Driver update: VIA 4-in-1 4.26 beta

Pesticide reports that VIA Hardware has found new VIA 4-in-1 beta drivers. According to the info below, there are changes in the VIA Bus Master driver and the AGP and INF file. Apparently Win2k users are making good progress:

I just got my hands on some new VIA 4-1 drivers, version 4.26. I have these installed on my personal system without problems. The big thing in the drivers appears to be a new VIA Bus Master driver, possibly a new AGP and INF file also. I hope to have some more results on these in the next few days. For now these should be considered BETA and only used at your own risk.

[…] *update* After using these new drivers for a few hours, the new VIA Bus Master drivers seem to be a huge improvement. Though I haven’t done any formal benchmarking yet, my system seemed to “grind” more before these drivers. The new Bus Master drivers have taken away the “grind” in my Win2k, IBM 75GXP, 256mb ram computer.

Version number 4.26 beta
Operating systems Windows 9x, Windows NT, Windows 2000
