Dox 185.85


Recommended Posts

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.

An extremely awesome release Dox. This release should mark a milestone, as it supports many notebooks that are often overlooked, including some SLI, Hybrid Graphics, & Hybrid SLI. It covers an impressive range of Nvidia notebook chipsets. I am sure many users will be unable to recognize the undertaking that went into a release like this one, but there are many of us who have been eagerly awaiting something like this.

Make sure to choose "Hybrid Graphics" for the following notebooks:

- Sony VAIO Z (Nvidia GeForce 9300M GS & Intel GMA 4500MHD)

- Fujitsu Siemens Amilo XI 3650 (Nvidia GeForce 9600M GT & Intel GMA 4500MHD)

- BenQ Joybook S42 (Nvidia GeForce 9600M GT & Intel GMA 4500MHD)

- Asus N10J (Nvidia GeForce 9300M GS & Intel GMA 4500MHD)

A special note for BenQ Joybook S42: These are the first hybrid graphics drivers to support Vista/Win7 64bit for your notebook. (something BenQ said couldn't be done)

Let the revolution begin :)

I'll have a look at it later,

Is it Hybrid graphics or Hybrid SLI?

it is VERY important to know which one it is.

Works a charm on my machine, playing CoD4 at native resolution (1280x800) on my 8400m GS, can't argue with that!

The guy who makes rivatuner will have to update his software to be compatible with the latest releases.

Not the other way round :)

I bow my head to you good sir. I just gave up on your 182.05 drivers a couple days ago because I needed some fixes and optimizations in the new drivers and was sad to see your drivers off my computer. I have enjoyed the 185.85 vanilla so much and now that you have done your wonderful work on them I know they are going to be amazing.

Thanks again!!

I installed it on a 2.8Ghz Unibody MacBook Pro with the 9400m and 9600m GT. Installs fine and shows only the 9600m in the computer, but when you load up a game, even though it doesn't see the 9400m, it uses the 9400m for games.

I installed the hybrid sli driver. Gonna go experiment!
