Not much, just lost 1 fps on certain tracks i use to test with.

The last few drivers ATI released had no effect at all on my fps. Also, the last few patches for this sim did not. I will have to play with the new driver for a bit, if it has some other redeeming quality, then maybe I don't need that extra fps.

I run 1200x1600 on perfect mode, with an x850xt PE. Maybe at lower resolutions, where somebody has to use more effects of some sort to make things look better the driver would help more. It is supposed to help open GL framerates up to 30% with some applications.

The 30% boost in OpenGL is only for the 1X00 series of cards with their new memory architecture, so your outta luck with the older stuff.

Does this mean that you would still buy nVidia even if ATi had a card that was better and cheaper?

Since I bought my first 3d graphics card - a 3DFX Voodoo 1, I've never had a brand loyalty. I always bought the best card available with my budget.

I can understand people being loyal to a make of car or something, but not a pc component http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
