I just installed the Hotfix driver for the 4850...
I notice it says has some performance and stability improvements... it hasn't been unstable for me today, as I've been playing a bit of Oblivion with it, but it did boost my 3DMark06 score ever so slightly.
Went from 12158 3DMarks to 12214.
The overall 3DMark improvement over the HD3870 OC I had in previously isn't that great.
I had 11666 with the HD3870 OC...
Was expecting something a little more dramatic, but eh, it's a start!
When the 4870 comes out, I will be testing that in this rig too.
(CPU is a Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 clocked @ 3.6ghz, so I know that my CPU isn't the bottleneck.)
