It's just hilarious that they didn't add a performance boost for Assassin's Creed 3.

AC3 lags only in certain areas, but lags real heavy. That means the optimization most likely needs to come from the AC3 developers by means of a patch.

@OP, Thanks for the driver update!

Background flickering isnt fixed as well as brightness issue is still there. On the other hand, Improvement in FC3 is noticeable.

These drivers are great for me so far. The ccc gets a little corruption in the video section. Like parts of the ccc turns black and I have to click on the slider is turn it back to normal. All games have played great so far. Dirt 2 and 3, sleeping dogs and Hitman. I haven't tried BF3 but it has always crash for me even with my Nvidia cards so I wont even bother with that joke of a game. Keep up the good work ATI. I'm not sorry I went Red this time around.

i wonder if they improved quad-fire scaling in far cry 3 with these. the game was made for AMD cards, i don't really see an excuse why not to support it.
