It was pretty clear that the driver of the Radeon 9000 PRO test sample was still in the beta stages, which was rather surprising, considering the imminent product launch. At the time of the test, the driver could only be used with the Radeon 9000. For testing the Radeon 7500 and Radeon 8500, we used the latest official Catalyst driver. NVIDIA's test cards were tested with the reference driver v29.42 and the Xabre was tested with v3.00.53.
