Not really a hot fix...it dosen't really fix a sudden issue that need to be fixed. It's more like adding enw feeature. But well it's better to have then now than the next month.

What's wrong with driver updates that improve performance?

Well, when they release updated drivers every month, but still feel the need to hotfix it not one, or two, or three, or even four, but FIVE times in between updates... Reeks of desperation, whether it is or not

I just means they are doing what they promised with AMD game. They say they would release fixes ASAP when users brought them to their attention, something that Nvidia never did. I stopped using a Nvidia card cause of heat and RMAs . Since the 4850 ATI has been something to watch, the new 6870 are amazing for the price. 2 6870's will cost as much as a 580 and give you way more bang for your buck I would think. Either way it's personal preference.
