Hey guys little update on the drivers, just recently the 270.71 surfaced and kindly shared by Open1Your1Eyes0 HERE
. I though it might be a good idea to see how well it does amongst the others.
Well here we go
Metro Benchmark tool
- DX11 - 1920x1080 - Tesselation (enabled) - Very High - AAA - AF16x - No Physx or DOF GPU at 960c/1920s/ 2050m
As you can see hasn't done too badly, came 2nd right after the 268.03 follwed closely by the others.
Lets see how the new driver did in crysis and crysis warhead . GPU @ 870/1740/2050
There is minimal difference between all these drivers, It would be really hard to seperte them. Where some have slighlty higher average frames, the lack in minimum and max frames.
Now Crysis Warhead:
Same thing with Crysis Warhead, no clear winner but atleast the drivers have been consistent. Although improvments are usually anticipated, in older games it is apparent that they make very minimal differences, as this clearly shows that.
I'v kinda scracthed the idea of in game screenshots mostly because some games have impossible locations for the save games and I ususally pass the mark of that screenie. So at the moment I have left Metro 2033 dx10, homefront and crysis 2 (that is still in beta and I havn't finished playing it) Sorry about that guys, but I did add an adittion to the list, Heaven benchamark 2.1. So far from my own conclsion, I have found the best driver is 270.51 so therefore the future heaven benchamarks will carry on from the 270.51.
Heaven benchmark tool 2.1 -GPU @ 870/1740/2050
The difference between these are almost nothing. no improvements only drop in the average fps which caused the min and max frames to drop. The difference is so little that only 1 point seperate the two drivers here. Lets see the all the drivers in action in 3dmark vantage.
Vantage -GPU @ 870/1740/2050
The clear winner here in vantage is the 270.51 followed closely the 270.61. Overall it does seem that there is no clear 'best driver' for me it has been the 270.51 because of the consistancy that it has had. Unfortunatly I have yet to see a improvements over the 270.51 so im sticking to it
Hope you enjoyed the mini review. Suggestions in ways to make this better would be greatly appreciated
