XP Vista and Windows 7 all there.


These drivers raised my Far Cry 2 frames dramatically:

Avg: 94 Max:142 Min:63

Up from: Avg: 62 max:104 Min: 44

Ranch Small, 3 loops. 1920x1200, 4XAA DX10, everything on ultra high.


These drivers also are supposed to raise fps in other titles such as crysis, and World in Conflict.

Download em and go have some fun.

No not possible how can you get a max od 142 frames and a min of 63 when 3 280s get a max of 70 and a min of 30 at the same res and 8xaa? I not trying these i dont trust this guy...

First of all, show me where you get that info, it seems awfully low for a tri-sli setup. Secondly, I am not using 8XAA, just 4X. Thirdly, my scores are legit, and the drivers are also legit, no virus or anything. BTW I did not upload the drivers, I am just linking to a site that did.

It was a vid on youtube, dont remember exact video, but the guy showed the system and him playing and the fraps counter in the corner. Now i dont think 8xaa and fraps would lower the max framerate 80 fps.
 
They made the claims. And they are legit. I have em, but dont have CF, so I dont see those kinda numbers
Im thinking theyve fixed the multi threading thru to the cpu/gpu connection with these drivers, plus other things.
Theyre trying to kick start DX11 and their new cards, along with W7 and the i5 releases

haha no problem dude, I did get crysis fps boost, but only a few.

And for the past 10 minutes I've been re-running the FC2 benchmarks, and taking screen shots to help prove my innocence, oh well I'll post them anyways, these really are incredible numbers! Have a Look:


In case you can't access the photo, the avg. went up to 98 , minimum 65 and max of 146.

You bring up an intersting point, and I would like to say that for the first time ever with FC2, my quad core cpu is running at 80-90% during the benchmark, I currently have it at a very slight 3.5Ghz OC, I wonder if the increases would continue if I put it back up to 3.8-3.9
 
For sarges confidence

Its official all right

Thats the rumor. Im trying to fidure out how, but remember all those other disappointing drivers increases? maybe they were saving up for this?
Its all timing
