Oh ho ho! Nice find on these! Everything is great, and its the newest stable driver for HD 7900 series Crossfire!

Thanks for this post! The extra goodies with Morphological AA is nice too!



EDIT

BF3 Crossfire WORKS on this set!

Best drivers to date, especially for HD 7970 Crossfire. Now to try Alan Wake.

For now they seem to perform very good, will see what it is tomorrow, cause that first day experience doesn't always seem to stay with newer driver sets.

Cause there a bunch of ass holes. all of those features above should work on 69xx series cards aswell not just 79xx series cards.

its called making money to AMD/ATI afterall there a business.. tricking people into upgrading.

I think you might be overreacting a little..

AA i can understand to some extent, as the 7900 is more powerful, and it may bog down the 6900...

but MLAA is just a shader algorithm, i see no need to exclude 6900 series...

k.

this driver set is definitely a keeper until something better comes out. i can confirm bf3, alan wake and warhammer 40k space marine play alot beter. the light flickering with borderlands is gone as well. i was starting to loose hope. but i guess 3 months after the fact is better than not happening at all.


EDIT:

thanks asder00 for the driver.

Self Centering yourself won't change anything. Those of us that upgraded to the 7900 series understand the potential there, and of course we have a means to do so.

If you just blindly claim things like this, and let anger rise to spell our your comments, you won't understand.

If AMD/ATI believe that the 6 series can handle it without major bugs, they will do so when they are ready officially.

i just tried me3 with this code branch, and MLAA on, it seems to be using MLAA 2.0 on my 6950, as the text, while a bit overstaurated, and a tiny bit blurry, its deffinately not all messed up like the MLAA 1.0 was...

my big test is starcraft ii, but i cant seem to get Radeon Pro to apply the profile so i cant tell...

I cant even get the render mode overlays to show up which was my indicator that the profiles were applying. It doesnt show up for me3 either, but at least i know the profile is being applied as the text deff changes.

i think perhaps it works for cards prior to 7900, they just aren't going to acknowledge it so they don't have to support it..
