  1. I hope you bought it for the same price as a Raedon 8500, ATI's FireGL are the exact same cards as other Radeons, they're priced higher because ATI made it "impossible" to install the professional CAD optimized drivers to run a Radeon BUT UnWinder, a russian programmer found a way to turn a Radeon into a <A HREF="http://nvworld.ru/docs/sfgl_e.html" target="_new">FireGL</A>

    That means you could have bought a Radeon 9700 and turned it into a FireGL X1 FOR FREE !

  2. I should wear a t-shirt with ur sig.

    Hilbert space is a big place.
  3. But my question is
    "Will it give me more performormance more than ordinary Radeon 8800 ??". If not, can i install radeon 8800's driver on it, for better performance
    so...
  4. There is no Radeon 8800, the FireGL 8800 is a Radeon 8500 core simply on different drivers. Now you may be able to flash the cad and run it like an R8500, but WHY? Simply sell your card and buy a new one if you want to do that, you could probably get a 9500 for the money you could get for a complete FireGL 8800, which would have MUCH better performance, heck you could probably BUY an 8500 and still have some money left over.

    In any case how/why did you get a FireGL? It's definitely NOT a gaming card.

  5. Now what

    Anyone who wants to buy that from me
