    Looks like the TVwonder 650 has Win7 support finally. That took time!

    In terms if vantage performance, these are as good as the 'leaked beta's' we had our hands on 2-3 days ago.

    pity about the delay, but I have yet to have any bugginess or instability, keepers for now.

    not noticing any real fps improvements in games, but they seem smoother. Looks like it's just an epeen extension for the Vantage crowd. pshaw.

    My 4870x2 gets a about 161,000 on the DirectComputer Benchmark

    OC'd to 800(GPU) x 1000(Mem) and am getting a little over 170,000

    Don't have the OpenCL SDK yet. Too lazy at the moment to get it :D

    Can't test CPU as all 4 cores are running 100% crunching and I don't want to suspend the work units.

    i uninstalled ran driver sweeper w/e dbl checked all remains of previous driver were gone installed new driver same issue

    supcom and supcomfa are screwed with crossfire on and off after mulitple driver installs

    supcom the units just stall they dont move in large battles in supcomfa units are fine but everytime u leave a skirmish or complete a mission etc i crash to desktop 9.11s dont have this problem so the 9% perfromance increase i get in Dirt2 isnt worth the loss of 2 games i have a blast playing sorry Ati back to the drawing board for you

    yea thankfully the hotfix drivers were the cure i needed :toast:
    very happy with them altho i find it comical they have a screw up on DAY 1 of a driver release that needs a correction that they already had they would have at least seemed more hmm adequate reliable on the ball damn it the word i want escapes me but eitherway they should have waited the extra 10hrs and released the hotfix driver as the actual 9.12 driver. they would have looked a bit less incompetent (found the word i wanted) :roll: anyway we have a good driver finally time to start benching

    is anyone else having issues running 3dmark06 cpu tests under windows 7 64-bit using hd 5000 cards? tried 9.12 and the hotfix drivers. on core i7 (doubt that makes any difference)

    I keep getting d3derr_invalidcall even before any testing starts. the normal tests work fine, seems to work fine with non-hd5000, seems to work fine with cat 9.11

    we narrowed it down to a bug between these drives and the EDID info from his monitor. for some reason it removed the resolution of 640x480, which the CPU tests use.

    edit: i'm about to test the beta/openCL drivers


    9.12 WHQL without stream SDK installed (no change with SDK):

    9.12 Hotfix with stream SDK installed - custom version of GPU-Z from w1zzard :)

    but the benchmark works fine :D
