View Full Version : New Omega Drivers released!

18th June 2004, 10:17 AM
Omega has released his latest driver set (v2.5.51) - based on the official 4.6 Cat's :cool:

NOTE: He's opened a new site, so you'll need to update any bookmarks! You can find the new site @ Omega Drivers.net (http://www.omegadrivers.net/).

Grab the latest Radeon XP drivers here (http://www.omegadrivers.net/ati/win2k_xp.php).

What's new (info courtesy of Driver Heaven (http://www.driverheaven.net/)):

"* Based on the official Catalyst 4.6 drivers.

* Updated the Omega version of RadLinker (1010), now Radlinker includes a new skin option and ads support x800 overclocking.

* Added some tweaks for OLG. Enabled OGL Triple Buffer by default.

* Added support for MANY NEW Radeon cards, FireGL cards and Mobility chipsets. ANY card should be supported now and the drivers will always install.

* Now the drivers should work a LOT better on laptops.

* Fixed FireGL card support, now it has full CP support and fully working OGL.

* Changed the installer graphics.

* Added a new option in the installer to select a faster OLG driver instead of just using the latest one, this driver runs Counter Strike like butter.
Important note: The special OGL driver will NOT work on x800 cards.

* The package keeps growing in size, the drivers will keep being distributed in compressed CAB format to save some bandwidth, it must be decompressed using one of these tools (latest

version): WinAce, WinRAR or WinZip. Then run the extracted file to start installation of the drivers.

* Opened a new site!

Hope that's all, have been working for the last 16 hours straight just to get the site done on time for the drivers release and can no longer coordinate correctly.

You can get them on my new site.

BTW, I was planning on adding another surprise to the drivers, but couldn't finish it, maybe in an update"

Additional info of note, is that he's renewing nVidia driver releases :bow:

"Some news for my nvidia fans... I'll start working on the new Omega drivers soon. They will be based on the Forceware 56.72 - that is... if Nvidia doesn't release a new WHQL build, then I'll jump directly to the next build and skip the 56.72 completely" :thumbsup:

:banghead: :banghead: :banghead: only just updated to the 4.5 version :rolleyes:

At least ATI do bother to update their drivers unlike al ot of others, so I suppose we shouldn't complain too much :sunshine:
