New AMD/ATI Drivers

AMD Support & Drivers now offers new version 12.6 Catalyst reference drivers for AMD/ATI graphics cards as well as beta version 12.7 drivers. Here's word: "AMD Catalyst 12.6 represents a significant milestone in AMDís driver development and planning. The list of resolved issues at the end of this email is certainly representative of our continued investment in quality, but itís symbolic of a deeper systemic change. The truth is that our new driver cadenceóreleasing drivers as neededógives us tremendous flexibility to provide releases that are worth upgrading to. By this I mean that youíll begin to see meatier updates, with a single driver containing a number of fixes and enhancements that could have been deployed over several releases with our old schedule. "

Meh, they gotta make money, just like everyone else. What I don't get is why the beta drivers are 20mb more than the normal ones? And what the hell is in 150mb? I mean, c'mon, just give me the changed stuff, not the whole damn thing again and again! Just because I have broadband doesn't mean I still want to wait the 10mins and waste the 100+mb of disk space on a damn video driver! Yeah, it's petty, but valid...

So, let's get some opinions in here of the 'real world' improvements. I'm curious if anyone sees any kind of speed enhancements with older cards, like my HD5770...
