    For windows XP users the most recent ATI Radeon driver version is 8.12
    and can be downloaded from:

    http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=xp/radeonx-xp

    however if you download this version the screen rotate function doesn't work again...

    the fixed version of this driver can be downloaded from the following link:

    http://rapidshare.com/files/187431575/8-12_xp32_dd_72271.rar

    In the version 8.10 the hardware acceleration was very poor and in some cases we had to reduce/disable the hardware acceleration on the troubleshooting tab of display properties

    but with this recent version, it seems they have solved this issue... enjoy using this version... You will be able to use your graphics card with full functionality...

    As an answer to previous post:
    I can see touch calibration in my control panel. It is possible to calibrate touch, just like pen calibrating.

    I tried to install XP pro in a separate partition and did as you said.
    I burned an ISO with nlite and included the gigabyte and ahcix86.inf
    drivers. However, I get the blue screen of death when I try to install.
    Can you help please?

    Can anyone also comment on how much faster xp is compared to vista? Any benchmarks of clean installs would be really appreciated. I'm just wondering if the benefits of switchign to xp outweigh the cost of actually doing it.

    My main problem with Vista is that when I'm in battery maximizing mode and the performance goes way way down to the point where even scrolling has a slight delay.

    Here some Benchmarks, but i fogot to make the xp ones on a clean system...:

    3DMark 05 Vista:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    3DMark 05 XP:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The 3DMark Score is just a little bit higher on XP, but the CPU Score is much smaller :( Why?

    HD Tach Vista:
    8MB Zones
    32MB Zones
    HD Tach XP:
    8MB Zones 1
    8MB Zones 2
    8MB Zones 3
    32MB Zones 1
    32MB Zones 2
    32MB Zones 3

    The CPU usage is much smaller on XP. The random access time and the average read are just minimal better. But wtf happend to the burst speed? :confused: (see links)
    Anyone has the same results on HD Tach?

    Overview of all: Gallery

    Some other tests following soon...


    For those who have bluescreens: Download the sp40046.exe from here, start the .exe, let the files extract and cancel the installation. Then slipstream the .inf file in the "RAID7xx\x86" folder without any other drivers into xp. All other SATA drivers have not worked for me.

    Ps: I have the Tx2550eg ;)

    Hey,

    I've been away for a long time.

    Long story short, I had to reinstall xp so i decided to give the latest drivers a try and found that the performance is very improved on this version so i enabled rotation and uploaded.

    Download

    Enjoy!

    darionco.

    P.S. if this doesn't work for you try doing your own following this guide: http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/showthread.php?t=23321

    P.S.2 When I first downloaded the drivers from amd's site they didn't want to install i had to patch some other inf files to get it working... weird!

    Hi darionco,
    Nice to have you back. I just upgraded my tx2510 from the 8.08 drivers you posted a while ago to the drivers you just posted. The difference with the new drivers is the pen calibration of the screen doesn't rotate with the image on manual rotation. It is basically stuck in landscape mode.

    This didn't happen with the previous drivers.

    Any ideas on getting the screen calibration in sync with the screen orientation?
