    Not to mention you can't use things like ENBseries with Crossfire turned on in Skyrim or it's a total mess (both performance problems and flickering / texture issues). Even just stock Skyrim on Crossfire for myself and many other users results in flickering of water surfaces or smoke clouds... I'm not fussy, but surely it can't be THAT hard to fix? Yet the game has been out for how long now?

    ENB is custom shader replacement through injector. Yes, it's hard to implement.

    I'm pleased to say this driver release has fixed my HDMI audio problems. Nice work AMD and thanks Asder for the link.

    Alright so... 3D clocks still locked, overdrive section of AMD drivers still disappear when clicked, and artifacting in some games which requires an alt-tab to fix.

    Seems like a standard run-of-the-mill AMD driver.

    I also experience the overscan reset like many others when using HDMI on my two Radeon HD 7970 CrossfireX after installing these drivers (clean install).

    I then uninstalled the driver once again (clean) and reinstalled it and which fixed the overscan issue.

    I noticed some video corruption too,not very often like every 10 minutes in every type of movie I play, I get some green screen for 1 sec or some screen blinking. I use MP . It doesn't crash just the green rendered frames/s .

    Sorted it, goto Device manager and right click GPU2 > update driver > browse my computer > let me pick > choose 8.980 again from the list and tell it to update

    It took about 5 minutes of the screen flashing on and off but eventually fixed it and now both GPUs are back to normal idle clock speeds

    Similar here. Flickering on all browsers. Then couldn't start up system. Automatic fixes ended up resorting to a Windows Restore savepoint with 12.4

    So for my system, 12.4 WQHL seems stable but this 12.6 certainly not.

    that's good, someone with an actual connection can reproduce things & try private hotfixes

    the point was already made in the skyrim thread, not moheban... just cuz someone isnt crying & complaining like a baby doesnt make them a fanboy, how stupid... nobody put a gun to anyone to buy a 2nd card or a non multiplayer game at $60, a fanboy pretends nothing is wrong & talks bad about everyone else

    First off, you need to watch the language and attitude. Attempting to insult others only makes you look less than competent.

    Second, whining on this forum doesn't do any good. AMD has provided ways to give feedback on drivers. Use them.

    Third, I'm far from being an AMD fanboy. This is my first AMD card since the HD4800 series launched in 2008. Since that card I've had a G210, GT220, GT240, GTS250, GTX275, GTX460 and GTX560Ti. So far, in 20+ years of computing, I've only experienced a handful of issues that was directly related to any driver. It's not AMD's, Intel's or nVidia's fault that games are so poorly coded.
