    Re: News - ATI unleashes Catalyst 9.1 drivers; adds Open GL 3.0 support

    Gaaah, AMD's download experience sucks. With 8.12 I had to search around and click through loads of links to get the Avivo package for 32-bit XP; with 9.1 it's just impossible! The 'Complete Avivo Package' link just takes you to a stupid survey. What kind of fuddle-headed web designer puts a site live without even testing the internal links?

    I think this will be seen as a bit of a disappointing release from ATI, people were expecting some major performance boosts, but i guess not.

    Why were we expecting major performance increases? :\

    Because it's the first month of the 2009th year?

    I only know of one person expecting major performance increases, but they always came across as a bit of a fanboy so I didn't really take them very seriously.

    Whenever I fill in their survey after downloading I always select "Stability/Bug Fixes" instead of "Performance"

    ... recovering from a particularly enjoyable Christmas and New Year
    That's funny. Could argue the whole company's still recovering from 2007's...
