nVidia New Driver Benchmarking by Clan Bala

nVidia has launched its new driver in June 2005, version 7772.

I have done the benchmarking and share with you the latest driver performance as compared to the version 6693 in April 2004.

Surprisingly that the new driver do not outperform the old driver and and giving me the lousy benchmark in 3Dmark2001.
Test 1: 12451
Test 2: 12489
Test 1 : 12376
Test 2 : 12319

Conclusion, new drivers does not mean giving you the better performance. My advise is to do some testing and benchmarking on the stability and the performance before using it..
