http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_162.15.html i decided to retest these new drivers and give them a chance, ill start off by saying i have absolutely no problem with CP infact i love it even though now im required to get ntune to check the temperature but oh well. Antialiasing works perfectly when set in CP AF also works settings works profile save/load works cp loads fast and nice (not as fast as the old cp though, but thats normal) excellent stability 158 > 162 result 3Dmark03 = loss of 60 marks (90fps loss in the vertex shader test) 3Dmark05 = gain 30 marks 3Dmark06 = gain 51 marks i don't really care for 3dmark but i did the tests for fun. STALKER with 1003 patch = game is real smooth, fraps reporting 2fps increase over the 158 drivers in the same spot i used previously. F.E.A.R MP = i have to say this...the 162.15 are the very best drivers to date for F.E.A.R at least for me compared to ANY forceware i tried. they rock! never seen the game so smooth with 16 players and smoke/bombs on screen at once. FS2004 = didn't notice any difference from the 158 fw. Splinter Cell DA = increase of 2 fps RIDDICK = loss of 3 fps but game is still real smooth. COD2 = loss of 3 fps (again i dont care) same as riddick. a word on IQ = these drivers are about the same as the 158.27 in the IQ quality but for some reason the desktop in winxp looks a bit more focused or sharper, it is the 1st thing i notice when i install a driver since i spend most of my time surfing the net etc. the 162.15 are keepers for me! forgetting for a moment any FRAPS fps loss, gameplay is absolutely no different than the 158.27 for me, the performance in FEAR was enough to win me over and i didn't notice any bug in any game, all is good. best drivers to date? for me possibly, maybe i should get Quake Wars Beta and try it but even if QW would show a loss of 100fps i wouldn't switch over since QW is that...BETA.
