I score higher with ATI drivers than Omega drivers.

Also Omega displays funny text in Warcraft III making it nearly unreadable.

My opinion: Fun to try, worthless in the end as they are just tweaked ATI drivers.

after installing the Omega 2590 drivers for my ATI 9800 pro 256, i ran at a higher frame rate by about 10 frames, in tribes vengeance, and there was no difference in dawn of war.

I did notice some that the textures were not as crisp as they were with the catalyst drivers, and there was some problems with items that glow.

Aaaaa... Nvidia drivers are for Nvidia cards, not ATI.
-------------------------
i have a easy question...

i curently only have a old gforce2. and im familiar with Nvidias display, in advanced display settings.

i saw ATI's display setup, in advanced display settings, on someone elses comp. and it looked a little disorganized, and not as thought out as Nvidia... was curiouse though, do the Omega drivers change the display settings screen?

Do any nVidia users here use, or have used the Omega drivers?
