24. Re: New WHQL-certified GeForce Drivers Feb 19, 2013, 16:43 Asmo
I'm convinced the "issues" with the drivers are generally related to, at least in regards to the 6xx series, adjustments to the auto-overclocking that occurs on that range of cards.

My Palit 680 started getting Windows "your display driver has recovered from an error" immediately after I updated to the 310-ish beta drivers and got progressively worse until I rma'd it (multiple rebuilds, testing on a friends machine etc). Until that point it had been rock solid.

That being said, Radeon drivers currently are kinda poo... On an Asus ROG Matrix Plat 7970 (ie. top of the line factory OC'd card), most current and plenty of old games either showed bad artifacts or CTD's. But benchmarks ran perfectly for hours. In terms of pure performance, the 680 4 gig outran the 7970 handily in most tests, and nVidia's implementation of Surround is superior to Eyefinity despite being less mature.

The hardware is great but damned if either mob have got their shit together on drivers...
