hjs meldt dat Anandtech nu ook een onderzoekje heeft gemaakt betreffende de GeForce2 FSAA performance met de 5.30 Detonator drivers. Ook zij concluderen, evenals Firingsquad, dat de FSAA performance met deze drivers in Direct3D een flink stuk is verbeterd, wat natuurlijk erg mooi is :
Performance wise, NVIDIA's GeForce2 GTS does have the Voodoo5 5500 beat. There's no way you can argue that statement, but once you factor in FSAA performance and image quality the GeForce2 GTS all of the sudden loses its appeal. When the GeForce2 GTS was released its 5.16 drivers wouldn't even support FSAA in Direct3D. Later on with the release of the Detonator 5.22 drivers the GeForce2 GTS gained FSAA support but the performance was far from satisfactory, by this point we just assumed that if you really wanted FSAA support the Voodoo5 would be your best choice.
As we mentioned in our Detonator 5.22 investigation, the performance of NVIDIA's D3D FSAA implementation could most definitely improved with some better drivers.
