    I don't experience any of those.. Any word on performance? It's pretty damned good as it is with 7.8 but I Don't want to install if it doesn't do anything performance wise.

    From the build code, these are essentially version 7.9.

    Bioshock performance is great with this hotfix, playing in DX 9 at 1920x1200 all game options max'ed, getting 60 fps almost all the time. Very good.

    You sure? Are you running VISTA? DX9 or DX10? I was kinda worried my cards can't handle it @1920x1200.

    I hope you have Global Lighting disabled...because enabling that fudges lighting and reflection quality, but gives a lovely boost to framerates.

    Is this just a hotfix or a full set of drivers?

    It's a full set (with lots of useless things like ATI parental control, etc.), apparently it's based on catalyst 7.9.

    For a couple seconds after I load a game there is a lack of textures - but it quickly fixes itself

    This game works for the X850 series? Thought it was SM3 only.

    I couldn't get the demo to run on my X800XL (just a bunch of missing textures and blackness)even with the hotfix so I would assume that you are correct in stating that it will only run with a SM3 card. I saw on another forum there is a guy that is re-coding the shaders to allow those of us with only SM2 cards to run the game. He had some screenshots and it looks slightly promising.
