Strange artifacts on Rqadeon 9800 Pro

    I own a Sapphire Radeon 9800 Pro since 3 weeks and the card is very fast.

    I am running Windows XP, Catalyst 4.3 drivers.

    I have the problem that I often get strage artifacts when I turn on
    antialiasing. These artifacts show up as a vertical line in the left most
    column of the display and in the first row of the display.

    I have seen this problems also in non - antialiased apps, like e.g. 3DMark

    This seems to me like a driver problem.

    Any ideas?

    It does not seem to be resolution bound.
    I ran 3DMark 03 in 1024x768 resolution today and there everything is ok.
    The madonion XL-8R8 demo for example exposed artifacts in
    640x480 with enabled antialiasing, without anti aliasign everything is

    It seems to me that DirectX 9 apps are doing good and elder ones don't.

    Catalyst 4.4 seems to have cured the problem in some apps.
