Possible R9700 8X Fix: VIA 4.40 AGP Drivers! Those of you out there with one of the MSI KT4 Ultra motherboards who also happen to have the Radeon 9700 Pro know all too well what this issue is: SLOW PERFORMANCE. Upon installing a brand-new Radeon 9700 Pro this morning (following ATI's instructions to the letter), I discovered a SEVERE performance issue: It was slow. Very slow. Like sub-30 FPS benchmarks in 3DMark2001 slow. Like slower than the 8500 it replaced slow. I did some digging around and came up with a solution. For details, see the forum.
