    Can you give me an indication from 1-10 how you rate the drivers? 1 being the lowest 10 being the highest?

    hasnt impressed, has more issues. when i minimize the gamma gets screwed in games, giving issues in wc3 and when i instaleld it the first time everything loaded slowly as if my driver was not installed. that required a uninstall/reinstall.

    well i don't have any third party override proggys here. used to have but then found out that ATI had built in that covered BOTH d3d and OGL so took all mine off. I know I could just put reforce back on but pity to really :( and maybe other problem is dual monitors related ??? dunno really.

    I know this problem prolly just pretains to me only..... But for some reason I install these with the softmod... Get the right fill rate.... But I bench and I get 2500 less points in 2k1 than I should. It's mostly from the nature test. I mean all tests run slower than the 3.5s....... But the nature test specifially runs at least 40fps slower than my 3.5s..... I'm sticking to the 3.5s till I have time to clear up my drive and retry the 3.6s.... Hell, I just benched 17794 with the 3.5s on my 9500np softmodded to 390/320

    These drivers seem to be all over the board. Mostly good ratings...(8-10), but some mediocre (5-6) and the rest terrible, (1-4).
    Don't remember there ever being as much descrepency in a driver release and rating poll.:bleh:

    Hopefully if more people vote, then we should see more accurate results.

    3.6's and MOH

    with medal of honor, regardless of the settings in control panel, movement during intense game play is herky jerky. did not have this with 3.5s.

    Installed just fine but should have known better.
    Was using Omega's, could play IL2 Forgotten Battles 1280x960 with 4xAA 8xAF with no stutters on my 9700 pro.
    Had to cut back on the settings with 3.6.
    So back to Omega's.
    Gave it a 3.

    i gave them an 8.
    They may not be the best ever, but it seems like multitasking during a game is smoother than usual for me. That has been my only problem.
