    Cause there a bunch of ass holes. all of those features above should work on 69xx series cards aswell not just 79xx series cards.

    its called making money to AMD/ATI afterall there a business.. tricking people into upgrading.

    I think you might be overreacting a little..

    AA i can understand to some extent, as the 7900 is more powerful, and it may bog down the 6900...

    but MLAA is just a shader algorithm, i see no need to exclude 6900 series...

    k.

    this driver set is definitely a keeper until something better comes out. i can confirm bf3, alan wake and warhammer 40k space marine play alot beter. the light flickering with borderlands is gone as well. i was starting to loose hope. but i guess 3 months after the fact is better than not happening at all. :nerd:


    EDIT:

    thanks asder00 for the driver. :thumbup:

    Self Centering yourself won't change anything. Those of us that upgraded to the 7900 series understand the potential there, and of course we have a means to do so.

    If you just blindly claim things like this, and let anger rise to spell our your comments, you won't understand.

    If AMD/ATI believe that the 6 series can handle it without major bugs, they will do so when they are ready officially.

    i just tried me3 with this code branch, and MLAA on, it seems to be using MLAA 2.0 on my 6950, as the text, while a bit overstaurated, and a tiny bit blurry, its deffinately not all messed up like the MLAA 1.0 was...

    my big test is starcraft ii, but i cant seem to get Radeon Pro to apply the profile so i cant tell...

    I cant even get the render mode overlays to show up which was my indicator that the profiles were applying. It doesnt show up for me3 either, but at least i know the profile is being applied as the text deff changes.

    i think perhaps it works for cards prior to 7900, they just aren't going to acknowledge it so they don't have to support it..

    Probably gonna have to try it yourself or wait for other feedback, but it "should" work on Win8 x64 probably without WDDM 1.2 (note I could be wrong, I didn't test this, etc)

    Can't say too much yet, have to do more testing... They seem solid so far.. But, did I kill too many braincells on St. Pat's but what does this line exactly mean in the rel. notes?

    To be supported in AMD Catalyst 12.4

    Maybe it's just a really bad case of the Monday's, but does that mean these go final in 12.4? And/or, if this is indeed a beta, why isn't it a 12.4 beta? Sigh, me confused... :bang:

    Nice driver, pity OpenCL still not compatible regardless of version. I use it with SVP coverter (25->60fps) HD videos in real time.
    With OpenCL working the graphics card is able to shave 20-40% off load from a quad core which is something, considering that the process is already heavy on the cpu.

    The above discussion about the 6000 series support and MLAA 2.0 working for those with the 8.960 (12.4 branch) drivers makes it so that to me it appears that refers to support for older hardware although it doesn't specify which exactly.
    (5000 and 6000 series probably.)

    EDIT: And the note about 12.4 above that I guess is to support forced AA improvements under DX10 and DX11 instead of just if the game supports AA natively. :)

    Installed, played some games like ME1 and ME2, working perfectly fine so far

    One thing I noticed for some damn reason is my text is -MUCH- sharper with this driver then it was with the 12.3 officials, hell it was the first thing I noticed the first millisecond Windows loaded was all my windows and text were sharper

    I think what they meant was that these features are beta/for testing in this 12.3 beta, and will be official in 12.4

    Skyrim runs perfectly for me in Crossfire. No flickering. BF3/SWTOR super. All is quite well with this set.

    No face/menu flickering when you press ESC? Did you use the predefined Profile for CfX, or AFR, or didn't change anything?
