Default 4870 Hotfix?

Is this THE hotfix that everyone says improves performance for the 4870s?

http://support.ati.com/ics/support/d...estionID=35298

What is the difference between the 8.7 drivers and this?

Also, these will install on the 4870 X2 won't they? I know they're the same gpus on one card, but better be safe..

Dunno about the X2,

though with my dual 4870's I installed the 8.7, followed by the Hotfix.

That is the correct hotfix link, at least it is the one I used.

Is there a hotfix for 8.7? I thought the hotfix was for 8.6?

Make sure you remove 8.6 first.
