Reformatting is in my near future.
Any body else with 2900 CF try these out?
Just tried them and yes they caused more problems than they solved. The strange thing is from Cat 7.10 to 8.2 they always worked fine with improvements here and there. But 8.3 is just downright horrible.
I tried 8.3 back when it was released and scored just over 10,000 in 3dMark06 a 7k drop for me. Crysis also went from 40fps to 14 with no AA DX9 High 1280 X 1024.
Just gave 8.3 + hotfix another run.....ewww. Strange performance, really strange.. Return to Proxycon starts at 90+ fps and gradually goes down to 15fps. Firefly forest starts off at 100+ fps and gradually goes down to 20+fps. Then the CPU test starts and I get a blank screen, a quick Ctrl + Alt + Del and XP comes back on screen with 3dmark giving me the message "Display has changed" so never got a chance to see how bad the score was after that.
When installing the hotfix I also got a message saying one of the ATI files was newer than the current one being installed (sorry never took note of the filename)
Aww well, I'm going back to 8.2, hopefully I can go back without any problems.
