    I downloaded the driver, but it won't install on my HD 2600 XT...

    Can someone please tell me, what patchscript I have to run or what else I have to do to make that particualr driver install with my HD 2600 XT?

    Thanx!

    Did you use the driver for the 2900XT or the 2600XT?
    You need to use the specially modded driver intended for 2600XT ( http://www.newdisk.cn/?wesley8 )

    For those who got the v8600 mod to work and have dual monitors were there any problems or glitches with the monitors like with v7350 mod?

    tested on xp sp2 x86, cpu e4500, mb 965g-ds3, 2x1 gigs 800mhz, specviweperf 10, test - maya

    2600 pro default driver (provided on sapphire retail cd)

    Test # Weight () Frames/sec
    1 11.00 47.40
    2 11.00 24.80
    3 11.00 19.10
    4 11.00 43.10
    5 12.00 42.00
    6 11.00 17.80
    7 11.00 14.80
    8 11.00 14.80
    9 11.00 39.30
    Weighted Geometric Mean = 26.52

    v3600 driver mod (just installed the driver, no aditional setup)

    Test # Weight () Frames/sec
    1 11.00 51.70
    2 11.00 68.00
    3 11.00 53.30
    4 11.00 92.20
    5 12.00 158.00
    6 11.00 140.00
    7 11.00 84.80
    8 11.00 84.80
    9 11.00 189.00
    Weighted Geometric Mean = 93.47




    that's 4 times the result i get with my current setup (8800gts)

    Awesome.
    But it would be better with 64 bit... (2gb of RAM are too few).
    I hope that releasers will be able to make this in 64 bit too (XP & Vista).

    Thank you!

    unrar, and start the script (first time it never start, but second is allright)

    here is some test for comparing

    nice, but nowhere near the ancient dailytech results for the HD2900@FireGL

    while in previous generations there seemed to be not much of a difference in specviewperf results for the cheap and the more expensive firegl cards (e.g. modded x1600 and x1950 had very similar results), this time it seems you actually can get more than a 2x increase going from a 2600 to a 2900

    we'll see, as soon as somebody posts the results for a modded 2900...

    a 100$ card scoring 93 in maya i think is impressive.
    i'm gonna buy that card (2600pro) and use it for my second pc.

    I'm interested in buying a new card for softmodding cause i'm doing a lot of cad: autocad 3dsmax revit...

    so would a 2600xt be a good choice ? i now have a 7600gt (and that cannot be softmodded:-( )

    on the other hand, i can get a geforce 6800gt for about 50$ on ebay

    which of softmodded 6800gt or 2600xt will give me the best performance ?
    can a 2600pro do as good - plus point being passive cooler!

    thx a lot for giving me the best advice ;-)

    According to me Quadro-modded Geforce 6800GT is a little less than twice worce than ATI 2600XT, modded to FireGL 5600. On the other hand, ATI 2600XT is more than 2.5 times more expensive. The choice is yours...

    Well, it's getting hard to find 6800 GT & Ultra cards and usually, their warranty is either expired or you will get an unmodable 7xxx card as a replacement. Also, driver developement for those cards is kinda being suspended - for example, I found out that I will have to use the 91.36 drivers instead of the newest 16X ones if I want stability.
    With the 2600XT, you get a new card with warranty, DX10 capability and further driver improvements.

    AW MAN! I just got my X1950pro ... Is HD2600 better than X1950 pro at modding? I mean results from all the tests.

    "virtualex" scored over 90 in specviewperf 10 with 2600, and on my x1950xt moded I get 84 (test using one core on cpu)........ plus with 2600 you get DX10 support and it costs around 100$.

    Im building new pc and canceled the order of x1950xt. I decided to go with 2600pro (128 bit). Probably my new pc will be ready tomorow for testing and I will post specviewperf results here.

    If we could only do this mode on x64.........................

    haha
    just ran SPECview on my 7600gt and it scored a mighty 17,6 in Maya !
    Well, I think i'm going for a 2600xt - price is about 120€ so great value i guess

    Just one last question, though i'm not sure this is the right thread:
    My motherboard is a asus a8n SLI premium (nforce 4);
    will there be any problem running an ATI card on it ?
