    There was a demo released to a subset of Fileplanet subscribers yesterday, which seems to be the reason for this driver release.

    It's fully playable. There are three more Fileplanet key blocks being release this month before the public beta, if you're dying to play it before the masses.

    So, this driver finally unbound the shader clock domain ratio free from the base GPU clock?
    Cool!

    The ratio being computed by RivaTuner is (pedantically I guess) wrong, but the end result is correct. It should be base/scheduler, not base/hot, but since the hot clock is always 2 x scheduler it works out OK. Good to see the ratio can be programmed at any rate, will help experimentation no end.
