NVIDIA Beta Drivers for Crysis

This page provides downloads of a new beta version 169.09 WinXP ForceWare reference driver for NVIDIA graphics accelerators, also available for 32-Bit Vista, 64-bit Vista, and 64-bit WinXP. This release promises "several game and application compatibility fixes," and while this is a beta, the release notes also call this the "Recommended driver for Crysis."

Not sure if this is 100% true but here is what I found online.

v169.09:

Adds SLI support for Crysis
Fixes a water reflection bug in Crysis
Adds Control Panel anisotropic filtering support for Crysis

With this driver, SLI will deliver 40-50% speedup over single a GPU. In addition, a game patch coming this month will improve SLI performance further.

Here are some reference performance numbers obtained using the built-in benchmark:

Crysis Benchmark Runs Single SLI Scaling
GeForce 8800 GT 512MB

1600x1200 High Settings 24.05 34.76 45%
GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB

1920x1200 High Settings 22.7 31.87 40%



Again take this with a grain of salt some guy posted this in another forum. I won't put the link ...I'm not here to advertise for the competition cause Blues Rules!

OOps I should at least spell blues in English not French.
