well after Devour from EB asked for a comparison, i decided to do one. i think they're pretty good as far as quality goes, but you can be the judge of the performance.

i used Extreme G 67.02a, Extreme G 70.90, and nvidia's official ForceWare 67.02

these tests took forever! i originally planed to do Extreme G 67.02, 67.03, & 70.90, and nVidia 66.93, 67.02, 67.03, & 70.90..... but just takes too long! took me 2 days just to get these. enjoy.

Great job m8!

Different setups/systems WILL perform differently, but this is a great guideline. Thanks :D

Which are you talking about? The 70.90? Or the 67.02a?
