How many people are using the Omega drivers and how many are using the ATI drivers? Do the omegas increase performance of or quality at the expense of performance? I used them ages ago but cant remember how they were.
they improve quality, stability and compatibility at the expense of performance....back when the 8500 first came out they were the only drivers many could get to work....but now i would suggest using the Ati drivers unless you have a problem...
I trust in the people I know who have tried them, and they didn't notice much image quality improvement... however, there is improvement when you can't play a game with the official drivers but can with the omega's (in which case ANY image is improvement ).
It is definitely noticeable on my 7500. I guess it could be described to look like images have a denser fill rate. Colors are richer and have more punch. Yes there is a very slight speed hit.
I am not positive but I think they’re mainly for win98 users.
Go to DriverHeaven.net forum if you’d like to read all the feedback on these drivers. I wouldn’t be surprised to see an Omega based on the beta 7.79 really soon.
I am currently using the Omega 2.4.62’s based on the CAT 2.3 and love'm.
