Краткое содержание статьи: With the launch of NVIDIA's latest 3D chipset, the GeForce2 Ultra, came the Detonator 3 series of driver. Incredible gains are being claimed with this driver over the previous generation of Detonator driver. We explore where these magical gains come from and just how much they help. Is the new driver a true engineering accomplishment or just marketing hype?

TwinView Broken?

Another interesting thing in this new driver is the fact that TwinView is now functional. Unfortunately, early on I was without a GF2 MX board with multiple video outputs to find out that TwinView wasn't available before the Detonator 3 driver. However, during one of my conversations with a couple of the big board manufacturers, they were quick to make sure I knew that the TwinView feature wouldn't be available on their boards until NVIDIA had it working properly in the reference drivers. I was a bit shocked until I tried one of my newer GF2 MX boards to find out that this was all true. The Detonator 3 driver did indeed fix this problem and I was able to play around with spanning mode (virtual desktop type mode) and clone mode (have the same output on both devices). I would say this is one of the most important fixes in this driver.

Driver Interface

The driver interface has had some changes in both functionality and appearance. Let's take a peek.

NVIDIA information screen

This has remained basically the same. The screen provides you with general system information from the driver to the graphic board configuration.

Video output controls

If you have the video out capabilities, the controls will be here. This feature also remains the same.
