The Linux drivers do. So I hope, that the Windows drivers support Mobile GPUs also. That would be exactly, what they call "unify drivers".

Average benchmarks (comparable to 197.XX). Other than that everything seems to work fine (PowerMizer, Brightness etc.)

EDIT: Crap, the 3D settings really don't save in Control Panel...

If you change anything and close the Control Panel it reverts to default settings.

if your 3D settings don't stick (i.e. they go back to defaults) in the control panel, click the 'Restore' button under Manage 3D settings, then Apply. Then select the settings you want and they should not reset to defaults now.
