    I just got word that ATI CATALYST 10.9 video card drivers will be released in a few hours! Those of you that play The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena will be happy to hear that you will get a performance boost and that the mesh corruption is no longer visible when SSAO in-game setting is set to high. ATI also improved performance numbers in the STALKER: Call of Pripyat benchmark, so be sure to keep an eye out for these drivers when the go public here in a bit. The driver also updates the application profiles for Aliens Vs. Predator, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, F1 2010 and Kane & Lynch 2.

    I think you got one of the best Avatars :D
    Reason for the hotfixes is the upcoming HD 6800 series cards, ATI is trying to get it right I assume.

    Cat 10.9a is the same as Cat 10.9 with some fixes for the older dual gpu cards. It also fixed the under/over scan and a few other fixes.

    Worth it for me. Better image and accelerated my onboard video card. Surprising but under heavy action in Battlefield 2 it was little lagging ..especially when a jet pass by and blow my head with bombs lol Now no more problems
