Here are my 3Dmark06 numbers

3DMark06 results

Official 270.xx driver 13950
Beta 275.27 driver 14057
Official 275.33 driver 13693

The latest oficial drivers give me less numbers in 3Dmark however its performance in Bad Company 2 seems smoother and probably gives me few more FPS.

Just a beta bugfix. Next release should be for performance.

I can tell that using Stereoscopic 3D now runs a lot smoother...

after downloading those drivers my 3d stopped working. And the colours look red and blue. I will install the old drivers again

Now I can´t find the correct driver(I have g73sw) I downloaded older ones from asus´ homepage but they did not correct the 3d.

The reason i got those new drivers was because GTA4 did not work well even with the most low video settings and after the new driver it did not work either

ok. the 3d now works, I installed the new drivers again because I did not remember to boot before. But gta 4 still does not work well even though my computer is way better the the requirements of the game(I have asus g73sw)

I installed these drivers this morning, and my GPU temp went from an average of 48-52C to 65-68C. This is with only having 2d apps such as Firefox open.
I'm using a GPU Observer widget on Win7 to get these temps

The problem is that GTA4 is a really poor-compiled port, and know many who play that game and ***** about the low performance. One thing that may work better is running the game in Win XP compatibility. (just a guess on my part, as I don't own the game) Of course, if there are any patches for the game, please apply them. (But you prolly got it on Steam) :)

I like to play NWN2, and there's this one part in a town in the 3rd expansion that drops to about 16 fps, no matter what uber hardware I run it on. AMD and NVIDIA both. It's just the dated game engine.
