Does this driver work for the eyefinity edition cards? I searched the ati website and it still lists 10.3 as the latest one for that.

The optimizations for Bad Company 2 from the 10.4a hotfix are there. That's about the only game that really needs anything right now.

Does this also include the fix for the BC2 loading issue addressed in the 10.4a preview driver?

^^ Mind reader up there.

H.264 level 5.1 support is great, though it's way overdue.

These drivers are older than the 10.4a preview driver and don't have the BC2 fix for the 4000 series.

I guess I'll have to stay with 10.4a preview driver for now.

Solid video playback release. Is the AVIVO converter still in the same state as when AT reviewed it?

so is this basically AMD getting something out the door to keep the numbering scheme right and then release the real driver update in mid may?

They work good for now, I liked the integrated AVIVO function and the GPU accelerated video tab for portable devices, a pity that my Zune HD doesn't use the Windows Explorer to drag and drop files and instead it only works with the crappy Zune Software which is unintituive.
