looks good , can someone do a benchmark to verify those gains ?
Halo? Like, the first Halo?
A little late to that party... Ah well, at least my 9600pro will get some kind of performance boost out of it

Looks like a lot of issues for Vista were fixed.
A fair amount for the XP systems aswell.
WOW. A serious wow. That's impressive.
Let's hope 8.5 is more AGP friendly, esp. 3850 series.
Thats a big claim, lets see if it is actually true.
once per month
I never did install the 8.4s I downloaded, not sure if they were worth installing, but Im definitely gonna install these.
Woo I can finally get HD Audio going with out the HD 3450 in my HTPC
Anyone with a 2900XT to test openGL?
w00t! Performance increase in STALKER!!! (not like crossfire 3870s on an Intel quad need it )
getting to the DL now
I must be the only one not getting the love.
Installed and so far so good. 100 point increase in 3DMark 06. Gonna run more tests, I'm interested to see if the WIC performance increase is true.
It installed fine on my 3850AGP. Ok here is the trick:
1./ DONT uninstal the old driver
2./ Just install the *drivers* not CCC on top of existing
3./ Reboot, then turn up hardware acceleration
RESULTS SO FAR:
1./ Lightsmark 2007, up +12%
2./ Open Furmark, 3337 to 3344 (nothing much)
3./ Aquamark, no change
4./ 3Dmark06, no change worth mentioning. Stock 10,299. Overclock 11,663 *
* I hate doing the 3Dmark benchmarks. They take SO LONG to do. Wish they would do something a little bit more zippy.
I have HD 2900 XT, what to test?
where's tski? has anyone tried 4 gpu performance?
I'll see if it works considering I've had to reinstall Vista.
Looking forward to hearing about your 3DMark score.
How good is Cat 8.5 with OpenGL? There is a program called GLSL Parser Test Source Code which does a quick test of 186 items to assure they all pass. The results all appear to be driver related so it's worth it to see if this Cat release passes all of them.
Side note: Is there a similar program for Directx?
Well I tried what lemonadesoda said, but it doesn't seem to have updated my drive set.
Unlucky. The best tip I can offer is to boot into "safe mode with VGA". In this mode stip old ATI drivers, (drivercleaner). Then install new 8.5 drivers. Then reboot. Then turn on troubleshooting hardware acceleration.
I've been busy swapping out the motherboard I just bought from you
But I do have them installed and running. Hopefully I'll do some benches later tonight.
I'll have to do it when I get home from work, far too tired now.
