This is interesting, these drivers supposedly allow this:

CUDA Updates
• Added support for 64‐bit video encoding.
• Added support to make all GPUs within an SLI group available for CUDA
applications to use.

Anybody get this to work yet?

Kevin

Those are two pretty significant new features--thanks for the heads-up! I'd test them myself, but I just recently went back to an earlier version after some problems, so I'll wait until it's out of beta.

Downloaded and installed beta driver. So far so good. I ran 3DMark Vantage afterwards and got a few extra points I didn't have before AND cooler gpu temps too. Instead of hovering around 60C max, it was more like 56C max during the benchmark.

There is also an option now to choose whether I want to run SLI or use one gpu for video and the other for PhysX. I don't think that was there before.

190 didn't resolve the awake problem at all. Back to 186.
