Recieved newer Cat drivers. Going to be testing this afternoon and re-doing all the charts if they bring a decent perfomance increase.

Did another batch of testing. The latest drivers that I received did not improve things overall. While some games were a bit faster, some crashed.

The only big difference with my 8.451-2.080123a-858... drivers were that Crysis performance was increased. If you are interested, here are the numbers with these drivers for that game: 64.9,61.8,61.4 [1024x768,1280x1024,1600x1200,no aa] 64.6, 62.6, 61.4 [w/ aa.]



Updated with an overclocking section today...
Hopefully 8.2 will bring out the best in this card, as it really seems like these Vista drivers just aren't cutting it right now.

Have we heard anything with the new Cat 8.3 Drivers? Also any chance of doing a CFX review of two of these cards?

Um, you can't use DX10 on Crysis unless you set it to "Very High" - "Medium" is just DX9 you twit. nVidia is still copying everything ATI does. HD3870X2, now 9800GTX2. Someone please stop this madness, and start making our money work!

Ummm.... Nvidia had the 1st multi-gpu on a single card, 7900GX2/7950gx2 anyone? Then ATi came out with the X1950 Pro Dual.
