They both use the dri (direct rendering something infastructure?). The Radeon9000 is not really that much better than the Radeon8500(LE). http://advianetwork.com/ati-radeon/ati-radeon-8500le-drivers-for-xp.html

Judging from the current status of the R7k drivers, and the note on their site about the status of the R8k driver, I would just stick with the FireGL driver from This allows not only more complicated effects, but can also provide a speed boost by utilizing the hardware more efficiently. Radeon 8500 came with support for TruForm, an early implementation of Tessellation.
It is ATI's first GPU with programmable pixel and vertex processors, called Pixel Tapestry II and compliant with Direct3D 8.1. Windows drivers This series of Radeon graphics cards is supported by AMD under Microsoft Windows operating systems including Windows XP (except x64), Windows 2000, Windows Me, and Windows 98. Thank you all. Maybe I needed to update flash and directx etc.
The 9000 succeeded the Radeon 7500 (RV200) in the mainstream market segment, with the latter being moved to the budget segment. If you can not find a driver for your operating system you can ask for it on our forum. AmigaOS The R200 series of Radeon graphics cards is supported by the Amiga operating system, Release 4 and higher. 2D graphics are fully supported by all cards in the family, with http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/archive/radeonaiw-98me higher order surfaces), called Truform, which can automatically increase the geometric complexity of 3D models.
Classic Mac OS The Radeon 9250 was the final ATI card to officially support Mac OS 9. There are opensource drivers for the 8500, and there are closed source ones from ati. The GPU is capable of dual display output (HydraVision) and is equipped with a video decoding engine (Video Immersion II) with adaptive hardware deinterlacing, temporal filtering, motion compensation, and iDCT. xorg.
At best it could have been a better performing mid-range solution than the lower-complexity Radeon 9000 (RV250, see below), but it would also have cost more to produce and would have http://www.solvusoft.com/en/update/drivers/graphics-card/ati/radeon/8500le-64mb/model-numbers/ Additionally, you can choose Operating System to see the drivers that will be compatible with your OS. A Radeon 8500 running at 300MHz clock speeds would have hardly defeated the GeForce 4 Ti4600, let alone a newer card from NVIDIA. You must register before you can post.

However, it is still highly angle-dependent and the driver sometimes forces bilinear filtering for speed. While the 9000 was not quite as fast as the 8500LE or the Nvidia GeForce 3 Ti200, the 8500LE and Ti200 were to be discontinued. Then open device manager and click on "Update driver" for the graphics card, which in my case was reading "Generic VGA blah blah blah." Then, click on "Browse my computer for

And to what? http://advianetwork.com/ati-radeon/ati-radeon-8500le-driver-letlts.html There is a new release of the ati drivers and I havn't seen many benchmarks -- time will tell.
If I use the DRI drivers, it will work fine? Compared to R100's 2x3 pixel pipeline architecture, R200's 4x2 design is more robust despite losing one texture unit per pipeline. For example, ATI was detecting the executable "Quake3.exe" and forcing the texture filtering quality to a much lower level than normally produced by the card, presumably in order to improve performance.
