So i installed vista 64 drivers for my Crosshair motherboard and my 8800 gt, and i noticed many features that where in the XP driver are now gone. Firstpacket, Teaming, Hardware Acceleration for internet, where are all of these functions? Are they not included for vista?
There are a lot of features that have been dropped or changed with Vista. The upcoming SP1 for Vista is supposed to help a lot, restoring some features and speeding things up in general. How much is a good question. At the same time, it should be kept in mind that with every major OS change, there have been a lot of changes in features and such, so it should be expected. This is one reason that so many people are dual booting or even putting Vista on a separate drive altogether, which is what I did.
It turns out the features where excluded from the vista driver, but i need to ask if someone has an alternative to the "Display Optimization Wizard" that came with the nvidia driver. It adjusted gamma, brightness, etc, and everything looks washed out and white without it.
