    Catalyst 3.8 Drivers Release

    I know its early, but im not going to be home on the release (hence the subject is "Release" instead of "Released"), and I just wanted to start this first section off as a speculation replys.

    What do you guys want in the drivers?

    100% performance boost! :p Nah as long as I gain a few fps, and it runs just as stabley, I don't mind. :) No anti-aliasing with my card anyway. :(

    A slight performance boost (just enough to bring me 100 points higher to hit 20k in 2k1 :D ) and better image quality.

    Would be fabulous to see "real" TV-Out support instead of the hacky job. I'll take better stability over speed any day:)

    These are wishies of mine for the 9800pro 256mb.

    I would like to see something along the lines of the texture sharping option, is real nice on the Nv card's but sucked fps a tad, but with the card I have (+ other's here) we would benefit from it and would be great to see in use with the card.

    AA to be force up a little more to match Nv card's = X8 setting's or better still.

    A better layout for the control panel, as it's pretty much good as it is, but need's adjusting for look's and layout. - Looking kinda old with the current lay out.

    The choice to have multiview, as it is silly having two driver devices for one card - maybe there for a reason, but confused the hell out of me to start with lol.

    Refresh rate fixer, as am sure most of my games go to default 60Hz once they start.

    Is this to much to wish for?

    RivaTuner RC14 doesn't successfully patch the 3.8's. Should I try the newly posted ATI unlocking utility or just hold tight? Ummm, or did I miss something?

    Anyone having problems downloading these? It gets to 77% then just sits there. It downloads fine @ 150kbs up until it hits 77% for whatever reason.

    Im at 81 percentile. The downloading is extremely slow even with my dsl connection. From 150kb down to just 10kb.
