Interesting, AMD picked up an interesting policy... http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/Pages/radeon_win7-64.aspx This page now lists WHQL and BETA driver. What this means is that they'll release BETA versions more often and will be of the same quality as WHQL, just without it. The actual WHQL that will be released less often will be actually WHQL signed. I kinda understand the AMD now, the whole WHQL signing process was often holding them back or caused driver release to be released way later after the game was released. Now they can release the drivers on the game release date exactly or just 1 day later. I don't think the quality of drivers will change much. I mean, if anything, they'll get even better because they won't be constrained by the quite lenghty WHQL signing process.
