They work for me. They just don't have Physx or HD audio with them. You have to install physx separately.

Supposedly these also work if you want to run a 2nd card with less than 32 cuda cores for Physx only but they don't work with my 9600gt.

Well my gpu got stuck in P0-state for far to long while browsing the web ("overheating" and unwanted extra noise), just like some old 280.xx and that was good enough for me to go back to 301.40.

I didnt bother testing its perf. as its a developer driver (highly beta) not meant for public anyway..

Leaked 301.40 dev is beta too, but imo its more polished then this, way more polished. :)


Imo the only thing that's special about 302.59driver is it has cuda 5.01



also its from r302_cuda-20 branch

301.40: r301_07-60

The cuda part doesn't even matter lol. If you have problems then roll back. I don't notice anything strange with these though.

Yea i know, i just wanted to show the info :)


Yep im already back to 301.40, well i guess they behave a little different on 600 series.. But still be careful, imo they're highly beta.

I've seen quite a few people experiencing various problems with it, some said they're missing optimizations found in 301.40, some can't start certain games, etc..

I tested the drivers with a few games before posting this. Seems to be their best driver yet,,,,, no problems.. Then I posted it.

Also there is new stuff in the nvpanel ...

new stuff like what?

I didnt see anything new compared to any 30x.xx driver.


edit: dont get me wrong im not here to turn people away from this driver. Its just that its highly beta developer driver and its not really meant for 24/7 daily usage.

Although it could be my gpu specific, that about P0-state (full 3d clock bug) & HW web browsing, since its custom build and it has a different voltage monitoring chip, compared to stock gpu.
