is need for speed still buggy in the 3.9 drivers?
cause it sure is in the 3.6 & 3.8 .

Well actually I can not give you an advise on that.
I don't play nfs, and I didn't test it also.

I play NFS with 3.9 and a R9700Pro without problems

I still got the 3.6 and with motion blur on, the frame rate drops like hell on my 9500 PRO

think i need to install the 3.9

got XP SP1 + DX9.1b + 3.9 , no bugs
check your driver quality settings, but them all to default.

you should also test omega drivers

jmke 26th November 2003 19:36

180 was a nice number don't you think ;)
rule of thumb for the omega drivers: more features, more quality/performance options, at default same performance, at highest quality setttings a little slower then catalyst @ high settings, due to the omega upping the bar a nudge higher.
