Yes. There have been several new versions of the 4in1's released since XP was released, so the latest versions will be significantly newer.

Definitely, especially if you have a GF 4 and an Abit KD7. I was recently having problems with 3DMark2001, and several of my games. They would either lock up, crash, or just kind of stutter. I installed the new 4-in1 Drivers today, and I have had no problems with any of my games, and it increased my 3DMark2001 score by 3000+ points.

I agree with slowburn, I notice the same thing with kt4v/ti4200 getting 2500 more in 3dmark2001 with 4in1/ 443 installed.
