ATI Posts July Driver Update; Radeon PCI, 7000 Improvements
1:51 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

The helpful folks at ATI informed us that they have released yet another driver update for their retail graphics cards, which include the original Radeon AGP and PCI, Rage Orion, Radeon 7000, and Radeon 8500. Again, the standard disclaimer regarding ATI OEM products apply: the driver update will function, but is not supported by ATI or Apple. Here is some more information on the driver update itself:

Improved RADEON PCI & RADEON 7000 performance
Recent changes and optimizations will show substantial performance improvements in most applications. These changes apply to both 3D and 2D content (example: Quake 3 improvements in frame rates of up to 30% for RADEON PCI, depending on system and game configuration).

Misc. Game Notes
This release of RADEON and Rage 128 drivers address some issues and provide performance improvements with some existing games, as well as new games just made available or about to be released. Please be aware that some games will require that these newest ATI drivers be installed if they are to be run at all.

Before running the installer, please read the documentation below. Be sure to post your experiences with the new drivers in the IMG forums.
