    Well, if they come before at least 6.4 Omegas come, I'll have to use the official ones...

    I'm going to make an actual prediction and say with little doubt we'll see cat 6.5 on Monday or Tuesday.

    Hmm...

    - Triple performance in Oblivion. (okok.. asking a bit much... um.. how about double?)
    - Bloomin' HDR for bloomin' lower end cards (such as the bloomin' 9250)
    - Crossfire support.... for one card, or a mix of cards.. would give me a reason to use my Rage IIC again
    - Announcement that ATI has hired Ray Adams, and that ATI Tray Tools will now be an offical product of ATI (or at least ATTs features will be incorporated into the CCC)
    - DirectX 10 support.. NOW!
    - ATI incorporates FRAPS into the CCC
    - Soft-mod support (get's a bit tedious having to do it myself every time I change drivers)
    - Support for all series of ATI products within their drivers, including laptop graphics! (okok.. unlike the rest of them this one might be asking too much)

    If there's anything else I'm missing, well..... keep it to yourself. :p

    Can I take pics while you do that? :evil::rofl:

    As I said in another thread somewhere, all it takes is common sense to find out the exact date. And that's all I will say on the matter ;)

    That would have about the same chances of succeeding as buying a GeforceFX 5800 Ultra Silent Edition from Bestbuy right now :rofl:

    Don´t be so sure. I´ll come to you and force you to play games all day.... with an nvidia card:wtf::rofl:

    Nah, but I´m looking forward to the new Catalysts. The only thing i am missing is "game-specific profiles". I don´t like forcing AA/AF to "ALL" games, but some games don´t have options for AA ingame (e.g. riddick, Americas Army, UT2004, etc). Thats probably the only thing that is missing. And im sure ati will make this happen someday.

    I dont understand why so many dislike the CCC. First of all, how often are you in it and changing settings?! I optimize my settings once after every installation of the Catalysts, and then i never touch it again. Also, i use the Catalyst guide over at www.tweakguides.com to optimize the whole CCC.

    By following it, i´ve reduced memory usage and such to almost 0. Settings stay as i´ve choosen. The CCC really doesn´t need to start everytime you reboot. I mean, is starting the CCC the first thing you do after a reboot?:confused: If i want to change a setting, i rightclick and click on the icon - and change anything i want. And when looking in ctrl+alt+del CLI.exe only uses 2mb. How can that be the resource hog "everyone" is talking about?

    I wrote this to everyone finding the CCC annoying. Just follow the guide over at tweakguides.com and you will not find the CCC annoying anymore. I´ve had my ati-card since 4th of january and since day 1 have i followed the guide. And i´ve never had any wierd errors or crashes - drivers have only been perfect and the CCC just as good.

    Well that's just the thing. CCC is a bloated piece of crap and you shouldn't have to use tweakguides just to get it running acceptably.

    If you guys just can't wait a couple days to get the official drivers you can always go and download the betas. Just do a search on Google, and you'll find them.

    Now, can we please kill this thread? :dead:
