Looks like a fair bit of new driver business going on but lets get on with it.


It looks like Microsoft maybe dropping Intel CPU's for AMD ones in their XBOX 2 according to articles at both The Inquirer and The Register. The main reasons seem to be the relationship between AMD and nVidia. But then didn't these stories come up before the original XBOX too?


ATi have a new driver up for the WinXP people out there so head on over and grab the Version / 7.67-020208X-2964C.


VIA Arena has up for download the new VIA 4.38 4 in 1 drivers for you who need them. Updated features are:
- Add ATA133 feature under WinXP
- Update AGP driver (4.10b)
- Fixed Memory dump issue under WinNT (dual-p)
- Fixed AGP driver uninstall issue.


nVidia has released some new Detonators at version 28.32 and you can grab them here for Win9x and here for Win2K/XP.
