    Yes, that's a testament to how "good" 10.1 drivers were. People are in a rush to get rid of them.

    Is there any hope that an upcoming driver releases will support Hybrid Crossfire for the HD5000 series on a 785G and above chipsets?

    Also, how about enabling some kind of "switchable graphics" technology or option for desktops (or laptops) with both ATI video card and ATI chipset (with on-board graphics of course, say 785G and higher)...

    I initially thought that that is what hybrid crossfire really was all about but I understood it way too off.

    Right I mainly bought this card for gaming and I can officially say it's a lot smoother in CoD4 so much better.

    No lagging or stuttering whatsoever and find just for that reason much better than 10.1

    Yes it did take me longer than normal to download.

    Guys get it, much better.

    Because ATI always release around 1900 GMT...

    These drivers are the first since 9.10 that don't cause the headlights and trackside lights in NFS Shift to flicker when using crossfire so I'm well chuffed!

    If they fixed other games where you get a little flickering in CrossFire I will be amazed. The fact they actually fixed that problem in NFS gives me much hope! :)

    hmm, Shift is the only game I have that I've seen the flicker. Just don't know why it started as with 9.10 it was perfect. I'd have stuck with them til now but as you know Dirt 2 doesn't work with lower than 9.11..

    The flickering has gotten better especially with the 5 series. It only happens in certain games and shadows are usually the culprit. I usually use Vsync which fixes those issues anyways.

    Ah right. I'm still a luddite with 4870's and I've not noticed it other than in Shift,
