I'm hoping for one for it as well. When playing games it crashes every time basically when you start up the game. Getting very frustrating.

Are you using the 5800 series? I have heard there is a problem with the 5700 series as well - BUT this hotfix does not solve it for that model - you will need to rollback the drivers to the 9.12's to solve the issue.

Default It doesn't work

Running 10.2 drivers on an XFX XXX 5870. Grey screens regularly in games. L4D2 is unplayable.
