	ATI's drivers support 8500 or better, 'Built by ATI' boards only.  
The XiG drivers support all radeons (including the mobility variants)
except the r300 based boards (Radeon 9700+)...

	One question for anyone who tries the new ATI drivers -
what's the performance like in ut?  We (XiG) tested it today, and although
the performace was much improved from their previous drivers in other
areas, ut2003 performance didn't seem as good as I thought it would be...  

	Anybody else tried them on ut2003 yet?
