    For those of you who want the latest Catalyst 8.8BETA driver (build: 8.52.6) working with other cards than the HD4870X2, I've made a modified version working with basically every AMD/ATI!


    I also made a few tweaks, like adding the latest Catalyst Control Center (the one from 8.52.4 actually has a newer build than the one within the build 8.52.6 package, also added ATI AVIVO which was missing etc..!


    AMD/ATI Catalyst Driver 8.8BETA (Build: 8.52.6) with latest Catalyst Control Panel, ATI AVIVO etc.. for Windows XP 32bit

    Thx. I hate 3dmark06 as much as most of you, but suprisingly I got 300 points more with these drivers in crossfire than on the previous 8.7´s. I got a 18290 3DMarks points, thats the highest ever I got my self. 17967 3DMarks is the one before with driver 8.7 ?? But I truely like these drivers, and I think most of us with xfire are to have some real nice drivers in the near future, I love that they are selling the 4800x2, I wouldnt buy it, but it makes Crossfire to be first on the to do list with the driver teams from AMD/ATI.

    Oh btw, im new to Xfire on ATI, is my 3dmark score about where it should be??? I had huge difference between the sm2.0 and sm3.0 scores, sm2.0 had 6887 and sm3.0 had 9254. Is this normal or can i up my total score somehow to, is there a way to make sm2.0 score equal the sm3???

    Thx Guys. For all help, in the future.

    Yeah, uh, Vista please for those 8.52.6 ones? With SP1 for Vista now there's no reason why everyone shouldn't be running it. It's vastly superior to XP. (and I hate Windows in general).

    Anyone notice some fairly bad screen tearing (even with vsync on) issues with the 8.52.2 beta?

    Also, vista version for 8.52.6 please :D

    bigger doesn't always mean better/newer. if memory serves me correct they have different teams working on drivers (trying to fix different things). It is possible the beta drivers aren't compiled to include all the fixes from everyone. While 8.52.2 team made Crysis enhancements, 8.52.6 team does not, but may have a fix for Conan.

    The Catalyst BETA 8.8 (8.54-080805n) version fix the white dots error in directx10 shadows (Crysis, Assassin's Creed).

    Does the 8.52.6 fix the error too? :confused:

    White DOTS? I have huge white SQUARES in DX10 in Crysis :D That's on final 8.7..
    Luckily I'm done with the game ;) But if it fixes this problem, it would be nice to know :)

    I've kinda lost track in this 8.8BETA build world..


    Which one is the latest build?

    - The 8.526.6 BETA ones?
    - The 8.54 BETA ones?
    - The 8.52.2 BETA ones?

    THESE (the betas linked in THIS thread) seem to be OK for me.

    I play mostly Flight Simulator X and there is no real difference between these and the official 8.7s, or the prior 8.7 Betas. Granted, FS doesn't need 100+FPS, but I have my frames locked at 48FPS and can fly in heavy areas (cities) with lots of buildings at maintain close to 48FPS on average running at 1680x1050x32.

    It will be interesting to see how the official 8.8's do in FSX, but also in games like the upcoming "Mercenaries 2: World in Flames" which is being released on the PC as well as console systems.
