beedubuya, would you mind posting your old benchmark scores to have something to compare to? By the way, did you see the new THG videocard guide? Very interesting stuff.

What site are you finding these at? is it on ATI's site or some where else? Is it developed by ATI?

Are they truly better than ATI drivers? Some people I know dont like them.

I have had massive improvement in everything (Doom3,Farcry, 3dmark05,aquamark.) The only benchmark I did not show an improvement was in 3dmark03. Give them a try, worst come to worst you can just reinstall the ati drivers if you are unhappy.
I checked out other forums, it appears that most people who are getting great improvements are using gfx cards w/ 256ram.

I have seen a 1200+ increase in 3DMark05 from the Omega drivers alone.
