What a difference drivers can make!
These are 3Dmark 2001 Default scores.
I knew the right drivers could improve performance, but this shocked me, the last score is a huge improvement over the first.
I'm anxious to see what happens with the Det. 4's
GeForce2 MX400 (core 237Mhz Mem 183)
2250 VIA 4.30 And Drivers that came with the card
2495 4.30 and 12.41
2875 4.32 and 12.41
3114 4.32 and 12.90
Wow! Almost a thousand point differnce!!!
What type of mobo do you have?
I might try those Via 4 in 1 new drivers as it seems they really helped you!
My mobo is an FIC az11e. 3dMark 2000 only increased slightly and Quake 3 stayed the same.
Well, it coz both 3DMark2001 and det 12.90 are DX8 optimized. I use 12.90 myself, waiting for det4 (20.80 ?) release ...
Best Regards ...
