    I wonder, between DNA-ATI Driver and Warcat Drivers, which has better performance.

    I was hoping someone who used these drivers and Warcat drivers would know because I personally use Warcat because it gives the best performance. If DNA-ATI drivers give more performance then I would probably switch.

    What you expect me to do a test myself between Warcat and my own DNA-drivers? Please try to stay reasonable and come with something in your post that makes sence

    I can't tell any real difference between your drivers and ATI other than the ATI tool tray which didn't show up in my install of the ATI drivers... Now I can overclock at startup without my computer freezing... Thank you for the drivers.

    Hello KillerSneak. I have never used modded drivers before, but I think I'm going to give these a go once they reach "final" stage. My questions:

    1) Any idea when this will happen? I refuse to use anything with a "beta" tag on it.

    2) Does DNA-ATI Tray Tools provide more advanced tweaks than the normal Tray Tools?

    3) Do any of the advanced tweaks in Tray Tools overlap the tweaks you have done to the drivers manually?

    Thank you in advance. :)

    1) I hope early next week as i have redone allot if things since (see www.dna-drivers.com frontpage at this moment) we have now the following version

    DNA-ATi 5.1.7.2x32
    DNA-ATi 5.1.7.2x64
    DNA-ATi 5.1.6.5x32_L (legacy)
    DNA-ATi 5.1.6.5x64_L (legacy)

    2) Yes it does

    3) The tweaks you set control the driver :) almost all tweaks interact directly with the driver, so you can customize it to your needs :)

    I just installed these driver and they gave me a nice fps boost in most all my games works real nice with Call of Juarez, with ati driver s wll any one i ever uses i would get about 30fps with SM2 and if i turned on SM3 it was more like 15-20fps but with dna i get 50-60fps with SM3 on. Only thing i found that did work was openGL i opened prey and got this error

    Quick fix make a reg file with this code in it:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\OpenGLDrivers\ati2dvag]
    "Version"=dword:00000002
    "DriverVersion"=dword:00000001
    "Flags"=dword:00000001
    "Dll"="atioglxx.dll"
    And the problem should be fixed

    I will give this a shot, along with Warcat 7.2 and compare with current ones (warcat 7.1).

    Edit: Ok.. done testing with Warcat 7.1 and 7.2. Now installing DNA-ATi 5.1.7.2x32 and run into one problem at install.

    After ati installer starts, it gives error about missing oemdspif.dll file.
    [​IMG]

    I had to manually locate it by opening B_DNA folder. Exactly
    C:\Program Files\DNA-drivers\DNA-ATi\Driver\2KXP_INF\B_DNA


    This is a simple and quite easily fixed issues.. lets see if any further installation issues arise. Time for reboot.

    OK.. testing is done, results are in!

    All testing done on my fairly modest rig, x1950pro with +20mhz overclocked core and stock mem (600/702). Using 3Dmarks05
    Here goes:

    XG Warcat 7.1 : 9220 3DMarks
    GT1 - Return To Proxycon 40,0 FPS
    GT2 - Firefly Forest 26,3 FPS
    GT3 - Canyon Flight 47,8 FPS

    XG Warcat 7.2 : 9307 3DMarks
    GT1 - Return To Proxycon 40,5 FPS
    GT2 - Firefly Forest 26,5 FPS
    GT3 - Canyon Flight 48,1 FPS

    DNA-ATI 5.1.7.2 : 9302 3DMarks
    GT1 - Return To Proxycon 40,4 FPS
    GT2 - Firefly Forest 26,5 FPS
    GT3 - Canyon Flight 48,2 FPS

    My verdict? NOT BAD AT ALL!

    All thats left to do now is see how stock 7.2 from ATI stack up against those. I will do that tomorrow :)
    EDIT: better yet, lets see how 7.3 will do.

    Edit 2 :

    Ok done testing with ATi 7.2 drivers.

    Catalyst 7.2 : 9216 3DMarks
    GT1 - Return To Proxycon 40,1 FPS
    GT2 - Firefly Forest 26,1 FPS
    GT3 - Canyon Flight 47,8 FPS
