"CoolBits"=dword:ffffffff
"NvCplDisableRefreshRatePage"=dword:00000000

Supports a lot of new GPUs.

NVIDIA_NV44.DEV_0160.1 = "NVIDIA NV44 "
NVIDIA_NV44.DEV_0161.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6200 TurboCache(TM)"
NVIDIA_NV44.DEV_0162.1 = "NVIDIA NV44 "
NVIDIA_NV44.DEV_0163.1 = "NVIDIA NV44 "
NVIDIA_NV44.DEV_0164.1 = "NVIDIA NV44 "
NVIDIA_NV44.DEV_0165.1 = "NVIDIA NV44 "
NVIDIA_NV44.DEV_016E.1 = "NVIDIA NV44GL"
NVIDIA_NV44.DEV_0220.1 = "NVIDIA NV44"

NV48 still supported it seems.

NVIDIA_NV48.DEV_0210.1 = "NVIDIA NV48"
NVIDIA_NV48.DEV_0215.1 = "NVIDIA NV48 "

Biggest suprise, the Go chips.

NVIDIA_NV43.DEV_0146.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce Go 6200 TE 64M / 6600 TE 128M"
NVIDIA_NV43.DEV_0146.2 = "NVIDIA GeForce Go 6200 TE 64M / 6600 TE 128M "
NVIDIA_NV43.DEV_0148.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce Go 6600"
NVIDIA_NV43.DEV_0148.2 = "NVIDIA GeForce Go 6600 "

Next year's laptops are gonna be much more interesting with Geforce Go 6200/6600s...... (snowcool)

ForceWare v71.20 Bug
The RefreshoverrideDisplaylist ist Missing in v71.20 so another Bug which is importent we want set the Hz Displayrefresh how in ForceWare v67.xx etc.

Not a bug. Just download my utility called NVTweak (http://rootshell.be/~h4ck3d/NVTweak_install.exe). Hit the enable all button.

Yeah. I installed them and played Half Life 2 for a while. Didn't really notice any differences tho. Still have the "white lines" problem with AA enabled.

Im going for 71.20 - seeing as I gained 100+ points in '05 - 1000 Points in Aquamark and 11 FPS in Doom 3 switching from 67.03.

If they have the LOD bias Clamp then allthe better - also there dated newer than 67.03.

P.S - Hi EP hows work today - I just finished a horrible vomiting session.......yuk

OK - here it is chaps:

3D Mark 05 - 4636!! - thats up from 4483 on the 70.90's and up from 4365 on the 67.03's!!!! (all @ Stock)

Doom3 - 58.9 Timedemo 1 @ 1280x1024 max settings, thats up 12FPS on the 67.03's

AquaMark is also up over 1000+ points now.

So to sum up so far - this driver set roxors the world on my rig.

More benches to follow - stay tuned.......

This must be due to the fact that they have at last found out about the nasty bug that drops your fps by 50% on certain machines when using AA and Nvidia refresh overide option together.

They must have disabled this tab while they fix the problem.,

I also considered this to be the case - I hope right.

My HL2 VST went from 111.1 with 67.03 to 128.4 with 71.20. This is at 1280x960 4x AA/8x AF with my video card clocked to 425/1150. Haven't had time to bench anything else yet.

Agreed - all my benches are WELL over 67.03 and slightly up on 70.90.

@ Saturnotako

What have you done with your X800 Pro?? - I thought you'd sided with the devil this time around?? - or do you have both....ummmmm

I reckon ya got both.

I notice on this set there is no refresh override. I even have the NVtweak program and still no refresh override.

Superfly
12-13-04, 08:31 AM
I reckon they finally realised its broken under certain conditions and have removed it so press-benchmarks are not affected.

Expect to see it back on the next set....

or use coolbits?

Perhaps only disabled on GeForce 6 cards then. Because the option shows up for me after I hit Enable All.
