Sweet. Doesn't mention which configurations specifically, so I suppose that means all possible configurations? Quick, someone with two 5970s try it out, lol.

I have a question about ATI drivers, I just got a 5870 ,the first ATI card since the 8mb rage pro so I'm clueless.
Whats the hotfix for? I currently have the 911 catalyst suite so do I uninstall the 911's and install the 912's or apply the hotfix? or install the 912's and the hotfix? It seems more complicated then it should be.

Not going to bother until I can get the Win7 X64 hotfix. That link eventually ends me at a "File not found" page on AMD's site. That and people are reporting more issues with COD:MW2 than before.

IMO, the Hotfix is a driver in and of itself. Basically a 10.1 beta.
