Bij 3DRage hebben ze een aantal Quake III benchmarks gepost van de nVidia Detonator 5.14 drivers. Vooral onder NT4 blijken de drivers veel goeds te doen; een winst van ongeveer 25 procent! Windows 98 profiteert van zo'n 14 procent winst, Windows 2000 gaat er helaas in High Quality mode wat op achteruit.
Nvidia beta drivers seem to have a bad habit of getting "leaked". The latest crop, versions 5.13 and 5.14 (which you can snag here), have been the subject of much discussion lately. One feature of the new drivers is full scene anti-aliasing via a software hack, but I am not going to go into that as it does not work well at all on my system. What I do have for you is a boatload of Quake III benchmarks on three, count 'em, THREE different Windows operating systems- 98, NT 4, and 2000- comparing the official reference drivers to version 5.14. I am going to keep the commentary to a minimum as the numbers mostly speak for themselves.
