There is also a 10.10b hotfix driver for Windows XP.

So is it worth upgrading from a 5870 to a 6800 series?

No. The 6800 series is a replacement for the 5700s.

The 5770 is going to hang around for a few generations. The 6870 replaces the 5830 and 5850.

The focus for smaller GPU dies (than the 4850/5770) is CPU integration, and the focus of larger dies is efficiency enhancemence and new lithography nodes. The 5770/5750 will sit nicely between those two for quite a while.

Not sure why they're calling it a HotFix. Looks like it adds features, not fixes bugs.

This is exactly what we were talking about on the nvidia post yesterday

What, that AMD releases incremental performance enhancements rather than waiting on the next full driver release? Pretty cool, huh?

They need to compensate somewhere for their lackluster drivers... it makes the user feel like they're actually doing something doesn't it.
