FIXES: - Fixes an intermittent non-maskable interrupt (NMI) memory parity error that may occur during Windows startup on the HP Workstation xw4300 if the /3gb boot option is used. - Fixes an intermittent "blue-screen" system crash (stop error 0xEA) that may occur while playing streaming video in Microsoft Windows Media Player 9.0. - Fixes an intermittent "blue-screen" system crash (stop error 0xA) that may occur when resuming from Standby mode on workstations with two NVIDIA Quadro NVS 285 Video Cards installed. - Fixes missing images or a spontaneous system reboot that may occur when using many very large textures. - Fixes an application crash in Unigraphics NX4 when real-time rendering and shadows are used together. - Fixes an issue, which may occur while running multiple OpenGL applications simultaneously on Scalable Link Interconnect (SLI) configurations, where the workstation stops responding (hangs) or generates an intermittent stop error. - Fixes severe flashing that may occur on SLI configurations that are executing a non-stereo OpenGL application immediately after using a stereo OpenGL application. - Fixes slow OpenGL performance that may occur after starting an OpenGL stereo application 5 to 10 times. - Fixes very slow performance that may occur when using two NVIDIA Quadro FX 5500 Video Cards and four displays on HP xw8400 Workstations.
