The latest version of, unofficially released, Nvidia drivers have had a grand impact on the performance of the Pentium 4 processor. Some users have reported an up to 90% increase.

More specific results claim a 90% performance increase in business applications under OpenGL (using SpecViewPerf to benchmark) with a Pentium 4 CPU. Game performance however, was not reported to show any change.

Such changes are to be expected since the lack of optimization for the Pentium 4 processor has been stressed again and again.

Nvidia had also made an announcement, at the GeForce 3 launch that they were planning to offer two sets of optimized drivers covering both Pentium and Athlon processors. It could be that these leaked drivers are early versions of the pentium optimized set.

The reported results were gained by using the 12.00 version of the drivers. Since then version 12.10 was also leaked. We are offering both for download so let us know how your pc does with the newer version.

Well - The P4 is a bag of shit I wont be buying one - me athlon 1.4ghz is fast enough for me. And annoymous is right - its the geforce 3 that kicks ass! And before you intel twats start giving it - wait for the athlon optimised drivers eh? I was once an intel boy but I moved to better things - long live the athlon!

I own one of the Pentium 4 Processors, as well as an AMD 1.33Ghz DDRThese new drivers totally screwed my Pentium 4, white dots appear whenever I try and run a DVD and games... oh boy the graphics are screwed.I use the P4 for games that are processor intensive, and the AMD for everything else. Needless to say I use the 1.33Ghz DDR more often, as its coupled with a 64MB Video Card and 712MB DDR SD-RAM.

for the record a 2Ghz overclocked 1.7 P4 kicks the crap out of a 1.5 GHz overclocked 1.333Ghz Athlon.the question is if Intel's new architecture does anything to help the GPU throw data around or something similar.oh, and AMD still sucks. the only difrence is that Intel is curently caught in a position that they are in between radicly difrent architectures and AMD is taking advantage. i just want to see if AMD is going to do something similer that Intel did so that they can take advantage of their forcing more proper coding.

You Pro-Intel people are morons, "Uhhhh yeah I'll overclock my brand new 1.7Ghz so I can get to 2.0Ghz and effectivly shorten the life-span of my processor".There is no point in overclocking todays Top-Generation Processors, unless you want to throw it in the trash in 6-12 months.

If your all wondering why P4 supporters are so defensive, its because they've paid through the teeth for an underperforming, marketing ploy, which you will not be able to upgrade by the end of the year without a new motherboard.more money then sense I think

NVidia Loves Intel

bollox, The P4 is a fast processors, and people saying you need a new motherbroad at the end of the end are talking shit.That story has been the rounds for the last 8 months!!!!

NVidia Loves Intel

Sure the P4 is fast.... the P3 is fast.... the Duron is fast.... the Celeron is fast.... what the f**k is your point? And yes you need a Custom Tower, an updated Motherboard and RD-RAM to even get the P4 running, its a load of f**king bullshit just like everything else the Intel company have done since they reached 1Ghz Blow it out your ass for all I care

Hey!, I´m glad that these new drivers, could help P4 users to improve their performance.I have an AMD, and I´M GLAD.And I´ll tell you why. Because if somebody has an Intel P4 processor and he/she likes it... it´s ok for me.Every person has an option I YOU have to RESPECT that.I would not say that anybody is stupid for buying an Intel. P4 is fast an expensive, but if you have money... why not?.I don´t like the processor because it depends a lot of optimized code, but... hey! it´s Intel... they´ll sure optimize the programs for it.So, the same way I expect that anybody will say to me: "Hey! looser, throw away your Thunderbird, buy a P4" (no way). I would not tell the same to anybody.Do you understand?And by the way, all this AMD-Intel war is good for us, but let THEM fight it.

u intel people are blinded by you own ignorance. MANY people have performed tests with P4 1.7 Ghz and a Athlon 1.3 Ghz processors. guess what the 1.7 and 1.3 Ghz doesent really mean any thing to speed now its just how they are saying what the processor frequency is at.in the TESTS the P4 got WHOOPED by the ATHLON yes the 1.3 BEAT the 1.7 Ghz processor in EVERYTHING. GAMING, BUSINESS APPLICATIONS EVEN CRAP ON THE INTERNET!!!! YOU ARE ALL f**kING IDIOTS ANY WAY THIS IS REALLY ABOUT A f**kING VIDEOCARD YOU ARE ALL f**kING STUPID EAT MY f**kING COK YOU SHIT FACED c**k MASTER GET A REAL LIFE!!!!SHIT!!!!

NVidia Loves Intel

HAHAHAHA well the P4 sux and it is a temporary cpu therefore a now P4 will come out at the end of the year i will never buy INTEL since i saw the power in my AMD 1.4 o/c it can whoop any cpus ass

NVidia Loves Intel

hey CALEB dude....what happened when you overclocked your P4 to 1.9Ghz? BOOOOOOM!!!?!?!?Face it you silly goons, AMD will kick ass hands down. I bet Intel must be really pissed about the chip so they had to call Nvidia to the rescue. Hmm....also,I'm more interestd in the NV30 right now rather than GeForce 3. cause too many Geforces don't always make a right, right?

NVidia Loves Intel

I DON'T HATE INTEL... BUT???????...YUP, P4 CAME WITH NOTHING, EXCEPT MORE MONEY TO BURN!!!!.....WAIT FOR NEXT INTEL PROC, 'N I NEVER LOVE INTEL TILL THEY LOWER THE PRICE.............INTEL PRICE S@CK~~~~~~~~P4 SICK~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~AMD VICTORIOUS..............

According to recent tests, the AMD Athlon 1.3ghz is far supperior to the Pentium 4 1.5ghz, and the AMD Duron (AMD's low budget processor), is better the pentium 3's... and Intel's Celeron is the bigest piece of crap, out of all of of them...My point? Intel is overpriced, bitchy-ass piece of crap...

God this card is out of date wtf u all talking about geforce 3 and sh!t.. it sucks.. the most powerful video card is "Oxygen" 128mb ram 256-bit graphic not like some baby 64-bit 128-bit.. and is not $550 is $1999.00 for this shit.. much more better then some girly video card like nvidia.. all your nvidia base are Oxygen... Here is where u could see it [url removed]

Man u guys are very retarted. If u noticed how many uncompatibility issues the AMd Athlon has... Damn the other day i was playing Max Payne on an AMD 1.4 Ghz, 256 DDR Ram, Radion 64 Mb, and i kept getting errors just starting the fukkin game. When it did start running the game ran at a shtty 20 FPs with a bunch of errors like dissapearing polygons. On my new DELL P4 1.3 Ghz with a GeForce 2 MX AGP i get 60Fps constant with no errors at all. All my compiling is way faster and with less errors. I know that games depend on a good video card but when the Proccessor can't even exit the game without crashing then u know that that proccessor sucks. Now AMD is fast if u want to play shtty 2d games. I bought a P4 because of the new architecture that will allow faster clock speeds and less heat. And most important all INTEL products are compatible with more products then AMD and are very stable. Trust me i used to love AMD but instead i returned the AMD i bought one month ago and ordered this awesome P4 the smartest thing i have ever done.

Intel are idiots, NVidia are idiotsintel's downfall is they keep putting out half baked chips, the only thing that saves there arse's are the quility of there motherboardsand Nvidia thinks they can speed up things by using more instructions sets and insane ram and chip speedsNvidia brought out 3dfx, why arent they useing glide (glide is a hell of a lot simpler to program in so it will make game devoplers happy, and why dont they add tile based rendering to save bandwidth, the kyro (povervr chipset) runs less than half the clicks that the geforce2 runs at and beats it in some areasand even looks visually better tooand i know what I'm talking about cause I've got a geforce2 pro a kyro and a voodoo5 and the not so hot intel P4, and to be honest i use my AMD 1.33MHz TBird more, faster in desktop appz and devlopment interfacesas for AMD, there only downfall is not the compatiblity but the motherboard chipsets (VIA chipsets sux, and AMD still has a long way to go, sadly VIA has more of a clue than AMD)

(sic)nessmaxpayne always crashes on the Radion, no match for the geforce2 mxso dont think its a amd thingI'm sure u will run into the crash problem even if the radion was on a intel system
