    I haven't noticed a memory leak and this PC runs 24/7, how big does the leak get and what application is using it all?

    I am unsure of what component causes it, but there's a leak for 100% sure. Basic gaming will show the slow down. Running also 24/7 perhaps your system
    the behavior is slower as not testing games as fast as I do.

    Last things I ran were old 2D Infinity games, EU 3 editor and shadowgrounds games. 2 days on the row I got same results each 24 hours run of system
    graphics slow down (the system is however raw clean Windows 7 32-bit Core only nothing extra to background, applications were run only for the time being used).

    Leak is big enough to cause any 3D application run hang for several seconds when it hits and initializing display gets really stuck. (for example when trying to run anything going full screen switching / testing resolution)

    It seems like 11.4 previews actually used more memory for me.. was at 1.8mb with those, back down to 1.2 with these.

    that's a bit shaky subject to compare idle memory usage :)

    Commit size for current CCC is actually 124-196MB of memory over the load and launch at small 2GB system.

    11.3 will not be faster than this RC2 here...even 11.4 preview...

    maybe more stable...i believe you should keep 11.4 with newer profiles only...

    I bet if i download these i get stuck with the 100% GPU bug So I'm not even worrying about drivers no, not until a game i play does not run good.. pc and my games seems happy with the 10.5s so i just deal with it

    These are weird drivers. In games like Mafia, Stalker CoP, Assasins Creed 2, etc I get better performance... But with games like Batman AA, Crysis 1 + Warhead, Far Cry 2, GTA 4, I get worse performance, significantly worse.... Like in Crysis, I can get a steady 30fps everything maxed out using a custom config with 4xAA, but with the 11.4 drivers, i lose about 10fps, so Id have to run it at 2xAA just to get that 30fps that i was getting with 11.2... I switched back...

    Crysis the same here. Great IQ as well, perhaps improved but can't be certain.

    They won't be faster, as that project molhner (or whatever it is), didn't start until Aprils 11.4's, the 11.3's are March's drivers :)

    I don't care about performance much, but i want 100% stable drivers with 99% bug fixed and others fixes. So i will wait for 11.3 :biggun:

    What about stuttering? I got a lot of stuttering with Fifa 11 and 11.4 preview, is this release better?

    99% bug won't be fixed in the 11.3's, and neither will the mouse lag in the top right corner, as those issues are still present in the latest 11.4's.

    If this is true then I lose all faith in AMD as a company.
