I am generally good at updating my drivers, but this one cause a lot of instability in windows. I got IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error e_e along with one about a driver issue. Uninstalled and reinstalled 9.2, problem fix. WTF?

not sure here... but make sure you are not sharing irqs... or make sure it isnt sharing with hd or usb... that killed it for me.  Another possibility, there is reminants of the old driver still around... you didnt state which windows... but in vista and win7. you can go into device manager and uninstall the driver from there and there is a checkbox to delete the driver files...use that and reboot.  then try again.

i noticed a big improvement on win 7 7057 x64.  Opengl works finally... and i was playing mirror's edge and it was so fast as almost nausiating... and i dont get motion sickness

to the others not seeing improvments... running vista sp1?  there was not much improvement there.

Am I the only one who never sees the increses in performance on games when the new updates are released?

With Catalyst 9.2 I not only didn't notice any improvement, things got notably worse.  Games are actually a bit slower and if I want to watch Media Center recorded TV shows I now have to boot up my XBox 360 because watching TV crashes the video driver.

Having upgraded drivers and driver unification is great, but how long are we going to be waiting for a 64-Bit AVIVO package release?  It used to be available (Catalyst 8.11 was the last release) but the last driver releases have either said "Available Soon" or have linked to the 32-Bit download AFTER making you fill out a stupid survey.  Come on ATI Windows 7 is going to be mostly 64-Bit installs so you might want to get this figured out!
