    Just curious if anyone's seen the BETA drivers DH used in their X800XTPE vs CoolFXGF6800U and their article about FartCry, err... Far Cry.

    I resepect ATI for waiting for WHQL certification before officially releasing their drivers, but it would be nice to see how these perform elsewhere, and also to test the theory of 3Dmk03 artifact removal.

    Thanx, eh!
    :cool:

    I don't see them on the web after a minute or so of searching, but I've found some references saying they're floating around...

    And they're going to include better OpenGL drivers, yay! :)

    they will be available in the Catalyst 4.8 set that is not far off. From what I understand ATI only sent them to a few websites to compare against previous versions, so unless one of those sites wants to take the chance and lose their privileges with ATI, I can't see them reaching mainstream

    Thanks, Eh!

    Thanx guys, that's what I expected, but I will still continue my quest, with a nice cold one in my hand to keep me company.

    If I do find anything I'll post back here for the sheer narcissism of it all. :)

    the driver will not leak... at least i dont think it will... asus has been told once or twice already to keep quite, so you wont be seeing any beta driver until they are out.... also the driver driverheaven used in the article are already old, and they have a new beta out already :D which we will get when they OFFICIALLY release in august shortly.
