    As most of you know, Driverheaven are working with Nvidia closer than ever before and with our upcoming Q&A about to be posted in the next few days, it seems Bryan Del Rizzo, Nvidias PR manager is playing a little tag game with me via email ! I meant to post this last night but I had one too many beers, so I thought it best to wait a little ;)

    <img src="http://www.driverheaven.net/dom/news/nv/NVIDIA_speednth.jpg" width="400" height="193">

    He wont give me too much information on this but what he has told me im not allowed to say, so ill just leave you with this teaser until Nvidia offically announce it (should be in the next 3-4 days from what he says.)

    For those asking about Nvidia NFORCE2 driver support........ Nvidia will also be releasing a new Nforce2 driver soon which ive been testing and it appears to be very nice indeed. This will be released on Tuesday (hopefully), more information will be coming from nvidia when its released.

    What new features/improvements do the new nForce2 drivers have?

    (Oh, and the "Speed N" thing is their integrated OCing device...I'm pretty sure. ;) )

    perhaps SpeedN is the name of the upcoming nForce drive like Catalyst and Detonator?

    yeah, the new drivers for nforce2 and vga cards are comin'...if I was to take a guess I would say 3.5x for nforce and 45.xx for vga cards ;)

    (Btw I just got FX5900 and who says Radeon 9700 2D IQ is better? I have both and FX5900 is a clear winner)

    HEY STRANGER! :D Well met, blessed be, and HOWDY! :D :D

    Yeah, I heard I was wrong about the OCing thing and it's gonna be the new nForce2 drivers named SpeedN coming out soon.

    Good, I got an nForce2 now. ;)

    So you have a 5900, eh? How's the 3d image quality compare? The aa & af?

    Not enough time to tell yet, but I'm not gonna run any benchmarks on it, that's for sure, I only tried REAL WORLD games and so far Postal2, Quake3, Morrowind, Matrix, Hitman2 & lastest Tombraider (man the effects and IQ is just unbelivable) all play better then radeon 9700 and plus I don't have to use dvi adator anymore because suprise suprise - no more SHIMMERING/ROLLING LINES scrolling across my screen anymore (that ATi does not recognise as their fault)...:evil:

    But, too early to tell yet...need more tests...a lot more
