Catalyst™ 7.10 introduces the following new features:

* Adaptive Anti-Aliasing support for the ATI Radeon™ X1000 Series of products
* Software CrossFire™ support for the ATI Radeon™ HD 2600 and ATI Radeon™ HD 2400 Series

Adaptive Anti-Aliasing support for the ATI Radeon™ X1000 Series of products

This release of Catalyst™ introduces Adaptive Anti-Aliasing support for the ATI Radeon™ X1000 Series of products. Adaptive Anti-Aliasing substantially improves image quality by anti-aliasing transparent textures.
Software CrossFire™ support for the ATI Radeon™ HD 2600 and ATI Radeon™ HD 2400 Series

This release of Catalyst™ introduces software CrossFire™ support for the ATI Radeon™ HD 2600 Series and ATI Radeon™ HD 2400 Series. Software CrossFire™ is only available when two graphics accelerators from the same family (i.e. 2 ATI Radeon™ HD 2600 products) are plugged into a CrossFire™ compatible motherboard with no hardware interconnect between the two graphics accelerators.

Wow -- those are some pretty big improvements with DX10 stuff.

...though I'm not going near this thing with a 10-foot-poll, not with what happened to AGP support with the last patch. :p

Just wanted to say the excellent Omega drivers have also been updated to the tweaked versions of Cat 7.9 after a long period of inactivity. Great for owners of non HD 2X00 cards

CrossFire, apparently...

I doubt these will have any effect on an x800. Also, I'd like to try the Omega Drivers (they worked great on my old 9250), but there isn't an Omega Driver version for Xp x64.
