For our AMD/ATI loving members out there; AMD's graphics division has announced its April driver package for Radeon-based graphics cards.

Catalyst 7.4 does not include any bugfixes, but addresses performance enhancements and new features in Windows Vista. According to the company, the new driver will increase OpenGL performance under Vista for all X1000-series graphics cards. Users should see typical improvements of about 15% in game titles such as Doom 3, Quake 4 and Prey with enthusiast cards and configurations approaching 30%, AMD said.

The driver also comes with the Avivo Video Converter for Windows Vista, which enables users to convert videos from one format. Supported output formats include MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4/DivX, WMA and H.264/AVC.

The drivers can be downloaded from AMD's website

I'm not sure exactly what info was leaked etc, but people are saying the files can still be downloaded via a well known hosting site :(

Possibly why there's been so many cheating kids on cs:s this week? altho the 3day passes were bad enough at attracting them :(

Yea seriously, somebody needs to make it so you DONT need Steam to run those games. Its so annoying to have to update everytime i log on. I dont have that kinda bandwidth to be patching every other day.

Erm by Cafe I don`t think they mean Cyber. ;)

From what I hear, the poster isn`t one of the ones who did it, but seems to be the one mouthing about it, not to every1s liking. But meh..

I know this sucks, but I have to be brutal that if indeed the info is stored as suggested, Valve need a spanking. Apparantly they were told about it too.

Dunno anything else.

If u`r concerned, speak to u`r cc supplier, get u`r card re-issued (new number) then take a look over the last month or 2`s statements for anything irregular. If u see something, talk to u`r cc company - they will understand, they have departments dedicated to this sorta thing. And as this is now regular news, they`ll know about the matter too. Prob be on cnn l8r in the week or summit, with added buzzwords.

18-04-2007, 15:42:12

Chit I have a lot of stuff on steam bought via CC :\

20-04-2007, 04:47:52

Extremely worrying...

...but then again, its still unlikely its "our" cc details taken, when you think about how many users there are...(or atleast its nice to think its unlikely...)
