Di seguito alcune delle principali novità di questi driver:

This release of the ATI Catalyst™ Software Suite includes Crossfire™ enhancements that enable the Alternate Frame Rendering (AFR) Crossfire rendering mode by default so that users will see significant performance benefits across all AFR compatible applications immediately (including newly released applications, so users do not have to wait for a future ATI Catalyst™ release to add Crossfire™ support for newly released titles). Future ATI Catalyst™ releases will add further Crossfire™ performance gains once new applications have been profiled specifically for Crossfire™.

c'è differenza se io installo solo i driver o driver+catalyst per quanto riguarda le prestazioni della scheda?
(ho una radeon 9550)

ccc

speriamo che prima o poi rifacciano il ccc in modo che nn necessiti del .Net Framework x girare la reputo una cagata...

Non installate solo i drivers

purtroppo il Catalyst va su .Net Framework e questo rende molto pesanti le centrali di controllo, tuttavia se nn installate, ma solo i drivers, nn vengono attivate tutte le funzionalità.
Esempio:
un noto programma di video-editing mi ha detto ke la mia scheda nn supportava le OpenGL;
un programma di modellazione 3D mi ha riferito la stessa cosa all'avvio.
Soluzione:
ho intallato driver e il resto, poi ho bloccato l'avvio di Ati-monnezze varie all'avvio del sistema, perché facevano paurosamente rallentare il PC sin dal log-in, e i messaggi di errore nn compaiono più.

Potresti indicarmi per favore quali sono gli elementi di avvio di ati che è possibile eliminare? Ho problemi di rallentamento anch'io sul mio muletto con una 9500pro@9700...

Mi conviene installare questi driver o per una 9500pro@9700 non ne vale la pena? grazie

Se hai la pazienza di aspettare presto NGOHQ rilascerà la versione dei Catalyst 7.1 con il vecchio Control Panel, che non ammazza il sistema come il CCC (che non è la versione italiana del ku klux klan) ma è il Catalyst Control Center.
Di solito ci vogliono pochi giorni.
Comunque anche se usi il noto RivaTuner potresti risolvere il problema.
Per installare la versione "base" senza nient'altro ti consiglio di eliminare prima le vecchie versioni presenti con i relativi "control panel" / "ccc".
