IntroductionWord has been floating around the big cyber town we call the internet that the new WHQL drivers were going to give some much needed performance increases to the just launched GTX 200 series of cards.We figured that graphs speak louder than words, so today we took the time to test the new drivers under XP and Vista across a range of benchmarks on our ZOTAC GTX 280. I've decided that although there are new Catalyst drivers available for me to test, people would be more excited to see what NVIDIA can do to (hopefully) squeeze more performance out of the GTX 200 cards. I'm in anticipation of seeing some nice increases today, as I'm sure everyone else reading this is too. We will have our latest Catalyst performance article online within the next couple days.While a lot of sites have loved the GTX 200 series of cards, they don't seem to completely understand what's going on in the AMD camp. I can honestly say that NVIDIA need the GTX 280 to get a speed bump, or gamers may be flocking to AMD for their graphics card sooner rather than later.
