he claims that these are QuadroFX drivers only therefore keep that in mind when d/l.

hmm,

why do I get the feeling that SOMEBODY will modify an .inf file so it can be used with all cards ;)

yeah it might happen although i doubt it...
the drivers were optimized for QuadroFX cards therefore we would probably see horrible peformance on non-QuadroFX cards...

The drivers already support all cards. Running them now on my work GF3TI200. Color is very vibrant.. did a quick check of CS to get it back at 100hz with Rivatuner, and they work fine.

Will be playing a lan match at luchtime, I'll report back on them again later.

Soo far they are good.

I downloaded them from guru3d.com btw.

Thanks

Driver appears to work fine.

Performance:
Lower UT2003
Lower 3dMark2001
Lower 3dMark2003
Lower GunMetal2 Bench

Small performance drop all round on GeforceFX. Nature scene in 3dMark2003 crawls.

Edit: Slowest driver since 44.67 and AF still doesn't work for me. (Hasn't since earlier 44.x)

Can anyone else confirm this?

And, in UT2003, can you take a screenshot of something with "firstcoloredmip 1" turned on?

UT2003, Trilinear + Ansio Filtering...

Well that ain't right.

Looks like the windowed mode screwed it up.

Nope, just double checked. Looks identical full screen. I only windowed it to snap a smaller image in a hurry.

you sure you did firstcoloredmip 1 when you did that? that's what it looks like when you do firstcoloredmip 0 (or at least it was on mine) .

Yes. The reason we do 'firstcolordmip 1' and not 0, is because 0 is the highest res mip, and the ONLY mip for interface textures. If we color from 0, the HUD and menus are useless. In my screenshot, if I had tilted my head down a little more, you would see some uncolored texture for the highest res mip.
I also tried turning off trilinear, and ALL the color blending disappeared. I also tried turning off Ansio and that has no effect, on, off, app, 2x, 8x etc.

Baron.. are you insuinating that these benchys are close to Dets+Anti-Detector Scripts?

I'm just curious to the respond you provided

The Baron
07-25-03, 03:18 PM
yes... a 33% drop in Nature and a smaller drop in Dragothic came out in Antidetect...

DUDE.

Can anyone else confirm this?!

Wow, what a drop these gave me, Asus V9280 S TI4200-8x in 3dMark 2001 went from 10,865 with 43.45A from Asus to 9980 with these 45.20's. Not what I was looking for. Colin Mcrae 3 likes to lag on me now always when entering a sharp corner with lots of scenery changing. Haven't test any other games yet. These suck for my system any way. :)

Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I also had huge hits in the nature segment of 3dmark2k1, forgot to save the results cause I was mad but I usually have about 65-70 fps (No FSAA or AF) in the Nature segment but got dropped to 45-50 fps with the 45.20 dets. Sucky! :mad:

Its about time that the cheats are gone. Now we don't have to find out if the benched numbers are right or infrated any more.:)

that would suck if there was an asio bug still, but i will have gained a little bit of respect for nvidia IF they did what we think they did.
