    nVidia drivers 0.93 with Mandrake 7.1 Beta

    Hello !

    I have installed the new nVidia 0.93 Drivers
    and encountered that they are slower than
    the older (0.92) once.

    I just wanted to know if anybody ancountered the same !

    I have tested them with gears (Mesa Demo Package) and Quake 3.#

    Testes on a Athlon 700, TNT 2 Ultra:

    gears (0.92 driver): about 1500fps now(0.93):
    1150fps

    Quake 3 1024*768*16 (everything on Maximum)
    0.92 about 37 fps
    0.93 about 31,5 fps

    thx for any help !

    njet...

    0.93 is as fast as the previous versions...

    i have an athlon 600 with geforce ddr and i get ~60 fps at quake3 with everything turned to max...

    Actually, I gained 10 FPS in Quake 3 using the updated drives. SMP mode shows absolutely NO gain in FPS (tried various combos of settings, no-go).

    System:
    Dual 466 (no O/C) Celeron on BP6
    128MB RAM
    NVIDIA TNT2 M64 (32MB RAM) AGP4X used at 2X

    .92 drivers gave 37 FPS (no r_smp)
    .93 drives gave 52 FPS (no r_smp)

    oops, one more thing: i'm using everything max, but with a resolution of only 800x600 (not 1024x768)
