ATI Beta DOOM 3 Drivers

ATI has released a DOOM 3 CATALYST 4.9 BETA driver "to users interested in increasing performance of Doom 3." There are several warnings accompanying the beta drivers suggesting that they not be used in mission critical environments, and that their use is only recommended for users familiar with installing and uninstalling drivers. Thanks Tim V. There's a description of these drivers on Team Radeon.

On first glance, the new drivers appear to have made the game slightly smoother for me. I'd guess I'm getting a few fps more on average now, and I'd say it's more that my lows aren't as low, as opposed to the highs being higher. I could very well be crazy though (I blame it on Doom).

For what it's worth, I got 29.2 fps on timedemo 1 with the beta driver (I didn't run the bench with the old driver... sorry). I'm running in 1280x1024 high quality.
