ATI 9.11 beta drivers. Catalyst 8.67 08/13/2009 (the 5XXX drivers are Catalyst 8.66.6 06/10/2009)

http://download2-developer.amd.com/a...vista-win7.zip

As the file name says these are for Vista and Windows 7. I installed them on Windows 7 X64, no idea yet if they work on X86.

Only know bugs so far are a new X-Fire power saving feature will cause GPUZ to freeze up.

x1900 series owners, please confirm which version is working well in Windows 7.

Also, what's the benefit of CCC as opposed to the display drivers alone?

I'm using an X1600 -- which is the same generation as the X1900, and as far as I can tell, the so-called 9.8 "legacy" drivers recently released are the same as the earlier 9.3 legacy drivers. So, either should work equally well, and nothing else newer than 9.3 will work with your card.

The advantages are that CCC allows you to set 3D attributes that affect display effects.

Thanks for the reply Mark. I'm still using the drivers that came with Windows 7. All is well, but I've not tried any demanding games... yet.

I don't know enough about video drivers to determine if I will benefit from the ATI 9.8 legacy drivers. Any comments would be appreciated

I've installed CCC in the past but had no use for the tweaking, so I'd prefer the drivers only, if possible.

No they're not. Post #4 here,

Plus it shouldn't really be called 9.8 since it isn't the same as the regular 9.8 drivers and if it was called 9.8 in the file versions then people would be expecting the same fixes etc.
explains the differences.
