Also, info from nvidia is that there hasnt been an official non-beta driver launched since the 66.93s due to the fact that they want their next official release to be THE driver to use for SLI cards. apparently nvidia has been very aware of SLI owners' misgivings about the new technology and are seeking to greatly improve support by the next release.

The intention is to say "66.93 was just SLI in its beta stage, it was never the real thing" and to have a massive amount of support for various game profiles, some sort of auto profiling tool available, and several improvements to the load balancing in SLI as at many points in some games (farcry included) balancing is very skewed at the moment.

All of the recent beta releases in the 7x.xx series have slowly been improving SLI, and its hoped that by the time their official driver is ready for release, nobody will complain about it any more. The other two things being worked on apparently are 1. getting SM3.0 into common usage, and 2. stopping machines with "stolen" or as it has even been put in an australian magazine "Pirated" SLI from operating with recent high performance drivers, as some modders have been able to run newer drivers on these modded NF4U boards.
