Forgive my ignorance, but what exactly is "Cat 6.8"?

The Ati newshound scoops it again! Thanks Hopper, see you back here for the comparison tests? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

okb001 - Cats are Ati Catalyst drivers, which are updated monthly - hence 6.8 = August '06. Usually an improvement for Ati graphics - but lacking in pilchards and cream....

Or so my advisors tell me http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v458/brando6BL/The_dangerous_brothers.jpg

Wow I almost went rushing off to download them , a regular ritual of mine...then I remembered Im running an nVidia 6600GT for the last week!My X800XT PE AGP is retired as my psu blew up either after or causing a capacitor to be separated from my mobo.
Im pleasantly surprised with the performance of the budget/mid range 6600gt (PCI Express) versus the previously top of the range X800XT PE.Of course there are a couple of negative quirks about the nVidia cards(see separate post) in IL2/FB/PF but they also give much higher frame rates in this game as a family compared with the ATIs .
The ATI drivers seem to have stabilised in their improvements lately.6.1-6.3 ish seemed to be BIG leaps forward

HEHE I did the same thing the first time I saw a new Cat release being talked about in here after I started running this nVidia card. Habit I guess. Kinda funny too.
