    This really works! I am now using SmoothVision 2.1 and gained about 300 points on 3Dmark03 just moments ago... You basically need a 9700/9500 card running the Cat3.2 drivers, and then go here:

    EDIT: (choose the "More achievement by the R350 driver path" link on the upper right corner)

    for a very detailed tutorial on how to do the mod. You basically need to unzip the new system file, delete one from the inf dir in your ATI directory tree, then "update" the driver through the device manager, choosing the inf file directly, then let windows do the rest, reboot, and that's it. I was shocked that it actually worked. Whoop!:D :D :D

    the newest Riva tuner will patch the .inf file to force R9800 drivers too - that's the method I used :thumb:

    Hmmmm... well, it was one of those "translated" site links. I think it was in German, originally. RDR said that he got it working with RivaTuner. Maybe try that method. Cheers!

    go to www.Rage3d.com - the d/l section has a link to the latest RivaTuner w/ the patch scripts & there's a 9800soft mod thread in the forums here:
    http://www.rage3d.com/board/showthre...eadid=33672719

    there's a few different methods to force the 9800 drivers - but this should be enough to get you going:D
