Default Nvidia Forceware 186.08 vs 185.85 Performance Comparison

Just recently, a new beta driver for Nvidia was released, Forceware 186.08. It adds support for ambient occlusion, a new control panel feature for those looking for enhanced 3D gaming realism.

We see little improvement in 3DMark Vantage, Crysis Warhead, Far Cry 2 but quite an improvement in FPS of Crysis Warhead 2560 x 1600 4xAA. The new driver 186.08 also showed some improvement in Mirror's Edge, Left for Dead and Call of Duty: World at War.

Somewhat odd, but some unexplained "driver stopped responding" problems ceased when I installed the 186.08 drivers for Windows 7 64bit. Been completely smooth since I first installed them.
