    Nice. My cable internet provider claims they could give every one of their customers 100mb up&down if they wanted to. Damn why don't they... I hated waiting those 20 sec for the Catalyst drivers to download.

    not a lot of improvements for vista. overall this [i think] are just bugfixes than anything else.

    wow they need to work on their page breaks in their release notes pdf, at first glance it seemed like the only supported cards were the 3XXX series, the X1300, X1050, X850 and X800 series.

    kinda made me go :wtf:

    They seem to be working ok for me. No performance difference from the 8.3s though.

    Yes? Optimized drivers aren't very optimized anyways.

    Good news for crossfire owners! In XP you can have both cards already installed (bridges installed too) and these drivers work! All the problems of 8.3's are gone!:D Testing now!
    Paulieg says thanks.
