AMD/ATi might be looking to improve its increasingly awful driver support.
It seems they have started a beta program and would like people to sign up.
The link was sent to me by a friend who has become more and more unhappy with their ATi 4870 X2. With a slew of issues surrounding the 8-12 drivers he has been checking the AMD site for news of a fix.
If you are in the broke Cat driver boat and want to help AMD bail the rapidly rising water you might just want to head over and sign up.
