Thanks.

I was wondering when they were going to release the next lot of drivers, it's been about 4 months now since the last lot!

I've had boatloads of trouble with every driver after 296.10 so that's what I still use for my GT555M. Might give these a go just for the giggles but I'm expecting trouble.

Working fine, as with previous beta drivers, tried Heaven benchmark....not much difference. Batman AC runs like crap, as with previous drivers, but all other games (that I've tried) are smooth going, running 2x GTX670 SLi.

Ah great.

17% improvement supposedly huh?

I'll redo the benchmarks I did on Crysis 2 a while back...

Although I'm currently using the 306.02 non-WHQL drivers...idk if I'll notice the same improvement as those people upgrading from the last WHQL version.

The latest drivers got rid of the weird lag I was getting in my games after leaving my system running for extended periods. So far so good.

The APP for my G15 keyboard now reads 4294967296% GPU utilization and that's just on the desktop! Could be the old version of afterburner I have though. Other than that I have been stable.

You wouldn't happen to be using a Lenovo Y570 by chance would you? Had the same problems, reverted back to whatever lenovo put on it, then had no problems at all with 301.42.
