They fixed the problem when using a DVI connection to a 60Hz panel it would display as 59Hz. Now it runs at 60hz.

Do these (290.36) improve the quality of the AO in Skyrim? I force it with nvidia Inspector and it works, but with lots of shimmering.

good new with this driver guys, FXAA now works on both dx and OpenGL games. First driver set that does this :drool:

no need for fxaa injection anymore

edit: lets hope it becomes an official setting soon.

Mangler Nov 29, 2011 10:52 AM

I wish they would introduce that framerate cap soon, skyrim needs it if you have a 120hz monitor!

Thanks Blaire, much appreciated!:)

These drivers were much better than the official beta from nVidia on my specific system; suffered from some odd FireFox crashes and some titles would crash in Direct3d with trying to force enable FXAA. The FXAA feature seems very seamless.

So it was from the drivers...
I was close to using Internet Explorer, that's how often Firefox crashed :)

SIrPauly Dec 2, 2011 02:46 PM

I'm very happy about having a seamless FXAA setting, really nice for titles with no AA option or if I desire to use in conjunction -- great for flexibility.

How's the color? The nV drivers looked washed out. Did you need the inf file of did the drivers install fine?

SIrPauly Dec 2, 2011 03:45 PM

I used the inf file. I just added some DV and a bit of negative lod when using FXAA.

Dungeoncrawler Dec 14, 2011 04:04 PM

A little off-topic, but I didn't want to start another thread just for one question. I was wondering, has EVGA stopped releasing the sli profile updates? Have not seen a new one in awhile. Thanks.

Thanks Pauly! :heart:

These are suppose to have a possible fix to some of the TDR problems.

According to ManuelG: "We do not know how many people this will fix. More than likely it will be a small amount. For others that may be experiencing a TDR for more than one reason, it may only resolve one of the issues meaning they may still encounter TDRs, just not as frequently. This will not be included in our release notes because we do not know the extent it will help users."

Mangler Dec 21, 2011 12:12 PM

The firefox issues introduced in the previous beta driver seems to be gone for me.

Dungeoncrawler Dec 21, 2011 12:13 PM

Anyone know if these support profile fxaa?

Mangler Dec 21, 2011 12:25 PM

The control panel is the same as the 290.3x driver, so no fxaa or framerate cap.

Tyvm, getting these :)

GanjaStar Dec 22, 2011 08:55 AM



you can find a already modified version here:
http://download.orbmu2k.de/files/Cus...FPSLimiter.zip

just replace the file in the inspector folder. hex values still work for values not listed.

thanks to orbmu2k :up:

Mangler Dec 22, 2011 08:57 AM

Ze link is broken for me.

GanjaStar Dec 22, 2011 09:06 AM

http://www.mediafire.com/?cdb7g1a27sxjnxx

i made my modified version with more values included. try that and let me know if link works.


Mangler Dec 22, 2011 09:13 AM

Looks like the frame rate cap is not a vsync replacement, since you get tearing with a 60fps cap on a 120hz monitor.

It's still nice to have for titles that cannot deal with an fps above 60, like skyrim.

Oh, and your link worked.

GanjaStar Dec 22, 2011 03:03 PM

tearing is definitely even more noticeable with this then just uncapped framerate.

In l4d 2 i was getting huge tearing when capped at 60 fps. literally half the screen was constantly jittering from tears.

SteveButabi Dec 22, 2011 05:34 PM

That sucks. I guess we'll have to wait and see if it's any better when it's ready.

I really wish someday we can finally have tear free non-vsync'd gaming. (Besides just using a slow pc :bleh:) Tearing is the lesser of two evils when it's put against the mouse lag that vsync usually causes me. Just having a tear free and mouse lag free gaming experience across the board would make me jizz buckets.
