Nice its raining again with new drivers, hope that several settings works now!
and that openGL works for more games, good times to roll then......

09-30-04, 07:30 AM
oh man, 3 different drivers in 2 days...my head :( i think, i'm gonna do some testing...

So how does this compare to 66.70, its newer according to the date.

same '05 score for me as 66.28 and 66.51 - I have yet too run the 66.70's on 3DMark05 but they do seem to be upto 1000 points faster - which is both odd and weird!!!!

Just finished Testing:

Image Settings: Quality, Trilinear Optimization on


3DMark05 (1024x768): 4502
Doom3 (1280x1024, HQ, No AA + 8:1AF): 62fps
VST (1280x1024, 4xAA + 8:1AF): 86fps


3DMark05: 4429
Doom3: 62fps
VST: 86fps


(Note: I had some serious problems with these drivers. Doom3 crashed a several times, CS:S had some strange lines on the floor.)

3DMark05: 4610
Doom3: 65fps
VST: 86fps

So far, the 66.70 seems to be the fastest of all, but those problems I expierenced were really annoying me, so now, I'm using 66.51, which I recommend!

66.70 crashed 3dmark03 so I ditched it.

09-30-04, 11:34 AM
really?? - worked a charm on my system a few days ago when i had it installed - ill pop it back on and post results in an hour or two.

its odd that the 66.70 had an older date than these do

Seems that the global drivers settings been noticed for driver settings include
for 3Dmark05 and lower, some FPS fluxing can be seen........
And when 3Dmark05 unlock with a full regged key some boost is also noticed with 200 FPS more....
Digital vibrace works again also and other games are smooth with testing, up for testing with Full Spectrum Warrior........

3D Mark 05 & my experiences:

66.29 - 4334
66.51 - 4319
66.70 - 4389 - Best so far + Colour profiles work properly.

I have not tried the 66.28 set from NVD - seems little point now.

My system is ALWAYS run @ stock - thats how I play games so thats how I benchmark.

drivers @ quality settings, using the default test settings.

wouldn't the 66.29's be more refined since the end number is higher?

just wondering not sure

09-30-04, 03:34 PM
These bogged my system down.

I've modded INF so everybody can enjoy, also the driver has been uploaded into a nice wee 7.9MB.
See sig for details.

BTW these drivers have a problem with AA above 1024x768, where it doesn't work.
These are Benchmark (speed only) drivers.
