NVIDIA Forceware 163.44 Beta Drivers For Bioshock

Posted on Friday, September 07 2007 @ 04:07:18 CEST by

NVIDIA recently released Forceware 163.44 beta that offer improved support for the game BioShock and we take a look at them to see if performance really improved since previous drivers. Using the full retail version of BioShock we benchmark the game using FRAPS on Forceware 158.18, 162.22 and 163.44 drivers on an XFX GeForce 8800 Ultra graphics card and found that these drivers offer significant frame rate increases!

"After running circles for three sets of two minutes on each driver we came up a bit dizzy, but the results were able to show impressive driver improvement over the months before BIOSHOCK was released. The Forceware 163.44 Beta drivers are clearly in the lead and while they didn't double the performance level versus the Forceware 158.18 drivers they came close. Just by updating the video card drivers we were able to pick up 34 frames per second, which is a 69.4% performance improvement!"
