    So they did release a new hotfix after all. Albiet a day after the release of the 6900 series. Not bad, not bad at all. Odd that some are but hurt over it though :wtf:. No reports of anyone trying it yet? I think these are the review drivers 8.79.6.2rc2.

    Yes. My last was GeForce 3 Ti something.

    Im computer builder and Ive worked for some time in computer store and servis. Usually I just build computers for friends, family. So if they (like my best friend), decide to go green way, then I will build it.

    So I had unfortunate encounter with for example 9800GX2 (which in the end cause mobo to die, due overheating, though I warned him, that it can happen). And some nVidia laptop models (they sux, all of them, except few highends in ASUS gaming notebooks). Plus for example, GTX460s didnt work with certain mobo, until mobo was flashed with newer BIOS, cause mistake in memory allocation for graphic cards. Mistake in desing that nVidia made, not mobo manufacturer that just followed specs that should be respected when building mobo.

    My current PC is i7 930 @ 4,2GHz, 3x2GB CSX at 1600CL9 (or CL8 when I need) and cheapo HD 5770 HAWK from MSI. I dont publish it here, cause Im not that much TechPowerUp! guy.. Im more ofthen on XSystems.

    Damn. I was hoping to see some member actually using these with their 69xx series card. Instead all I see are people complaining about driver update frequency and others proclaiming ATi/AMD driver failure not even related to this release. Dissappointing. :shadedshu

    Because nv's epeen got stroked because they have on card that outperforms an AMD top card thus they are better...doesn't matter that the 5970 is still better just saying.

    I would give up its not worth posting in 69xx series threads anymore.

    I'll preach this till the end of time. They should slow down their driver release and focus on quality and testing, instead of relying on the enthusiasts who update constantly to beta test for them.
