    And here it is, what its all about:

    tested on:

  • AMD Athlon 64 3400+
  • ASUS K8V Deluxe
  • 512MB OCZ EL PC3200 (DDR400) SDRAM
  • Driver version ForceWare 61.11
  • Driver version ForceWare 56.72
  • Driver version ATI Beta
  • Driver version CATALYST 4.4
  • 30GB IBM Deskstar DTLA 307030 ATA/100 Hard Drive
  • Windows XP Professional SP1
  • DirectX 9.0b

    And here are the results - the most interesting thing for us...

    Thanks to Firingsquad for testing...

    next few results from

    (AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (L2=1024K) processor // ASUS K8V SE Deluxe motherboard on VIA K8T800 // 1GB DDR SDRAM PC3200 // Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 80GB SATA HDD )

    that's all folks...
