Hi guys,

Which drivers version is best for crunching GPUGrid WUs, 331.82?

I'm presently using 2x GTX-670.

Thanks in advance.

According to Matt, one of the Admins, in order to run the newest cuda60 tasks:
"Needs to be 334.21 or later

Cuda 6.0 tasks are not faster than the Cuda 5.5 tasks, so only the CC5.0 cards need the latest driver.
For the fastest cards (GTX 780, GTX 780 Ti, GTX Titan, GTX Titan Black) it's not recommended to use the latest driver under Windows (especially under Windows XP), as these drivers don't use a full CPU thread to feed the GPU, which reduces their performance.
