    Well first of all my name is raptora12. Those of you who know me do not worry I have a dictionary.This article is not to criticise either omega or cyborg or thier work in any way.I just want to show you they are both experts at what they do.so the best thing is to give you some figures and let you decide.

    my rig
    msi 6330
    athlon t-bird 1000 mhz
    768mb sdr ram
    hd80gb eide ata 100 7200rpm western digital
    hd30gb eide ata 100 5600rpm western digital
    sound blaster audigy
    retail 8500 275/275
    19" mitsubishi diamondtron
    agp x4,aperture=128mb
    no overclocking

    all tests run at 1024x768 ,32bit ,100hz
    both these drivers failed cpu test in 3dmark 2000,the x43se set had banding across water in code creatures with 4xfsaa and 16x aniso.

    Dronez :no fsaa ,no aniso. :4xfsaa,16xaniso.

    I like the x43se driver

    IT did not crash and it balanced fast ogl performance with fast d3d.IT seems the x1.0.71 is more ogl orientated.Although there was less blurriness with the x1.0.71 while useing fsaa and anisotropic filtering.Though the x1.0.71 suffers in speed with the 32 z-buffer,opposed to the 24-z buffer in the x43se.There was also banding in Code Creatures on the pond scene with the x43se set.So I would have to conclude the x1.0.71 more stable.
