Thank you, Shawn! Let's give that driver a test

EDIT: well, after 12hrs and some testing... This driver feels good, there's almost NO stutter at all in FIFA '12 or the EURO 2012 DLC, Battlefield 3 is practically the same, NFS The Run is the same thing (the game is capped @ 30fps), Skyrim is a lot snappier... and I ran out of games... hehe

Mine was the same Jeepman, 7.7

I had a quick look in Nvidia control panel and discovered that the update had disabled SLI, I re-enabled it and hey presto, back to 7.9

Sweet - I've been working like mad lately and I plan to spend some snuggle time with the PC very soon. I'll download this and the Skyrim 1.6 beta patch tonight and be going to town!!

Everytime I update I have to redo my setting(they never keep). Plus I know my sli settings is on because I run Tri-screen (3x24"). So I'm still not sure what's up with it yet. Just before I updated the driver I also updated the cards bios, to unlock the fan speed limits. So it could be ether that have made it drop to 7.7??

What?

Edit: My performance in games dropped like a rock too, I'm worried. The performance drop happened after the reassessment.

The latest drivers seem to have screwed over my graphics and I need my card running in tip-top shape in 8-9 hours.

I'm rolling back to the 296.10 drivers.

EDIT: The rollback seems to have fixed it, the new drivers are very buggy, I read there is some "idle bug" or something. I'll be researching drivers before updating from now on.
