Well i am wondering if FSAA and AF performence is increased any!! I guess there is one way to find out! Try it out!!!! I am still amazed by the up to 100 fps in nature. Thats a insane increase!!!!! The most i ever got before on nature was lets see 48 fps. Thats like a 50% improvement on the nature scores alone in 3dmark2001SE!

The new Det is supposed to give a 25% speed increase and also contains the code required for developers to emulate the NV30 OpenGL extensions.

Default Re: Detonator 40... what is the difference between detonator 40 and driver 30.84?

Yes, these are a newer revision. Go to your add/remove programs list in the control panel, remove the nvidia drivers. and when the system reboots let it install the standard vga driver, then install these ones.

that is what i did.

I uninstalled the previous drivers, did a reboot and after that i installed the new Detos 40.41.
But when i try to klick on advanced options in the display settings the whole panel just quits.
So i uninstalled the 40.41 did a reboot again and installed my old ones.

Gues what?
Now i have the same problem with my old drivers.

What the hell is that?
Any idea?

You have miscalculated it. It is over 100% increase.

You see, 48fps +100% (=48fps) is 96fps so it's definitely more than 100%, like 108% or so

And yes, where's the Win9x driver?
