    AGP version please? :)

    AMD has stated that they will fix the AGP version in the 11.8 release.

    Last working driver without BSOD was 11.1 on my HD4650 and HD3450!

    Good drivers at least for BFBC2 they're great for me, just like the older ones.

    I'll keep these until official 11.8 are out or whatever newer preview come out.

    However, if I try to watch a youtube video while playing BFBC2, my AMD Driver stops responding... Any ideas? This has been happening to me suddenly since a few days ago, I doubt it is a driver related issue because this never happened before with 11.8 preview and it suddenly started happening.

    Decided to wait for the officials as they are out next week, as i guess these will have the CCC overdrive change like the previous set, so no good for me, as they **** my clocks up.

    This one is thanks to Carmack I guess. He's been asking for this stuff for Rage.

    It seems starting at CAT 11.7, it doesn't ask to restart the PC when I un-installed the CAT 11.6. So after I un-installed the 11.6, I quickly installed the 11.7, and again after the instalation it did not ask me to restart the PC.

    If AMD set it up that way, that is awesome, and now with the 11.7's no issues at all, performance is great.

    Any thoughts?

    Honestly, what the f*** do you mean by that. -> "better IQ" <-

    Can you mention/show us the comparison or where check it, tired of hearing this every time (its a fracking hype)

    Sure :)

    Catalyst 8.88.3
    MSI Kombustor OpenGL 3.3: 4056 points
    Cinebench 11.5 OpenGL: 73.25 fps
    TessMark OpenGL 4.1 (Extreme preset): 3576 points

    Catalyst 8.88.8
    MSI Kombustor OpenGL 3.3: 4064 points
    Cinebench 11.5 OpenGL: 72.00 fps
    TessMark OpenGL 4.1 (Extreme preset): 3670 points

    Only one that had lower performance is Cinebench. I ran the benchmark twice - both times the same FPS. Most improvements in TessMark, that uses newest OpenGL version of them all.

    relax guys i only said what i am experiencing, every user has different eyes...

    better iq means = a tiny bit more detailed textures in already played games, better lighting/color combination than before(even on desktop/movies)...

    that's what i see in comparison with any previous package...something is changed but i cannot isolate it and mention it...

    definitely the update is worth it...
