Nvidia releases third Detonator driver

Offers up to 50 per cent performance boost, company claims

Nvidia has posted its latest version of its multi-product Detonator driver on its Web site.

Detonator 3 "significantly boosting the performance and quality", Nvidia claims, primarily by increasing DirectX 7 and OpenGL game framerates by up to 50 per cent.

In addition, the driver has been optimised for the Pentium 4 and Intel's i815 chipset. DVD and digital TV output have been improved, and support for Nvidia's "new" TwinView technology (what used to be called supporting two monitors), Digital Vibrance Control (what used to be called gamma correction) and anti-aliasing has been added to cards whose chips support them but drivers didn't.

Detonator 3 works with TNT2, GeForce and Quadro graphics chips. You can get Detonator 3 here. ®
