I've just made a performance enhanced INF, this is for benchmarking or where quality isn't an issue.

These are my own settings I have stolen no one elses.

Install these as normal, they shouldn't require any more input.

Also as a first I've added Quadro tweaks to the INF, they will only be used when a quadro is installed (ie any other GPU won't install those settings)

This should enable some features that Quadro's have disabled by default.

I 'd be very interested in how you guys get on, even if these settings are crap let me know.

I might keep them going, or expand to Quality as well.

To get the Performance INF headback to the top of this thread and links can be found there, for both 32 and 64 bit.

Enjoy :)

What kind of tweaks are in the performance INF?

Is the Quality loss noticeable?

FYI,

Your performance INF completely locked up and restarts my PC when attempting to install the driver.

My INF too fast for your laptop :)

OK must go and investigate.

I'm using nVidia documented tweaks, so they shouldn't be the problem :)

So what are the Quadro tweaks? What do they do?

[Quadro_Tweaks]HKR,, OGL_AALineGamma,              %REG_DWORD,    0x23

HKR,, OGL_EnableOverlaySupport,      %REG_DWORD,    0x1

HKR,, OGL_EnableSingleBackDepthBuffer,%REG_DWORD,    0x1

HKR,, OGL_MultisampleCompatibility,  %REG_DWORD,    0x1

Nothing too dratic but should help some out.

These features are off by default.

Any clue as to why my system melted down with the INF?

Hmmm, this is harder than I thought.

Just spent 2 hours trying tweaks, rebooting, more trying, booting...

I found 1 problem with a setting but still get a no boot with another.

I'll have to try and find this problem next, takes ages to narrow it down to a single tweak.

Curse nVidia, I'm using their own performance tweaks, trust them not to work :)

I 'll get back here later tonight after more testing, this is my first attempt at my own tweaks.

I don't want to just copy others work and have no idea what the actual tweaks do.

I hope to have this sorted very soon :)

Just noticed that there isn't any "nvcplui.exe" located within this driver set.

Yes, noticed this as well, 81.82 was probably not suposed to be leaked.

DON'T try and run that file from 81.82 as errors (version mismatch) occur.

Cool, looking forward to the new INF.

Done, many, many ,many tests and reboots later.

I have taken out the culprits

The INFs have been uploaded (see 2nd post for links)

Let me know how you get on, is there any performance gain ?

This will be a work in progress, but good to get feedback (good and bad)

I'm a curious cat, what tweaks have been implemented?

He describes each tweak right in the inf -- about halfway down. Very handy!

One that might not be clear is the "FlipBuffering" switch. This controls the number of frames ahead D3D will render. (Setting it to 2 will render two frames ahead, etc.)

Nice work Pieter!

Pieter, any idee why this driver and the 81.82 doesnt work for my notebook?

After the reboot and the login screen of windows my screen stays black

OpenGL does not work with the performance INF, completely locks up and restarts my computer.

Maier, look about halfway down the inf and you'll find a line you can enable to fix the black screen on reboot problem.

Guest, yes, the standard inf has been modified as well. This thread is for both.

I may need to shift the performance side of things to somewhere else.

Or maybe give up on it as I'm wasting an awful lot of time on and let the other "performance enhancing' sites do this.

I'll have a wee think.

terror_adagio, bugger this is where the biggest gains would have been.

It looks like the tweaks are no longer valid for the 80's series :)

I'll have a play with this as I get time, I still have some tricks up my sleeve.

Well After trying the first Performace inf and having it fail (Black screen lock-up) I tried the second one (your update after my first post) and that one doesn't work either (but I did get farther).

The main problem is when I right mouse click on the desktop and go to the "NVIDIA display > Laptop display" to bring up the control panel; It hits the HD a bit and then blue screens

I tried using your normal INF with only the Quadro mods added in, that blue screened. Then I just did the Performance INF with the quadro mods removed - but that blue screened as well.

Thank you for all the time spent on the Performance and Quadro mods - I appreciate all the work you have put into this so far.
