    You obviously dont know wot ur talking about and have never used it.. SL is open source and have a lot of third party viewers with their own development teams (one of those does optimizations for AMD cards) and all those viewers run crap with the drivers i have stated. Funny how 12.1 run great isnt it.. and btw i havnt done any 'bitching', im just frustrated at the well known lack of OpenGL knowledge that AMD have always had.

    I guess ur bitching above by calling them 'shonky drivers'.. ;)

    Had I think my first problem with these drivers

    I went to sleep for four hours, woke up, both monitors were off. Moving the mouse woke up both. I don't have screen savers enabled, and I disabled the option to turn off the screens when idle.

    Event viewer doesn't report a driver crash or any events

    This driver is working very good on my 7970 CFX setup, in both BF3 and Deus EX..

    But twice my screen has gone black while browsing, and i have to restart.. any idea?

    Windows 7 is capable of reverting back to default settings which it assounds like it did. Also, one thing i noticed in Crysis 2, I can't save my suit powerups-not good on nightmare

    This has happened to me also many times, you will also notice that your nightmare has been dropped also and you must reload an old save to get it back. Once you load an old save go back to the present one and you will be back at nightmare.

    I am on the Beta driver as well as the beta CAP and Max Payne with nearly everything maxed out (no MSAA, but FXAA at Very High), it runs so damn fluidly! And I', running EF mode of 6048x1200, sily smooth going. The Beta CAT 12.6 and CAP are keepers for me, damn MP3 is actually quite fun when everything runs right.

    Dude, why do you need hardware acceleration? it works fine without it.

    so using cards released a year before skyrim + forcing an unrelated game profile on it = some sort of false advertising? :puke2:

    WoW.....there's ignorance for you. Filing a complaint with the BBB against AMD won't do anything. The BBB has zero authority. Even if they did, exactly how would the BBB penalize AMD for problems related to your configuration?

    No but they dont support tripple xfire

    No I'm pissed because they're support for triple crossfire is weak. My mention of Skyrim was actually positive for a change. So what these cards aren't new. These cards are new to me anyhow and old enough that they should still support them with their new drivers which screw up big time. You must be what an AMD ATI fan boy? Seriously.

    Free country..

    Maybe some PR person at AMD will give a ****e and addresses these problems which arent there for everybody but are there for some. If they did enough QA or QC work maybe it wouldn't be so bad. But what do you care if I file a complaint? Do you work for AMD? Do have it tattooed on your arm or something? Its a free country. I can file a complaint if I want even though I know it wont help much. I really don't care what you fan boys really think anyhow...

    moheban has a point there. Crossfire support for Skyrim seriously sucks... its now 7 months and I still get the flickering. Since the 1.6 Beta is released even new users as spyre himself are experiencing the yellow flickering! It forces us to disable crossfire entirely and especially on my 6970m's I could use the extra horse power. And spyre remains silent after I directly adressed him twice, I asked him if this issue is being looked into.

    I don't like the direction this is going.
