Re: 3dmark05 pro is nice.
Getting back to ATI's huge performance in 05, the "hotfix" driver adds over 800 points (!!!!!) over the last official driver for XT PE cards. That is an INSANE increase, even if ati's drivers suck so much they can just fix one of their "memory leaks" and get 25% more performance. Unfortunately nvidia doesnt have such bugs
The highest XT PE score I've seen was 6886 and that guy apparently blew the fuses from his PSU and so cannot replicate the score until he gets a new PSU
