    I'm using the 6.8s... Trying doesn't hurt :D

    I doubt these will improve performance on a 9600XT.. but it's worth the try.

    No, they add support for the X1950XTX and integrate the chuck patch too.

    Hm... they perform a bit better than the 6.8s I was using before... so I'm sticking to this release!

    Weedster I´d seriously consider upgrading that CPU.
    With a decent dual-core (preferably a Core 2 Duo) you´d get at leat 6500p in 3DMark06 instead of 4900 (without even any overclocking). Your current CPU is a major bottleneck to your X1950XTX. It´s like putting my grandmother behind the wheel of a Ferrari.
    I bet your fps spikes are caused by your CPU not being able to feed your GPU information to render.

    Know what you mean, upgrading to a new Mobo, RAM and CPU isn´t something you wanna do every week. If you´re not rich and/or very into having the latest.
    I just think it´s kinda sad that you´re great VGA card doesn´t get to show what it is really capable of. Since the C2D E6600 is a great "bang for the buck" and AMD´s 50% price cut, now would be a great time to upgrade your stuff.:program:

    my point in getting a such card was to being able to play most games with highest details without problems,which is the case now :D (BF2 1280/1024 highest details aax6 runs fine) , but of course at my next cpu/mobo/ram upgrade it will be somthing amazing regarding performance gain ! but i must say the core2 e6000's are quite tempting by the way:D

    save a few bucks and put the money where its needed the most...really good memory, like the
    OCZ DDR2 PC2-8000 Platinum Extreme Edition XTC

    then buy a 6400 that clocks very well ......

    is this what it

    Alternate Frame Rendering (AFR)

    In this mode, all even frames are rendered on one GPU, while all odd frames are rendered on the other. The completed frames from both GPUs are sent to the Compositing Engine on the CrossFire Edition board, which then sends them on to the display in turn. By allowing both GPUs to work completely independently, AFR provides the greatest potential performance improvements of all the available modes. It is also the only mode that allows the full vertex processing performance of both GPUs to be combined.

    The main limitation of this mode is that it cannot be used in applications where the appearance of the current frame is dependent upon data generated in previous frames, since AFR generates successive frames simultaneously on different GPUs. In these cases, the Supertile or Scissor modes can be used instead.

    Well I tried out 6.10 with yesterday When I installed my new xfire card. Everything looked good. pulled an aqua mark fine but then cod2/fear/3dmark06 would start to load and crash. cod2 would display just fuzzy/zaggy multi color until the menu screen and crash on loading. I used driver cleaner pro and installed 6.09 and it worked fine after that. So Im guessing these arent where they need to be yet, at least for my rig.
