New Radeon Drivers Not Cool

The 7184 (I think it is) drivers are not good for Radeon LE. I tried them out and got 500 less points on 3dMark2001 and lower framerates in games. Not sure why. Did anybody else try these yet and if you did what do you think?

The Radeon is not about frame rate. IMHO, they are tweaked to give the best picture quality, with an adequate frame rate, rather than sacrificing quality for speed (รก la GeF2.....)

Comparing a GeF2 and a Radeon DDR, there is a noticable decrease in picture quality and colour richness with the GeF2......

I know, but wouldn't you want those 500 points that I had on the Radeon before the new drivers back?
