XG 84.12 Nvidia Driver!!

If you have been using the 7x.xx series until now, thinking that most of the 80 series drivers just havn't stood out much, this is the time to upgrade.

The 84.12 is the best driver for Geforce 6 and 7 cards available. Image quality is brilliant, performance has increased, it feels smoother in heavy games such as COD2, Quake 4, and BF2, it is stable, it has no known problems, and is all around the very best driver of the 80 series.

Well, now Daishi and JRd1st from TweaksRUs have released an Xtreme-G modified version of it, and its even better than it was to start with.

Image quality is brilliant. Performance has gone up, and all around it is the best set to date that I have used on a Geforce 6/7.

Very Highly Recommended.

Is it worth it for an old 5500? I only installed the XG Modified 83.90 set the other night.

I installed the newer DX9.0c(Febuary 2006 one) though I have no idea if there is even any difference.

Any feedback from these drivers? I've been sticking with the 77.76_XG drivers for awhile now finding that the 8x.xx series just plain don't work for me. Is it really worth it? Even for my graphics card?

Yea, its worth it. This set has been replaced by the 84.20XG set however, which are better still. Get them in our driver section.

They make a big difference.

Nah I don't believe in modified drivers' ability to increase performance AND image quality at the same time. It's not like the folks at Nvidia have not a clue what they're doing with their drivers is it? Could be just me though...

Nvidia design their drivers to support the greatest number of cards, with compatability with everything at the expense of quality and performance in some cases.

Nvidia always airs on the side of caution. Modified drivers like the XG sets can often go through several betas with problems before release for this reason.

Try it and tell me I'm wrong.

OK I will bench my current 81.94 against this new xg just for you

Then I will pop in the new "oblivion" ones from nV itself.

OK here is the results, the difference in performance between the various drivers being well within what I call "benchstatistical error":

81.94
AquaMark03: 63019
3DMark05: 4166

XG driver
AquaMark03: 62877
3DMark05: 4171

84.24 (the "Oblivion" driver)
AquaMark03: 62569
3DMark05: 4161

I don't know how about others, but in my book this does not translate to a measly one frame per second difference.


Yes I did use DriverCleaner and all the necessary procedures in between the various driver installs.

And yes, based on these and other results from the past I still think this driver-tweaking business is a hoax no matter how many people claim OMGZ MY FRAMERATE WENT UP A GAZZILION FPS AND TEH IQ IS UBAR!!!!111 BST DRIVER YET1111!!!!ONEELEVEN

If you read carefully, I never once said it would increase your performance massively. I said this driver performs better, because of the fact that its BASED on the 84.12, which was brand new when this came out.

Aside from that, Daishi and JR have stated repeatedly that they aim for image quality improvements first and foremost, and performance second. Compare in game IQ.
