Elsa Gloria III - Drivers

The tests on the Quadro2 Pro chip on the Gloria III were carried out using version 12.10 of the driver. The manufacturer would have had much poorer scores during the test had it supplied the old 7.58 drivers, since this older version was not optimized for use with a Pentium 4 processor. The improvements the new driver makes to the performance is described in the next section.

Customized Maxtreme Driver For 3D Studio Max

In addition to the standard driver, Elsa also offers two special drivers for 3D Studio Max and AutoCad. In the picture, you can see the 3DSM plug-in. We used this plug-in during the benchmark tests for this application because it improves performance considerably.
