I just upgraded my pc and thought i would share the experience.
Old PC cpu P4 @ 4.01ghz to Q6600 @ 3 ghz
gpu x1950 pro to hd3870
new motherboard abit ip35-e
I just switched it all back on and it all just started straight away, i was quite surprised really as windoze
I ran glxgears and went from just under 6000 to 17000
using 7.12 driver.
AMD has had a positive effect on ati at last.
