7500 & DirectX 8.1

OK... I have been having problems with my Radeon 7500... reading the threads posted in here I am beginning to believe the issue is that the 7500 won't run as well on DirectX 8 as earlier versions.... is this correct...???

Anyone?

I saw a comparison benchmark on anandtech, and for whatever reason at 1024x768 that card really stunk, and those tests were with directx 8.1 ... they felt it might be a drivers issue.

Of course, that is my resolution... maybe, I'll go down to 800X600 and see what i can see...

Thanks Pinky...

Kris::All the Radeon vid cards use the same drivers. I just downloaded the 9016 set yesterday and replaced the 9008 set that I had been using. There are some features that are really a good improvement over the 9008. It loads the "TableFogTable" "WFogTable" and "ZFogTable" in the driver section of the registry. These can be tweaked for better performance if need be. I have tried this and my vid card performed worse, so I restored them back to default settings. But the lines are there if they need be edited. The earlier versions I did not notice these lines.

These drivers are DirecTX8.1 only. Must have 8.1 running or the drivers don't want to install. I was using a VIVO 64 (se) card previous and 8.1 ran on it great. I really don't see any problems with the 9016 drivers and 8.1 with the 7500.. And you should not have to lower the resolution to 800x600. 1024x768 is the lowest I ever have. (depends on the size of the screen)

Why do you not try this and see. It is not a big deal to change if you feel it does not work for you.
