Well, another day, another beta driver hits the web, don't you guys just love it?

At the moment no site is hosting the download as far as I'm aware but...you can download it from Rapidshare!

Enjoy and post your results here!

Thanks very much to The Frenchy for this one!

I wonder what driver are using the lucky guys that are testing the g70s as we speak.

This one according to Guru3d, even developers only have 77.60 so its a new driver for many! :)

Installed and Ran 3Dmark 06 as a quick test.

77.50 = 5517
77.62 = 5536

Little increase, not that it means much :)

On to games and specifically BF2

hmm so far these drivers get the thumbs down from me. bf1942 keeps rebooting my comp totally at random as well. :thumbdwn:

No problems with bf2 here.

sound dodgy, i'll pass for now. BF2 crashes are not what I want and 77.60 has been a great set in all apps so far.

just played a couple hours of BF2 and no troubles here. Very smooth. Seems smoother then any previous driver on a 64 player map too.

ps, i've just about finished a comparison test between the 71.89, 72.13, 72.14, 76.44, 77.13, 77.30, 77.50 drivers with 3DMK05 and Aquamark so i'll add these to it then i'll do some games

You're getting quite a workout with all these leaked benches. :) Edit: Geez, I don't know what I'm thinking sometimes. Leaked DRIVERS.

Wow, thanks macatak. I should get my 6800GT sometime next week. Im probably gonna go with the 77.30. It looks like the fastest, most stable driver so far.
