at the end of june.

When i first contacted Nvidia about the 3D Clocks problem the person i communicated with was called josh and he said he could reproduce the issue and after restarting it worked again, he also said he would pass it along to QA, so he was rather lying and didn't reproduce it or he is more competent than your entire QA team.

Also while i am here there are different variations of the 3D clocks bug, some peoples clocks get stuck in (P0) mode and sometimes (P8) mode and a restart fixes it, my 3D clocks get stuck in (P12) mode and no matter how many times i reboot it always stays at 50mhz, it doesn't enter (P0) speeds then gets stuck there and wont power down, it stays at 50mhz straight after launch and doesn't change, so when i launch a game i get about 5 fps, the only way to fix it is to downclock or overclock my card.

3d vision performance is still off with my GTX680. Most games run much slower than they should.

A+ here Zotac 580s SLI no issues at all so far on any of the games I have played today....

Good temps, good gpu usage off both cards

I seem never to get issues with drivers tho, I always do the uninstall/safemode/driveclear/install and have not ever had a driver issue on any Nvidia drivers or doing this method never had an issue on my AMD rig either....

cheer for the new driver

Unfortunately exists with the R301.42 WHQL Drivers continue the "Red-Screen Bug" Issue with the Custom Resolution of 3840x2160 (Monitor: Asus VG278H) on a GTX680,
On a GTX480 with the same Settings and Drivers, there are no Problems.
I want to show two Screenshots with exactly the Settings to easier to reproducable.

Did you try automatic timing instead of manual? Does it have the same effect?

I was testing this downsampling and it detected 2560x2048 just fine

Also isnt 166hz the limit for pixel clock via DVI? I see yours is over 200.. Or do you have HDMI/displayport? idk how its there.

-------------


As for 301.42 they're the fastest in 3dmark2011, 301.34 vs 301.42 gained ~5 points by gpu score (before 5774) and ~30 (before 5241) by combined openCL test lol
