    If only intel would also release new video drivers that actually improved gaming. Nice to see that AMD's drivers are actually getting better with time.

    been using the 11.7b hotfix for a couple of weeks now, have been quite stable...not sure i like the interface changes

    only bug i had with my 6870 was they defaulted to the wrong Gpu/memory/2d speeds(clicking on default fixed it)

    Nvidia doesn't have half the problems that AMD was having with their cards in gaming. And what exactly were the "ION Driver v270.61 WHQL" then for that matter?

    Because only cool kids use 64 bit machines…
  10. If you like KMPlayer then you will like PotPlayer even more which is heads and shoulders above the rest of the media players.
