    Does anyone know which are the newest drivers for the Nvidia cards, i know 66.93 is the official driver, but are there any beta drivers out there that could improve performance?

    If you go to there site they have a link to the beta drivers. Not sure if they are better in performance then the offical. They are beta so i wouldnt really use them as of yet. Why is there a slow performance or something?

    www.nzone.com is the latest official beta releases...for leaks look at www.nvnews.net

    I'm running the 67.66 from nzone and have tried others from nvnews.net...best stability and everything else with the 67.66

    Missed 71.81, using 71.83 but they are tester-nda-signed so I can't share them.
    A friend at NVIDIA let me know that these really should have been released to the public on nvidia.com but he doesn't know what the hold up is.

    I don't think they will be WHQL signed when they are released, but then that could explain a holdup as testing takes a few days (it seems?)

    Anyway, will be nice to see some newer official drivers.
    74.xx are fake and 75.xx will be beta tested (don't know if publically or privately) im March and will be built on the .net 2.0 framework so start visioning NVIDIA (ala ATI) Control Center. (I think that was nda ... oops)

    75.90's are out. there's the regular leaked ones, and then there's the Xtreme G 75.90 tweaked leaked drivers. didn't install the Xtreme G ones yet.
