    Hi there, new drivers, you know the drill ;)

    What's New?

    * Based on the official Catalyst 3.6 ATI drivers. (9x/ME/2k/XP)
    * Added support for the following chipsets: (9x/ME/2k/XP)
    Radeon 9600 TX
    * Fixed the "Card not supported" message, now the drivers should install in any card without problems. (9x/ME/2k/XP)
    * Experimental Mobility Support in 9x/ME (installs differently, let me know if it installs correctly). (9x/ME)
    * Added some new tweaks that should improve performance. (9x/ME/2k/XP)
    * Updated the Overclocking utility to version 1.800d. (2k/XP)
    * Re-Enabled support for 1280x768 resolution. (2k/XP)
    * The 9500->9800 and 9700->9800 hack is still avaiable as an install option. (2k/XP)
    * The 9x/ME drivers still don't have the hacked driver incorporated, sorry. (9x/ME)

    Get them here.

    Enjoy!

    OK, Thanks Omega!

    Now, the 9x/ME drivers are creating 2 "Unknown Device" messages upon reboot. I'm canceling those and then not finding any trouble items in Device Manager.

    I'm assuming they're related to the WDM drivers for my 64 DDR VIVO card.

    Yep, those are the WDM drivers.
    I have the latest WDM links on the bottom of my ATI page, try those, they should fix that problem ;)

    Holzdrache, they support your mobility, try installing them and let me know if they install correctly.

    hacked 9700 to 9800 driver

    I now have the omega 2559 (the hacked 3.4 cat with the 9700-9800 mod installed).

    i have a sapphire atlantis 9700 non-pro (unlocked by default).

    Will my performance when using fsaa 4x and af 8x go down when i install the new omega driver (there is no hack in this one)?
