    I´d love it if ATi actually released BETAs on their own site, before they are WHQL:ed. :)

    What is strange about this driver is it is being downloaded from an Asian ASUS ftp site. I was going to try it but I was only getting 3kbs and the download is quite large weighing in at almost 100mb because it is every app and utility ATI ever released. Usually these are specific MFG hotfix drivers meant for a specific card. Now that Vista is out and there are so many new cards that have came out since the beta testing of Vista then we are going to see allot of these.

    Rumor has it that there will be no R600 at all. Known is that what is called R600 will come in 65nm. Guess is that this is R650, with R600 canned.

    It so slow, if you finish download it, can you upload it to another site. Such as yousendit or megaupload, cause i only get 5kb/s.
    But is this the 'real' or it just a 'fake' from someone make it for fun? Cause I have trouble with my ATI Catalyst 7.2, I cannot change from basic view to advanced view. And I can't change the brightness, there is only one option, that I can change, which is the size. If anyone know how to fix it, then please reply.
    -Thank in Advanced-

    funny thing is they are not 7.3 betas but a card specific release from Asus, if they were 7.3 they would no carry the 8.351 they would be based on 8.36 or later

    CM's Warning:

    Playing with beta drivers can be dangerous to your health and your sanity. The catalyst general recommends you only indulge in official drivers and not sacrifice the stability of your system, for the sake of a cheap thrill

    :D

    wednesday.

    my warning about that beta stands. be careful, as it may be the version that wont let you install ccc and corrupt it totally.

    In a weird way I do want to see people get burned by beta drivers, and learn not to play with untested software ;-) thats why we post every month, so you dont need to worry about drivers that companies release without testing... bad bad bad bad practice.

    ATi 4 tEh W33n !

    Seriously I can't wait for 7.3's, I hope it'll fix the issue that disables the quick-start menu if you reboot your system. It's my only complaint with 7.2's, other than that it's awesome as usual.

    Thanks Terry, I remembered there was a reason I stopped playing with betas. Wait a tic, that wasn't the reason...it was 'cause you now put them out once a month so there ain't really a need or use for it. :lol: Still, it was fun to play with 'em a bit...got the old juices flowing in me. STALKER has got me obsessed in a way that games just haven't in a while. :) Wenesday, got it. Any fun hints on new CCC things?
