i think many would remember that :D . i never use it though since i was a bit lazy to upgrade my driver when it actually comes out. but even if i ended with the driver it will not going to harm my gpu back then since my gpu were using passive cooler from the start
run newer script
else if cardname == gtx680
run older script
any improvement is great, but it looks like a cheap move
does WHQL and BETA really that matter? idk why some people refusing beta drivers. maybe the word beta sway people away but from my personal experience there are times when things go wrong even with WHQL driver. in nvidia case some problem in that arise might be fix in a week or two then release as beta drivers. why not using the beta drivers if it actually fix the problem?
