a load of smeg?

I hate it. It makes everything far too many clicks away and generally feels like a lot more work just to get at the controls I want. Were they trying to emulate the ATi Control Centre?

Admittedly I have not tried the new drivers yet which supposedly have an updated version of it.

What does everyone else think? I've been meaning to get this off my chest ever since they were first introduced but I kept forgetting to mention it :dead:

Unless your using the Vista drivers you do have the option to use the classic control panel. Simply go View>Use Classic NVIDIA Control Panel. This option is not present in the drivers for Vista, well at least it wasn't the last time I ran Vista about a month-month and a half ago.

This is why I like NVIDIA better, at least they give us the option.

The slightly improved style from today is slightly better than what was there, but still horrible and of no real benefit taking it out of the advanced section it was in.

ATI's Catalyst control center is really nice though.

i've not tried the lastest one but the "new" nvidia control panel sucks... too flashy and less straightforward than the classic..

i use it just cos profiles don't work with the classic view in my driver version

Eh, CCC has only been really nice over the last couple of releases.

Previously it was crap.

I just like the fact that the previews are better and the damn thing loads in the blink of an eye, rather than half an hour like before.

Saz is right. But, with that said, CCC is nice (now); better than Nvidia's offering.

try using http://www.nhancer.com/ it offers more options than the nvidia control panel, and it is a lot more simplified

I second this, for game profile and global driver quality settings this is a much faster and more organized way to go about changing settings. Unfortunatly if you need to change any of the many other settings the Nvidia Control Panels covers you will have to deal with it. :mad:


I'm hot linking the above image, so it may or may not show up. Its taken from Nhancers home page.

Yup I found it weird at first but yeah you can switch back if you like. Im using it at the moment though.
If the poll had an option for 'doesnt really bother' me then that would be my choice but I can see the point of the thread starter liking the old view. :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
