Hi! I was just wondering if there will be any new extreme G drivers now that the 71.20s are out :) don't want to change from perfect to not so perfect, and by that I mean that the ex. G 67.02 are running very nicely :) and what I've read so far about the new 71.20 drivers is that they're quite buggy :( so I won't update until there will be new ex. G 71.20!! u gotta love the extreme G drivers ;) they're the best!

I'm sure a set will be released. Keep your pants on, and don't bump a thread after only 6 hours. :nono:

indeed 71.20 drivers will be released very soon. they are infact already modded while i was at school by my little helper JRd1st i just have to check em out and make the necessary changes. also a beta version of the FX drivers will be released to beta testers today.

I'm very happy with the EG's I have now (67.03). Looking forward to future ones too (xmasgrin)

for all you cs 1.6 and older game players with these 71.20 drivers there may be some hope for you guys with some great performance. I have changed a few tweaks and it seemed to have increased performance nicely with older and newer games.

starting to get some of the first feedback from beta testers on the 71.20 Fx optimized driver. http://www.valancestudios.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=96

Yeah, I'm gonna have to call shenanigoats on that. No offense to the driver creator, but I think that guy who claims to get those results is a card-carrying member of the Extreme G Driver A**-licking Society.

Looks promising. Now if only NV can impliment DX9 for the FX users in HL2(everyone will give props to NV (snowcool)

Notice that the quality shot does not have AA enabled. AA maxed means 6xAA, which is not used most likely. And the other 2 users reported a loss and no difference. Anyway, I'll wait for some more results.

**Edit** Noticed he says 8xAA in the thread, so its via CP.

c0re simply tested one driver from another he had the same settings during both tests and he recorded his findings.

Yeah, but when I mentioned that AA isn't applied, I meant that maybe it was applied the first time while its clearly not applied this time. Seeing now that he forced 8xS through the CP, it appears that the given setting isn't working with these drivers. Maybe that was what gave him such a large FPS boost.

This has to be one of the single most beautiful HL2 quality screenshots I've ever seen:

Some AA would have made it better though.

Not bad ... Here is what I get to look at when I play. I play on full everything plus 4x AA and 16x AF. I get a steady 70 FPS ... 45 - 50 FPS in a huge battle. None of these pics should be spoilers... but if so ... be warned.

Do these do anything for a 6800? HL2 DM runs ass-like for me most of the time, Im willing to try anything to speed it up ;)

They sure do! But don't use the FX only set. The regular modded 71.20 should be out tomorrow. Or you can get the inf only mod here (http://www.mvktech.net/component/option,com_simpleboard/Itemid,34/func,view/id,4107/catid,11/).

You'll need to get the drivers separately here (http://www.mvktech.net/index.php?option=com_remository&func=fileinfo&filecatid=661).

Enjoy

ssj4goku887 and I are working together. We both have the mod and are testing it before releasing it to the general public.

And the nv4_disp.inf is the only part that gets modded. There are optimizations that are not available through the control panel or coolbits.

Did you think we actually make our own drivers? :rolleyes2: If it takes nVidia 6 months to produce a new set, how could VS hope to do it in even 6 years?
