    The clock issue was with the previous 8.960 marthand posted.
    I can confirm there's no 'sticky clock' issue with this set.

    Nope, straight install.
    For my 5650m, at least.
    You can always check support for your card by searching for the DEV_ number of your GPU's hardware ID in the .inf file; e.g mine is 68C1.

    Ive just installed them, seem to go fine. Hopefully it gets rid of some annoying "sometimes" freezing on load after kernel 3.0.0-17 update.

    let me know if you can't get rid of the "For testing use only" ad :)

    What version of Linux are you running?

    I have Pinguy OS which is a mixture of Debian and Ubuntu with the newer Gnome 3 desktop, and the last driver was causing texture corruption slowdowns and artifacts.

    Are you experiencing any of those problems?

    yeah, in flash players specially. If that is your concern, what worked for me was:

    » Go to compiz configuration tool
    » Composite » disable "Detect Refresh Rate" and set your refresh rate to "120"
    » OpenGL » disable Sync to VBlank

    I don't think these drivers fixed it by default so you may still need to do those steps I mentioned

    im on ubuntu 11 btw

    I'm still learning Linux. I take it you had to use terminal to install?

    What is the command line. Cheers

    I think you can manage this from your package manager, look for compizconfig-settings-manager, and then make sure you have the packages compiz-plugins and compiz-plugins-main, but I think you should have them already if you use gnome 3.

    Then it's all through gnome ui, you should be able to do the steps I mentioned before with just mouse clicks

    Wanted to let you all know my experiences.

    I installed these just cuz really, my last set of drivers were fine, but figured I'd give these a shot to test to see if Skyrim was still stuttering with these with my xfire setup.

    Installed these and then ran Skyrim with window mod so it was only using one card. Plays good.. went to an area that was heavy foliage and it brought down my fps to around 40s. Then saved and quit, changed the fullscreen=1 in prefs, adjusted the crossfire to tesv profile and reloaded. to my suprise, stutter is GONE. I have suffered with this since the beginning and with multiple drivers now the problem has remained.

    My stutter issue was evident in particular when I would look down at the ground, didn't matter where, or at times when inside caves or indoor places with light sources.. would get a nasty microstutter. I noticed while playing last night that at times the stutter is still there, but its been vastly decreased.. out of playing 2 hours I noticed it only once when I was by the water and there was a nirnroot close by.

    Other than that, the stutter is almost completely gone and now I can finally play Skyrim using both cards!! scaling is not bad either; afterburner showed that both cards had about 80% usage during heavier areas.. very pleased and hoping for even better optimization going forward.

    Cheers, but never mind.

    Just done an install through Jockey thinking it would install a later version, but it didn't, uninstalled them and now I'm getting a black screen on login.

    ****ing Linux ah.

    I concur. Those drivers were really horrible for my 7750, drivers kept freezing the system or crashing, popping the message like "Your driver doesn't want to live on this planet anymore" though it originally was more specific I believe :eyes: Didn't test portal2 but old good Neverwinter Nights kept crashing upon execution.

    Fortunately, 28 Feb 8.960 seems stable enough, didn't encounter issues mentioned earlier.

    I can confirm Portal 2 ain't even being recognized. Just like AMD to fix one thing only to break another.

    Bravo AMD. Bravo!

    Although I have played Portal 2 in many months, I decided to try it again after seeing your post. Encountered the same crash while loading. Managed to get it working by verifying integrity of game cache through the Steam game properties. It had to download one file. Worked after that.

    These ones have the clock problem unfortunately (stays 3d until we run a 3d app).
    Other than that they are great

    One question, how can i know if these have MLAA 2.0 or MLAA 1.0 ?

    Performance, these are as the MLAA 2.0 betas, 80-90% faster then 1.0 on earlier drivers.... So MLAA2.0 on these 12.4 betas, also no clock issues on my 7970 FYI...
