The version number did change though, these are 270.61 and the beta's were 270.51.

Also, the driver files are dated 4/8/11, WHQL cat is 4/15/11.

Not the same set. These seem pretty good so far. They are good in WoW, DA2 and Crysis 2.

Same for me also. I'm using 2 GTX580s in SLI Surround. These drivers and the Betas before it make Crysis 2 unplayable.

Here is Crysis 2 SLI and Tri SLI Profile Fix. I played with values and this is flicker free and scales awesome. I tested with older official drivers and it worked. Should be fine with these as well.

Profile "Crysis 2"
ShowOn GeForce
ProfileType Application
Executable "crysis2.exe"
Executable "crysis2demo.exe"
Setting ID_0x00a06946 = 0x000240f5
Setting ID_0x1033cec1 = 0x00000003
Setting ID_0x1033cec2 = 0x00000002
Setting ID_0x1033dcd2 = 0x00000004
Setting ID_0x1033dcd3 = 0x00000004
Setting ID_0x1095def8 = 0x02506405

You should report the bug to NVIDIA and include this as a fix for the issue.
