nVidia 185.85 GeForce Drivers Suck

Postby augie » Wed May 20, 2009 8:04 pm

They started out nice but since last night the 353 pointers which normally give me 5.7K PPD went down to 1.6K PPD and continued into today. :shocked: I subsequently reverted to the 181.20 CUDA drivers and all is well for now. (Crosses fingers) Oh, this is Vista BTW. Hopefully my PPD will pick up a bit today.:)

I went back to 181.72 myself, the newer driver kept crashing and recovering :bashhead

Well, so far so good. I've got a pair of 353's blasting through right now for a total of 11.7K PPD! ^*^ I've never seen that high of a production before though I'm sure it's happened before, especially the two 3K plus runs I had early this AM. :blink Of course it won't last but it was nice to see. :yesnod: From now on, I'm sticking to CUDA drivers only.
