NVIDIA New Reference Driver 12.xx More Power For Pentium 4?

Quake 3 Arena

The last 3D game benchmark in this article is Quake 3 Arena, which is too old to be a significant test for 3D-card performance anymore. You can still see that Pentium 4 is gaining a tiny bit, while Athlon is losing a few frames per second with driver release 12.10.

Things are more obvious when using the NV15-demo. While Athlon is only gaining very little, Pentium 4 scores 3.2 fps higher with driver revision 12.10 than with driver revision 6.67. Pentium 4 is able to benefit from the new driver once more.
