    I'm curious if these support the AGP 3850, or if we have to wait for another AGP Hotfix? It would be nice if the AGP 3850 were included in the stock driver set.
    ------------------------------------------
    Edit:
    Well, I decided if I wanted the answer, I'll have to find out for myself, so I installed them. I think I have a new winner, I'm keeping these. They installed just fine and are working without any issues (so far) on my Sapphire HD 3850 AGP card.

    Lightsmark 2008(OpenGL) = 232.1fps (my previous best was 221.2)

    F.E.A.R. Performance test = 32-Low, 73-Average, 167-Max

    Both tests ran at 1680x1050, F.E.A.R. at Maximum settings in game.

    I am impressed!

    How good it will be for my Radeon 9600 Pro? I mean, when I'm trying to use ATi's drivers it seems like it fcks everything up, and when I'm using Omega Drivers everything ok.

    When I'm trying to use the ATI's ones, I cannot play games anymore (I'm getting Blue Screen of Death). Any help?

    so stick with omegas, preferably 7.12 or 7.10 (if .12 breaks some opengl)

    9600 is old so latest drivers wont improve much of anything after a couple years of its launch, unless they're to fix some game/app that isnt working properly

    well it seems as they didn´t include the optimizations from the 2nd hotfix in these for xp or vista so no multicore support as of yet.
    this is as far as i know ATI is loosing people for Nvidia due to bad drivers and lack of support, so i have heard.

    but i do think 9.2 might be the 1 driver we all wait for

    You know, I love this statement every time I see it. Untrue, but always amusing to see. Allow me to explain, I highly doubt people are leaving in droves because of a driver release or two.

    I had a PC with the original Radeon in it, the 8500. The other PC had a 7800GS. Granted the nVidia was faster in 3D, but both PC's had DVD drives in it, and I could not stand using the 7800GS for watching video, even the old 8500 was superior for DVD viewing. People choose their cards for the preferences in which they are used, please stop with the blanket threat of "People are gonna stop using your stuff if you don't fix my obscure game in your drivers" crap. My current 3850 loves the newer drivers, and it rocks the house when watching Blu-Ray. Is it the fastest? No. Is it the best quality? Damn straight it is!

    9.1 installed fine overtop 8.9 in xp64

    on the previous note, people also seem to ignore nvidia's driver issues, & i'd rather not juggle between a bunch of betas trying to figure out which runs best

    the multicore probably had some issues or needs some extra testing & will come in 9.2

    hotfixes arent final versions of features & dont always have to end up in later releases

    i see well since i can´t see a really clear change in benchmarks such as FC 2 GTA IV from 8.11-9.1 i might be wrong but i think it was 8.111 that gave me more fps in GTA IV than 8.12 and 9.1

    But i have some more testing to do and i do not know how these games works in VISTA as of yet.

    well i stand corrected....and i wasn´t thinking seriously of getting a Nvidia card rather another HD4870 512/1GB but since the ones i can choose to buy are slightly oc´d from factory i guess this PC none oc´d HD4870 is the one to set the speed or is it?

    i mean will the oc´d go to the stock clocks of the first HD4870?

    That's usually how I gage my overclocks, by how a factory overclocked setting are. But that is not always a wise option either, since some of these "factory overclocked" video card quite often has better cooling options installed as well.

    When it comes to overclocking, caveat emptor. You put your hardware at risk, and nobody will be to blaim except yourself.

    But I do have to ask, you mentioned Vista, this thread is for the XP version of the drivers, if you are using these in Vista, you should go here to discuss.

    well ok i do use XP and i was thinking of Vista soon to see if there is any big difference in games adn such.

    but i am curious if i have a non oc´d hd4870 adn put in a factory oc´d card how will the cards work?

    does the Oc´d go to the speeds of the non oc´d ?
    will they both owrk after the "standard" speed of the HD4870?

    since having installed (mobility modded) catalyst 9.1, during every startup my taskbar first appears properly (start button, language icon and clock), then dissappears completely (black empty area instead), and after some 1-2mins reappears again, and then all the other icons in the tray appear and the system is ready. also some icons like the volume icon dont appear at all, although "place icon in the taskbar" in control panel is checked and behavior of the volume icon is set to always show in the taskbar options (even hide inactive icons unchecked doesnt make them appear).

    i dont know whether this happens due to the installation of catalyst 9.1, or something else (cant remember doing any major changes to the system in the past week), but it certainly wasnt like that some 8-9 days ago.

    winxp pro sp3
    mobility radeon hd 2600
    mobility modded catalyst 9.1 installed over a perfectly working mobility modded catalyst 8.12 installation.


    thanks

    Yes, and it's still broken in 9.2.
