Was I mistaken in thinking the upcoming WHQLs, presumably based on 14.4, were going to support Windows Vista? Not for my 8800 GTS (as my 7970 Matrix is provisionally dead), but for my better half's 7850OC.

Maybe it's time for you to become the better half and upgrade her to at least 7 ?

it seems like fps drops became even greater with vsync OFF =)
with vsync ON it seems the same as with previous drivers.

the main improvement is that fps drops are now the same for any vsync =)

(with 14.3beta vsync OFF was smoother)

So, I tested this drivers, and it seems that Mantle still **** on my card, but DirectX performance improve a little.
Test range (The lowest fps that I see)
14.3beta - 48
14.4rc - 51
6.25% of Improvements, I Will see the real gains in multiplayer...

Thief build-in benchmark DirectX improve whole 0.2fps compare to 14.3beta.
