Don't hold your breath. They're telling everyone to go back to the 71.84's. That ain't gonna happen on my rig.

Lead Pursuit. The overwhelming response was "I ain't going back to old drivers, how bout fixing the game".

 

So true, while they're at it fix the multiple controller issues. Ill give the new betas a whirl today and post my results.

Be back later.'

cheers

version 77.76 rocks my world. version 80.40 heard some bad rap on the guru3d forum. So aint sure, I dont dare to try it, until the majority on their forum says its worth it. Unless you lomac flyers dare to try it....

 

If you do, keep us informed on its performances.

 

Cheers

I dared and lost!

 

Hey,

 

Here are my results for the 80.40beta drivers.

 

Lockon 1.1 (max settings water=med no mirrors)

 

77.76 A-10 Trackir 1600*1200 (4aa 16af) = 22.46

77.76 A-10 Trackir 1280*1024 (4aa 16af) = 27.73

80.40 A-10 Trackir 1600*1200 (4aa 16af) = 22.28

80.40 A-10 Trackir 1280*1024 (4aa 16af) = 27.55

77.76 A-10 CAS 1600*1200 (4aa 16af) = 31.07

77.76 A-10 CAS 1280*1024 (4aa 16af) = 37.30

80.40 A-10 CAS 1600*1200 (4aa 16af) = 30.93

80.40 A-10 CAS 1280*1024 (4aa 16af) = 37.16 (Graphical errors on all 80.40, flickering objects, and some object skins disapeared.)

77.77 A-10 CAS1600*1200 (4aa 16af) = 30.56

 

Pacific Fighters (Max settings water=2, forest=2 on the black death track)

77.76 1600*1200 4aa 16af = 16.18

77.76 1024*768 4aa 16af = 28.59

80.40 1600*1200 4aa 16af = 17.12

80.40 1024*768 4aa 16af = 29.61

77.77 1600*1200 4AA 16AF= 16.91

No graphical errors and an increase of about 1fps in each test for 80.40 drivers

 

Farcry 1600*1200 4aa 16af ultra settings

77.76 Steam benchmark 26.18

80.40 Steam Benchmark 25.93

 

So really no difference in FPS for lockon between 77.76 and 80.40 but i had errors as discribed above.

IL-2 showed good increase of 1fps over all test, with no errors.

Minimal decrease in farcry, and also i noted some weird shaddows in 77.76 had gone with the 80.40 drivers. Because of the glitchs in 80.40 i tried the new 77.77 officials and a half a FPS loss resulted when comparing the new 77.77 to the 77.76beta drivers. No errors encounted with the new officials. PF also had slightly less gain over the 77.76 but still a reasonable amount.

 

Using 80.40 with Falcon 4:AF didn't solve the issue of aa and only being able to click half the cockpit

 

I think i will stay with the new 77.77 official drivers for the time being. Don't bother with the 80.40 drivers unless you don't play 1.1, be then you wouldn't be here!

Also the 80.40beta notes indicate support for the G72 chip???? Anyone know what this is?

Thanks Nate Dogg. You went above and beyond the call of duty. And saved me from installing the 80.40s.

 

I've seen a little about the support for the new chip but haven't heard what it is. Probably something they are preparing to release around the time the R520 is released.
