Ontem eu lí num site algumas "impressões" de beta-testers da nVidia sobre o novo ForceWare 65.62:
Aqui tá o link para o arquivo com as DLL's e alguns benchs: http://www.3dchipset.com/temp/proof.zip
I've been talking back and forth to a driver tester for nVidia and he has spat back some results of a beta 65.xx driver that is in his possession. Now you can take this as a grain of salt or otherwise. I'm here to be the medium for him to share what his results are of this driver on his test system he uses for work. He also sent me 2 files along with the excel file of 3DMark03 and the results listed below. The 2 files are one from 65.05 DLL and the other from a pre-alpha 70.01 DLL. Check out below for his results of the 65.xx driver over the official 61.77 forceware driver:
AMD Athlon(tm) XP 3200+ (226FSB)
512MB RAM @ 452MHZ @ 11-3-3-2
ABIT NF7-S V2.0 MOBO
WINDOWS XP SP2 RC1
NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT 256 MB
SB Audigy 2 ZS Audio
Algumas perdas e ganhos no UT2k4... Mas ganhos bacanas no Doom 3 e no 3Dmark03

END OF TESTS
Also noted lack of 3 dll's:
nview.dll Desktop management hook library - 61.77

nvwdmcpl.dll Desktop management control panel applet - 61.77
All other files are 65.62
Like Wmc90 said, there's a new optmization, or maybe a "separation" of optization anisotropic filters. Now, we have mip filter and sample optimization. But, weird, even with MIP FILTER enabled in "global bla bla bla settings", the settings for games still off... The other two optmizations still on.
Even with optmizations on, the IQ still rockz! Maybe the best i've ever seen.
But, weird², when I choose High Quality in CP, disabling optimizations, I have 5 to 10fps loss in Doom 3 timedemo This also happens with other driver.
And weird³, when I choose Quality in CP, enabling optimizations, the performance rockz but the Anti-Aliasing option in-game don't work. I have to enable AA 2x in CP to have this in-game.
