catalyst 4.9 beta publically released to improve fps for Doom 3.

Have tested with IL2 AEP and in perfect have a slight (1-2) fps increase over the Catalyst 4.8 beta, which in turn was 2-3 fps faster than the 4.7 official release.

My system is:
AthlonXP 3000+
ATI 9600XT
2x AA, 2x Aniso, 1152 x 864 res, perfect settings, Forest=3. Water=0.
Black Death avg. 30fps

Seems these are worth a try, anyone else have any comments?

Well, folks, in the 3D mark 2003 score
and in the UT 2003 benchmark there is a
pronounced improvment.

The CPU score jumped from a best of 755
to a score of 966!

Overall the improvment was 161 over 84 UT 2003
to 168 over 88 at 1200x1600 32 bit.

Score in the 3D mark was a jump from 7381 to 7457.

I re-booted and tried again, same scores within
a gnat's lash.

FB in perfect mode seems the same or slightly faster.

Best drivers yet out of ATI.

Da...

Yup, that was the LAST thing I expected.
i am inching up on my CPU overclock again.
I just got a 999 CPU score and a 7600
benchmark.
These ATI drivers seem much more stable
and I am able to push harder.
My previous post was with all the clock settings
where I used to run them.
