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):

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

thx for any help !

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).

Dual 466 (no O/C) Celeron on BP6
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)
