…beta versions?

 

No release notes for WinXP release available (yet).

Quoted from the release notes for VISTA 32/64-bit:

“...

  • [sLI]: NVIDIA SLI scaling on some applications under Windows Vista may not be as much as under Windows XP. Some applications include "S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Half-Life 2: Lost Coast, Company of Heroes, Battlefield 2142, Call of Duty 2, Hitman: Blood Money, and Far Cry. NVIDIA is investigating fixing these problems in a future driver. [302534 290803]

...

["Open Issues in Version 158.18 - SLI Mode Issues - All GPUs": Page 26.: ForceWare Graphics Drivers Release 158 Notes (Version 158.18: For Windows Vista 32-bit and Windows Vista 64-bit): [ON-LINE]: 04/18/2007: : http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/158.18/158.18_ForceWare_Release_Notes.pdf]”

 

I will upgrade anyway, and, maybe, I should start playing S.T.A.L.K.E.R. again…

I'm running the 165.01 under Vista 32bit, and they seem pretty good. A few nice bug fixes, and game performance seems to have improved a bit. S.T.A.L.K.E.R is a little less stuttery when loading scenes, not that it was bad before.

 

And I must say I love the new control panel, best of the classic panel bought back . :)
