Hi everyone,

Just want to wish everyone Happy New Year! (xmasgrin)

Oh, and I almost forgot, anyone fancy trying a new driver set before new year? If so, feel free to download 71.24 from EP @ OSNN.NET (http://www.osnn.net/comments.php?shownews=11625)

ITS dated 15th DEC and WHQL'ed on 22/12/04 but the original .inf only supports:

NVIDIA_NV40.DEV_0040.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra"
NVIDIA_NV40.DEV_0041.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6800"
NVIDIA_NV40.DEV_0042.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6800 LE"
NVIDIA_NV40.DEV_0045.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT"
NVIDIA_NV40.DEV_004E.1 = "NVIDIA Quadro FX 4000"
NVIDIA_NV41.DEV_00C1.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6800 "
NVIDIA_NV41.DEV_00CE.1 = "NVIDIA Quadro FX 1400"
NVIDIA_NV43.DEV_0140.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT"
NVIDIA_NV43.DEV_0141.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6600"
NVIDIA_NV43.DEV_0145.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6610 XL"
NVIDIA_NV43.DEV_014E.1 = "NVIDIA Quadro FX 540"
NVIDIA_NV43.DEV_014F.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6200"

NVIDIA_BR02.DEV_00F8.1 = "NVIDIA Quadro FX 3400/4400"
NVIDIA_BR02.DEV_00F9.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Series GPU"

For the owners of non-Geforce 6xxx cards - please wait for a modded inf.

Thanks to EP for these, and people, please post your comments once you try them, thanks & enjoy! Happy New Year!

Lets hope it doesn't have the problems that the previous set did (didn't even look at those!)

12-29-04, 04:46 PM
I'm still running 71.20's - they were quite good but these are meant to be better if you belive some hype they got in last few days....I shall see soon....

I need to see this yellow water for myself I think...
Currently playing it through for the second time.

I also have an ultra so hopefully the problem can be reproduced and I can get in touch with nvidia about it.

12-29-04, 05:28 PM
Yay! Downloading the driver package! (xmasgrin)

Still yellow water in Half-Life 2 :(

I dont get ur problem... i even installed the 71.20 driver and dont have any yellow water...

maybe u should boot up in windows safe mode, use driver cleaner und then u install these drivers again... my tip (xmasmile)

12-29-04, 05:28 PM
Thanks for the download. They seem to be okay with the Chronicles of Riddick. So, I'm keeping them for now since that is about the only thing I'm playing at the moment.

12-29-04, 05:35 PM
Weeeeeeee noticed improved FPS with these new drivers in all games.... (snowlol)

how optimistic :p
looks like mvktech decided to take and give no credit.
Doesn't work if you are nice or not, some people just don't know web etiquette.

so it's time for the typical " can anyone test these and can give a chart" question... (cheers)

12-29-04, 05:55 PM
Hmmmmm that yellow water looks like it could be just due to gordan having a weak bladder........

whats your graphics card? on Geforce 5900 this problem doesnt appear, even in dx9-mode.

I won't bench but I will test hl2.

12-29-04, 06:03 PM
You can get them also here...
ForceWare WinXP2k v71.24 (http://www.mvktech.net/index.php?option=com_remository&func=fileinfo&filecatid=715)

12-29-04, 06:12 PM
I used these drivers, and compared to 66.68, I got no diffrence in fps on aquamark 3 with my geforce 6800, 1024x768/4x af/very high detail, still 42,450 points :(

12-29-04, 06:16 PM
OK Performance in Americas Army has improved compared to older Drivers, but yet the white pale RPK still exists.

I've been away from Nvidia for about a year and when I come back I find not so good drivers................ I think Nvidia need to work better on their Drivers Teams.

12-29-04, 06:19 PM
Same problem as 71.22s with HL2 water as pointed out earlier




used Driver Cleaner in Safe mode and all

Try some benchmarks now just for curiousity.
