Yup...got it already. Thanks zam. In my opinion, my games look better (especially RalliSport Challenge), however, games ran slower
It isn't playing nice with my setup. guess I'll roll it back and try the next upgrade.
I haven't installed them yet, right now I'm using the 40.71s, later on today I'll get them in the system and do some benchmarks.
I got them installed yesterday,seem to be all good so far,haven't ran any bench tests though
I got the 40.72 drivers up and running with some improvements in benchmarks. 3dMark went up by 80 pts, but the most significant improvements were with the single/multi Texturing fill rate tests. The polygon and shaders test also showed some improvement and a significant gain in point sprites.
As far as OpenGL goes, I ran Vulpine GLmark with no changes recorded from the 40.71 set I had been using. Overall, they look good on my system but I need to play some games and use them for a couple of days to see if any problems occur. So far, so good.
