Forget it, catalyst drivers suck hard, and I fail to see hoiw AMD can manage to stay in the GPU business with such crap drivers.
Anyways, windows 9.8 catalyst will be out Monday, and can be had already if you know where to look. Let's just hope that the apocalypse has come and the linux catalysts actually have some sort of improvements in store, but I don't really have any hope as I gave up a couple releases ago... and especially since I've notice no mindbending chaniges inthe space-time continuum to indicate a wrinkle in the space-time continuum indicating quality AMD driver release.. [EDIT] OTOH I've noticed heightened aimless marketing BS from marketroids... along with teh supa awesome phenom ii 965 "wish we could catch up" release (2006 called and said he wants his CPUs back AMD) [/EDIT]
Anyone have a GT280M drop in for a GT725 notebook? I need a GPU that actually has working drivers... i.e. not an AMD part
A Shame that no one can send a patrol of lawyers after AMD for not providing useable support for their products...
