    Warning, they are for AGP cards mainly, I am currently on the 8.12s and only download the latest hotfix for backup purposes (since i see no FTP). I was on 8.1, moved to 8.5 and then 8.12, all work for AGP, 9.2s are probably the same (Just work and support newer games)

    I never thought 8.12/8.11 was any good either.

    i think it mainly deals with the way the AGP cards access DX, because the report applies to the 3850 and lower cards after Cat 7.7s.

    I checked previous ATI driver reports , and in all they claim minor fixes about XP 32 , so i will keep the 9.2 until to see a true bug or something , benchmarks are just benchmarks , so far on gaming i did not see any negative effects .

    ATi release more than one hotfix, for your 4870X2 the AGP hotfix wouldn't have worked.

    HUH!

    That button never seems to 'work' - I'll submit news which will be ignored, and the 20 minutes or so later the exact thing I posted is up on the main page without any mention of who sent it in.

    Sometimes I ask myself why I stay here, then I realise that not everyone is an asshole and that there are some freaking brilliant members here.

    Ok lets roll again about the drivers subject ...

    The 9.2 states as major advantage the " OpenGL 3.0 context "

    Does any one know what software or Game using it ?

    Off topic ...
    Just download and test the old ATI screen saver ( ATI ScreenSpace) - Moon planets and stuff , amazing view ;)
    Azkeyz and fullinfusion say thanks.

    Heh, just tested it on one of my old 3870x2s and it died during installation. I feel sorry for the poor thing, but that made the 100th card I've killed. I will be enshrining it just for the heck of it. It definitely served me well.

    *sigh*

    I'm going to reformat and try a fresh install of these drivers... I never have an easy time installing ANY ati drivers but this time I think I screwed up something and I'm sick of trying to find fixes for this installation.

    Thank Freaking Goodness, a Crysis DX10 boost :toast:
    I think it's time for a fresh Format and a Vista x64 install. But after I test the 9.2's for a week or so to see if I have to format.
