View Full Version : Driver specific problem with FX5600 (normal)
I have a FX5600.
With 44.71, 45.23 driver, game speed is too slowed.
Only 44.03 is working well.
Details see my posting on page 6:

I'm pretty sure Remy's seen this, don't know if Relic can fix it without authorization from Sierra for a release patch.

I just rolled back my drivers from 45.23 to 44.03 and there was a BIG improvement. I recommend that all FX 5600 owners experiencing low frame rates do it. You should try to spread the word, Uber.
Direct link to nVidia 44.03 driver page:
I think Relic have to insert this information into manual or readme file in game disc. (too late?)
Or must be noticed on HW2 homepage.
And...da... what's happen in 2x and 4x AA problems?
I couldn't get any information about this. OpenGL can do only QAA or 8xAA?
*Other games are worked well with 45.23 driver. (I tested with 'NBA' and 'Rise of nations')
I'm sure a lot of people have seen http://www.3dchipset.com/#361 by now. I have not tried these myself and frankly do not recommend them, especially if you have a system that is working just fine right now.
The reason I don't recommend them is because they aren't official drivers from nVidia. If beta drivers are being leaked then its probably only going to be a very short amount of time until official drivers come out. Unless there is a problem with these drivers, in which case you didn't want them anyway! :)
So, even though everybody will ignore my advice, I urge people to be patient.
In response to this post I'm not sure what is going on with the 5600. Sorry.

Yeah, looks like I'm one of the unfortunate 5600 owners who are having problems with the Homeworld2 demo. In a way it's a relief, since the system I'm using (an Alienware Area-51 with a 3Ghz processor, blah blah blah) is almost as powerful as you can go, and the H2 demo *still* started chugging when it switched to the in-game engine.
I'm not about to download and install beta video drivers, although I do wonder whether "rolling back" my drivers to the earlier version mentioned would be a wise alternative. I certainly don't want to start dinking with my system in such a way that I'd hose it.
What do the Smart People(tm) say?
