Anyone have any reviews of the 45.23 Detonator Drivers from Nvidia?

well, personal review is good but it needs to provide a bit more info than that one. I heard that Nvidia is supposed to 'fix' their 'optimization' 'problems' with these sets of drivers. I also heard that 3dmark03 scores will drop if that happens.

What nvidia did was do a house clearing of the newer drivers to fix little things (pest)of the past drivers they did.Example diver support for none FX cards that showed a warning for certification from MS.Also helped the the newer cards work with certain games.one other thing they fixed on none FX cards was placed a color tab in display with out going through nv-view side to ajust the color and gamma,well on my card anyway.Thx you nvidia for that color tab fix.If you want a complete benchmark for 45.23 driver I don't know where you will find it,sorry I couldn't do better.I don't think there will be much diff,s in the benchmarks of new to the latest driver test.

I find the 45.23 driver to very good in game play,that darn benchmark don't mean squat now sense the big bubble brust.You get what you get,I bet if you use the 44.03,s and do a frame rate test of your game,you want see any diff,s to the 45.23.BTW 600 benchmark points = a pennies worth of nothing in a real game.
