Default Nvidia ForceWare 169.13 driver released, awaits Crysis patch

A new driver is always a nice thing especially when it brings performance improvements in your favourite games. Unfortunately not all such good intentions go unpunished so it seems the newest beta drive from the Green Goblin, the ForceWare 169.13 got shot in the foot. This release comes with support for GeForce 6, 7 and 8 series cards and features an updated SLI profile for Crysis, profile that should bring better performance but only the patched version of Crytek's game. A patch for Crysis hasn't been released yet so you may not need to jump in and download it. Unless you want to experiment.

To download the ForceWare 169.13 beta drivers from our uber-fast servers point and click on the links below:

I'm getting 30-40 running "high" @ 1920x1200. The very high hack knocked me down to 18 It made my video card sad. I need to install it on the vista partion and see if the machine seeing all 4gb of system and 1gb of video memory helps any.

Yea...I would like to see better performance from Crysis w/ SLI. DX10 is a graphics hog to say the least.
