just noticed that too, be back with benches in a bit
NICE find. Lemme go d/l these @ the office. [56k @ home... lol]
The release notes say that these are the 67.02 but with a single bug with 6600 cards fixed.
it sez 67.03 to me.....
Well i can report that:
After looking at my game tests. These drivers perform as good, if not better than 67.02 which i last tested on.
UT2004, frames the same 1/2FPS higher in my stress points
FarCry benchmark up a little
Doom3 timedemo 2xAAQ up by 3FPS
Haven't tested HL2 or 3Dmarks yet just wanted to report back my game findings.
Also the card was at stock for a chance in the games and my CPU was at 3.2. Man i love my graphics card, performs amazing at any speed.
Thanks for the word,,word....;-) I needed to hear something positive before I gave them a shot....and I bet you do love that card, you lucky devil..Man, just imagine what the next generation top O the line, Nvidia graphic cards will be able to do. I am so, so much looking forward to that, and next time, if not sooner, I'm going ultra too.....later word.
is the bug fixed for 6600 or is it real??? for the 6800?
downloading now, gonna check em out on my FX card....let me tell you i am VERY happy to see these, the 66.93 set was kind of crappy feeling for me...
66.93 were crap along with the ones released yesterday too, 67.42. Someone tell me if there is a noticeable difference between 67.02 and these 67.03.
I think if you run any bench two or 3 times in a row, you would get the same difference as with the difference from 6702 to 6703. Probably nothing changed bench performance wise.
tried em out on aquamark 3, counter-strike source, and half-life 2 deathmatch (yay its out!).... pretty much same performance as 67.02...but i don't mind upgrading since these are offical, not betas
still getting no less than 45-50 fps in heavy fighting on CS:S. and upwards of 100 fps other times...not bad for a 160 dollar vid card really...and this is with 2xaa and 4xaf
Afaik these are just the 67.02's with the SiS fix, so non-SiS chipset users should not bother.
What SiS fix?
Still really annoying bug with the game profiles. Even more of one now, it sometimes forgets u ticked AA settings tick box for a certain game profile. Perhaps that was there before. Just really annoying.
I went from 70.41 to 67.03 and the half life 2 death match differecen is awsome. Proberbly the same as 67.02 but hey its +.o1 better
I'll upgrade my drivers when NVIDIA finally releases one with working Performance Profiles and Refresh Rate Override. That is if they ever decide to make those features work, instead of concentrating solely on performance.
so whats new in these drivers besides that SIS mobo and 6600gt APG fix?
does it make cs:S faster?
How are these official? They aren't on Nvidia's site.
Its called an ftp server where they supply us with beta drivers.
The ones on the site are non beta.
Does this awnser your question?
Here's a link to Nzone where drivers are located.
