View Full Version : Softquadro4 - best det drivers?

01 January 2003, 11:34 PM
Just wondering what drivers seem to be giving the highest performance with Softquadro4? My rig is going to be running Maya 4.5 & Photoshop 7.0, so im in search of the fastest sq4 drivers at the moment for 3d work.

anyone have any experience with these drivers and sq4? plus if anyone has noticed a huge difference between running softquadro4 in win2k over winxp please let me know (or xp over 2k)


41.09, 42.01 (now supported for sq4, rivatuner 12.1)

Thanks, any info would be great... (note: i have looked in the regarding drivers, just want to see if anyone on this forum has any different results)

my setup is
Athlon XP1800 (overclocked to xp1900)
IBM Deskstar 40gig & Deskstar 20gig
Visiontek Geforce ti4600
Soundblaster Audigy
1 gig of pc2100
Logitech MX300 optical mouse
Wacom 6x8 intuos2

Currently Running Winxp-sp1

your safest bet would be the latest certified drivers by alias wavefront then, the 29.80

I didnīt experienced too much differences between the latest drivers from 40.xx up to 42.xx
I used 40.71 a long time and had no problems at all, the same counts for the 41.09. Iīm running XP with Inventor 6, CATIA and Maya, no problems at all

I checked on alias webpage the 30.82 drivers are now fully supported with maya 4.5..
has anyone tried 30.82 with softquadro4?

Yes, I did, working smooth and rock solid.... if you got GF4 I suggest going with 40.xx and up...but as i told you before itīs not far from reality that you would hav no problems with any other detonator driver as long as your system is set up properly, chipset drivers and stuff...
