      These drivers run UT3 flawlessly in Windows 7. Feels as smooth as WinXP running the graphics maxed. Glad to get rid of the last WHQL driver where you had to run the screen percentage at 98% (rescaling lowered the image quality) and the last stable WHQL's didn't run UT3 exactly at the smoothness level I was used to with WinXP/older drivers. These drivers have great image quality, stability, and performance for UT3 here in Win7. They're win-win-win.

          Please note: These are only for high end gaming Notebooks, or gaming laptops not desktop PCs! They are all still in Beta as well! Install them at your own risk!

          Though many users claim these drivers help out a lot more then the old BIOS method of support from the vender's. IE many report a jump in FPS in games like UT3/Crysis Warhead of 10-20 Extra FPS then they got before the installed these drivers.

            Hmmm - these drivers seem to crash my PC once a game map loads... (8800gt, quad core)

              I'm running an 8800GT and a Q6600 quad (no overclocking on either) and it's perfectly fine.

                I said in my post that the drivers I posted are only for Notebook PCs not Desktop PCs.

                Also new official Drivers for all:

                http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

                Version Number 182.06 includes Ut3 fix, and boosts Half Life 2, Left For dead, Fallout 3, FEAR 2: Project Origin, and last but not least Race Driver: GRID Performance on high settings with full AA.

                I recommend downloading the new WHQL version drivers instead as these are not total unneeded.

                  I'm sorry but looking thru the release notes, I see the benefits for all the other games but I see no reference to UT3. Where do you see this?

                      It was included in the patch from Beta release number 182.05 Beta that had the fix, and now that it's in WHQL Nvidia stuck it in. I can play all the Warfare maps and use portals without crashes for as along as I wan't

                            My god..

                            There was a time when you didn't have to thank the hardware manufacturers for having written a driver that actually works, you know.

                                The latest drivers for Windows 7 give me smoother frame rates on Warfare full servers.
