    Odd, cause I have it.

    These fixed a few querky OGL problems I had with The Specialists [Steam] so I can now use OGL instead of D3D thankfully. :)

    I don't like to say this without any evidence, but compared to 4.7b, UT2004 seems smoother. It would appear the framerate remains in a more constant range [90-120] rather than jumping around from 70-150 or something.

    I'd benchmark but I'd rather be off to play some more games. :)

    SL2 do you play competitively in any half-life mods? I'm a main player in day of defeat, and I've had my fair share of league'ing in counter-strike..

    As for the 4.7 drivers, I don't see any differences yet, but I don't benchmark much. I could care less what a benchmark tells me, as to how I could be getting ten thousand fps in a game, and a benchmark telling me that my stuff sucks.

    Benchmarking has gone too far, there are a lot of gayfers going around saying

    "LIEK OMG!, YOUR COMP SUX I GOT MORE 3D MARKS THAN YOU!"

    Oh and SL2 this is not against you or anyone in particular, but I think you all get the point right?

    Only game i've tried up to now is UT2004, and its seems to look and play smoother. I'm happy.

    I did a quick Aquamark check and didn't get a change, but at least it's running on final drivers which makes me happy. I need a new CPU badly :(

    These drivers are very good compared to the 4.6 and 4.7b's. I gained 400 3dmark2003 points, and 800 3dmark2001se points.

    Boy o boy - I tell you something...

    You find a jaggie in Half-Life or CS/DoD at 12xFSAA and I will give you a cookie!

    OMG - TAA is amazing! Wow.

    Just for kicks I am using 6xFSAA with TAA on at the moment, and everything plays real nice a smooth! amazing :)



    I have tried:
    UT2004 (seems very smooth) - TAA is noticable.
    FarCry (seems smoother) - TAA is definately noticable when its on at 2xFSAA normal.
    BF1942 - amazing at virtual 8xAA!
    And many others are quite outstanding too :)

    The best Cat release by a looong way IMHO.

    ...

    Maybe it's just me but I think textures look blurry in UT2K4 with these drivers... Even at highest texture quality :(

    Have anybody else noticed?
