mobilenvidia Posted December 30, 2008 Report Share Posted December 30, 2008 CQSTELUSH Has written a VERY comprehensive guide to drivers and how they do on Notebooks. Now I present you a driver shootout, a test of 30 nVIDIA drivers, on a Dell Inspiron 1520 configuration, an iMAC and an Acer Aspire 6920G. First part, the one who handles the Windows XP drivers testing is over and published. The chart is composed in 2 parts, one with the results (points for 3DMarks and fps for Crysis games) and one with the information about it. When was launched, if it has WHQL, PhysX and PhysX driver included, CUDA support, GPGPU folding client, Issues, New Features, Original Products supported (if you have a desktop board and you want to keep the WHQL status active)... and a whole article about what does ForceWare means. For the original Romanian article head on over here the Data is in English For a Google translation just click on the link here Anybody wanting to squeeze every ounce of performance from their rig should take a look. It's a VERY comprehensive driver comparison and most impressively written up (excuse Googles translation in places) Enjoy, and a big thanks to CQSTELUSH :) UPDATE Hey man,Here it is a news I wrote about this, if you could post it... it would be nice: Huge nVIDIA ForceWare drivers comparision database, from co2-solid.ro Good news, all you laptopvideo2go.com visitors! A bunch of hardworking guys started a titanic project, which intends to compare video drivers not only in 3D benchmarks and games but in features and specifications too. So, basically, you have THE place for comparing and choosing drivers (the new ones launched are very fasttested and the database is updated). Here, a small fragment of the english version of the article (the romanian version is available too, so watch out "băieţi"): Windows XP SP3, 32 bit The first table only contains the results of the tests (in points for 3DMark and frames per second for Crysis games), while the second one contains additional information about the driver, as well as the models officially supported in the *.inf (information useful for those who use the results for choosing desktop cards drivers, which have official support and thus, Blu-Ray and WHQL certification active), besides other information like the support for physics (PhysX), CUDA, the folding client for the GPU?and so on. Enjoy! The tests use the drivers we mod, here at laptopvideo2go.com, so its a complementary project which makes ours even better. And from what I have understood, they are finishing the VISTA x86 version of the test as we speak, so if it's not done yet... it will sure be in about a few days, so stay close and watch for the new 185 drivers results, too.
