    I know there's a lot of optimism about forthcoming driver sets from ATi, but the dev site remains unchanged and I'm starting to worry that the R200 teams have been weakened as efforts focus on brining the Rv250 and R300 to market. In the end it's probably the right move (don't want the same kind of driver b*tching that the R200 caused), but I sure hope the polishing continues.

    Was I rambling? Sorry.

    nooo, impossible, you might not be looking in the right place
    check all the folders on the ftp, give us something, even a dll will do :D ;)

    seriously, I thought there were 2 different teams working on drivers, one for R200 and the other one for R300??
    It would not make much sense to pull some ppl from one team right now, right?

    i dont think so, at least i *hope* not. besides the whole idea is with _UNIFIED_ driversets from ATI, correct? so even if they have started dev on r300 versions, we will all benefit.


    ;) :p

    Re:

    The teams were for developing the cards

    The dev site is a html page, so no searching, just enter and see the date of the drivers on the button

    Re:

    Yeah, but the drivers will come optimized for the r200, so no much performance increase, and the bugs of the r300 will come to the r200.

    But personally I think that they are making a good driver set and since they don't want it leaked and want to get the hit on nVidia, leaking drivers will not help for reviews (they use lastest from ati...)

    You're kidding, right?

    "Driver team"? Didn't you know? The ATI "driver team" is a guy named Earl who works alone in a dark corner office in the basement. ;)

    Re:

    20 if cool driver in mem then goto Rip_driver

    30 End
    Rip_driver: 40 Replace "Cyborg/Omega " With "KillerSneak!"
    50 Save Driver "Blackops! V.018237475"
