60.60 Results

Recommended Posts

We have a talent-contest TV show in the U.S. called "American Idol" with a particularly acidic judge named Simon. Of 60.60, he would likely observe, "You can't sing. You can't dance. Why are you here??"

Driver..........3DMark01..............3DMark03

53.03............6963.....................1335

53.04............6965.....................1332

53.06............6976.....................1333

53.30............6940.....................1335

53.81............6943.....................1337

54.01............6833.....................1307

56.55............6744.....................1306

56.56............6731.....................1304

56.64............6661.....................1277

56.72............6822.....................1308

56.82............6591.....................1271

60.60............6536.....................1190

60.72............6826.....................1253

NOTE: I use a home-grown inf. Pieter's version may perform quite differently.

Machine: Dell Inspirion 5150

BIOS: A33

CPU: 3.06 GHz Pentium 4M (Non HyperThreading)

RAM: 512MB

GPU: Nvidia FX Go5200 w/ 64MB RAM

OS: XP Pro

I agree. I'm using Pieter's inf and I'm got my lowest scores yet. I noticed that there was a lot of stuttering duing the test. The screen would freeze for a split second then resume. Really painful to watch :)

Is 60.60 running any cooler than 56.72?

Some have noticed that 56.63 (mobile driver) is running about 10deg cooler than non Mobile drivers.

Just a thought for those with tempurature tabs.

I didn't notice 60.60 running at any lower temperature.

Just a question: How can drivers cause hardware to run at lower temperatures. Using different drivers desen't change the clock frequecies that the card runs at so how can the temps be different between a mobile driver and a non-mobile driver?

aye29 - in theory that makes sense; however, i noticed ~10c drop in GPU temp as reported by FanGui with the 56.63 drivers over ANY other driver version. Go figure.

The difference between a "mobile" and "non-mobile" aka desktop driver is:

the INF(s) itself (given to us with the driver by OEM or NV).

The rest of the files of one driver version is identical. So there is no real difference, beside the INF, which controls GPU settings. If the temp. is lower in one driver version say 56.63 compared to say 60.72 then it is controlled not by INF, but internally in .sys or .dll files and you can imagine that you can't change say temp settings of these files, unless you are a programmer or sth.

I thought Nvidia actually encrypted that part of it. Thus you can't go in and see things like optimizations for 3dmark and such.

Is this is what is in data1.cab and data2.cab ?

In data1.cab for 60.72 its 1.6MB in 60.60 it's 0.55MB.

data2.cab is 512bytes for both drivers.

What is in these 2 cab files ?

The .CAB files only exist when a setup.exe (InstallShield Setup Launcher) exists, means it is needed for the Setup Routine. The possibility that the .CAB files have temp setting included is 0%... but who knows. The cab files can't be opened for some reason with a cab viewer (TotalCommander or XP). Normally you can open all cab files like zip, cuz they just cab-archived files inside.

The data1.cab can vary hugely in size between drivers.

What could the setup prog need the extra 1.1MB for in certain drivers ?

I wonder if when installing using setup the data1.cab is opened up into a Temp directory?

Or does it contain the wizard for doing the installation in the first place ?

So many questions,

Pieter.

don't know.

But this one sounds possible.
