    Thanks Postman. I've noticed that WHQL drivers are more easily changed from one to another by simply using the Catalyst install manager. However, I have found the most recent betas requiring a clean uninstall with something like Atiman. What I found interesting was a tweet from Catalyst maker suggesting that betas be cleanly uninstalled and installed. I think I'm sticking with WHQL drivers from now on.

    trifire 'sad state' is different from single cards, so i would always make that distinction (also it was just eyefinity+tri, not eyefinity+dual or tri+single monitor)

    what's this blank screen people are talking about, an on/off blink for a second? i've had that since 2008 when i got this 4870x2, happens before any drivers load too, think it's the combination of cable+monitor+dvi port/timing of card

    Your overdrive isn't working in XP? Mine works fine. Even double checked it back and forth with sapphire Trixx (so I can go to 1150/1700).

    I did find a pretty annoying bug, though.

    Sacred 2 fallen angel/IB seems to get bad texture corruption when you first load it, and may either hang almost instantly after loading a save (but never on the main menu), or when you start moving around (or even if you don't, and just sit after a load). It may even trigger a VPU recover (and if that happens, the only way to fix 3D without rebooting is by going into sleep mode and back out). It seems like you can (usually) avoid the crashes by very quickly opening the mini map and teleporting around to a waypoint and then back, which seems to clear stuff up and then if the corruption is gone, you should be completely fine.

    Probably will have to send this in as a bug report.

    Summoner hardlocks after being loaded about 5 minutes (does not lock in windows 7 at all). Big problem since ALchemy doesn't seem to make EAX work properly in this game in W7....

    is trinity launching in a few weeks? think the driver team has been overloaded for a while now, bethesda issues, 7900 launch, now apu launch, there was a bit of a gap earlier in the year which could be why 12.2 was a great set

    let's see what happens when pre-dx11 is dropped

    They'd better provide performance improvements on all their DX11 GPUs, for moving those GPUs to legacy this early

    they already had some improvements, 8.95 onward had quite a boost for BF3, skyrim had a boost, etc (look at benchmark3d's numbers)

    i'd say all these bugs are a bigger deal than a little fps

    Great driver. 5-10% boost in bf3 for me

    erm...

    Info on the guru3d download page details screen says:

    But the OP only mentions 32bit for XP.

    Could anybody confirm that these work for XP x64 - particularlt for the 7870?

    many thanks

    Ignore the above.

    I just got an email from AMD tech support confirming XP x64 support with these drivers :)

    Now looking forward to mobo's and CPU's that support PCIE V3, and DX11.1
    :)

    It only happens with DX11 options (like advanced DOF and tesselation) enabled and a "low power" card I had this with one 6850, but now with two, it works without stutters.

    Nothing of an improvement in those. PCI 3.0 will only show a difference with at least 3 GPUS.
    DX11.1 os like DX10.1, will live less than a butterfly.

    I have installed these drivers tonight and without even doing a driver cleanup or whatsoever. I have found they are stable and a bit better than my last stable ones with crossfire (8.95.5 february 24th).
    I recommend them.

    Tried disabling all DX11 options I can on "High" setting (game starts looking like crap on lower ones), to no avail.
    Doesn't matter much what I try, though. It's an issue AMD had over a year to fix. I shouldn't be jumping through hoops trying to work around their mess. *shrug*
    The card is 5770. Not sure what you mean by "low power", since the game run perfectly smooth, otherwise, except for these random stutters (reload, run through the same area and there'd be no stutters half the time, for example).
