    As a rule it’s only gamer that are interested in new graphics card drivers, but the latest Catalyst 11.4 drivers released by AMD should be of interest to Firefox 4 user running Windows 7 this time around.

    Why Firefox 4 users? Well, take a look at this entry from the release notes:

    The GPU no longer shows high GPU usage after running Firefox 4 with hardware acceleration enabled.

    So, if you run Firefox 4 on Windows 7 and have hardware acceleration enabled, you need these drivers.

    Go get em!

    Hi Highwayman,

    I don't believe it's a setting, it's simply enabled by default when you have hardware accelleration enabled properly.
