View Full Version : Comprehensive forceware comparison

04-11-05, 10:14 AM
For those interested, Origo 3d, a german site have put up a nice comparison of all the recent forcewares and modded versions that have been released within the past 6 months or so.
Google translation is as always, a little iffy, but benchies are the universal language :headbang:

Looks like that site finally figured out that nVidia cards don't normally use 6xAA, which they have used in previous comparisons. Thanks for the link :)

hasnt been alot of performance increases latly..
Wonder if they are maxed out already or if there still is more to come, prolly no 25% increases like ye oled GF3 got around the time of the R8500 release hehe..

I think the huge performance improvement received around the 61.xx drivers was all she wrote for the G6 and driver miracles. =)

Not a very accurate comparison at all.... They are just benching the driver. and the driver is different on every system. They dont even test IQ

...so judging from this review// the best driver is the one that 'breaks' the fewest things...

Yeah, personally I don't care if I get 2 fps less, as long as the driver doesn't mess up IQ or stability I'll stick with whatever works best.

It'd be silly to install a driver set and go "ZOMG! I got 1000 more points in 3DMark, but none of my games work right any longer. " :D

A list of what things are broken with each driver set with a IQ comparison would be far more usefull.
