We saw the release of the nVidia Forceware 81.84 BETA drivers last month and performance improvements with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 processors was very impressive to say the least. The new drivers really helped begin to make use of that second core we have with the X2 processor.
This month we see the release of the driver officially and we will be comparing the 81.94 against the last official driver, Forceware 78.01.

- Adds support for GeForce 7800 GTX 512 and GeForce 6800 GS
