    Wooooo no joke just installed these and a 40% increase in Metro 2033 and Just Cause 2 , installed on top of 10.3 preview drivers. Dont know if the previous drivers were a bad install but im shocked at the speed difference and happy, hope you guys and girls get the same surprise thanks Ati, its about time.

    Just tried BFBC2, spoke a bit too soon works fine apart from the grey lines now and again but still loads faster and smoother than the last ones.

    How?? They're Direct3d games...

    EDIT: nm, just realised it's a complete install of the drivers, not just the opengl part - are these newer than the 10.3a drivers?

    Yes, these are dated 2 days ago (the 23rd), as posted above, the 10.3a's are dated the 14th. :)

    That does not mean that the driver only come with this new OGL.
    Maybe it have optimizations for those games.

    Edit: I saw the edit later :p

    I lost a 2 resolutions with these drivers 1680x1050 and 1440x900, but Metro 2033 is running better for sure, I run DX10 Very High 1280x800 and it runs great that's well below my native but it looks great.

    Cool story bros XD
    I'm on 10.3a preview - 7 x64, I wonder if I should do a clean install(uninstall with CIM + ccleaner) or install over the top, they can't differ much from 10.3a/WHQL, can they?
    Will my settings be saved if I install over the last ones?
    Sry for this offtopic but bc2 issues are drivin' me round the bend.

    I just installed over the top of the old ones (10.3 Preview) and got this massive speedup. Would be nice to see what a clean install dose. Sorry i forgot all my resolutions went bad after install, also did not allow changes in CAT settings but just changed it in windows desktop rez option, then CAT settings worked fine. Still after more game testing these are the fastest and smoothest by far.

    Anyone found any OpenGL 4.0 demos or benchmarks so we can test these drivers?
