    Are there any performance increases? Btw why does everyone hate ccc? Since the 5.7 driver it's much faster to load.

    Fraid not, there is no Control Panel anymore, 5.7 was the last set with the old Control Panel, its CCC only from this set on, hence why im sticking with the 5.7's. ;)

    No 60Hz bug fix? F**K!!

    Sick and tired of exiting games or booting the machine and the desktop flicking to 60Hz refresh rate! Had this with CAT 5.6 and 5.7 so guess it's not fixed in 5.8 then! Using the same monitor inf file when I had my GF3 and never had a problem with refresh rates, so what's the problem ATI?

    Why is everyone so paranoid about there not being CP? Just install the drivers w/o catalyst and install ATT.
