    Has anyone tried these against the 10.2's?

    I've not updated since the 10.1's and will happily skip the 10.2's if these are stable and offer decent performance (with crossfire).

    But are these 10.3's or 10.2 hotfix (which is what usually appears a couple of days after drivers are launched from Ati)

    They are the 10.3 betas that were used in the previews, so should have bezel management etc.

    Looks like it has support.

    Code:
    "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series" = ati2mtag_Manhattan, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68C0
    "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series " = ati2mtag_Manhattan, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68C1
    "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series  " = ati2mtag_Manhattan, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68E0
    "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series   " = ati2mtag_Manhattan, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68E1
    "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5800 Series" = ati2mtag_Manhattan, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68A0
    "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5800 Series " = ati2mtag_Manhattan, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68A1
    "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5800 Series  " = ati2mtag_Manhattan, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68B0

    If you have used the 8.703 beta drivers before these you'll have to uninstall the CCC and then install the ones from these drivers, since the one from these newer drivers have an older date so won't get replaced.

    I'm not 100% sure, perhaps the press had another app for the bezel stuff, these are the press drivers though.

    These drivers also seem to have the 2D fixes that Tomshardware were testing.

    From the slides here is how you access the bezel management, you don't have this option?
