AMD sent another great CPU for test purposes. Its actually a 1.2 GHz Athlon that is designed for a 133 MHz CPU bus - but at the standard 100 MHz FSB it becomes an Athlon 900. I think that is more representative of what a lot of people will be buying/using soon so I decided to go with that speed instead. Right after I did all my initial testing the 6.50 drivers were officially released so I had to repeat the tests. We had been using the 6.31 drivers for so long I was beginning to wonder if the purchase of 3dfx had made nVidia step down the release schedule of new drivers for a while.
