Flickering with 12.6 and 12.7 -

Lately I've been noticing some flickering during games like Fear 3 and Just Cause 2 that were never there before. Looks like trying to watch a scrambled cable channel. Seems like it started after upgrading from 12.3 to 12.6 or 12.7. This is with eyefinity multi-monitor setup with two dvi's and an active display port mini adapter to dvi on a triple xfire 6970 rig. Disabling crossfire mode has no effect as it still persists.
So I tried testing each video port one by one to see if I could pin it down to a bad dvi port or maybe displayport adapter. Each port tested out cleanly without flicker individually. However with all three monitors attached in mirror mode (eyefinity turned off) the displayport monitor flickered and would spread to other monitors only if eyefinity was turned on.
Gets even more curious when rolling back to 12.3 the problem disappears and the flickering went away. So either I have a bad displayport adapter or there is something wrong with these new drivers?
Thanks a million!
