Xtreme-G 180.70 Graphic Driver Tested Using (mostly) Freeware Benchmark Software

I did a driver update for my low profile video card days ago. The Xtreme-G 180.70 churned out a better overall framerate than its predecessor in F.E.A.R. (framerates below the 25 FPS mark has decreased by 3% from 21 to 18%.). The IQ with this graphic driver for GeForce GPUs is nothing to write home about however.

The results of the benchmark tests (using a 512Mb video card --- albeit a low-end one) can be found HERE.

Hello! Thanks for the comment and the information; it's very helpful. I'll register this weekend mayhap.

Glad to know you like my articles; they're mostly about tweaks, PC news, graphic drivers and shooter games. ('Used to be an RPG nut but what with the work, I have to settle for quick 30- to 1-hour gaming fixes that only first-person shooters can provide.)
