I've been using my 5970 for a few days now. Works absolutely fine on Win7. Decided to do some benches in Xp and uh.. There are no 5900 series drivers for Xp.


Anyone got any clues? It doesn't make sense to not support Xp when it still has such a large market share. You think they're just late with drivers?

It's a temporary thing right?


So you're saying the drivers are late? or are they not coming at all?

There are XP drivers (both 64 bit and 32 bit) for all of the 5800 series cards.

In fact there is a 9.12 beta out that should work with the 5970 (I am currently runnng the 9.12. It fixed some issues I was having).

I'll give it a try with my 5970 when I get a chance to test the card.

Well Xp still has like.. 50%? market share?

32bit actually. But if you can find some for 64bit. I'll just bench with 64.

I believe these don't support 5900 series card.
