Nothing specific in terms of updates for games, but it's always good to keep your drivers up to date Smiley: thumbsup

Any word yet on whether or not these drivers melt your card?

That seems to be an issue with nVidia sometimes

If we don't hear from you in a few more hours we'll just assume your card indeed melted. :)

Nah everything works fine. No noticeable difference on my benchmark scores, and I didn't really examine the new options for CUDA, but everything is running as normal.

I meant to contribute to this thread the other evening, but I felt pretty sick the other evening. I downloaded and tested the beta last week and the WHQL when it became available. I only saw a score increase of 150-200 depending upon tweaked settings. But over all with all the modifications suggested in the other threads and the WHQL driver, I was able to get my Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 with a GTX295 with the Crysis tweak a high-rez score of 3990. I read in other benchmark forums that some people running i7 CPUs with GTX295 video cards were scoring about that. I seriously hope to see better results when the game goes gold.

** Added high-rez to the score.
