They cover a full spectrum all 32 bit and 64 bit windows. I have tested them on my system and here Is was I see right off the bat.

All and I mean all problems in the control panel are now fixed. digital V now works 100% and all missing TV full screen video options are now added and fixed. Nvidia PhysX has now been added to the Nvidia control panel. There testing stable in crysis and crysis warhead and showing a 3 FPS boost at least for me. Open GL 3.0 has now been added full time option (default ).


due to the open GL 3.0 added the furmark 1.4 will need to be upgraded before it will work. This will take time. All future mark tests are working fine.


3dmark06 showed no performance gain and no loss there a dead match.
Crysis and crysis warhead show clear improvements.

Turok using PhysX shows a 37 FPS gain and enhanced physics.

showing a small to large boost in game FPS on 14 other games. to much to post. No loss of any performance in any other game.

Riva tuner 2.11 is working flawless

added enhancements for far cry 2 and are recommended for best far cry 2 experience.
