I was not kidding.
I really was expecting more. I was thinking that they were gonna release a super driver like the 10.3's to combat the invisible gtx590.

Hmmm, usually minimum scores improves when uniengine is run the second time around.

That's from my experience.

Very true. 100%. You can't bench Unigine Heaven unless you test them after the first run. The same with Crysis 1. After the 1st loop, the minimums rise.

Semi-fresh OS with 11.2 on it. Downloaded the preview 11.4s, BSOD during installation (not pointing at anything, IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL).. Restart, desktop all messed up. Tried to install again, restarted. Looks OK now. Let me run a test or two.

EDIT: Tried Heaven, no change. As long as it works, I'm cool. Installed mostly for the DA2 improvements.

That's actually pretty damn good. 80% boost to min FPS, seems like they fixed something major.

That seems pretty big... will this work the same way for say.... 5870 users?
or is this just for ppl with 6xxx cards that use the new arch?

If they do have a driver release to combat the 590 it will affect all of the 6900s, so why not wait until the perfect time to spoil Nvidia's thunder across the entire high end. Since I'm stuck with the 5850 for a while I'm just happy they fixed a Dragon Age 2 bug before I encountered it.

Lucky you. Dragon Age 2 on DX11 high settings is unplayable with nvidia hardware currently. Their drivers are hosed. :(

I have 11.2's installed right now. Is there any reason to update to the 11.4's ? I have zero problems with the 11.2's.

Does the control panel look the same ?

How do you combat a card you can't see.

Oh, and come back when the 460 doesn't have compatibility issues.
