Windows 7 driver for ATI Xpress 200M / 1150 integrated laptop videocard
I would like to ask: what's the best (performance-wise and "low number of bugs"-wise) 32-bit Windows 7 driver version for the ATI Xpress 200M / 1150 integrated laptop videocard?
I am currently using the driver from Windows Update. (According to Device Manger, the Windows Update provided drivers are dated 2008-12-01 and the version is 8.561.0.0.) Should I stick with it or install the last available version provided by ATI on their website (legacy driver 10.2)? Or should I get another version?
My main concern is performance, lesser amount of bugs and stability. The videocard will be used to play mostly old games that support up to Pixel Shader 1.4. I will also be watching H264 videos (with CoreAVC).
The ATI website also does not seem to offer driver versions 10.2 and below for Windows 7 as a download, only the XP / Vista versions. (The Vista versions of the drivers are available only for Xpress 1150 and Xpress 200, not 200m, for some reason). Will the XP / Vista drivers work in Windows 7?
The change logs between the driver versions can be viewed here: filehippo.com/download_ati_catalyst_xp/changelog/7067/.

You can use the Vista drivers, but not the XP drivers. If you aren't experiencing any problems, leave it be.

Benchmark a game, install the 10.2 driver, then benchmark it again. If it's better keep it, if not do a rollback. If it's the same, rollback.
