I saw nVIDIA released the new 195.62 driver.
[http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us]

Support for CUDA_V3.0 .
AFAIK, to now only CUDA_V3.0 BETA available.

Yes, my own test showed - not all new is better..


I let run nVIDIA_driver_190.38 with CUDA_V2.3 .
I saw the best performance with this settings/software.
OCed GTX260-216.


Also other people wrote their experiences.

So maybe everybody should make a test with her/his own equipment.

[Anyone else using CUDA 3.0 dlls?]

You mean..?

GT240
GTS250
GTX260-216

No, all different.

AFAIK..
All have different GPU chips inside.
The GTS250 have a mod of the old G92/b (7/8/9xxx) chip.
The GTX2xx series have the GT200/b chip.
The GT240 have the new Fermi chip.

Amateur spoken..

Current, the fastest of this three is the GTX260-216..
