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."

bigspender, you can't possible have played many games over the last few years considering the number of things that stop you from buying certain games according to your sig?

bigspender have you actually been over to Epic's forums to see all the issues with Gears of War PC?

Tried the drivers, but getting some artifacts in the singleplayer demo. Namely textures (like the warning flare fired off by baddies) is square along with some other issues.

Well, 169.04 (Vista x64) gave me bluescreens on the desktop so I hope these are better. I've installed them and they seem to be working fine so far... only time will tell.

I just played about a two hours of CoD4 with this driver with no problems, so it might be another issue bigspender. Although the previous driver .04 did wreck my computer hard, so I suppose your mileage may vary.

It didnt even install the nvidia console thingy or anything :S
I tried it twice :S i'm pretty sure i did get the right one too.

Anyone else have any trouble?

i was using 169.04 and had no issues on several MP levels that i tried out last night.

i guess with beta drivers you should try and stay up to date


btw, official release notes are in the link if you click documentation: http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/169.09/169.09_WinXP_Forceware_Release_Notes.pdf

Did anyone use drivers 169.03 while playing COD4? On some levels I would get horrible graphic tearing....

With all of these beta driver releases, i wish they would just release a set that works.

The specialized driver set I used was for Timeshift. It repeatedly crashed the game necessitating a roll-back.

Fuji I think that's his signature.

Why didn't it appear on the second post?

I'll be checking these out tomorrow. Performance was good on my rig but not as smooth as it should've been. I did wonder if the game was actually using SLi.

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.

10. Any improvements? Nov 13, 2007, 15:27 Ant
 
Does this NVIDIA beta drivers help the single player demo and multiplayer test? I already have the last beta driver release for my GeForce 7950 GT KO. I only get about 10 FPS with almost everything high (volumetric at low) in XP Pro. SP2.
