ATI Driver Update Soon
10:49 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Accelerate Your Mac received word from ATI about a possible driver update
for those PCI Radeon owners having issues with the cards. Many with the new
cards have complained of poor game performance and visual anomalies. Apparently,
the new drivers are in testing now, and could be out within a week. Here's a
clip:

I don't know of a specific release date unfortunately, however the idea is to have it out this week. As far as we know all of the driver issues were resolved late last week and it's being QA'd right now on a wide variety of machines to ensure that it works smoothly across the board. As soon as QA signs off on it, it'll be available for downloading.
This is great news for those who are skeptical ATI can fix the problem in a hurry.
Hopefully, the new drivers will also support some of the other newly-implemented
features in Apple's OpenGL 1.2.1, such as full-scene anti-aliasing. We'll keep you
posted as soon as anything becomes available, so stay tuned.
