    Hmmm, OpenGL shader support included.

    Homeworld 2 working right maybe?

    I'll post back with the results.


    Update

    :D
    Works flawlessly with Homeworld 2, including tab out capability. I think they finally got it right.

    Also verified in BF1942 (panning was smoother) and Empire Earth.

    WELL WORTH THE DOWNLOAD!

    the omega version should have been released already...

    there was a leaked 3.10 floating round thats already been in use for a week or two...

    Actually Sazar the pre-release 3.10 IS NOT the same version as the ones released here. The drivers released here are actually a few versions on from the "hotfix" version released shortly after 3.9.

    Just a FYI in case you decided not to download it because you might think you already had them.

    raja... they release about 6 odd drivers between each official release... I have no doubt there are going to be difference's

    omega makes his drivers mixing and matching basically to find best performance/stability combination therefore if there is a leaked 3.10 based driver set prior to release of the official set he would have easily been able to come up with an omega set...

    Hey Sazar, no fair,
    I was only letting people know that the 3.10's are different from the Hotfix 3.9's becuase many people have claimed that they are the same version, just not WHQL'd.

    Im wasnt even referring to the Omegas.

    I thought you were talking about the hotfix version when you said this, and the Omegas you were referring too were based on that version.

    :D

    the hotfix was basically renaming the AIW components properly and fixing a CoD issue...

    I downloaded the Omegas. I don't like them, so I've got the 3.9s back in. Would I see a performance increase with the official 3.1s?

    In addition, doesn't a higher number mean newer?

    Why is it that you don't like the Omegas? The only real difference between them and the official 3.10's is that Omega tweaks the default settings in the control panel and system registry (some registry keys don't have corresponding control panel controls) to improve performance and includes some extra applications as well. I've been using them for about 3-4 versions now on two computers in our house and have had good luck with them. Additionally, as far as version numbers goes ATI is being weird with them... They're taking the entire number after the decimal as a whole.. hence 10 is higher than 9.

    I've actually noticed slowdown as opposed to the 3.9s. I lost about 1000 3dmarks.

    I didn't benchmark the 3.10 vs the earlier releases but my panning in BF9142 seemed a little smoother and HW2, an OpenGL game, plays correctly now. I was stuck at 3.4 to play HW2.

    Probably worth the download, definetly worth it if you do OpenGL games.
