OK guys, a fix for the slowdown in blender on ATI cards was posted by ron17 at the blender3d forums, basically, just take the atiogxx.dll file from the catylyst 3.7 drivers and plop it in your blender directory.
could anyone host JUST the dll? So that people don’t have to download the 20 meg package and dig the DLL out of the libraries? I can send it to anyone that can host it. (Elysiun maybe?)
