erek is still being judged by the masses

ATI Technologies FireGL/FirePro mods? IQ...

I have read (very old 2002ish Maximum PC) articles that Workstation class drivers offer subpixel accuracy over Gaming drivers. This is curious to me as they also mention how it's possible to see gaps in between textures, etc with inaccurate gaming drivers. Well has anyone observed the superior visual Image quality of using FirePro/FireGL drivers, and if there is a noticable difference... has anyone softmodded their RV770 class cards to FirePro/FireGL? I would definitely prefer accuracy over speed.

PS. i did find this link, which suggests the possibility of softmods for the Radeon HD 4800; http://lounge.ego-farms.com/showthread.php?p=19957

kn00tcn is still being judged by the masses


i've been too lazy to soft mod my 9800pro & x800xtpe (if they were moddable, think they were if i remember)

that thread mentioned

"Modded ATI 4870 1 GB into V8700 - 3dsmax - 34.10
Standard ATI 4870 1 GB - 3dsmax- 16.92"

max has a gpu bench?
AMD/ATI Catalyst Driver Profiles
OpenGL startup crash fix #1 / fix #2 (for < radeon 6000 cards?)
better crossfire for Section8 Prejudice, Hydrophobia, UDK
