Isn't it though? I know ATI was bought out, but it's like they completely disappeared.

I scored 11894 in 3DMark05 (stock GPU) with the new 6.10's<br><br>
The best thing for me is that I can now reach 722 core on stock voltages!<br><br>
Before these drivers I needed 1.500v to get 722 core, now I only need 1.425v.....time to up the voltage and push for more, I reckon I can ease past 800 with 1.500v probably more

A little off-topic, but what's WDM?

It's the driver used to capture video from another device. For example, I use it to capture the video output from my consoles so I can play on my monitor.

Windows driver model? Not really sure on that, probably wrong.<br><br>
Also I tried oblivion. 1680X1050, 4XAA, 8XAF, HDR, all sliders max, 30 fps outside, 60 fps inside, 15 fps outside oblivion gates and 40-60 in them. That's quite a bit faster than the chuck patch was getting me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

800 core was a bit optimistic <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> I managed 735 core and 1080 mem with these drivers.<br><br>
A little boost with slightly less voltage than I had on 6.9's to reach 722/1071<br><br>
Nuclear, did you boost voltage to get the core speed you have?

Ahhh I see.......so I don't really need to install WDM? I don't have any TV tuner card and my card isn't AIW.<br><br>
Oh and can somebody see if the 6.10 CCC is good enough to keep? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">
