New ESA 6.03 doesn't list 650i chipset support

Is there a reason the new ESA 6.03 software does not list support for 650i chipset in the 630?

Did ESA 6.02 list the 650i chipset as supported?

 

If I recall, the XPS 630 has a hybrid 650i chipset that supports ESA.

Hey Chris how did you install the new ESA 6.03. Did you just install it over the old ones or did you uninstall everything first then install the new one. I'm using the 6.02 and I have no problems so I'm debating to install it.

 

Thanks

dirtykurt,

I removed all ESA software and then installed 6.03. I also was not having issues with 6.02 but figured I should try the 3s anyway.

 I installed over what was there, one driver set would not install saying it was as new, rebooted. Running good here, profile editing works now, and now see the ability to download new driver updates ... and these come in x64 format! Smiley Very Happy Something that I am still waiting for Dell to update on their Drivers & Downloads page.

Where did you guys find 6.03. When I go to Nvidia's website it lists 6.02

 

 

Edit: I found it, but not on Nvidia's website. Why is that?

Some people on the My630i.com forums are reporting that they lose the ability to control their GPU fans after installing ESA 6.03 :

Yeah Chris I have no problems with 6.02 either I think I might stay with them untill I need to update them. Like the old saying if it aint broken don't touch it. Plus I really don't see anything new in the new one anyways that I need.
