Default comparison test: Forceware 171.16 beta & Forceware 169.25 WHQL

Test Bed:

CPU: Intel Core2 Q6700(OC:10*333MHz)
Mobo: Foxconn P35A-S
GFX: Galaxy GeForce 8800GT 512MB (600/900/1500MHz)
Mem:1GB*2 DDR2
OS: Windows Vista Ultimate。
Driver: NVIDIA Forceware 169.25 WHQL & Forceware 171.16 Beta

It seems not big improvement in the 171.16beta. The only big improvement is Crysis 4XAA. But one frame per second improvement is meaningless. So the average improvement is 0.5% if we omit Crysis 1920×1200 4xAA High. This means 171.16 did not improve any memory access thing - Extra Hardware News Report! » Blog Archive » comparison test: Forceware 171.16 beta & Forceware 169.25 WHQL

I think having 2% improvement on average is better than noting
