    In BF3, these drivers are a stuttering mess. The 11.12 cap 3's didn't make any difference. I assume they are included. Lower fps and performance than the Jan 17. running caps and 12.1 preview worked better..

    I usually disable ulps, i'll see if enabling again will improve performance.

    It should install already, give it a try.

    As much as I hate to say this, but those are the best drivers I've had in years, no errors so far and some gains in performance.

    I've been trying all sorts, I just came from these drivers after a day's use http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=357703

    before that, I tried the 8.95 jan 17 drivers, they were ok, except my game crashed twice and I stuttered more than having 12.1 preview and 11.12 cap 2.

    What happened to the performance drivers? Even the highlight doesn't show any difference.

    Hey someone with a 7970 wanna try this mod if it works?

    Basically is the 12.2 Preview modified to install on the hd7, i also added the missing files for that card, taken from the latest RC11.
    Win7/Vista x64 only.

    Wow I guess disabling ulps was a fix for older drivers. I"ve been disabling it for every driver i've installed because I read disabling it helped in bf3. I tried the same server running the same map 24/7 and my stuttering is gone when ulps is enabled again. I"m going to have to re review all these drivers.. I apologize for the misinformation.

    I tried 3 times but no luck, still have the same issue. I was using 12.1a driver before this.

    I was using RC11 before this, used atiman uninstaller, installed new set of drivers, works fine.

    Quick test, most likely negligible:
    Skyrim - Dragonsreach: (Ultra Preset/HD6970/940/1400 clocks)
    12.1a - 48fps
    11.12 RC11 - 50fps
    12.2preview - 51-52fps

    Tried leaked 8.950? I cleaned my system with driver sweeper and reinstalled 12.1p. Now all is OK.

    I get AA and overdrive, but is it normal that no application profiles are available by default?
