Default Large improvements in xfire with CAP 10.8a

Saw this over at HardOCP (CAP 10.8a - ATI CrossFireX Application Profile 10.8a Performance | [H]ard|OCP). Those are some large performance boosts in AvP and BC2.

They probably can but I always take the extra precautions just to completely eliminate any driver conflicts.

1. Uninstall drivers
2. Reboot in safe-mode and clean with driver sweeper or driver cleaner
3. Restart and install new drivers

The profiles are separate from the drivers. They're meant to be installed at any time. If I remember correctly, the reason ATI decided to separate the profiles from the drivers in the first place was so they weren't locked into a monthly release cycle with the profiles.

Read the release notes. They should specify all the performance differences.

This is no longer a concern as I have switched back to Nvidia. Thanks for all support regarding my 5970s.
