I just installed these and tried photoshop CS4 and it is a lot faster than any other drivers on my system. Great IQ too. It could be the new version of opengl

No games yet have not had time, but due advise to try these out!

already posted the link here yesterday , modded the inf and they work fine on my laptop. Would've posted it under news but I guess you gotta be a mod.

btw those dell's never did work right, I got a pause at the welcome screen on every boot.

Hi all, I have installed this driver on my laptop, and works fine. A little bit better than 197.13, windows experience increase 0.1 on 3d games evaluation. Bye

PD: Metro 2033 increase 5-7 fps at 800x600.
