Using Vista 64-bit SB Drivers on Windows 7 64

Is anyone using the ATi Vista 64-bit SouthBridge drivers in Windows 7 64-bit? If so, have you noticed any improvement/degradation? Thanks in advance.

Haven't really noticed anything one way or the other, other than all my drives are running a few MB/s faster with the ATI chipset over the previous NF4 board I had.

One thing to remember is the the SB driver will be included occasionally in the Catalyst suite. Don't hold me to it but I believe the last time it updated was in the Cat 9.7; not sure about the 9.8, but do know that there was no SB driver in the 9.9.

Stormy, thanks for your response. I loaded the latest Catalyst Vista 64-bit SB drivers and Windows 7 seemed to have picked up somewhat. It's still fast and responsive as ever. This was good to know.
