    They also have the OpenGL 30% increse in FPS

    Not sure if the increse is only for 1K Cards or all cards.

    The increase is only for the 1K cards for sure.

    ATI's Serious Sam II knowledge base article says these drivers are only for "Serious Sam II" and ATI's Quake 4 knowledge base article says these drivers are only for "Quake 4" ?

    So does that mean there are *TWO* CAT 5.10a versions, like CAT 5.10a - Serious Sam II Edition and CAT 5.10a - Quake 4 Edition, and people need to install the corresponding version each time they want to play those games :)

    Not exactly... There's one driver, and theoretically it should work with everything, but in the interest of getting a patched set out as soon as possible, they couldn't put it through the same tests they put standard Catalyst sets through, or so I would assume...

    LOL, I was having a laugh at ATI's expense Ehecu. But you can see the confusion it could cause.

    Taken from the Firing Squad article:

    "On Friday we contacted ATI and were able to determine that the file originally uploaded to the site, hotfix_xp-2k_dd_ccc_027483.exe, wasn’t the driver with the OpenGL performance enhancements. Fortunately ATI was able to quickly correct the problem, the file that you want is hotfix_xp-2k_dd_ccc_027483a.exe."

    Quite funny that some got a boost from the "wrong" version. :)

    I think I got the 027483a.exe and I can run Quake4 at 1024x768 HQ without AA/AF.

    Whats Quake 4 like on your 9800XT, performance wise and all that. Also I don't recall ATI making any 128MB versions?

    A heads up for those who love their Image Quality and would like it to look how it should...

    We have the floor on at the bottom of these screens: - Old Driver - New Optimised Driver in which it's plain to see the reduction in detail when you flick between the images and now this comparison showing an even worse degradation on the wall to left in the red square.

    Seems like Ati are giving IQ improvements with one hand (High Quality AF) and taking away with the other. [crazy]
