boltsink2303 Posted October 5, 2007 Share Posted October 5, 2007 I recently installed the new version of drivers for my video card. The new version is Version: 163.71 WHQL. The previous version is Version: 93.71. Both of these versions are the GeForce 7 nvidia series. I have an AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3800+. My video card is GeForce 7600 GT OC. I'm running 1GB 3200 OCZ memory sticks. I'm only running 32 bit Windows XP. I recently tested both versions on pc pitstop, which I use very frequently. The site has never let me down. The 93.71 drivers scored 408 which beat out almost all of the systems I compared with. Then I installed the new drivers, the 163.71 version, and it only scored a 93. It slowed my system down so much that it wouldn't even run properly. If any one has any answers as to why this is, I would love to hear it. Because usually new drivers are supposed to be the better and faster drivers. I changed back to the 93.71 version because it obviously smokes the new version, but I'm still curious as to why these new drivers are slower than the old drivers. Thanks in advance.
