NVIDIA Forceware 180: Just more of the same?

Posted on Wednesday, November 26 2008 @ 00:50:10 CET by

Legion Hardware tested the new ForceWare 180 driver from NVIDIA.
Today we are doing a simple kind of article that compares the performance of Nvidia’s latest driver, using the increasingly popular GeForce GTX 260 (216SP) graphics card, against a much older driver. The new Forceware 180.70 driver is creating a bit of commotion due to various claims that insist it delivers much more performance, so we want to find out if it really does...

Last week when the Forceware 180.43 drivers trickled onto the scene quite a few people made a really big deal out of them, we suspect with a little prodding from Nvidia. Still it interested us enough to investigate, but as it turns out there is nothing all that interesting to be seen. When comparing the Forceware 180.43 driver to the four month old 177.79 version we found almost no difference in performance.
Check it out over here.
