    Rate the Cat 4.4 drivers, from top being perfect to 1 being very poor.

    0 because the gamma settings issue tells me that these drivers are for gamers only not for professional people.
    thanks ATI

    Thats ok, they never fix stuff properly anyway, the ATI TV thats always present in the IE toolbar is never present in the MSN 9 toolbar, Still in UT2K4 still bluescreens, artifacts still present in Far Cry, Athena Sword same as above. I'll play some more games and check it out, but it doesn't look good. a 3 is all the deserve.

    Did they bump up the OpenGL performance for Call of Duty users? 3.10's have been the best drivers for CoD for me so far. I heard they were going to fix this in this driver but they didn't mention it :(.

    These drivers worked fine for me in Delta Force Black Hawk Down, but they fail to work on many systems when attempting to play the demo for Joint Operations. It is possibly related to the demo itself but on the NovaWorld forums you'll notice a shortage of people using nVidia cards reporting issues.

    Excuse my language, but whats with all the f*****g spazzing lately?

    "One new driver set didint fix my narrow specialized issue, so I'm never buying your product again!" :duh:

    Little overboard? At least be origional and say I'm gonna go buy an XGI or something after it.

    Anyway aside from my beefs with the negativity around here, I'm going to say that this driver release is ok. Nothing to be excited over. Frankly they gave me the last thing I wanted in 4.3.

    I do not have problems in raven sheild. I do not have any of the crap you folks describe above. This is the case for most users. Which means something is wrong with your card and RMA it or something is wrong with your PC in general.

    I'm running IL2 FB in DX, and it's just as nice if not better looking than in OGL. I don't see a noticable difference in FPS either. This is with 9500 Pro, and I saw the same thing on my old 1.2 Athlon system.

    You might give that a try.

    I give these an 8 only because the BF Vietnam issues are still there-it does play much better than with the 4.3s but it's still messed up. FarCry seems a tad smoother also. Good work ATi but I need a BF fix....please(unless its a game issue of course)

    Happy to say this set has had no issue's with COD and on my machine that is a shocker to me because I have had troubles in the Single Player mode since the game came out.

    Not even in Burnville :w00t: :w00t:
