Hi HellasVagabond! ":O}

Really appreciate your efforts to keep us current and updated!

I wonder if I might further impose upon you and ask that you upload new files to AOA Files? If your connection isn't up to it I understand!

Good to have you here!

It does indeed help AOA! Right now AOA Files is paying for a good deal of our expenses. Helping to keep our files fresh is largely why people choose us. Uploading them here helps to increase traffic and traffic helps our little world go round...Thank you! It would indeed be a service.

Thumbs up

Thanks HV for pointing out that the new (Non Beta) drivers had been released!!!

I didn't take the time to do a bunch of benchmark results for the new drivers. Just on the one game I have that's the most demanding on my system.
Crysis...Up from 63 FPS to almost 68, so a decent performance increase with the drivers on 32bit XP.
Keep in mind I've also downclocked my system from 3.34Ghz when I got 63 FPS and still got better FPS after the new driver...

Run #1- DX9 1400x960 AA=No AA, 32 bit test, Quality: Medium ~~ Overall Average FPS: 67.82
