why not read one post above this one. it's bad enough nobody can seem to find solutions on their own...they can't even the thread they are posting in???
Lol chill out, I did read it. You never mentioned anything about it being more compatible, and when I went to download it it was very slow so I just went with the official one.

Can anyone post some videos with the fraps counters with these new drivers?

So fraps running (but not recording. just showing yellow fps counter) and then shot from an iphone or something, and then upload it to youtube! thats the best way to gauge gaming performance because fraps recording kills it.


I would love to see the performance in games like at 1080p resolution (retina native is unreasonable with modern games.. even for 650m);

Guild Wars 2
Battlefield 3
Crysis 2


thank you! (im someone who is on the fence about getting a retina MBP.) there has been lots of hypes about these drivers. they didnt improve for me:(

I'm using Win 7 and also received the "No compatible hardware found." error. I'd love to use this though.


Just for future reference. While using Bootcamp, what is the best way to know if there are drivers updates available for your Mac hardware. Is it the Apple Software Update program?

Did you download the driver from post #6 w the modded .ini file? Worked fine for me.

Played BF3 for a few hrs earlier today.

I play League of Legends. Before it was only playable at 1680x1050. Now i can play full native resolution 2880x1800 no worries. 60 frames per second.

Also Battlefield 3 has improved dramatically
Forizzle? The 650M has been amazing for me on GTA 4, Just Cause 2 and Portal 2. If it gets even better then that's just icing. I'll try the modified driver now.

With any luck, Nvidia will have some actual, non-beta, drivers out by the end of the year.

Would love to know if it improves GW2's performance, but I wont hold my breath, as its poor performance is mainly down to poor optimisiation.

That's weird, I also play LoL and I was able to get 60 fps at max resolution with everything in high but no shadows (I don't like shadows :p). I'll try some other games later.
