Nvidia Detonator 45.23 Driver Download Install Update
Return to General Old Hardware. Users browsing this forum: Baidu [Spider] , Fagear and 12 guests. The nVidia website has old drivers dating back to about I would like to test various driver versions, to see which gives the best performance.
Can someone recommend an old detonator driver I could try, and where to get it from please? Image below is random photo taken from the net. I'll take a pic of mine tomorrow You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. I can't remember the reasons why I picked them, but those are the ones I have archived for that card, anyway, and I don't think I would've kept 'em if they had sucked. I'm going to test all of these versions mentioned.
Recently, I bought a year's basic membership on DriverGuide. I'm testing lots of junk at the moment, and so it's been useful. Also, I did a search on that site for these "text strings", and found downloads for all of them, although I haven't tested them yet I bought a year's basic membership on DriverGuide.
Whats missing in your collections? My retro rigs old topic Interesting Vogons threads links to Vogonswiki Report spammers here! Basically that one was the goldmine for TNT2 users. Any newer reference drivers would cause some minor but still annoying issues in both games and my Windows desktop.
My card Diamond Viper V Ultra may have had something to do with it, as the board itself is based off a completely different design from the reference one. But anyways it seemed newer drivers didn't give me any reasonable performance gains anyway. It'd be interesting to see if there's any major differences with the "much newer" drivers. I'll be ready with my benchmark results today. It shows some interesting results. So far, I'm getting better results with the later versions.
I'm testing 21 different versions, so it's taking a bit of time. Very quick snapshot of 3DMark 99 Max test results: After every test in the benchmark results table seen below, I ran DriverCleaner 2. I also rebooted the machine between each test. The test machine is: So many of my TNT2 cards are bit!
Example benchmark result This is an "example" screenshot, using the oldest driver, version 1. PowerStrip, shows overclocked settings PowerStrip 2. That's for the core, and for the memory. Those results are interesting. Something is being optimized there. It might be affected by NV's image quality reduction hacks to speed up their later cards. It's also possible that 3DMark99 got some serious NV attention and is not representative of anything due to extreme optimizations. I suggest using a game.
Something that provides low as well as high framerate results. I'll benchmark 'em when they arrive! You mean the cheat they applied to make your FX Ultra appear faster than it really was in 3DMark03? I have looked on google, and every website says the same thing: However, this doesn't do anything.
Occasionally, after stopping and starting the demos many times, and as if by random, I sometimes see the FPS stats that I am looking for. I installed the patch. You'll have to search for the same, because I can't link to the download directly on that "patches scrolls" site.
I spoke too soon. I haven't solved this problem. It worked above, because of a random coincidence. I still don't know how to run the benchmark for Serious Sam.
Any ideas please people? I have solved the benchmarking problem. I have discovered a convoluted series of keystrokes that ensures that the benchmarking works. Now I've got it working, I will continue with my benchmark tests Upgrading from driver 2.
So it's not true hardware AA, and even then, the performance decrease from enabling it isn't really worth it. I'm not sure starting with what driver version that this feature was taken out though.
It doesn't work like the full screen supersampling varieties that showed up with Geforce and Voodoo5. It also isn't multisamping so it can't be forced like that. Edge AA wasn't popular because I think it is difficult to get working properly and it doesn't antialias polygons in all situations like intersections.
I think I've got a few dozen of them flying around somewhere. Board index All times are UTC. This site hosts no abandonware. There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA.
