My SuperPi time was 15.250 before and 15.175 after (incidentally 15.75 without ANY chipsetdrivers /between installs).

You can decide whether that warrants the 2 minutes to change them .Them do seem to offer a tiny improvement so why not .New Direct X update seems to offer a lot more though ...

downloaded and installed, nice results on the black death track, gave me +3 min fps, and +5 max fps.

I lost all my game profiles with these drivers on XP.

Text is also a bit blurry.

Graphics slightly better w/IL-2 though and the ground appears to be moving or has more life to it.
Maybe I just didnt notice this before.

Chris0382 - check that your resolution matches what your monitor wants both in windows and in IL2's conf.ini.

SuperPi is a benchmark that shows how long it takes your pc to calculate Pi out to a set number of digits. Most people set it to 1M, that is to say 1 million digits of pi.

Actually Nvidia has removed these XP drivers and has reverted back to .16. I'll definitly wait next time before downloading and assuming newer is better. What a mistake for me to load these for my system.

The NVIDIA forum has all the issues discussed.

Acronis True Image to the rescue....
