Nvidia’s latest Geforce drivers, now in version 196.21, might bring SLI and multi-GPU support to certain games but it seems to have brought another, somewhat unexpected gift from the company – disabled overclocking.

So, overclocking software such as RivaTuner V2.24C, EVGA Precision V1.9.0 and similar all had trouble in handling core, shader or memory clocks during overclocking.

Nvidia says that this is a bug that will be resolved in a timely fashion, but until then we’d advise overclockers to steer clear of the “new and improved” driver.
