So? Have you read what everybody else is getting?

Seems like most of them went back to 3.7's.

LOL buzz
however im keeping this driver installed too many features to pass this one /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
well i messed up the 1st installation, but i uninstall it with the new ATI un-installer, that will wipe out anything ATI and reinstall it again and voila it work like charm, FB is the only game that got lower FPS for me. but i dont play FB every hours though

Being the new ATI kid on the block (had card 1 week), I can't get mine to run Perfect without looking like I'm online with a ping of 2000. I understand the hardware/software, but went back to 3.7 for now. Will go at it again this weekend.

You two are only seeing issues with the OGL driver...do like Hunter said in his post in the Cat 3.8 thread below in this forum and unpack the OGL driver from the Cat 3.7 and paste it into your System32 directory and you have the best of both worlds.

This has benn noted Dayak /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Are you getting the little red timer in the bottom right of the screen with "perfect"?

I noticed even though the fps is abysmal the IQ seems to be better.

I also experienced the FPS drop with Cat 3.8's. I went back to the Omega 3.7's, they were the best ones anyway.

Terrible, just terrible. For the first time, FB went completely unplayable.

Massive stuttering, blinking textures, uglier graphics.

Went back to 3.4 and everything, except screenshot taking was fine with IL2 again.

There must be something very wrong with catalyst, or then Ati really wants that name to mean something...literally.

crapcrapcrap, thats mt opinion. I hope that catalyst driver builders get a grip of themselves soon.

I've been using the Cat 3.2's. Every release since then has given me at least a 10% performance drop. I'm running a 7200 32MB DDR.

That sounds great to me. I glady sacrifice a fps from 35-34 by getting better image quality /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Yes IQ=Image Quality.

I will be getting the drivers by mail next week both 3,7 and 3,8. I am on a 56 kb line and it takes to much time and gets to expensive downloading them myself.

Will get a 10 mb line within a months though /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
