As we mentioned in the introduction, we have moved the test system from the ASUS A8N-SLI to the BFG nForce 4 Ultra motherboard and we have also moved from the Radeon X700PRO to the faster and more powerful GeCube X850XT.
Since we have made changes in the test setup, we have thrown in the 5.2s so you get a better idea of performance between the old drivers, the set we missed and the new drivers.
Version and / or Patch Used: Build 330 SE

3DMark2001 SE is a part of the popular 3DMark series. By combining DirectX 8.1 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce4), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments.
We see that there is really no difference between all sets of drivers.
