The Detonator 1210 beta drivers are out. I got them over at www.3dchipset.com I installed them last night and they are really working well for me. They also seem faster as well.
On a side note, I'll be moving up to a 1.2 Gigahtz Athlon T-Bird processor. I have already bought it and the motherboard and all I need to do is install it. I am really excited. Any other T-Bird owners care to tell how they like their processors? I'd be very interested to hear. Take care all.
sincerely,

the TNT2 was maxed out by the detonators a while ago...it's still good to upgrade to fix compatibility bugs, though.

I was running the ELSA branded one for a while, these seem no different performance-wise, so they are quite nice.

Well I think I will only update my detonator just to make myself happy................
I am getting a G-Force 2 GTS from Asus after my papers.Because if I buy it now I will really mess up my time on that card:(

So after a month I will have my hand on that damn card.
HEHE;)

I have noticed a small performance increase over the 1200 drivers. The 1210s are very stable and have given no problems at all. So I'll stay w/them. The performance increase came after I upgraded.
I'm now running an Athlon T-Bird 1.2 GHZ, GEForce 2 GTS card, Sound blaster Live Value card, Win 98 First Edition, and 128 megs of PC 133 memory. My mother board is handling the AGP at 4x and the FSB is 266. With all this, the 1210s are giving me better performance than they did.
Very interesting CD about the 1200s being WHQL certified, they are very good drivers. Maybe the 1210s will follow suit soon. I sure hope so:D .

The 12.00s are certified because they will be the next 'official' release from Nvidia...

yepeeeeeeeeeee!

I have got a very big bug fixed just because of changing the detonator from 11 to 12.00

I was playing the PC game Princ3D.It is a great game,when I updated the detonator to 11.00 the keyboard stopped working in this game also some other games also gave me the same problem.Now when I have updated the driver to 12.00 the bug is gone.

I ve seen tests of differents detonator drivers (including the latest 12.10)
It seems that the 10.80 are the best in terms of performance
(in d3d tough, cuz ALL the drivers have good results in OGL
near 1 or 2 fps of difference...)
