what options are you actually using? and are you still using 8.41 or have you moved to 8.42?My IGP(ATI Radeon X1200) was working fine with 8.40, and I managed to get it working with 8.41, and I noticed this:
In both, I get general graphical corruption on the desktop, for example, when making a box with the mouse. Videos sometimes worked, sometimes not :/ But my glxgears went from 800~850 to 1200~1250 between the drivers. and most games had noticeable improvement.
Oh. So HyperMemory is only for IGPs with Integrated Memory of its own, like TurboCache?You're probably UMA-only with that GPU- I've not seen a Hypermemory option with anything using it.
Sadly, I know that.The X1200 moniker is really deceptive. You'd think you had a hot R500 series GPU with that name- it's got more in common with the X700 than the X1xxx series parts and it's a crippled X700 at that. No Vertex Shaders- no hardware TCL which means you're only slightly better than a GMA 950 in performance at best.
I wasn't tricked by the name though, I looked it up before buying this MoBo.
But the slightly better performance than GMA 950.. I'd disagree with that.
My friend has a similar PC to mine, Intel C2D processor, 1 GB RAM, and an Intel GMA X3000, and the latest drivers, yet his PC struggles with Half Life 2 with most settings on Low at 800x600, while my PC ( with the Radeon X1200) can run it with most settings at medium or high and HDR enabled at 1024x768. And most other games are this way.
Now I wouldn't call that a slight performance increase :P
