    At least you're a honest person, that's good, not like some which just love bashing AMD.

    We all know there's problems in both Nvidia's and AMD's drivers, sometimes Nvidia has more problems, sometimes AMD... that's it.

    Before I had full screen with 11.6, but now with 11.8 I have no full screen.

    Clocks are fine on the Official 11.7's, now to see if ive got the 2D/3D clock bug they say they have :p

    EDIT: no 2D/3D clock bug (which i expected, as ive never ever had it), so i'll be sticking with these till the 11.8 Officials come out, as no doubt the Overdrive will be back to normal on those as well (key will be back, be all greyed out, and correct idle clocks will be back, and they'll report correct 880 for max core instead of 725) :p.

    Im wondering if its got something to do with the change to the Overdrive, as i never use that (always leave it locked), but ive noticed on these 11.8 previews, and those 11.7 developers (which are the only 2 sets of drivers giving me this clock problem), its unlocked at default settings (as the key icon is gone, and its not all greyed out, so ticked to use these selected settings is activated), where as in all the officials, the key icon is there, and so it is locked (all greyed out), and reporting correct clocks, idle of 250/150, load of 880/1375.

    Are you using multiple monitors by chance? If so, this is normal behavior for a multi monitor environment.

    The first thing I noticed changed with this set - they changed "ati" folder name to "amd" :roll:

    I can confirm a smoother experience in Crysis 2 DX11. I don't know whether it is 10% or less, but the gameplay is definitely better over my previous drivers, 11.6 :)

    So what do you people prefer Catalyst 11.6 instead of Catalyst 11.8?
    just seems to be problems and predominance drops in 11.8

    Are there mobility sport??

    I'm not saying to have the game windows on screen, I mean that in DX9 I fill the screen, but let me put DX11 black margins.

    Anyway I can confirm that this driver did not do anything 11.8 good at games, for example, I have multiple BBC2 FPS drops, and before all taxes with 11.6 perfect.
