We look at the first GTX 200 WHQL drivers from NVIDIA which have been rumored to increase performance.

Final Thoughts

 

Well, that wasn't anywhere near as exciting as I had hoped. Spec wise, it seemed extremely possible that we could expect an increase in performance from the GTX 280, but clearly that didn't happen. I don't doubt for a second over the coming months NVIDIA will release new drivers that increase the performance of the new GTX 200 series of cards, but this isn't it.

 

We will be keeping up with the performance of the GTX 280 and the driver development over the coming months to see what NVIDIA pull out of the hat. While I would normally write some long winded final thoughts about the drivers, I'm going to wrap it up quickly because I just got word that the NDA for the HD 4850 has been bought forward.

 

So let's wrap this up nice and quick. The GTX 280 is still disappointing me and I'm mega excited about the HD 4850. The End! - Look out for our HD 4850 content in the coming hours!
