    So the general consensus is that idle clocks remain broken? If that's the case, I'm not going to bother with these and just stick with the 8.95 Jan24 (the last drivers with excellent BF3 performance and non-broken idle clocks)

    I was running Marthand's AMD Catalyst 12.x (8.951.1 March 3rd) Win V/7/8 Unofficial BETA before.

    The installer for this driver does not automatically install the graphic driver part in Windows 8. But easily installed via the device manager.

    Before:

    After installing the drivers via device manager:

    DXdiag shows WDDM 1.2 as already said.

    Tested the driver and as i can see it have that Powerplay bug (2d clocks at full freq), but its not totally bugged. Its only bugged at the PC startup. If you start any game and exit, the Powerplay activate and the 2d clocks goes normal.
    At least it worked here.

    About Skyrim, this driver fixed the corruption when AA is ON.
    About general performance i hadn't any improvement in any game coming from Cat 12.2Pre-Cert, but noticed a tiny image quality improvement.

    I recommend this driver.

    it seems that clock bug must affect the 6x series. my 2d/3d clocks act like they should.

    Whats your impressions of these drivers with your 7970 mate ?

    I'm running the AMD Catalyst 12.x (8.950.5 February 24) AMD Official BETA

    Was wondering if these were any better, particulary for BF3

    You r welcome this forum helps me and it is nice that i could help. When you find something that works and does what it needs to do (CPU n GPU) you just keep it when its free.

    Regards

    This driver is rubbish. It artifacts in certain games, bf3 performance is terrible, and it has a bug where it will alt-tab out of my games.

    Anyone tried OpenCL with this set?
    Use GPUCapsViewer and run the tests included with it.
    Thanks

    I rolled back to the 8.95.5, the IQ of that one is far superior imo, you notice it even on your Desktop
