nvidia drivers lowered my win7 x64 score..

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
With the drivers that came with windows 7 X64 home premium, my 3D/Gaming graphics score were 6.9. I installed the latest nvidia drivers for win 7 x64 for my 8800GT from nvidia.com and my score went down to 6.7.

Isn't a whole lot, but it's weird.. I'm curious... maybe windows 7 drivers > nvidia driver..

6.9 is likely just the max score and the generic driver recognized a dedicated card. when you put the correct drivers in and re-ran the test, you get your real score.
