67.02's! Could these be the drivers for Half-Life 2?

Thanx for the linkage.
I had not even noticed them being posted. :)

Thats why I posted it here :) I know alot of you guys are only viewing this forum right now, and if they are the HL2 drivers, we want to make sure you get them installed before the 30 minutes is up :) BTW, here are some numbers I took:

Half-Life 2 StressTest
1600x1200 2x/4x

66.93- 103.85
67.02- 103.68

11-16-04, 01:41 AM
VST @ 1280x960 w/4xAA and 16xAF

67.50 - 87ish fps
67.02 - 90.8fps

I don't see a difference in IQ between the two drivers.

I just installed them.
No time for testing.
All my testing will be done playing HL2. :D

Bizarre - the nvidia (non-beta) driver download page has gone back to the 61.77s).

Maybe beacuse the latest 66.93 had too many bugs with current games.

I still see 66.93 on it.

Same here.

So do these drivers remove the white lines between textures? I keep thinking their barnacle tongues...

EDIT: They were 67.02 this morning when I downloaded them. I see 66.93 (or whatever) now, but I've installed the 67.02, so I'll report back later.

It seems to have fixed the white lines in Half-Life 2. I don't notice any difference in frame rate.

The 67.02's run great with HL2 on my rig.
The 93's screwed up everything.

indeed, 66.93 caused many crashes, read exceptions, BSOD's...

I went back to 61.77 and not a problem anymore :) best drivers for HL2 (for my 5900XT anyway :P)
