Default Ati Driver 10.3 Preview

I'am not sure if i can post a link from another site, anyway it's rage3D. there's a link to download the 10.3 Preview drivers (the beta)

I tested DIRT2

Got from 46FPS (OC 875/1150) to 56fps (1920x1080, 8xMSAA, 16xAF) on a 5850 OCS

There's a huge thread on Guru3D about these drivers and they seem to be posting significant performance improvements both in responsiveness and performance. It's also an update for the Mobility series, which I am definitely looking forward to.

10.3 is an awesome driver. I'd recommend it.

That makes the 5xxx cards even more attractive if people are getting huge gains like that from a driver update. Hopefully the gains will be on the whole line up.

arg.... this is making my decision so much harder! Anybody running dual 5850's with this update? Im not sure if I want to get a second 5850 or put the one i already have underwater. It'll cost me about 400 either way...
