    No, it really hasn't taken them a long time to release this. Their last driver release was less than a month ago. However, they have just recently gotten back into the rythem of monthly driver releases.

    If it would fix the video tearing problem, they'd probably announce it in fat letters.

    No problems with Rivatuner over here, but then again I don't have an 8000 series card.

    Ya, now that the Crysis demo is over(that was soooo anticlimatical lol), I'm going to revert back to 163 until Riva gets an update.


    But at least that Gainward tool was temporarily helpful.

    This is pretty much it :

    # Recommended driver for Crysis single player game demo.
    # Several game and application compatibility fixes. Please read the release notes for more information on product support, features, driver fixes and known compatibility issues.


    As I posted in another thread, the 163.69 had Crysis optimization listed in it's notes, and the 169 wasn't an improvement FPS wise. It might be for some, but I think more for lower end systems.
