Driver Update from I also installled the Should I have waited on my purchase of a for the 55nm version or does it just not make that much of a difference?

If the claim that every graphics driver brings more speed were true, no one would ever buy new 3D hardware again because the driver updates would deliver greater benefits. Installed betaa on my machine last night — 3DMark06 and 3DMark05 both went up about pts. This is the only way to determine how much potential could be seen in the fast graphics chips.

Think these performance increases effect my gt? Please read the release notes for more information on product support, features, driver fixes and known compatibility issues.

Includes several 3D application performance improvements. The greatest speed increases for new products generally come within the next three months, when more errors are found and corrected, and beat are made to meet current game requirements, ensuring the basic level of 3D performance.

It hates older games locks the computer up when I try to open onebut other than that it is great I guess.

When you all install new drivers, do you remove the old ones first using a driver cleaner or do you just run the install? Always uninstall the previous driver at the very least I never bother uninstalling the previous driver: Tests were conducted 1777.92 a Radeon HD I just installed those on my xp boot last week.
