I see no difference except for 3010 CUDA version now. :) Sucks to be the people that "lose" Video ram.

But does it run seti as fast as the older drivers? Wonder if the Lunatics or Sutaru has checked them out?

This driver package is not the same for all cards.
But for e.g. GTX 295 cards this is the only driver that works properly.
So for some of us there is not much choice, is you want Win7 that is.
And still XP 64 seems to be faster, on my cards anyway.

I'm running XP x64 Edition, it doesn't seem faster with the new drivers as such, although i have noticed a few small bug fixes and a small performance gain in PCMark score when i tested my GPU. I'll test optimized applications later today.

Thanks for the flower! ;-)

I made a forum search because of something.. and found my nickname here.. X-D

Now the 258.96 nVIDIA driver is available..
Someone made a test on a WinXP system compared to the currently fastest (for WinXP and GTX2xx) 190.x driver?
