Anyone know if the performance loss with Single GPU setups is still here in beta 2?
(Specifically with the 7950, I don't know if this is a problem for other GPUs with 13.8)

EDIT: The issue is resolved.

Installed, and seeing the same as for the Beta 1 ones.
Had GPU 2 running at 100% with beta 1, but that was cause of GPU-Z :/

Can anyone who has mouse cursor stuttering issues with 13.8 confirm if that is fixed in this driver?

Not liking the situation. Since I am buying saints row 4 and those drivers have up to 25% increase (which I doubt anyway)
I am forced to install them

And as of now I've stayed on 13.6, so I could downsample... now what. amd....

Can anyone tell me if they've seen any performance improvements and fps improvements with this driver over Cat 13.4 on a single HD 7950?

Just need to know so I can decide whether or not to upgrade or stick with WQHL.

Thanks.

I'm amazed at the drivers installing near hassle free from me (Except the usual "windows installer has stopped worked" halfway through the drivers, doesn't seem to affect anything).

Ugh, but now, both my fans are spinning constantly, the gpu one doesn't seem to turn off.

Yep, found it, 99% gpu usage, constant.

Looks like i'll be going back to something else else I want mad noise, temps and power usage.
