I'm pretty sure Avio video converter was already released.

The performance gains in crysis and Warhead are nice.

Excellent! Works with HD 3850... it felt good for the past 3 driver updates that I was included instead of being with the unsupported older card

DL'ing now... Thanks Fat.Clown!

So a 20% increase in Crysis on my hd 3450 increases me from 10 fps to 12 fps. YES!

funny, Crysis/Crysis Warhead, Left 4 Dead, probably Fear 2 demo, GTA4, and maybe other games dont use CF or something. I got my card early when it came out and all i notice is no PCI-E 2.0 support and not all the 1GB of VRAM is being used. I got myself screwed over big time . Downloading now.
