    oh for god sakes.. not every driver is going to give you a boost, unless it drops quality

    H.264 is a video codec. It's the shiny new revolutionary format that's going to take over the world. Maybe.

    So, no, it won't give you a "nice FPS boost".
    It'll just allow you to play high-definition, H.264 encoded videos smoothly, which is probably even cooler (IMHO).

    Also, Wikipedia helps, sometimes.

    So if I understand this correctly, it has nothing to do with gaming at all :)

    Thanks for the replies Guys :smoke:

    ...Not necessarily, an increase in performance does not always have to mean a decrease in quality.
    Nvidia can optimise a driver in such a way that it uses fewer resources, thus resulting in better performance, but still having good quality.

    lol, and when was the last time they did that without losing quality?

    AA is hardware incorporated.. drivers can't change that

    Drivers can certainly change how AA is implemented, and calculated

    to a degree, but they can't add higher modes, these are hardwired into the chip

    its why 16xAA was never gotten to work on FX series
