    I checked the full list of supported graphics cards and nowhere does it mention the GeForce 7600 GO graphics card for laptops so thats bullshit right there with them saying this update covers all GeForce FX, 6, 7, and 8 graphics cards. When will my poor poor laptop graphics card ever get another update again:(:(:cry::cry::banghead::banghead:

    It should work with your card. I just updated my work laptop with the same card and they work fine.

    I'm sure they were given a copy of Crysis in order to prepare drivers for it.

    Hmm.... maybe if we form our own GFX chip manufacturing company, we get free games too :p

    And yeah, maybe this'll gimme better frame rates in my games.

    for why "The new drivers offer improved compatibility for Crysis". Or if you are lazy, it's cause the Multi-Player BETA has started.

    The hardest part of programming a new version of driver is how to make it improve in over all performance and crash-free. Sometimes, the latest released driver helped boost/fix that new game, but then crash on the other older games/app. You think it is possible for that to happen?

    Just installed and tested the new Beta driver posted. It worked and increased a few frame rates in Lost Planet. Nothing changed in Bioshock.

    Nothing change in my Bioshock meaning that I haven't had any crash with both old and new version of the drivers. But I had no performance increasing.
