NVIDIA Shelves 196.75 Driver

Engadget is reporting that NVIDIA has temporarily pulled it’s 196.75 driver after reports of slow FPS framerates, bad performance and overheated chips. Apparently this is due to a problem with how the update handles the automated fan controller. In some cases, the video card died altogether.

It is recommended that this update is avoided until NVIDIA fixes the problem.
