Default AM3 & Det50 Not Isolated..."There is another"

http://www.gamersdepot.com/hardware/..._rel50/001.htm

Ok, I asked this jokingly in another thread, but did these drivers(51.75) really go through QA? Did NVIDIA not expect anyone to actually watch the screen or play any games with these drivers? Not all journalists are like Anandtech or some other unmentionable big sites who don't look at IQ unless they have a reason to

Yeah i was reading that also, it seems nVIDIA has done something with the pixle shaders in v2.0 that decreases image quility for speed. Any game that use 2.0 has worse gfx and is ALOT darker then it should. Notice 3Dmark 2001 gets a 25% boost in the PS2.0 test while it's far lowr in Halo and TR AoDm, an other cheat?

Looks like the D50's are going to be a major disapointment, neither wonder Valve didn't want people to run the D50's for the Half Life 2 benchmark!

Stealth, where's that "There is another" line from? It seems remarkably familiar, but I can't remember from where.

OH YEAH! Now I feel stupid. Or maybe I just don't feel like a geek for not being able to quote Star Wars.

This just get worse.. the IQ is horrible on the Det 50's, why in the world would anyone want their games to look like that?

Baron the last 2 threads I have read have had random star wars associations from you - you feeling okay?

Hmm I wonder if the gamma/brightness results are accidental or not? Less detail = make it darker so they can't see the bits missing... would make sense...

Wait for det 60's - an all black screen - the ultimate in optimisation
