Faster than what? The next most recent Detonator 40.xx? I haven't seen any talk about this new driver, and I'm sure a 25% boost would have the whole board jumping. Heck, that'd top a 9700 Pro for non-AA at 1024x768. I'm about to install them on my GF3 Ti200 (1800XP+,Samsung 256MB DDR333, Epox 8KHA+) and if my scores fly through the roof I'll be sure and let everyone know what they probably know already. I have to bet that with the recent leak of D3A Nvidia will craftily tweak their drivers to maximize performance. Could an ATI owner give me some idea of how well the driver updates have gone with their 9000/9700's? I'm leaning toward a 9700 when the NV30 hopefully pushes the pricepoint down around $200, and would like to know just how many of the kinks have been worked out. Not that they are a buggy mess, I understand that, but I did see a few issues posted. Thanks!
