Catalyst 5.6 released!

I didn't notice the WMV acceleration, but yeah...a lot of the HD video I download is WMV, and a lot of gaming sites put videos out in this format. Hopefully the HD won't stutter on my computer anymore.

I'll let you know if this improves anything whatsoever on a 9800 Pro when I get off work.

Installed the 5.6 Cat's. 9800 PRO Card.

No problems encountered.

Textures definitely look better in Ut2004, game play may have been a ittle smoother, especially panning.

Off to see what they do for EE 2 now.

PS The Control Panel loads a lot quicker now.

EE2 may be a little smoother on panning also when unit count gets high.

Summary: Seems worth the download and install.

I can't get the CCC to start. CLI.exe is running, but when i try to start the CCC, it makes a busy icon then goes away. Nothing happens. Anyone know how to fix this?

.net framework 1.1 is installed.

I got a 9600XT (256MB version) so I will definately have to update my drivers. If the choppiness of Wow goes away after installing these, I will hold off on getting a new graphics card :D

Guys, can I just install this over my old drivers or what? I'm running a 9800 pro.
I would not do that, it can cause problems when older driver files mix with new ones.

I always uninstall the drivers from Add/Remove programs (even after this there are still tons of ATI files / registry entries on your system)
Run Driver Cleaner and select every ATI filter available. (google it)
Restart, and then install the new drivers.

That way you are sure you have a clean driver installation.

Anyway, I installed these and WoW seems a bit smoother. I'll have to test out a few more games.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
