    New ATI Catalyst Drivers version 3.0

    Get the goods!!!!

    Be sure to follow my install guide if you have any problems. Some people seem to think just using RegCleaner to remove ATI keys is a clean install... it's not.

    How come radeon 9500 and 9700 are certified and all other Radeons are not?

    Is there any mirrors available??

    Ati's site is damn slow! It would take 5hours to download those.

    I have no clue. Maybe because those are the only cards to support DirectX 9.

    Ok my initial findings with these drivers: Vsync seems to be FORCED ON no matter what the control panel setting is. I had to force it off with Powerstrip :( 3DM2k1 is down a good 100pts, but I could care less as long as real games are better.

    No vsync problems here. 3DMark scores are about the same, but 3DMark was made obsolete when the 9700 hit the shelves. Initial tests show that my stuttering in UT 2003 may be fixed. This still requires more testing though. So far I haven't experienced any problems.

    Be sure to follow my little install guide :D *shameless plug*

    Personnally I don't give a monkey's how well DX9/Catalyst3 drivers play games, 'cos I don't!

    But, I am impressed to finally get a driver set that does not leave artifacts all over the screen when used with CursorXP!!! :D
