But if you have a radeon 9700 "NOT PRO"
Convert it to a FireGL with only 3 files
You say.. ohh it is ust a fake.
I was testing quake 3 timedemo
Radeon 9700|| 178Fps
And 3dsmax is running perfect

WTH? I knew you could mod a radeon 9500 to a 9700. But 9700 to a firegl?? How?? Do you have any temp readings, is it stable?? MORE INFO MORE INFO!!!!

the only thing you should do. is
1 download firegl drivers.
2. unistall radeon drivers
3. Use a program that force radeon to use firegl drivers
4. Install firegl drivers
5. restart windows
6. When you start windows a popup message is there
and say.. We can find 3d studio max on your computer. Allow firegl?
When you start 3dsmax you find this

I may be a bit ignorante, but what does FireGL improve in 3DMax: viewport rendering or rendering :???: Is it much better than the ATI Radeon 9700 :???:

okey the viewport is 3x faster.. And i mean it.. I was testing to do over many sphere about 500 with 200 segments. With radeon9700 that was slow.. Now with firegl i can rotate and move the scene. with no problem.
all bolls has 200 segments
But ont thing.. You cant play 2d games on it.. like Roller Coaster 2 =(
