A little bit of data from new (version 30) Detonator Drivers
Just ran 3DMark2001SE with the 29.80 drivers and with the new 30.00 (not 30.30beta) Detonator drivers.
29.80 = 10268
30.00 = 10521
Not too shabby a driver release.
BTW: The Ti4200 is running at 290/590...I don't know how far it will OC...
I didn't have Serious Sam or MDK2 installed and I don't own Quake3.
I don't know how to bench any of the other games I have.
Code Creatures rose only about 0.2 FPS (16x12) to 2 FPS (10x7).
I aggree. I don't know all the scripts to bench many of my games. If Codecreatures had a little compare feature like 3DMark2001, it would be the thing to use to test graphics subsystems.

For those that havne't run this demo...http://www.codecult.com/ it's vicious on video cards because (one reason) it renders thousands of individual blades of grass and leaves, amounting to hundreds of thousands of polygons a second.
