    I would say they are both great drivers. Both do a great job. I would say use the one that works best for you on your rig. There both top notch drivers.

    Myself I use the Zeropoint but the XtremeG is very good too.

    :p


    well, both are quite good, as z3r0 said. I personally spend too much time within the zer0points to bring myself to use anythign else :lol: but I do have a great deal of respect for the Xtreme G guys and their work. It's all about choices and giving users the best possible options :)

    I spend too much time working on our drivers to do a head to head comparison however in the past I've used the ExtremeG drivers and always liked them, hell Daishi and JRD1st were one of the inspirations to get into this, I hope either way you go you'd be satisfied as I know both groups put in a lot of effort to make great drivers....

    We really do not work on 3dmark scores as the gaming smoothness speaks for itself.

    Having tried both xtreme g 67.66 and the zer0point 66.97, I will tell you I didn't switch back to the xtreme g 67.66's! :D

    Also, benchmarks dont take into account the IQ improvements in both ZP and XG drivers, I must admit I havent used XG drivers for a while now (Im somewhat "tied" to a certain beta program heheh :D) but they are very good, As are ZP, but a comparsion would be silly. :)

    Nice fence btw, Im staying on it :)

    ....don't make me get the truck/whinch out.....


    but seriously, both are stellar drivers.

    I'm sure I can speak for Daishi/JRd1st as well when I say that so long as we make people happy and they find a driver they like, we've done our job.

    Hehehe! Excellent thread! I have run both the XG's 67.66a and the ZP's 66.97. I am having a tough time deciding which I like the best! They are both great choices. I have a Chaintech 6600 GT.

    I do mostly Flight Sims and FPSers. With VSYNC enabled, my Acer 1912 LCD limits the FR's to 75. I think that system specifics are the key. If I had a CRT capable of higher refresh rates I might find a difference. As it is, I can't see any......

    Salute to both XG and ZP. Great work both!

    I used extreme g's when I firstly got my gf6600gt and everytime I found bug of any sort, I crawl to zeropoints. Once new extreme g was out, I was using again until I found a bug, then back to zeropoints, repeat...

    Then I started using DNA and helped them a bit, but now safely back into zeropoints. My heart flows with the zer0 now.. :) Awesome work!

    Been using Daishi's XG drivers for a few releases and they have been spot on, last ones i had 65. something were good and stable, just a tad on th slow side from his prvious version i had used. Gave the DH ZP's a go lastnight, speed is very nice, but having some issues which i created a thread on. Both are very good, and I have to say with everyone making stellar driver releases gamers and the like should be happy.


    Omega Nvidia/AT
    Unian ATI Catalyst Drivers
    DH ZP drivers
    XG Drivers
    Stationpoint and so on.


    All of you keep up the goodwork. If i left any out, pat yourself on the back, I'm just unable to remember a lot of things right now(stupid Abit IC7-G chipset fan kept me up all night going BBZZTT WRRAARRRR sounds :( )

    can't wait for my swiftech chipset cooler and XP-90 HS to arrive, end my suffering!

    Before the zer0point drivers were around, I used the XG drivers. Haven't gone back since.
