When you download and try - let us know how they work! I think these might be first DX9 drivers from NVIDIA but released by Creative though. More info and mirrors (later as some are created) @ www.Warp2Search.net (http://www.warp2search.net/article.php?sid=9268&mode=&order=0)

Thanks for starting this thread, Mark and another big thank you for pointing us NVIDIOTS to these drivers.

You folks know the drill, download, test and provide feedback.

This is a nice early Christmas present, I'd say.

Happy holidays!

The queue seems awfully long. I'll get them once mirrors are available.
Creative Europe sure is fast. A *lot* faster than Gainward, who's still at 29.80 :D
BTW, Thanks for pointing these out, Mark!

They fast alright - but screen a bit un-adjusted

but they fast - checked with a few game benches , Earth & Beyond and UT2k3 got 5-10 more FPS in UT2k3 and about 500k polygons per second more in E&B

UPDATE from Mark Fox: Farge spotted in the 41.80 .zip file that a file called "modes.txt" says: Version 42.00, 12/10/2002 - so could this be the next version to come out? Time will tell...

3DMark-wise these sucked for me.

Went from 7466 to 7125, so a loss of over 300 points on a GeForce3 Ti 200 (AMD Athlon XP 1700+, 512MB DDR).

They're fast, good, good, we have more mirrors now...

How are drivers though?

On the 98se side of things, the screen was a bit too far to the left for me on the default install, but the benched about 50 onions higher for me. (Not a lot, but I'll take what I can get! ;) )

The IQ is good, and games seem better/smoother/faster for me...but I haven't had a lot of time to play with them yet.

Getting ready to install the XP set in a little bit, I got a new toy in the mail that I'm installing at the same time and it's sort of tricky... ;)

I was over 300 points slower in 3dMark. I am going to read a few posts on these drivers, before I decide whether to continue using them.
41.09 are great for me.

I was thinking that 3dmark is not optimized for DX9. That might explain the slightly lower score. 300 points is not really a great big deal in 3dmark

Well I gained 240 points in 3dMark(Most of them I lost going to Dx9) So im ok so far with them, Gained a few FPS in games UT2003 about 5-8 FPS

Tribes2 Runs smoother with less frame rate drop when alot is going on.

Jedi Outcast gained about the same FPS as UT2003.

Elder Scrolls is much smoother.

SS , Q3, Army ops, and older games are about the same.

I heard people saying that DX9 and those drivers should be installed togheter - meaning that they work best with DX9 , I think that games with high use of pixel and vertex shaders benefit the most

The ********* mirror is down for me, anyone have any other mirrors?
