    The Catalyst 10.6 drivers should be posted on AMD.com very soon, if they're not available already, should you want to check them out for yourselves.

    You can dl from either sites, though all the packages are same & NOT modified!
    G3D Mirrors:


    Alternatively here's the AMD driver site, though it's customized now. You have to provide information about you GPU such as the Radeon Family e.g 4000, 5000. OS requirement, & actual GPU chipset e.g 4870, 5870.


    Here is the TechPowerUP mirror, in case the first two aint doing the job!


    They also have the XP x64 Catalyst!

    Guys use this thread for discussing on this new set of drivers, possible glitches, or new problems & stuff. I post a hfs link for SMILE users, if I get the time. All 3000, 4000, 5000 series are supported!
