General comments

Hey guys :) I am back with hybrid SLI and hyrbid graphics support. Drivers are based on Nvidia's notebook whql. Too many unnesecarry problems with this driver so I decided to have a go. Powermizer was disabled for some notebooks by Nvidia but I have enabled it for all models. The driver will install regardless of your make or model. I have added support for all hybrid SLI and hybrid graphics users. Hybrid SLI confirmed to work and Hybrd graphics confirmed to work.

Hybrid graphics option will also install the latest intel driver. Control panel should install for those that had problems with original. The directX and OpenGL tweaks has been re-done and confirmed by most beta testers that they slightly improve performance with no IQ loss over the original 185.85. Thanks to the beta testers and Nautis who helped make this happen.

I thought china has strict internet filtering, maybe thats why you can't download the file?

Dox, I'm currently using your customised 182.05 drivers on my dell xps M1730 -8800m GTX's. Going to give these news ones a try now, if they can perform as well the driver I'm using currently, and allow powermiser to work, i'll be a happy chappy :)

Keep up the good work, it is appreciated!

Is there a way to add desktop support? I always used DOX drivers because they were always better than nvidia's. Less stuttering and better fps.

I signed in just to make this post :)

I have 8800 GTS 512 SLI.

Couldn't help trying this with my quadro FX1600M - about the same performance as with the default 185.85 driver.

Yeah in the 3d marks in my own testing I dropped some points but in real world tests I gain about 1-5 fps depending on the game.

Wow, thank you Dox!

It works great on my Dell XPS 13 Hybrid SLI 9200+9400 running Vista x64. I finally reached above 4000 on 3DMark06 (4067 @ 1024x768)

Keep up the good work!

Thanks Dox for your new release. Im glad you're back :)

When I tried to install it, I get a "no compatible hardware found" message. Im using a 8400M G. I already checked the inf, and it's there. Any clues why it isn't working?

The non-dox 185.85 are working.

There is no 9800M GS supported accordingly your list. Will these drivers work with a msi gt627?

So far a pretty much perfect driver, only nitpick is when I unplug the laptop and plug it back in it doesn't automatically re-enable both GPUs, I have to click the tray icon and do it manually.

Otherwise the notebook starts up with both GPUs enabled like it should, doesn't freeze up at the login screen and cause the screen to flicker like the other modded drivers, and kicks to the integrated GPU when I unplug it with ease.

EDIT: I lied, ignore the nitpick, it wasn't working because I have WMP open. Awesome!

cool stuff, now all there is to perfect is hybrid graphics.

your "9800M GS" is actually a downclocked 9800M GTS, the drivers will install on your system but will be called a "9800M GTS".

I don't see much performance increase between 185.85 dox and 185.85, BUT... these drivers run a few degrees cooler! Thx dox!

Thank you Dox!...i love your drivers...regards from Argentina...

:)

Pd:Can someone use rivatuner for overclock with these drivers?,rivatuner says to me that it does not detect it,

but it must be because this one based on a new version drivers of nvidia and it does not recognize it still.

Sorry for my english,jaj...
