Nice. Still no fix for the TDR problems. No OpenCL 1.1 then. Typical nVidia drivers here. Work on the selling features Like PhysX and Ambient Occlusion, skip the important fixes. Like always, too many people have the idea that nVidia drivers are great and will completely ignore the driver bugs, sweeping them under the carpet.

It's sad that many think the TDR problem is new. This has been going on for ages. It's just more common now.

Quoting Mr. Awesome:
Nice. ...

If you look around and see how after every game amd releasing a,b and other alphabetically called so called "performance" drivers and think that they good..good luck with that
Nv drivers years ahead,even after they cut driver dev team,personally i have no problem with any TDR you mentioned here - must be user specific ;)
Oh,and what a way to have good FPS in new Batman,"sadly" amd can have that :D

Straight from nVidia's own website. Notice part of the title --- NVidia is ignoring us ---

Funny, I just realized that I haven't had a TDR problem since I upgraded my 9600 GT to a 5770. The TDRs in my GTX 460 didn't last too long though. That card fried after four months like so many of those first generation Fermi products.

Is there any word if Skyrim SLI problems have been fixed with older cards?
