4.9 beta is out
I would not recommend this as a download worth getting...
its got a few quirks... not bugs exactly but it has issues...
and its only good if you want to eek out @ best half an extra fps in Doom3 (in my experience)
I did not enjoy em and am getting rid of em asap (soon as I format later tonite )
just put it for news wise, i dont have an ati card yet, btw sazar which gfx card is the best regardless of the price, i havent been checking in a while, the 6800 ultra? or the x800xt
right now you are more likely to find a 6800GT than either an Ultra or an x800xt PE...
they both have their advantages and disadvantages but for the most part they are reasonably similar in performance...
I think a 6800 GT oc is the best bet for you right now
I just find that either of those cards is just too expensive for what it is ... I think both ATI and Nvidia have gone too far now with the prices and what they are selling is just not worth that kind of money.
just my 2 cents
Used 4.9 beta to get a little more performance out of Doom 3. My system developed a new feature that automatically restarted it every so often. Went back to Omega drivers. There are better ways to get better performance from Doom 3 on ATI cards.
im definitely still on the 4.7... and i thought 4.8 was beta so how the heck is there a 4.9 beta
wait i think ati should hire omega or nvidia lol
It's a Doom 3 hotfix that gives ATI cards better performance in Doom 3. Apparently ATI thinks Doom 3 is that important to actually release a hotfix drivers for it.
They are more for the X800 I got nothing from them with my 9600XT
