    while the OGL driver is older than the march 29th release (10.3b OGL4.0 preview...*image below*), the 2D-3D driver versions are actually newer...:3eyes:

    its simply listed as the..''8.73 driver package''

    source

    so...fill your boots :banana:

    This is an early internal build of what should be Cat 10.5.

    I had an earlier 8.72.0 internal build (what 10.4 should be based on) and these are newer based on driver build.

    They seem highly Beta.

    Someone test these with BC2 and see if they get a performance boost. :)

    these are ''WOW'' drivers....... BFBC2 performance is much better than all 10.3 revisions, im averaging 80-100fps fully maxed now, at least 10fps gain (maybe more) IMO....

    & these drivers have replaced the 2nd GPU temp on the 5970 which vanished after 9.12....its back!! :):)

    great work ATI.....

    why.? :D it depends on each system separately, some people consider 10.3b best, some others ogl4 29march..but..!!

    as for me, even in overclocking is more stable these here..i dont get artifacts in grand theft auto IV for example with memory's upper limit..:rolleyes::cool:

    installed over the top, but these need a reboot.....:)

    well, here it is folks.... these runs are 24hrs apart.

    here's a stock GPU run...not much, but its gonna boost all games by a few fps. :infinity:

    10.3b = 21,561

    8.73 package (10.x) = 22,079
