New nVidia Drivers for GTAIV (and other games):

The version 185.20 is now available:
ForceWare 185.20 XP (32-bit)
ForceWare 185.20 XP (64-bit )
ForceWare 185.20 Vista (32-bit )
ForceWare 185.20 Vista (64-bit )

Edit: It also has a new feature at the nVidia Control Panel which is Ambient Occlusion. Here's a before and after screen:
EFFECT OFF:


EFFECT ON:

I guess this is like DX10.

Damn, there is a mega difference in those two pictures. Crysis only probably. Really doubt Nvidia came up with a magic bullet solution to shitty graphics in games

But I just found out that Ambient Occlusion only works with Vista because on my XP there's nothing

Jesus, the Ambient Occlusion doesn't work on all the games. But the improvement in the rendering is massive, scenes look much more serene now

Definitely a step in the right direction

cool thanks for the driver notification, I will give them a try

I wonder why I'm not seeing driver updates on Nvidia's site lately, the last couple I got have been from other places.

Edit: I just tested these on GTA4, no difference in performance still =(

If not on Nvidia's site, they are more than likely unofficial modified drivers, but they work, no issues with them that I seen
