Today TweakForce releases the Xtreme-G 163.71 BETA Driver for Windows Vista and Xp Operating Systems. Available in the Downloads Section. After extensive testing TF only recommends this driver for 7 series and below users. 8 series testers had lower benchmarks and fps results when using this driver compared to the XG163.69 while the 7 series users are experiencing huge gains in Image Quality and Performance. The driver is being released as a beta until we can pinpoint the issue with 8 series users or nVidia provides a fix in the next release.

I'm gonna try this as opposed to my stock 163.71's... See what happens and I'll edit this and post findings. I will however say the '69s were really bad for me, so I will test these despite popular opinion Smile


FEAR is up by about 15-20fps on my Average/Max. (benchmarks section)
CS:Source Is up around the 250fps mark (15fps better)

All my OpenGL games work good also, not that they are demanding but still. Smile Hope others like these, they are the best for me thus far.

@Ekirin: I have a 6 series card and it's running just fine here, except there are some minor problems with my OpenGL games, maybe I will pinpoint the problem in the near future.

I would say, give these a go! Smile

These are probably the best drivers for me so far, IQ is a bit better than stock and a slight performance increase.

Don't have a lot of benchmarks or games installed currently but ran a quick World in Conflict benchmark and gained 2 fps 44 vs 42 on max fps and 1 fps in average 28 vs 27. (made several runs).

Another Phenomenal driver! Makes the Forceware versions look lousy by comparison (and they were pretty good). Quick Benchmarks and a few comments:

The IQ on these are undeniably the BEST I've ever seen of any driver I've tried on this system - bar none! All the games I've tried look terrific - Tiger Woods 08 even runs correctly again without shader problems. Colors and textures are crisp and "clean" - the lighting and atmospheric effects in BioShock are taken to an entirely different level with these drivers (smoke, water, explosions, etc), and runs very smoothly. Even the desktop looks much better than before.....

That being said - I noticed just a few minor glitches - really just a small stutter, and only for a fraction of a second. It was interesting that they only seemed to occur on the first pass through of the benchmarks, or when first starting a level in Bioshock - after that, it was silky-smooth. I noticed that in the Benchies, the average frame-rates were higher, but the minimum FR was also lower...which is probably why I saw the minor glitches. No matter, these are MAGIC DRIVERS!!!

Definitely a keeper! If these are Betas, after Goz does his final, they should be a masterpiece....... I'm going to try these on the 6800 later when I get a chance.

Thanks again for another work of art GoZ!!!!! You 'Da Man!
Cool

Well the reason there labeled beta is because I was getting mixed feedback on them.

So I left them Beta

These are full XG and work fine I just need to get some more 8 series users for testing till I can get one( here soon)

So I say don't wait, run them and see how they go

Hmm I think colors feel very "warm" on this set, noticed it first on some avatars in another forum I use all the time that they seemed more colorful and lively and red looked more red than usual.

the color and IQ is about the same as xg163.67SE, and the color is a bit warmer.
in 3DMark 06 is got 11,101 on the first run, but had an average of 11,050
the performance is below bothxg163.67 and 162.01, but above xg162.5
i'll keep these for when i get around to playing bioshock.

GoZ I use the 8 series. Colors in D3d look good, OpenGL colors don't change much but still performs well. Performance is on par with the 163.67's *Non-SE* the SE one's didn't like my computer as much. Everything on these drivers feels very good thus far. Anything with more framerates without loss of IQ and performance is good in my book. I posted my FEAR benchmarks in the benchmarks section if anyone cares Smile
