    Just a note:
    After I driver-sweepered off the old drivers and tried this one, I reset the settings I had in AtiTrayTools.

    In the standard tweaks, I unchecked 'disable block write' and enabled 'WMV Acceleration', and the system didn't like that... Display freezes etc, and quickly the system locked up. Upon reboot, same thing! but second time I managed to get into tray tools in tme to reset those two settings back to default.

    I believe the offending setting is 'WMV acceleration'. Just thought I'd warn people!...

    Disable Block Write is meant to stay ticked as it's a tweak, as for the WMV setting, no problem here.

    Thats what I meant :) I actually disabled the block write by default.

    As for WMV acceleration, not sure why it was causing issues, but it was :) I guess there are bound to be a few bugs...

    Downloaded, installed and seems to be running nice and fast and stable for me in Skyrim. :)

    Heh. I noticed this driver shows 6 separate display devices in landscape mode even though I have it set up for 1 in tri-fire and a subsequent BSOD every time after exit the DX11 Arkham City.

    This driver definitely is not ready for prime time.

    Good, I think im going to try these drivers tonight. I hope to god they're better for Skyrim than 11.12 was! Those drivers are a train wreck
