    CFX works perfectly in witcher 2 now 99% GPU usage on both GPUS
    though ubersampling is still quite not fast enough under most demanding area tested 35fps is the minimum with uber on that i noticed which is slightly sluggish.

    I think its due to the demanding DOF effects and should be fixed in the 1.1 patch hopefully.

    ALso people that are using radion pro dont need to use it anymore forcing afr can cause issues + why use it when CFX is working now and its probably why the artifacts are showing up.

    Thanks man! Let's see if it's going to improve W2 performance on a single GPU...

    I'mt not sure if my performance on wicther2 has improved it might be my imagination that it's slightly smoother. I checked from Afterburner though that gpu1 usage has dropped from 99% to 89% maybe these drivers make the gpus work less hard.

    Anyway there's something bad. During the dawn when the sun is rising these new drivers cannot render them properly and there's a very bright spot that irritates you and blocks out the surroundings. Did not appear before installing this hotfix

    AWESOME!!! I've been waiting for this! I'm getting no less than 60 FPS @ 1920x1080p, fully maxed out with UBERSAMPLE ON in TW2. I'm also getting no less than 120 FPS in Brink, however, unless I enable VSYNC, in Brink, I get annoying flickering.

    Other than that, thanks again for being first-on-scene AS ALWAYS!

    Hi prior to using this driver what were your gpus running at?

    My gpu 1 usually runs at 100 or 99 and dropped to 89 after installing these drivers. The game might be slightly smoother though.

    All cores seem to be around 80% at all the time. This is 800x600 on Low settings.

    It works for me without install CAP, unistall, reboot on safe mode , driver sweeper 3 and ccleaner regclean, then install only 11.5a 25may hotfix. I get 70% 90% both gpu on my CFX whith BRINK steam version and updated, I tried other games like BFBC2 and it works like charm without CAP, on multyplayer +70 FPS all maxed AA8x AFx16 all settings high and 1920x1080 but i think with other CPU can get more FPS because my q9550@3'8Ghz have a bottleneck.

    I don't notice any significant improve in the framerate.. maybe for single cards this fix it's not working yet. My 4870 sometimes works only 30% in certain areas.. I hoep they fix it .. I don't like to play games like this ( Witcher 1 was the same problem.. same rig and bad performance.. that's why I never played it =/ )

    what kind of deal could you make me on one of your 5970`s?

    i have (2) 5870`s from xfx with center fan design.

    so if we could make a deal i could sell one of my 5870`s to someone.
