How are the nvida vista drivers doing?

Have nvida fixed up the performance issues with vista yet? or is it still to early to upgrade to vista? also is 32 or 64 bit a better idea?

  1. Nvidia drivers for vista still need a bit of work.But being that Vista has only recently been released to the public in retail version,it may be a few more weeks before Nvidia gets their stuff together.They may also be waiting for sp1 for Vista to come out and fix some of the bugs in Vista.As I've heard that Vista still needs some work before it can become an ideal gaming platform."C'mon Microsoft,you promised us gamers that vista would be ideal for gaming".Alas,we must wait as usual.Oh ya,32bit is fine for now as there is very little in the way of software yet that uses 64bit processing.

  2. Well, gaming on Vista isn't great right now, so drivers do need some "major" work.
  3. My 8800GTS with the latest drivers for Vista (32 bit) are working fine for me on these games:
    -Eve (two instances... one on each monitor),
    -FEAR
    -Half-Life 2 and Counter-Strike Source

    I am not going to disagree per se, but my HP laptop does a fair job at gaming. Now given that it is new and I don't have a real "base line" to compare against its potential, you could easily be right. The GF 7600 does pretty well for being a midrange card in Lineage II and such.

    I really only see an upside to nVidia performance in the future. nVidia's drivers do always need work... damn higher overhead. :?
