    I'm getting about a 9% increase in frame rate over 11.6 with 11.8 installed.

    Has anyone had a chance to see if the OpenCL+Video bug was fixed in this release?

    I've noticed a small increase on my crossfired 5770's in crysis 2 in dx11 ultra.

    I've played through two levels so far not gone through the more heavy tessellation yet but the game seems a lot less jerky in parts compared to 11.7b. Still get slowdowns when running through tunnels but it sticks to the top 20's/scraping 30 rather than low twenties like before, this is at 1400 x 900 I'd be pushing my luck hoping for smooth gameplay @1080p on these cards.

    Working fine for me in BFBC2 (i even forgot i left fraps running and didnt notice any lag on max settings) but.. these suck for Second Life,i still have flickering tree textures and vsync seems borked cuz with it on im stuck at 30fps instead of 60fps.. i need vsnyc in SL to stop any stutter i get.

    Think i'll try 11.7 but i know there wont be any difference so i may aswell just go back to 11.4 again.

    thanks for ****ty OpenGL.. again.. AMD.. nice job.

    PS.. heres a video link to the SL tree flicker..

    Crysis 2 - Maxed out, DX11, High res. text.

    Getting 92fps at 1600x900
    Getting 74fps at 1904x1080

    Timesquare Demo. I get too much microstuttering though. Min FPS 5.

    AA does not matter but is not very efficient either.

    Also, I think I am CPU bottlnecked but it is above 60fps so it is ok.

    So let me get this straight I have to..
    1. Uninstall old drivers
    2. Restart
    3. Install 11.8 + 11.6 cap 3

    ??

    Sorry new to this and I've read a few pages back but wanna make sure I'm doing this right.

    MLAA brings it down from 74 to 49fps.

    Yeah. Need to Uninstall, Reboot. Install Driver. Reboot. Cap is not essential. Got the expected performance without it.

    EDIT: CCreator says to keep using CAP3. So just do it.

    Three things so far

    Morphological AA performance has vastly increased, I've gone up over 70FPS in TF2 and L4D2 to 225 and 180FPS average for both games

    Morphological AA no longer works in windowed mode, only works in fullscreen mode

    Video Playback V-sync is fixed with these drivers, I had to turn alternative V-Sync back to default values in order to view movie playback without screen tearing. Screen Tearing in youtube videos is also fixed

    All my games work fine, like I said morphological AA performance has gone up greatly

    Even with forced settings through RadeonPro? Not being able to use it in Windowed mode would essentially ruin it for me.

    I was gonna post to say that MLAA wasn't working till you said it only worked on fullscreen games ;[ I play starcraft II on windowed fullscreen, and now I can't get the benefits of the increased performance. Other than that these drivers seem solid and fine.
