does frame rates increase when using a lower refresh rate?
So far I don't care for these drivers much, based on the following benchmarks.
3DMark03=9635 1st run, after the rest of the benchmarks ran 9639
AquaMark3=52,537 (GFX 8034)
GLExcess=didn't run correctly
3DMark03=9677 1st run, 9684 2nd run
Aquamark3=52,381 (GFX 7950)
3DMark03=9648 1st run, 9659 2nd run
Aquamark3=52,045 (GFX 7881)
If it wasn't for all of the BSODs I started getting with the 84.12 drivers when running benchmark after benchmark, and I don't mean just these runs, more these times 5. I would switch back. I might try the 84.12 Z-tweaked. Other wise it'e either stick with this or back to 82.12, maybe I'll give the Z-tweaked of those a try as well.
I didn't pay any attention to image quality. To be honest I don't think I noticed any. I would have to have some images to look at to compare the 2, so a really good camera and a good cleaning of my monitor, then look at them side by side and then maybe I might be able to see a difference.
Maybe I don't know what to look for or something (or stupid) but I don't think I've really ever seen much of an image quality difference between drivers.
Yeah, same here.. abt 10 fps increased in FEAR, gonna try Doom3 later.. heh :cyclone:
i wouldnt rely on a driver soley based on 3dmark scores, best scores i ever got on 05 was from 77.xx driver and is still well over a 1000 pts higher than any driver since, but my games run faster than ever with this driver
i m getting a bsod (nv_mini.sys) when i try to access nvidia control panel while playing a dvd in windvd.
by the way cs:source 3 frames up.
Wow...these seem to be getting great reviews so far. I think I should try em out.
huh? you need a camera to do an IQ comparison?... have you ever heard about FRAPS?
I have but I never considered that it would be possible to compare in game movies because of the loss in quality. Screenshots might work but in alot of games, the IQ can change in different spots. This occurs in BF2 alot, where certain images can disort in certain positions.
hmm these drivers dont appear stable. Just got a crash in GTR which I never got with earlier drivers...
No problems here...everything just perfect.
Try remove in safety mode the old drivers with Driver Cleaner Pro.
Them install de XG versions...
They are the best tweaked driver i ever tryed...great IQ incrise
Okay, here's a pic. Granted, this is much better after forcing high quality through nHancer.
and again great performence, great IQ ... but CSS (hl2.exe) is crashing after some time playing... somebody else with that problem?
this drivers corrupt my desktop when exiting sometimes 3d apps
Well...most be something in your system. Maybe your card or cpu is getting warm.
I play CS:S @ 1600x1200 all in high quality, plus 6xAA and 16AF, last night for 3h without a single error or crash.
tried these great peformance., but BF2 was a bit jumpy for me maybe the lateset v1.21 patch screwed my system
Serious Sam 2 plays smooth everything maxed which i didnt get with previous drivers so there is a big inprovement.
keppers for now.
Eeek...actually the same bug applies to these drivers...I hope it won't take as much time to fix as the texture bug from previous drivers...
where do I find XG drivers?
i have the xg 83.90 installed now. does anyone on here play papyrus nascar racing 2003 with these new 84.20 drivers?....thanks..
Try searching from google with "tweakrus"
Getting some wierd stuff on COD2. The rooftops are lighter and darker, not artifacts, but big squares. Ill catch a SS to post.
