Dox's Custom Forceware 180.44


Recommended Posts

Latest version of my optimised drivers out.

Based on WHQL candidate nvidia drivers.

Drivers are now packaged in a nice and easy streamlined installer.

Drivers are now hosted here and mirrored at filefront - no more download issues!


New version out for XP only. Fixed issue with Digital vibrance.

Use the "old" version of 180.44 if you have problems with this one

I tested this on a Asus F9Sg. specs are 12 inch wxga, 2.1 ghz c2d, 3 gig ram, 250 gig hd, 256 mb nvidia 9300m G.

The performance increase from this driver was huge. it was like ocing without the oc. truely awesome. only downside

is it made sleep not work when you close the lid. so it never wakes up :) I really wanted to keep these drivers too. sigh.
