Interesting to note you no longer need the Chuck patch for Oblivion.

from the release notes:
"HDR + Anti-Aliasing support for The Elder Scrolls Oblivion - Users no longer need to download and install the Chuck patch - the Direct3D driver now includes native support for High Dynamic Range and Anti-Aliasing with The Elder Scrolls Oblivion. "

It was a guy from ATI named Chuck. :D 

Nice to see ATI has moved beyond the "proof of concept" "unsupported" patch to putting it in the drivers.

And yeah, the performance bit looked good. Too bad it was a crossfire boost and not a single card boost.

So, if I have an old driver/cat version and the chuck patch, is there any benefit to getting cat 6.10?

WOOHOO!!!..... wait, what's HDR I don't see that option on my MRX700. :twisted:

Just downloading the official mobiles right now, was playing with the betas before, did they change the logo and colour of the CCC yet? :mrgreen:

Might have to give the new official drivers a shot. I'm using Omega's modded drivers currently, because they seem to fix a framerate problem in World of Warcraft...a game that my X1900XT really shouldn't have a problem with.

Used the officials, had the problem and didn't really think about it, gave the Omegas a try and the problem went away. The new officials came out a few weeks ago, tried them, and the problem came back. Went back to the Omegas, no more drop.

Granted I'm not running Crossfire (a little tough to do on an SLI motherboard........and a budget), but I'll give them a shot.

EDIT: The new drivers fixed my WoW problem, so that's a nice step. They also fixed a "halting" problem when alt-tabbing out of a full-screen application, even at native resolution.

FAQ! The install crapped out mid install, gonna try again before shutting down for the night.

EDIT: OK, no problemo now, but WindowsDefender kept it from finishing, killed the process and bang, done. So watch it boyz, it can hang due to that.

booyah! Under "Products Supported", finally my X1950XTX made the list.
Thanks for posting this announcement. I have been waiting over a month and a half for ATI to release a driver that supports my card.
