    So far it seems, as soon as the next month approaches, the driver hungry goonies start hyping it up and soon enough they get released :) If it works I say keep the cycle going...

    First of all, the Hotfix Drivers are meant to be installed by themselves, not ontop of another driver, basically means you install the hotfix driver and the individual CCC. Read the notes on what they fix- they are primarily for AGP cards.

    I figured this out on the Cat 8.1- I installed the Hotfix ontop of the Regular 8.1 and i was having some messed up performance Problems, i removed it all and installed the 8.1 Hotfix with the CCC for 8.1s and no problems- games run smooth.

    i have read somewhere that this hotfix is only for HD2xxx and it fixes some issues with 3d stuff. i have 2600xt ddr4, and with every new driver it gets so much better.
    when the crysis came out it didnt worked at all with 7.10 drivers, but now its flying.

    I'm not sure about these, but as I'm at work I can't test them but apparently they're the 8.4 beta set.

    8.4 beta

    The do appear to be, that 8.3 Hotfix, that is apparently meant to be an 8.4 beta is a much smaller file than these. I'll give these a try when I get home from work later today.

    Well, they didn't seem to do me any favours. My 3DMark06 score dropped dramatically from 5296 to 5082. :(

    Plus my frame rates in CoD 4 are choppier than they were 8.3 - crapass!

    >.<

    i think we need to say whether or not we are useing XP or vista just to make sure we are talking about the same driver set..

    the XP ones dont work for me.. 2005 instantly crashed and i am back to the splotchy colour blocks the same as with the 8.3s in crossfire crysis.. i never tried anything else just when back to the 8.2s.. everything after the 8.2s seem downhill for me..
