Dave, at the risk of sounding like a leech... Do you think you could do some uploadskis?

I would, but Im currently uploading some big tech demos :\

And you do a better job of labeling them and stuff.

Also how do the 5.7s compare for you?

Well thats what you get paid for after all.

By the way, do you have many of the ATI tech demos lying around that you could put up? Im trying to put the Nvidia collection up now including the new mad mod mike (the guy that looks like Robbie) and Luna (owner of the most brilliant 3D assets since Ruby).

yes i have them all. i'll do those as well. initial benchmarks have performance down by half. the auto-clockc config utility on the x850 series is working now tho, and has pretty much matched the clocks i had already determined as stable.

got some stuff to check, and will let everyone know how this driver pans out. looks kinda off to a bad start.

for those that still use 128/64mb cards....

Quote:
Performance Improvements

Enhancements to our driver's internal memory management bring significant benefits to 64MB and 128MB framebuffer configurations in Catalyst™ 5.7.

The resulting performance gains are most apparent in high resolution, everything on modes, when running applications that use a significant amount of graphics memory. Examples include:

  • 5-15% gains in 3DMark05 on some products
  • 20-60% gain in Far Cry Regulator across multiple settings
  • 25-60% gains in Half-Life 2 at 1600x1200 4xAA 8xAF
  • 40-60% gains in UT2004 at 1600x1200 6xAA 16xAF
  • 50-100% improvement in Comanche4 at 1600x1200 6xAA 16xAF
  • 50-200% gains in certain ShaderMark tests at high resolution

http://www2.ati.com/drivers/images/cat57/clipbrd.gif
Note: The exact magnitude of these performance benefits will vary depending on the product configuration, clock speeds and a
vailable system memory. All of the changes noted are specific to 64MB and 128MB framebuffer configurations. Performance of 256MB and 512MB boards is already very good at these settings.
Additionally, an improvement in our OpenGL driver brings a gain of approximately 10-15% to the Unigraphics test in SPECviewperf. This improvement is not framebuffer-specific.
