    Just saw this post over at Rage3D. Seems like they're the same set that Omega worked his latest release on.
    I'm downloading them now, but i'm a bit tired so I won't do any testing, sorry.


    ::EDIT::
    Just right off the installation I notice that the 3.8's wasn't as good as I first thought. I had a feeling of a fast flickering when not playing games, but at first I thought it was all in my head or something.
    Now with the 3.9b's the flickering is gone, so maybe I am sane after all... :)

    Works great for me so far, no installation problems and no problems with any games. (Rad 9800 pro).

    Performance, didnt really notice any difference and no overheating/refresh rate problems neither.

    Games tested so far:

    Unreal 2003 + mods
    Hl + mods
    Dvd's play fine
    Pro Evo soccer 3
    Ford Racing 2
    Fifa 2004

    Not sure why it doesn't reconize my card. It could be the bios has been changed, but not sure. Since it's only a pumped up 9800pro I don't see why they won't work.?

    I can't wait to do some benchmarks when I get my ATi card next week. I will start fro mthe drivers provided in the box then work my way up to these 3.9 betas or the 3.9 final if they are out by then. Has anybody seen any major improvements/losses with these 3.9betas?

    These beta Drivers rock! Halo runs at least 10FPS faster for me.

    The rage forums name fits it nicley. Heaven forbid if you ask a simple question over there or say the wrong thing. As for me I cannot get the drivers to load correctly. From what I'm reading you need to manually install them like I use to do with nvidia. If someone could help me get these loaded I'd love try them for my new card (9800XT). Since I'm off today, because San Diego is burning down and I need to stay inside, I have some free time to fiddle with beta drivers. Any help or suggestion will gladly be excepted. Thankyou

    i didn't have to manually install them, but i don't have a 9800 xt.

    the file you downloaded from the guru download section extracts the files, then run the setup file.

    for what it's worth, i gave these drivers a shot last night and i thought they were crap. the aa royally sucks..

    What do these show up as? My Display info in control panel say they are catalyst 3.7's? NOT 3.8 nor 3.9. And my AquaMark3 scores have dropped about 1000 points.

    any one else?
