    From what I've read cat 9.6 is suppose to improve on video memory fragmentation. I have no idea what that is but the gist of it is that once improved frame rates should also improve. Anyone know what video memory fragmentation is? In any case, new cat drivers are said to be released on June 10, 2009.

    Anyone noticed any improvements from 9.5 I'm actually disappointed with 9.5s - .6 better sort out the micro-stuttering in FC2.

    What do you mean no go? It installed just fine for me :ohwell: I'm gonna go try Crysis real quick I guess.. It's the only game I can't get playable fps on.

    Crysis plays better in DX10 mode, nice..

    Would it not be the same as a HDD but with memory. So the drivers just place the info in order so it can be read faster.
