    [​IMG]If you own an ATi video card, then download the new Catalyst 8.5 drivers for Windows Vista/XP and Linux. The drivers resolve some issues, and offer performance improvements, display mode enhancements, HDMI Audio for all TV timing modes, and WHQL certified support for Microsoft's Windows XP Service Pack 3. The Linux driver resolves some issues and adds new 3D settings to the Catalyst Control center.

    Related games, AMD says it has resolved problems in Clive Barker's Jericho, Crysis, Gears of War, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Hellgate: London, Stranglehold, Tabula Rasa, Team Fortress 2, and Tomb Raider Anniversary.

    Maybe it's just my rig, but Vantage's totally messed up. The Jane Nash test runs like crap, while the 2nd GPU test runs OK. Lotsa gfx glitches in the first GPU test as well. Oh well, on to some games and see how those run....

    I just tried vantage with 8.5, score only improved 10 pts, but i didn't have any glitches or anything. It ran without error.

    GOW plays smoother now, the microstutter's still there, but less obvious now. COD4 plays like normal.....buttery smooth! Will try Crysis later as I gotta grab some shuteye.

    This was a bit of a pain to install.. had to uninstall/reinstall couple of times and reboot like 4 times. Very annoying. But it seems to be all fine now.

    They have defenetly done something to the Source Engine (HL2 Series and CS:S) Before i had in the stresstest with all at max and Anisostrophic x16 no AA 1280x1024 avarege 190fps... now i have well over 290fps (Yes i have FPS_MAX set to 600) O_O and no flashbang flickering in CS:S.

    Freaking awesome. And Assasins Creed is getting smoother.
    Huge improvements with these drivers...

    How utterly pointless to have fps_max 600, you will never see frames higher than the refresh rate of your monitor, which is between 60-125hz. You also have a monitor that holds back the capabilities of you gpu, get a high resolution monitor and unleash the power m8.
