Hi all,

I've got a really annoying problem here.

I was quite happily using v5.3 drivers, but, after seeing the supposed
performance gains some benchmarks showed for the v5.7 drivers on Half Life
2, I gave them a try. The framerate did indeed improve but for some reason
they had an adverse effect on my connection speed. My ping will not go below
190 during a game. When I first connect to a server it would be 60, but
within 30 seconds it will go straight up to 190, playable, but difficult to
kill!

Tried the v5.3 drivers, problem solved! I know the v5.7 drivers are the
problem.

v5.6... same problem
v5.5... same problem
v5.4... success! The newest driver I can use!

I've read the release notes for 5.5, 5.6 and 5.7 and can see nothing related
to my problem.

Has anybody else here had the same problem? Any ideas what can be done? I
don't understand!

Full system specs here, every driver is the latest posssible version for
everything and all software is up to date...

Have you notice that 5.6 vs 5.5 give more blur effect in the distance
of ut2004 " when you look at the center of the screen". vs the 5.5
drier that give less performance in 3dmark05 but give more quality
image in ut2004 in the same place.

That make me say be aware of high score in 3dmark05.
