Windows XP

The straight line in graphs clearly indicates there's no performance difference.

You can get more information about problems of various NVIDIA drivers at the NVIDIA World website.

Pay attention to the article about anisotropic filtering section.

I shall mark that GeForce3/4 supports new types of antialiasing based on multisampling (MSAA) technology, including noteworthy Quincunx mode (read about it in our GeForce3). ). But it has a serious disadvantage of texture soaping. But we should have already used to trade-offs of modern accelerators. I recommend you to read the GeForce4 Ti article and learn about the new 4xS AA.
