Hate to disappoint you, but they're not. :(

Just ran a quick FC bench through the same demo as MaxPower. 1600x1200, 2xAA, 4x Trilinear AF (optimizations on), all options on high except for water (ultra) and lighting (very). Far Cry 1.1 patch was installed but the GeForce FX optimizations were removed.

Benched right in at about 38.5 fps at these settings on these drivers. Can't really compare to the 61.34 set as I didn't run any benches with FC on them. I can say that IQ is absolutely phenominal with these drivers.

The download speed is awful from the link posted. Makes my broadband seem like 28.8. Are they worth it?

Thanks Sat, healthy average there I'd say. I updated my earlier post with 61.45 @1600x1200 (http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?p=347102#post347102)...very little drop from 1024 to 1600

Max FPS seems to drop though, looking at your results, though min FPS stays around the same level, or slight drop.

Yes, good point. I was focusing more on the MIN...yes, huge drop at MAX and ~10-12fps drop on AVG

EDIT: Going to run R300 path now

funny, I downloaded the drives and their done for me now, 38 KB/s isn't so bad, though the speed eventually went down to 11KB/s at the end.

put them one after each other the NV path vs R300 path on your post for easier comparison please?

and judging by the results max FPS seems reduced by 2 FPS on the R300 path I think...
