    Same driver. Same bug in Overdrive in the 2nd unlocked 6950- If I try to push it to 20% it snaps right back to 0%, then if I try to turn off OD it won't let me.:(

    Could be because I have Tri-Fire, unlocked 6950s or a combination of both...

    so far so good for me in BF3 with ccaps 1.7, smooth overall and no graphical glitches. Although I did notice some lag when I zoom in on BF3, but I think it may have been the server, I'll have to test more tomorrow.

    Not that it really matters, but my 3DMark11 score went up 25 points with these as well.

    try setting to 20%+ when the second gpu is in 3d mode (during a game minimize and set it to 20%+..wont snap back) worked for me :)

    For those who cant set the power control slider above 0 on the second gpu: Turn off ULPS.

    Thanks :) nothing I can do, I still can't get the link in the first post to work... Firefox, Free Download Manager, IE9, can't even find it on the developer page!

    The Megaupload link worked though :) thanks for upping that, its much appreciated.

    Just thought I'd say, its not just the OpenGL component of the driver that has been updated. Even though the file versions are the same, the other files are different too! I expanded (from the .sy_ compressed format) and compared the atikmdag.sys from the 08 Dec release and this one, despite the file size being identical, the actual driver file is very much quite different. Its not the only file like this either!

    So, its quite possible you get different responses from this driver, better/worse framerates, 3dmark scores, etc!

    ah I see the preview driver there :)

    Just for some reason, the AMD site still says Error - Page Not Found, but if I click on even the linux version, it works!

    I don't know if anyone else has that issue?

    Nope, no problems, as said before :p

    I'm using them and they seem to be working well, I didn't really do a performance comparison benchmark but whatever worked before seems to be working for me as well, so far so good.

    I mainly play WoW so probably most drivers should feel the same for me I guess.
