New (Renamed) NVIDIA Drivers

NVIDIA Introduces ForceWare Release 50 Graphics Driver (thanks Malachii) announces the availability of new reference drivers for NVIDIA accelerators, the drivers carrying a new "ForceWare" moniker to replace the Detonator designation. Word is: "The ForceWare release 50 graphics drivers include the NVIDIA unified compiler technology that translates shader programs so that they are optimized for the NVIDIA GPU architecture, substantially improving the performance of next-generation DirectX 9.0 titles such as HalfLife™ 2, XIII, and more. Performance in the DirectX 9.0 application HaloPC™ improves by up to 58% and DirectX 9.0-based Microsoft Flight Simulator™ 9 improves by 33% ." Currently available only for Win2K/XP, downloads can be found on their Driver Page.

The 5x.xx drivers I have been using (51.75 52.13 and 52.16) all have done wonders for Halo and the Aquamark Bench. Which as far as I know are the only Directx9 apps available to really test these with.

These only really fix the gimpy PS2.0 performance as far as I can tell, games like UT2k3 ad such never ran poorly enough for me to really notice any difrence, but in Halo the difrence is Night and Day.

So users of the ti4200 or ti4600 cards probably wont see much improvement.
