    Comments regarding hardware

    Hello Everyone,

    i bought an NVIDIA GT 430 card. i tested out the following:

    GL_RENDERER: GeForce GT 430/PCI/SSE2
    GL_VERSION: 4.1.0

    Are there any other things/parameters that i might have to verify, so as to ensure my drivers are upto date?


    PS: i wasn't sure whether to post this here or in the Hardware section since it includes both. Please let me know if i have to move it.

    Thanks in advance.

    compare the driver version you installed with the latest one available on the nvidia site?

    usually glGetString(GL_VERSION) has a bit more info, e.g. this is the relevant line i get from glxinfo:

    Code :
    OpenGL version string: 2.1.2 NVIDIA 260.19.21

    or perhaps I'm not quite understanding what you are asking for?

    I'd just go and download the newest one off the NVIDIA website and install it, no harm done and then you're sure you've got the latest one.

    Thanks for the replies. Well, i just wanted to test its performance. So i wanted to make sure all drivers are updated and then thought of testing its performance.
