Exclamation Nvidia driver 77.77

"Version: 77.77
Release Date: August 11, 2005
WHQL Certified

Release Highlights:

Support for GeForce 7800 GT
SLI support for GeForce 6600 and GeForce 6600 LE
New SLI rendering mode (SLI Antialiasing) for increased antialiasing performance
Broader SLI optimizations and validation for the latest games
Resolved SLI Antialiasing issues with some applications and generating screen shots. For a full list of other issues resolved, please view the driver release notes.
Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0c and OpenGL® 2.0 support"

Nvidia launched on 11 August these drivers. Did anyone try them? I am downloading them now. Maybe even upload them once they are on my work rig.

Chris

Yeap, weve had them for a while. In fact, tweaksrus have already released an Xtreme-G version of the several weeks ago. Check AOA files :_)

The only difference between these and the 77.76s is some SLI handling on some cards, 6600s and 6600LEs from memory. If two Nvidia drivers are only 1 or 2 numbers apart, they are the same driver, only a bugfix release.

They are no faster or better than the 77.76s.
