    They are probably dragging their feet because the CCC is terrible when compared to the regular CP. :sigh:

    Ati's cooperation with microsoft leads company to such decisions.If you look with care,after this event is happened,Cat. 5.6 is released with fully hardware supported WMV acceleration.If .NET will be embedded to Longhorn kernel(makes .NET run faster,like IE) , and also ati improves CCC softtware , result CCC will be like control panel.

    Not to some people.

    CP would run even faster I bet.

    But to be honest CCC works so well I don't see why people would get mad :)

    That a matter of openion, I like CCC it far better then that old classic control panel
    in my eyes. A good 70 % of people hate .net with a passion wich is the root of why
    they don't like it for quite a few.

    When you focred to use it you might acually learn like it, actualy give it a chance.
    It kinda like that bit of food your parents are trying to get you try try that tases
    awesome but you reluntant to try for what ever reason...

    well perhaps they are so confidetn that they resolved the major issues in CCC as they are so bold and perhaps a bit too daring to skip the ol´good CP so maybe it won´t take up a lot of resources as it does today so if they are to get this to be what they expect then they gotta be like 2000% sure this is the best thing for future cat drivers if not ohh man

    CCC for 5.6 is not bad.

    I just hate the CLI.exe X 2 running on like 10 megs of my ram each.

    And I hate it when it happens!

    But now I can choose.
    Not listening to what customers want, is not called business.

    Not unless you have control over microsoft or can make your own top end graphics cards.
    both nvidia and ati will have net control panels for longhorn.

    They listened and they have dragged the classic control panel behind them
    (I sure takeing a small toll on CCC) for how many months? To keep people
    like you happy? Time to cut loose the 10 ton trailer of dead weight and
    let the race car take off...

    Let them concentrate only CCC. You see you have no such choice in 2006
    that is if you would like to contenu to use windows anymore. There a still
    issues to be discoverd and adressed but you do realise if no one uses it
    and reports back then they can't make it better. Not all the problems are
    the fault of CCC or .net either but windows and the users configeration,
    system , and 3rd party software all factor in. Big diffreence betwwen an
    age old built into windows app and one that is a real software program.
    CCC seem to get better with every release too...

    ATI is not that far thinking a company that they are optimizing the CCC in time for longhorn that is rediculous. They needed the look of the Cpanel to catch up with the hype on all the technology what goes better with 24 pipelines than a bitchin fancy driver control panel!

    CCC is evolveing on XP true but thinks to .net it not as hard at all for them to make
    the switch over. It will carry right over to long horn with ease.

    For long horn you need to have .net control panel. 1st to release was bitboys .net , then ati's, nvidia was in the running on thiers then I asume "put it off" after people shund CCC. Or there are just setting on it until later this year or something :rolleyes: ...

    no one will be wineing abit about resource useage or anything of the sort when long horn
    rolls out. The adverage system specs long horn expects is a G70/R520, dual core 2.8 ghz
    or faster, 2 gb of ram. :wtf:

    Can someone elaborate on this PLEASE - Crossfire promises performance improvements of up to 100% with initial support on RADEON X800s and X850s:w00t:

    Crossfire = SLI for ATI - TWO cards! ... a concept first explored in VooDoo 2 SLI

    Variants on the 2 card SLI principle include:

    1. Using two top end cards together
    2. Using two midrange cards to get close to one of the next level (an interesting upgrade possibility if you have one "dual capable" card in a "dual capable" system)
    3. Two cores on one card, so long as it CAN be used

    Unless dual card capability is STANDARDIZED, so that Nvidia based mortherboards can use a pair of ATI cards in crossfire, and motherboards supporting crossfire also support Nvidia cards in SLI, it could become a minefield of acrimonious compatibilty complaints.

    Personally, I'd consider both kinds of "dual" to be merely a stopgap for better cards, unless the evolution has reached the point that dual cores is the only way forward.

    Not true... as I just got my retail version of the sapphire x800xl agp version... It came with redline software... seems like some peeps don't like this but so far it seems to work well for me... For whatever reason, I had an issue when installing the cat 5.6's... so the driver's were installed but the ccc had a prob... so I left it off after playing around with redline for a bit...
    there is an option within their gui to change the AI .... they also have quite a few other options and even included specific gaming profiles...
    I've hit an easy oc from 398/492 up tp 440/545 on the standard cooler... although the memory chips do heat up quite a bit... (140F) (not sure what the core is yet)
    So far so good:)
