    NVIDIA today released this month's first major GeForce software update, version 280.26. The suite provides the latest WHQL-signed drivers for all NVIDIA GeForce GPUs since 6-series, and ION platform. It includes updated PhysX system software (v9.10.0514), and NVIDIA HDMI audio drivers (v1.2.23.3). The new drivers include support for SLI on AMD 990FX, 990X, and 970 desktop chipsets (on certified motherboards only). Apart from that, the 3D Vision component has undergone a massive overhaul.

    The 3D Vision Controller driver is now included with all GPU driver installations. The 3D Vision player now supports windowed mode. Support is added for new 3D Vision compatible monitors, such as ViewSonic V3D245, and 3D Vision compatble projectors such as Acer X1111, BenQ W710ST, and NEC NP-V300W.

    The 3D Vision stuff sounds interesting. I'll have to wheel out my old CRT monitor and try it out (I no longer have a 120Hz LCD monitor). Old driver versions tended to have a lot of software glitches when driving a CRT monitor, which I hope has been cured.

    Updated and now my rock stable OC from the previous WHQL drivers is fubar. Drivers are rubbish so far in my experience.

    solid driver set, as good as the betas with some extra fixes. Improved smooth gameplay in Mass Effect 1 and 2 and reduced screen tearing in both games

    Same thing as all previous nVidia drivers, have to recalibrate my colour setting. Getting sick of it

    Same prob, though not in OC but rather in GPU-Z's squares: OpenCL & CUDA ticked, PhysX & DirectCompute - not; WTF? Had to revert back to 275.33 & everything works like charm. With 280.26 anything DX11 (AvP & 3DMark11 in my case) is unplayable/untestable. (lol, is there actually a word like that in English, untestable? :laugh: jk) With "old" 275.33 drivers - everything is checked & ready for carnage. Crysis played ace on these, though (280.26), but it does on 275.33 as well. Will wait for better drivers. Thanx for link bta, nevertheless. :toast:
