    not real...

    "v6.14.10.6351" those are not 3.5 cats. I thought the 3.4 were the 6351 version.

    3.4 Cats are 6.14.10.6343, think I will wait for the official Cat 3.5 drivers.
    They also have the Control Panel.

    Re: well

    Of course not. They would not call a beta set "Catalyst".

    This beta driver is prob something between Cat 3.4 and 3.5

    A direct quote from the Warp2search link.....

    ________________________________________________________________________________________

    We are still in contact with ATI and will update you on the findings. The official Catalyst 3.5 release will take place between June 19th and June 26th.

    ________________________________________________________________________________________

    So they will be released somewhere between today and next week.

    I'll wait for the official Cat's and skip these leaks myself.

    The control panel is included as a separate download with these.


    I got the files while I could still get them, but haven't installed them yet.

    I decided to go ahead and try these. Control Panel Options DOES show them at CAT 3.5.

    There are some nice new features:


    1. It offers to add a shortcut to the ATi Control Panel to your Desktop.

    2. It changes the way various monitors are designated. (Maybe I have to reinstall Hydravision to get the previous graphics. But, what I have now in the Displays tab is a 1, 2, etc number to designate which of the 4 possible displays I can use. It also started up just fine separating my TV OUT and letting me work my CRT display without the corrupted setting I've been used to dealing with after each new install.


    On the downside:

    3. It has completely removed my Windows Task Bar. It's nowhere in sight...and I can't bring it up at all. Maybe someone knows what's going on here, but, so far, I can't get it to come up even with the CTRL-ESC input.

    EDIT: AHA....the Taskbar is being assigned to the Extended Desktop and showing up on the TV screen. That's not a good idea. It's back home now where it belongs on the Default Desktop. It was a matter of switching the Displays around and dragging the Task Bar back home.

    Re: Re: well

    Exactly correct, this is an early beta from somewhere between the 3.4 catalyst set and the upcoming 3.5 set. ATi does NOT like people calling these the cat 3.5 betas, I think it's 'cause they ain't indicative of the 3.5 set that is going to soon be released but I don't know for sure.

    Monday, take that to the bank. :cool:

    Just so you'll know, the TaskBar problem appears to be repeatable. I rebooted the system and had to go drag it back home again just now.

    I do believe this must be an early beta copy of the CAT 3.5. The file date is 5/15/03.


    EDIT: Good news. I just went through a series of reboots after inexplicably losing my CDRW drive. I finally got it back and the Taskbar has stayed put.
