New Nvidia Beta Driver Works Well

Recommended Posts

NVidia sent me an email that talked about a new Beta driver. I installed it and it works quite well. Very stable and good frames. Perhaps it might help with the "Vertical lines" some of us are seeing in the sim. Time will tell.The beta driver is version 180.84. Check it out on NVidia's site.Stan

Yes they do. I installed the new 180.84 beta on a fresh Vista 64/SP2 beta last week. FS9 and FSX are running fine with these new drivers. As many others have found out for some reason they cause a complete system lockup with Windows XP/32 bit with the first re-boot after install. I found this out the hard way after installing them on a fresh XP/Pro SP3 reformat. This is first time I have experienced any significant problems with an Nvidia beta driver.
