Forceware 180.44

The new PowerMizer switcher is easier to use.

I don't mean whether or not it's possible to switch it on/off, I'm referring to it going through all three modes and not just only downclocking to 3D Low Performance rather than full 2D performance mode.

Huh? I wasn't replying to your problem Urthwhyte. Plus, why not just use the regedit method if PowerMizer switcher doesn't work. I'm not the one who made the program. :)

Release Highlights

-Added image quality and performance tweaks

-Optimised drivers

Full Changes

-Added numerous OpenGL performance tweaks

-Adjusted MipMap level of detail for sharper textures

-Added tweaks to help reduce stuttering in games

leave requests here - just keep it clean.

You wouldn't happen to want to share the technical details of these tweaks with a visual system developer, either public or privately, would you?

register and give me a pm of what you want to know specifically

and why you would want this and exactly how it would be useful to you.

and may i ask what is a visual system developer?

Then i'll see.

Did you test Forceware 180.70 which is leaked by Xfastest?

180.60 is also out by Nvidia but not yet got WHQL.

Which one you will use on your next custom release, 180.60 after getting WHQL or leaked 180.70 ?

I implore you, please do this! your 180.44 was the best driver i have ever used, and a 180.70 version would be so awesome and appreciated.

Yes, that's worked! after installing 180.70 all problems solved, but in 180.70 image less sharper than dox 180.44, and there some stuttering in some games

Can you help this? and my VGA is heated easily with this 180.70, so i can't overclock with this driver

DOX, i'm having slowdown problem with this driver. Especially in Fallout 3. Whenever I stop or trading or talking to NPC, the core/shader/mem is slowing down. which is normal.

But when I start to walk again, the core and shader is go back to 3D mode while the memory stays low....

I'm having the same problem with the rest of 180.xx driver.....

any clue??

yea 88c is normal, but 105c is VERY dangerous. if i were getting 105c, id be calling dell (my laptop manufacturer) right away. lol. i mean dell replaced my mobo twice for getting to 95c because they said that was too hot...

so the problem is the laptop itself and not the driver?

the older model nvidia 8600MGT has been known and proven to be faulty.

Nvidia has fixed this problem but older models of the card is out there and can fail.

I'm not saying yours is broken, try an older driver like 169.xx or a driver from you manufacturer and compare the temps with these.

Bear in mind these drivers were designed for desktops in the first place.

haha... i guess mine is faulty... or maybe it's my room temperature that affects the laptop because the weather is very hot at my place here..
