    Thank you, hopefully it will fix my Oblivion problem (see my topic).

    On another note I do find the lack of fixes and tiny game fix list a little strange. Why on earth would they bother releasing a driver that does so little? I don't know :butt:

    x1950 XT owners will just have to try em and see if they support their cards yet, i couldn't find any mention of it anywhere. :(

    Can confirm x1950 XT 256mb is supported. :)

    I haven't noticed any change in these from the 6.11's. As long as they don't create a problem, I'm happy.

    Anyone here got a X1950XTX and see if it works?

    Also has anyone seen any performance increases? Because when I went from the 6.10's to 6.11's I saw a 3k performance decrease in 3dmarks and about 20-30 fps drop.

    Thanks

    heads up

    there has to be a problem with the install for you to loose 3000 in 3dmark, and 20-30 fps.....

    ive not seen anywhere on any forums showing a loss of that nature in any cat driver.....

    you can almost always see a differance of a few points and fps even when using the same drivers and running the same tests, but that kinda loss indicates a problem with something other than the driver.

    Even though it's a minor fix, they fixed that very annoying issue with PowerDVD playing my DVD's back jerky. I actually like watching DVD's on my PC.. cause I don't have enuf $$ to buy a really nice LCD Flat or Plasma (yet).

    No problem as of yet that I can tell, everything seems as stable as it was with the 6.11.
