    Not sure, i just did recommended install:

    Differences are as follows:

    3Dmark06 6.5's: 3838

    3Dmark06 6.6's: 3850

    6.6's also seem to run games and apps more smoothly, thy come with CCC, no option for installing the regular cp, only an option to NOT install CCC.

    P.S. Didn't have time to run 3dmark05, wanted to get you guys some comparisons quickly, will run 3dmark05 some other time :)

    ALSO, tests werent completed with 685/1764 but 675/1737...

    Damn. The ATI download is too slow, like 5-7 kb/s.

    Any chances Hilbert'll host them here?

    EDIT: Please, Hilbert, do it, I'll do whatever you want. I'll click the ads 500 times... please host them! (And I'm gonna click them 500 times!)

    EDIT2: Done.

    In 05 I get `10707 all stock about the same as 5.5's to be honest maybe a lil lower. Dont know if that is good or not. Dont care about 06 cause im on a single core.

    Downloaded fine for me, I got around 200KB/s.

    Regarding performance of these drivers, I got a whopping 5 extra points in 3DMark06!

    I've got a dual core and an X1900XT and they seem to work pretty well. I got an extra 6FPS in the video stress test in CS:S.

    Anyone know if these have the same issue when oc'd with atitool that the 6.4 and 6.5 drivers did? I tried the 6.6 beta and had the same issue if it either resetting to 2d clocks or locking up the system when viewing an avi or mpeg file.
