To me this is one of the bigger ones from that press release,

Quote:
Key features of ATI Catalyst graphics drivers, version 10.3, scheduled for release in March, 2010:
  • Monthly updates for the mobile crowd: Starting in March, AMD plans to issue stability, performance and feature enhancements in monthly ATI Catalyst™ driver updates for Windows® 7 and Windows Vista™-based notebooks that feature ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 2000, HD 3000, HD 4000 and HD 5000 series premium graphics processors. AMD is working closely with most major notebook manufacturers to ensure broad support for this initiative.
Sounds like they have finally worked out that licensing agreement that they have had for years (Nvidia is/was in the same boat) regarding drivers for the mobility video cards. Be nice that those that have them will finally be able to get them directly from ATI instead of having to wait on the notebook manufacturer's to get them out.

Unfortunately for Sony, Toshiba and Panasonic laptop users, all three companies have opted out, meaning they won't get the latest features each month like everyone else.

I wonder if you'll be able to use the HP ATI drivers on those machines anyways, or if there will too much of a difference.
