    Any one who can read and use a mouse and keyboard can rename a file. It's simply not a good idea to download from a user upload site with out professional verification / authentication. Such things as magical beta drivers often give users hope, and they'll downplay the risks of downloading software that they have no idea where it came from just for the chance to fix their issues. Unfortunately that's not the smart thing to do.

    You should removes the link until you've got it verified and uploaded to a credible site.

    the date, that is indeed strange because the hotfix i download is actually 080621 which is the same as the one you showes and the 8.7 beta i downloaded from Guru3d have a date of 080625.

    I can't recommend anybody using these drivers. There was no performance gain, and for some reason it doesn't want to uninstall Microsoft Visual C++ when it should, leading into not being able to install new drivers. So if you are having problems, you need to manually uninstall Visuall C++.:banana:

    Hotfix is older 3 days then this driver but beta from Guru is newer but press driver is the best for Crossfire now.In beta 8.7 from guru in Crossfire mode you can`t use overdrive.

    0806211352-8.501.1-080621a-065813E-ATI

    DriverVer=06/21/2008, 8.501.1.0000

    copy straight out from the inf in HD4850 hotfix. which is dated the same as yours.
    and you said this is a 8.7 beta, the catalyst version still say it is 8.6.

    Another thing, if this really is the real thing, then the guy already broken the NDA he signed, not to mention the link is from a free file hosting site.

    And if you said the hotfix is 3 days older, how come 1 of them is 080612 and the other is 080621? Thats a 9 days different.
