    Installed these drivers for my 5850 a few days ago and I've had no problems. Bad Company 2 now loads easily twice as fast as it used to.

    Re: News - AMD fixes Battlefield: Bad Company 2 load times for Radeon GPUs

    When we're talking about 'long' load times. Exactly how long should we be look at on a decent system with 4GB Ram, max settings, and standard 7200rpm 3.5" mechanical drive? Game load times can be quite long anyway (ie. Crysis), but I'm unsure if I'm experiencing this problem without testing the load time before and after installing this driver...

    Well I was getting in games around 30-45 seconds before my mate who is running an i5 750, 4GB RAM, 4850 1GB and an F3 pre-game patch. He's just tried to download this hotfix and apparently its limited his resolution to 1400*1050 so at this moment in time its done him no favours.

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Well I think I can wait a week for the official driver, since I only installed Car 10.3 48 hours ago!

    I had that resolution problem just after I installed the hotfix but a simple restart fixed that for me.

    Finally. I was wondering why I was always one of the last to get in to a new map, all this time it's been my 5850.
