The new Radeon 8500 drivers have been officially released by none other than ATI. Version 5.13.01.6037

Just curious if anyone has installed them yet, and if they improve performance in any way. I installed the last update and there still "smokin". Don't want to mess with the smooth runnin if theres no need.

I just tried the new ones for win 98 (9016, I think, released march 20), my 3dmark scores went up a couple hundred and it looked very good, i.e. no errors or gaps in image.

I have to say starting with the 6011 drivers, ATI's drivers have been pretty darn good, very few problems.. Makes me look forward to the R300 release, should start out with a good driver set for a change..
