Uhh, it's for the X58 motherboards so I don't whether it will work.

Of course it will. It just says the "optimizations" are for the X58 platform, so in the worst case, it won't do anything. ATI would never release a driver that only worked with one specific chipset.

I wonder if the updates for the games are anything new or just now supported for the x58

Seems that theres no improvements for the x48 chip sets. Change log seems just to fix problems during the 8.10? hotfix for the i7/x58 crew

This Driver gave nothing but a humongous SLOW-down!
Crysis couldn't run anymore worse and FC-2 hell even the intro scene was lagging!

I de-installed - and re-installed the orginal 8.11 drivers :S.
I suppose I'll have to wait for the 8.12 driver next Wednesday.

Sjeez, what a waste of time....

Anyone else having a few problems with these drivers?
Since even on my setup they act even worse.

Ghe ghe ghe, no really.

I don't think nVidia drivers are any better than ATI ones, especially not when you're running mid-range section, I've had a boat load of trouble with me 6800GS and 6800LE.
I've followed nVidia blindly, but it was never meant to be


This hotfix sucks, but I'm running Quad-Fire so there's room for error, and I wasn't experiencing any problems with FC 2 to begin with, the 8.12beta works terrific though!
I'm getting some sweet Crysis Warhead performance right off the bat.
I'm well above 60 FPS with Far Cry 2.
So everything is fine, I'll treasure this driver, in hope the final 8.12 won't sucky suck xD.

Because it was an older driver than the official 8.11 release.
