Reviewing 77.72 WHQL Official (Dec 22, 2005)
These drivers that are found on the nVidia download page have not changed for some time. However, if you go to the FTP site:
You will see that there are 81.98 drivers for Windows 9X machines!

finally an excellant one!
Reviewing 41.09 (Jan 2, 2003)
my old agfa scanner 1212p(newest driver) from 2001 doesn't work with 40** and 4109 (2942 does)
Reviewing 40.72 (Nov 11, 2002)
Don't get me wrong, these drivers are still on the cutting edge of technology, but I saw a small loss of performance on my 3Dmark benchmarks. Not much, but not a 25% gain as claimed either. Perhaps they are making this claim based on benchmarks against the standard OEM drivers that came with the card because I could definitely see a 25% improvement there. These drivers are worthy of a 5 star rating as far as their overall quality, but they are not a necessary upgrade. The largest improvement I have seen over my previous 29.42 drivers would be the user interface in the configuration page of the display properties. Overall a good driver, but I would have waited longer before bothering to release it.

Is it just me, or do they claim "Up to 25% preformance increase" in *every* release? Hell if that's true by now the cards are 10-20 faster then they were when they were first released, just due to the drivers.
