ATi Doom3 Drivers and Some Other Goodies

Good evening everyone, how is my HH family doing?  With Doom3 being released today, I am sure many of you have spent the day fraging baddies, or in some cases, screaming like a little girl every time a monster jumps out of the shadows ;)  Nevertheless, just to aid you in your quest of getting the max FPS out of the game, here is a little treat from our friends at ATi.


ATI is making a pre-release version of its upcoming CATALYST 4.9 driver available to its customers (in conjunction with the recent release of Doom 3). This pre-WHQL driver will deliver a great experience for RADEON customers playing Doom 3. The beta driver is intended to get Doom 3 performance enhancements into the hands of gamers as soon as possible. Testing and qualification of the driver will continue and the WHQL certified CATALYST 4.9 driver will be posted in September and will include additional features and functionality.

Beta drivers are not supported by ATI's technical support teams. For other games and applications or for customers requiring a supported driver, ATI recommends that customers continue to use the WHQL certified CATALYST 4.7 driver or the WHQL certified CATALYST 4.8 driver which will be available shortly from

The beta driver can be downloaded form: HERE

 Corepad Mousing Surface Review and Competition @ HEXUS

"It's a simple design, gets all the mousing surface basics right, is easy to clean and does very little wrong. I like the aesthetic and I'm happy enough with it to replace my original Icemat (an excellent surface) with a Corepad for the long term."

 Raidmax Cobra 822 Gaming Case Review @ Madshrimps

"Often considered just an option for cheap budget pc enclosures, Raidmax is trying to break into a very recent niche in the market - the mid-range gaming case, complete with a pre-modded window, glowing front door, and led fan on the side."

 Doom 3 Console Guide @ Viper Lair

"Well Doom III has hit the shelves and some of you are even lucky enough to have already started playing it. As with any new game their will be a lot of questions and not many answers. I have my own questions, and have found a few answers to them which I'm sharing here."

That's all I have friends, catch us back here in the AM :) - Cheers
