Default Re: Valve and AMD team up for driver updates

I'll be the first to admin I have not owned a ATI product in a while (however I've been thinking of trying their latest offereings)

From what I've read on other forums, a reboot in not needed? I've always had to reboot my system after installing new drivers. Is this a ATI Cat. feature?

I also agree that not great for the enthusiast but for the casual user this should benefit them.

Indeed most times I never have to reboot. The install process gives you a blank screen (basically removes the device and puts the new drivers in) and a few seconds later you are up and running with new drivers.

I tried the steam install, it basically downloads it via steam then just runs it like normal.
