I find it strange that, a old game (oblivion) made for old (dx9) generations cards for old OS, can run "slow" on the nextgen 2x faster in benchmarks dx10 cards running on the nextgen OS.
It just goes to show what driver optimisation can do for performance in games. nvidia have had several years now to perfect their XP drivers and squeeze every last bit out of their hardware, but with vista, that work is only just beginning! Im sure in a few months we will be seeing similar performance between the two OS's even with vista being a slightly more resource hungry incarnation.
I am waiting for dx10 games before i take the leap to vista, and things are looking hopeful!
I'm currently running the drivers that came on the Vista install disk for my 6600, so I may give the beta drivers when I get home (if I remember).
Installed these last night, and Sleep *still* doesn't work properly
Everything else seems to work better though
8800gtx non-sli here
I'll give these a go soon - Oblivion seemed to stutter now and then on my 7800GT in Vista Ultimate, whereas in XP it ran flawlessly. So hopefully they'll iron it all out.
Dual-booting XP and Vista here. Main OS still XP but I'll give 1.41 a try tonight. Let's see what they'll bring.
any news on new xp drivers for 8800 though?
Still no temp controlled fan on my 7900GS
yup, tried it couple days ago... 3dmark goes from 5500ish to 9000ish... so thats all good!
SupremeCommander still doesnt support SLI...... so im still stuck at 10FPS @1680x1050 - High when there's 1000 units on screen on the last mission lol
of course, changing it to Medium didnt help AT ALL, meaning it could be my CPU... oh well....
