.13s seemed best for crysis .... .21s took a nosedive, I wonder if they fixed that...

:mad::mad: AND WHERE IS THE CRYSIS PATCH ALREADY :mad::mad:

I would post my rant on the inCrysis forums, but lately they've been banning anyone who says anything negative about Crytek

I don't know, maybe they just found some bug for Vista with 169.21, since these were only released for Vista.

I actually noticed quite a bit of difference from 169.02 to 169.21. I tried out 169.13 but it caused me more problems than fixes so i had gone back to .02. I'm tired of driver updates, i want a crysis patch. I havent even finished the first level because it pisses me off that SLI isnt working.

When you get around to crysis and start playing it a little more, it gets quite a bit more interesting imo, but seriously, I'd probably wait too if had spent a bunch of money on two video cards

With Crysis (full retail version) I've always had some improvement from having SLI turned on. Usually it was only around a 30% boost, but I'll take it. I finished the game, but I'll fire it up and see what these new drivers can do.

I have Crysis installed, but yet to play it. Waiting for the "wonder patch".

Well these drivers caused instability in UT3. It crashes pretty quickly now. I can't hardly get through a single match without the damn thing crashing to the desktop.

Did you try the 169.13's? Many when back to them.

No I haven't. I had the 169.12's and a few days after I loaded those the 13's came out followed by 21's and I didn't feel like updating as I wasn't having any issues. Then the 169.25s came out and I loaded them. Performance is certainly up but the stability in UT3 sucks. For COD4 no problems.

Not sure if it was the 169.25's or SP1 RC1 or alittle of both, but I got a crash on UT2004 I'd never gotten before.

SP1 RC1 was nothing but trouble for me. It killed a Vista install, actually... couldn't bring it back with any of the usual restore crap.

These drivers seemed to fix the issues in CoD4 where some objects aren't lighted correctly (unless it was the latest patch that fixed that issue?)
