Do New Drivers Really Boost Performance? : Madness And Myth, Or Hidden Performance? - Tom's Hardware
a article about ati, and nvidia drivers. seems at drivers dont often lead to a performence boost where as the nvidia drivers often do. it alos showed that the average percent increase in gpu speed when a cpu is over clocked is about 10% for both parties. alltho there over clock was only to 3.4.
after hearing this id like to see newer reviews of lets say the core 216 gtx 260 vs the hd4870. as on average its only gained about 0.4 % icnrease where as the gtx280( im guessing the 260 has similar results) are about 5/6% with new driver releases, cant wait to see what they do with bigbang II
