I did some benchmarking with 3mark 2003, and it turns out I get the best score with the 56.72 drivers. Also tried the starstorms and some of the recommended older drivers, as well as all the new betas (61.xx and 60.xx).

56.72 seems to be the best on my system

cool riksox, am very glad that this topic is helping every1 . i've never heard of the overdrive drivers...but i'll try them ill see if they are worthy if they are i'll post in the sticky thanks savage-xp =).
Old Chieftain, there are differences between drivers when it comes to O/C. Make me, i've post a couple of drivers in the sticky check'em out and benchmark with them in games and see which ones are better for you... and yes...sadly.. a 5600u is slow and about to be ancient since nvidia took them off the line to be replaced with the 5700u.

Default driver differences - 06-23-2004, 22:08 | posts: 57 | Location: Republic of Ireland

so far I have tried
61.40 aquamark of 68316
61.32 aquamark of 68910
61.45 aquamark of 68696

although the 61.32 gave me good marks in aquamark the 61.45 outperformed the others in 3dmark03 it was much smoother and wings of fury hit an fps average of 352 ( the scene of the close up of the carbon marked wing was over 1650 for a couple of seconds) ....the only place the 61.45 slowed up compared to the 61.32 in aquamark was in large scene vegatation. it actually edged the 61.32 in most of the others but scored overall some 214 points lower but both the .32 and .45 are better in both score and look to the .40's

I was wondering what is being tested in the Large Scene Vegatation portion of the aquamark test and there are anyrecomendations for tweaks that affect that particular issue?

now these are done without any tweaking or overclocking once I get water cooled at the end of the month I will try it again (mostly for gloating purposes....)
THank you for your time in considering this matter,
OC

I'm switched to 61.71 and they're awesome! Very nice performance increase in Far Cry, and everything else is running smooth.

61.71 seems works great for me. Still cannot beat my 3dm2003 score with SS56.72X (loose 300pts) but who cares abt benchmarking score while all games that I played runs smoothly with high quality image: UTK2K4, FarCry, Ravenshield, PainKiller. I think FW61.71 is the best NV driver for now.

But I do hope that there are no newest NV driver coming again at least for a week

Please Let me tell u the story of Satan's Drivers. I went from 52.16, which worked nicely, to 56.56, then 56.72. the 56+57 r driving (pun) me INSANE. Every time I get to crucial part of a game or even just when I'm having fun I get a "Paged error in a non -paged area" then it goes on about nv4_disp.dll screwing up. Plz HELP, I thought that sticking to the 5x.xx series would b safe n fast nsted im going slowly mad....

I have a GEForce 2 Ti videocard, and the best drivers I've used are the 53.06 X, they worked great.

When I used 56.72, AA didn't work at all, neither 60.XX drivers, and when tried 61.XX AA doesn't work fine, when playing FIFA 2004, the menu is separated ,a nd it seems like the screen should be something like 1200x400 to show it all, but ingame didn't work so bad, but it was certainly slow.

Hi,

Tried the 61.36 WHQL and they gave a significant improvement in 3dmark 2003!

Seem to be good drivers for an fx5600.

a friend of mine just bought an AOpen FX5200 for her father. His father uses it for digital picture editing, is there any difference between 2D IQ between drivers? I suppose not, but who knows...

Im using 61.36, but am considering moving back down to the 60 series.... i seem to be having some problems with "serious windows errorrs" and such. Otherwise, my performance in aquamark and 3dmark have actually been higher.

guys, need some help here... I have a medion Laptop with a geforcefx go5600. So far, since the crappy driver that came with the computer was the 44.01 (prehistoric!) and can't get a new one from Medion, I have been using all this new drivers that come out but instead of go5600, I'm using just the desktop version of fx5600... the funny thing is that right now I'm using the 61.45 and get twice as much score in the benchmarks and also games run unbelievable better. The 61.45 drivers were the last ones that run on my laptop since the 61.71 and above give me a black screen. Somebody know if there is some way to make them work on my laptop, or where to get some of this latest drivers for my laptop?... thanks a lot!.... by the way, I'm new in this formus!

I get incredible benchmark results with Detonator 44.03, high above others. But I had serious problems with new games. I tried and tested many drivers and decided to use StarStorm 56.72, works great. I get about 20% increase in shader performance.

right now I'm using the 61.34 drivers for my 6800? Do the other drivers perform better? Or should I try all of them for myself?
