I'll be trying these tonight with win2k3 sp1 for AMD64 build 1159. I'm expecting much better results than with 52.14 and XP 1069.

I read somewhere the 64 bits via 4-1 hyperion drivers don't have agp support yet, is this true?

They didn't release a GART driver, but it's not necessary. The standard one that comes with Windows is perfectly fine.

I have had no luck installing build 1159, however. STOP error during setup with CnQ on. Lockup like in previous builds during device detection if it's off.

Nice update! I get about 20% higher scores in 3DMark03. I did notice a few little glitches.

In 3DMark03, you still have what I call the "Magic Wig" effect. In the Trolls Lair section of the benchmark, the woman's hair is about two seconds ahead of the rest of her. It looks like a magic flying wig! :D It's possible that it has nothing to do with the driver since it draws fine, but it's something to check.

In 3DMark2001SE b330, quite a few of the benchmarks have lightsource problems. The Nature section is particularly bad.

Other than that, haven't noticed any trouble. In particular, I played a few levels of American McGee's Alice, which uses OpenGL. I didn't notice any glitches at all. It was fast and smooth, so maybe the problems with 3DMark are either WoW64 or DirectX related.
