    AMD released v1.3.2.0053 drivers for its dual core processors for XP and
    Windows Server, both x86 and x64.

    This is what AMD says about them
    "Allows the system to automatically adjust the CPU speed, voltage and power
    combination that match the instantaneous user performance need. Download this
    Setup Installation program (EXE) to automatically update all the files
    necessary for installation. This package is recommended for users whom desire
    a graphical user interface for installation. This .EXE driver is a user
    friendly localized software installation of the driver designed for
    end-users. This driver supports AMD Athlonâ„¢ 64 X2 Dual Core processors on
    Windows XP SP2, Windows 2003 SP2 x86 and x64 Editions."
    Download link is:

  3. (and yeah, I know, I can't seem to stay away! after a few hours, I start to
    have shaking fingers, sweaty palms, total withdrawal pains. Have to swing
    by...)

    Yep, the "NG stay-away syndrome".
    Someone's gotta write about that stuff also.

  5. I think I already have a previous version of this driver:

    version: 1.3.2.0016

    Why would I go through the trouble of installing:

    version: 1.3.2.0053

    Are there any serious bug fixes or performance improvements ?

    They site doesn't say...

  6. If you have no issues - and I didn't hear of any - then you probably don't
    'need' it. On the other hand - if they didn't find something to improve in
    there, they probably wouldn't care to spend time just 'shining' it up? Might
    not be actual bugs, perhaps 'code-tuning', which is always nice.

    I might be tempted to give it a kind of subjective test-run, but I'm in no
    hurry. It can wait for now.

    Just sit back, relax, put your traytables in the upright position and wait
    for the next patch of this driver.

  8. Something like that, I guess.

    Then again - these updates doesn't happen every year, it seems. I may not
    have that much patience. I am harbouring a healthy bit of curiosity too.

  9. Also interesting, in the same directory, is the AMD Power
    Monitor. It graphically shows, in real-time, the frenetic
    activity taking place in our CPUs:

    This appears to be moving cool 'n quiet from an application to a driver.
    Cool 'n Quiet always had a graphics display available. This seems to be
    built into Vista at the driver level as can be seen using the Reliability
    and Performance Monitor.
