    Thanks for sharing rflair. Really nice drivers! Performance is up in DirectX 9 by a lot.

    Benchmarks on a single ATI 5850 all done in 5040 x 1050 eyefinity resolution (GPU limited) showing the recent driver releases in some game I have. Going to keep these.

    Has your 2D clock rate changed to 400/1200 now?

    As the title suggest has your 2D clock changed to 400/1200 now using a single card with a single monitor?

    OpenGL gamers won't be that happy. Quake crashes on start, Jedi Knight 2 Jedi outcast crashes on start. Enemy Territory - QUAKE Wars performance is way down but at least it starts.

    Heaven 2.0 OpenGL test has rendering errors. Black screen in some places can someone duplicate?

    my card doesnt like these drivers, i get 2500 points less in vantage, and i get a black screen at the end of the setup (i just keep pressing enter until it rebooted.)

    gonna try the drivers again tonight when i get home.

    GJ sideeffect, thanks!
    This is the best response to a new driver set...
    Not something like "feels smoother" whan the difference is 1 fps :p

    No for me as long as the card is at default clocks it goes to 157 core and 300 memory in 2D with 1 monitor. If a 3D overclock is initialised using afterburner or overdrive then it goes to 400/1000 in 2D.

    I use afterburner and use a hotkey profile for stock clocks which I set when in desktop and a hotkey profile for overclocks for when in games and I disable overdrive.

    Np :)

    Make an profile with OverDrive disabled, and you'll have the 157/300 idle clocks, I can live with this easily, the benefits far outgunns the drawback in this set...

    Thx for the upload rflair :)

    It's quite interesting that some AGP cards are listed here; maybe I should give them a try for my old AGP HD3650 based HTPC.

    I guess I am totally dumb about this. I am running Win7 x64. Which "setup.exe" do I use? I tried both (In the first folder and the one in the Bin64 folder) and either I got an error of no driver installed or my resolution was wacked.

    Sorry to be so ignorant

    HulaHal you have to use the one in the main folder (8.74), not the bin64 one.
