Remember how we used to whine like 1-2 months ago when there was a lack of new drivers? =D

This driver disabled Physx, whereas 197.41 re-enabled it.

Ask yourself, have you ACTUALLY USED PhysX on that 8600M GS?

I personally don't care about PhysX anymore since it's unlikely my card can handle it in new games.

Weird. It doesn't work for me with either.

Performance is pretty much like 197.16.

I hate the fact that they find a flash (always) and mpc bug in the drivers, they fix it for the desktops right away but it can take months to fix for notebooks. In 197.16 if you load a second piece of flash content, any flash video your watching goes stuttery. In MPC unless your using Haali don't even bother playing a video and that also disables MPC's up conversion. WTF, seriously! I'm presuming that since 197.45 was released right after 197.44 with notes of Flash and MPC fixes these are the same bugs they are referring to, come one NV flash 10.1 is right around the corner.

My friend has been having a lot of trouble with watching any Flash related material on websites. random sites and youtube. Some seem to work fine and most of them will always stutter really badly or lag. Their internet connection is super fast too and the videos load fully within a few secs. So it must be something else ey. The hdd light thrashes a lot too sometimes. 6gb of ram though.

His been trying everything to try and fix it.

So its definitely a Nvidia driver problem ey?

If so that would be good to know and hopefully they take notice and fix it up soon.

SO does this 197.44 driver version fix the flash issues and bugs?

Cheers.

This. Which means it's quite good. Overall these drivers are a lot like 197.16. I haven't had any issues yet, everything seems to work fine so far.
