Hello everyone,
I thought I'd share my IQ test results from the XG 71.89s and the newly released XG 76.45a set. Sorry only game is CS:S because that's all I'm playing atm. I am trying to decide which to use for my reformat tomorrow, assuming we don't have a new driver by then! I honestly can't tell much difference so I may just go with the newest.

Hint...The .89 driver is shown first.

I can't really see a difference, i'm looking at the highlighted areas, I just don't really see a difference, nvidia has me fooled?

The only thing I have noticed so far is when the server I play on is maxed out things run a lot smoother with .45a.

I posted the pics because people are always asking if the IQ is any different between driver sets and this way they can see for themselves.

maybe a XG versus standard driver IQ comparison would be more interesting

XG's IQ is godlike compared to the WHQL'd nVidia ones.

yeah not much point in doing a comparison of that unless it were for bragging rights.

Still, would be good to see the exact changes ...

I haven't seen a single quality comparison between the normal and modded drivers (preferrably with other games than HL2/FC/D3)

I've seen a fe comparisons between XG and normal Nvidia drivers...I can't tell a difference. The only thing I notice in the XG drivers is that they default to HQ in the driver properties while the nvidia ones default to quality. I'm pretty sure that is the biggest difference in the drivers, and the XG drivers are just for bragging rights or something
