a new set of Forceware Drivers have leaked in the shape of 66.70 for Windows 2000/XP!

Labeled as 66.70 and dated 09/16/2004, we have no word on what they do better than previous drivers, yet.

Dammit, does that mean my ultra is already redundant ? :p

For those needing modded INFs, laptops only in this case as all Desktops and some new GPUs as above are supported with this driver.
I've uploaded the INFs and in an hour, a replacked (6.4MB) driver will be ready for download.


Enjoy

Yes. :p

I just downloaded these drivers but have not installed yet.
I'm going to wait for some feedback first. ;)

Need benchmarks!! :)

I dont give a damn about Benchmarks !! What about the IQ FSAA and shimmer issue ??? Is more important to me than 200 points more in Benchmarks ;)

3DMark93 score increased by 71 points compared to the 65.62 drivers.

12404 is my new High Score! :D

I wonder if this was a planned leak for tomorrow's 3DMark 05 release. :) Is this the driver with a profile for 3DMark 05 that Rev. at B3D was talking about?

I've done some benches with these and 2 older drivers, and they perform quite well :)

Default driver settings (quality) on a 6800GT @ default clock speeds

3DMark & Aquamark: Default test
Doom3: demo 1 , 1152x864, ultra quality, 4xAA / 8xAF
Enemy Territory: custom timedemo, 1152x864 , 4xAA / 8xAF


61.77 66.32 66.70

3DMark03 10495 10556 10632
Aquamark3 54697 53987 54709
Doom 3 53.0 56.3 58.2
Enemy Territory 95.6 94.8 96.1

I agree 100%.

I haven't run 3dmark in months and a slightly higher number is meaningless with no IQ IMO.

Can anyone confirm whether or not these have the UT2004 crash bug when DEP is enabled on K8's?

BTW: Thanks for the benches, Boro.

Well I just installed them....they seem to have some very good i.q ...Halo has gained 1-2 fps...farcry looks great 1280X1024 4xaa 8xaf ran smooth (never ran it @ this setting before so i dunno if its up or down, but it ran great)....still getting stuttering in FC, but nowhere near as bad as with the 31/32 sets. Off to test doom 3 and painkiller now...but so far, these seem like keepers for me.

So how come sometimes the drivers are like 20MB+ and this time they're like 6.5MB?

These drivers fix a 2D flashing graphics issue I was having in Zuma with 66.31 & 66.32 :)

I'm still experiencing stuttering in Trackmania, I have had this since my 6800GT, it was no problem on my geforce 3 :(

Digital vibrance works in-game again.

Still can't set different memory clock speeds for 2D/3D.
