Tested with 4870x2. Some artifacts/glitches disappeared that were present during previous drivers + benchmarks. Seems like they worked on the crossfire profile for Crysis Warhead. Crossfire profile added for Dead Space +25 avg fps. No difference in The Witcher.

The drivers don't fail! That's a win! :D

You should never flash with drivers installed. It's always best to do the flash from DOS and not through a Windows utility.

users can configure their HyrdaVision settings with ease.

The following performance gains are noticed with this release of Catalyst™
FarCry 2 – performance gains of 3 to 10% for Single card mode and 8 to 14% in
Crossfire mode, with some specific configurations showing even greater improvements.
Performance gains were noticed on all Radeon HD4xxx and Radeon
