    Ooooooooh


    that is one impressive update list

    CrossFire X profiles per application will now be in a separate XML file that it will be possible to update independently of the driver itself
    Read as: users can now fix flickering/crossfire issues by editing a file manually, and altering the crossfire mode used.

    If laptop manufacturers allow it, possibility of installing the Catalysts on a laptop in Vista and 7
    Read as: we got sick of people being forced to use laptop specific drivers, cause laptop manufs are douches

    That's why I use Driverheaven's MobilityModder tool. I haven't tried it out with Win 7 but never had issues with Vista x32/x64.

    Even though they were posted in the 5850 area of the MSI site, I'm thinking these are 56xx drivers. You can get the same drivers at AMD right now dated 1/14/2010.

    I'm using them on my 5870 under Win 7 64-bit. I only install display driver, HDMI/DP driver, and AVAIO though.

    I got to admit i didn't check your specs :banghead: , i didn't know you have an 3870x2...:eek:

    But then again i don't know how much power your card can deliver but it must have a good punch... & probably owns the 5750?

    We got an similar system but i do have an 5750 ...;)

    You got any games that we could compare?
    HL-2 , Far Cry2 , Doom 3, Grid , etc...?

    3870x2 is about the same as a 4850 not a 4870. A 5770 would be a HUGE improvement over a 3870x2.

    No. The x1000's use Legacy (older) drivers. Just go to AMD's website for those.:)
