Which driver has a fully working feature set ?

Recommended Posts

Getting a lot of issues with drivers not working with some features.

If you guys can report back here with which driver has everything working as it should.

It will help other folk who are trying to make it work actually pick a driver where it does :)

So with which driver(s) does:

PhysX

Direct Compute

OpenCL

CUDA

all Work ?

GPUz can be found in our "Tools' section to check to see if these features are enabled.

Very frustrating NVIDIA harping on about so called features that are supposed to come with their GPU's but then their drivers go and disable them.

Just installed nVidia verde 197.16. All 4 GPU-Z "compute" features are checked at bottom.

seems to work well. but occasionally getting a spatter pattern around a window. didn't happen in Asus driver.

have a new Asus G51Jx-x2 with GTS 360. :) that nVidia has actually released a new driver. Not holding my breath they will actually continue as I truly think laptop makers want their hardware to have planned obsolescence.

I agree !

Everything is working fine with 197.16 !

Performance is also good and i can make custom resolutions with it again :-)

Very great driver for me on Win 7 x64 Enterprise and my 9500m GS

For those who get OpenCL not working in GPUz try this tool

Interesting, according to this tool, everything is working for me (CUDA, PhysX, OpenCL) using the latest mobile driver.

For my GPU (8600m GT) GPUZ reports OpenCL no, CUDA yes, PhysX no, and DirectCompute Yes, but this other tool reports everything working except PhysX.

Updated my driver

Before update

196.21: CUDA+DirectCompute (I have no PhysX support on my s***ty 8400M G)

After update

197.16: CUDA+OpenCL

DirectCompute was disabled somehow... Can't run DirectComputeBenchmark now... I'm not complaining, my card is too slow for any serious computation anyway...

BTW, Powermizer was disabled too... I have to use Powermizer manager tool to enable it again...

With Forceware 196.34, I have ALL enabled.

My problem is that Powermizeer does not work when using an external display (tested with DVI and DisplayPort). The GPU clockrate stays stuck at high speed (3D mode) even when the computer is idle.
