Attention - this is the OLD download section of, click here to visit the new and up-to date one.
Based on The ATI Catalyst 5.8 Drivers
-COPP Disabled
-DHzp Video Acceleration Tweaks
-Rewritten Doom3 and HL2/CSS Autoexec
-Rewritten tweak code base
-New Installer
-New Author Jaime "Blackboost" Vazquez Everyone welcome him aboard he's done a great job with these!
-Radlinker Included Thanks to ChrisW for permission to use it
-Mobility support for all cards should be included, we don't have beta testers with every version of mobility cards so we have no way of verifying this. If the driver's will not install directly from our installer navigate to the directory you installed to and run the setup.exe from the Driver and the CP folder to install.

Known Issues
-Overdrive sometimes shows 0 degrees
-AGP Texture's greyed out in dxdiag in windows 2000, AGP texture acceleration works it's just greyed out.
-Flaky mobility installation at times

To Do-
-F.E.A.R. Specific optimizations
-BF2 Specific Optimizations
-Squeeking out more performance and eye candy
-Modifications to the installer to further automate installation
-9800SE to 9800XT Mod included
-Work out mobility installation issues
-Taking over the world

As always we concentrate on IQ without loss of performance as much as possible. Benchmarks aren't our game, if you want 10 more points in 3dmark these drivers aren't for you, if you want your games to look great and play great without stability issues then I think you'll enjoy our drivers.
