    Here is the link showing pics (sort of reminds me of Catalyst install process). The link in that post is dead so try the following:
    here
    here
    here
    here
    for now. Make sure you scan them before opening them. I think this is 64bit only.

    "Dynamic Tiling" option new in the control panel: Nvidia Recommended, Off, Safe, and Unsafe. Also this driver update will add a process called NvXDSync.exe.

    In the package content list it looks like there is some new Physx software included as well.

    We've been seeing all these GTS450 details surfacing, that would be my guess.

    im with athlon on this! seriously with the performance of the gts450 being a serious let down they need to bring out the big guns. sadly they will wait untill the hd6XXX cards launch to release the 475/485/490/5

    Running this on a GT120. I loved the new installer design. Finally it gets updated! Anyway, seems to be a pretty good boost in SC2. I am getting a 15% increase in FPS surprisingly. I am updating from 258.96.

    nvidia will release these probably soon after the 450 launch i hope they keep the new interface and that isnt a reviewer exclusive

    theyre already asking people to take down the links... so it looks like this one isnt cooked yet... but those also tend to be the best drivers too.

    I'll put up a torrent with the drivers when I get a chance. Looks like lots of the links above are getting taken down.

    EDIT: Done. http://www.demonoid.com/files/details/2377044/?rel=1283990993

    EDIT2: Seems to have been removed. Must have broken a rule or something. Too lazy to choose another tracker (unless someone here cares).

    They are pretty good for Mafia II I have found. I gained on average 4fps with my GTX470. The game felt smoother but it’s quite possible that this is a placebo affect.

    Temperatures are identical to my previous drivers.

    One important thing though is I am not longer getting ramdom black screens whilst gaming (no restart and the game comes back after a couple of seconds). This has happened both with my GTX470 and my 'old' GTX460 running the 258 drivers.
