Mike Chambers from Viper 3D sent word that he has posted a big driver shootout for the Viper 550.
With all the drivers for this card that have surfaced lately, this will prove to be a great guide for those of you deciding which driver you should use for the best results. Here's what you'll find:
Viper V550 users can start a slogan similar to that used by Microsoft - "what set of drivers do you want to use today?" Here is the scoop in the quest to find out what drivers offer the best 3DMark 99 performance. To help out, James Barsing has run benchmarks (default and overclocked speeds) on the Viper V550 using the following drivers: - Hercules driver version 4.10.01.0048 - Diamond driver version 4.10.01.0220 - Diamond driver version 4.10.01.0239 - Diamond driver version 4.10.01.0245 - WHQL driver version 4.10.01.0252 - NVIDIA reference driver version 4.10.01.0048
He also has some benchmarks from an overclocked P2-333 running at 560mhz with some serious cooling. And next week you'll be able to find Half-Life (D3D) and Shogo benchmarks, and possibly Sin and Quake 2 benchmarks as well. Check out the driver comparison here
