Hi everyone i'm new to the community :D i've been ready the forum for a while and i was just too damn lazy to register to respond/post a question. and the only reason i'm doing so now is because it's 4 in the morning and i need something to do other than go to bed :/ and i was just wondering about the different drivers available not made by ATI. Such as what ones are there? what ones are better? and other such things. I currently have a R9700 pro, and was just wondering if i could get just a bit better performance by using one of these other drivers :D
There are OMEGA drivers (adapted ATI drivers) and then the Rage3Dtweak (added to ATI Catalyst drivers). There are/were DNA drivers but this ( is supposedly the LAST version. The makers have directed users to use the Omegas now from what I've seen at DH and other places.

The best IMO are the OMEGAs they are about the look and quality/stability in games. They will likely NOT increase your benchmarks scores but will likely make thing look and work better in games, and also give you options not provided by the basic ATI drivers. The only way to tell what is best for you is to try them.
