    I tried it with tri-fire 7970's...no bug or anything else...but still no performance in Crysis2!!!
    What's up ATI?
    I'm running three 7970''s and I just have as much FPS as I'm running one card...crossfire with two cards runs great, but with thre it's more than poor...every other game like Metro, Far-Cry, F1 2011...are running great...just crysis2 and BF3 are bad. BF3 is not that bad as Crysis2 is, but it's not as good as with two cards!

    Idle bug is looking to come from Firefox acceleration. ( not tested with other browser ).. FF settings > advanced > disable acceleration.

    its not flash, it will pop up at the moment FF is running.

    Installed fine, now got the activity dial back in the Overdrive (never had it since i popped the 7970 in, so thought it had been removed), and had to redo my contrast/brightness in the Digital Flat Panel bit, as they got reset back to default, will give them a test now. :p

    Anyone else having trouble getting this to install?

    I was running the 12.4 and first did a upgrade over them, but they stalled right after the selecting the components screen. Pops up the Installing Components, with the Overall Progress bars and the bottoms bar fills and then just stalls. Cycles the lower picture, but nothing happens.

    Tried uninstalling the 12.4 and going through the standard uninstall procedure (Drivercleaner/Reboot/CCCleaner/Etc). Then installing them (the 8.97s) fresh. Same problem.

    Did the whole uninstall, clean, and then re-install of the 12.3, then upgrade. Same thing.

    Uggh. I never had any problems with installing any Catalyst drivers with my 5770, 6870, or 6950. But with the new 7950 it has been one headache after another getting any driver to install.

    Trying again, just sitting here watching it roll through its little pictures on the bottom as the install progress bar sits there, doing nothing.

    Bugger

    Edit: And success! It took it 15 minutes to process, but it got off its a** and continued to install. Keep going baby, don't crap out on me now!
    Jesus, that took 30 minutes to process all the files and install the driver. What the hey? All, well installed now. Seems to be fine. Gonna run the normal benches and see what shakes out.

    Currently running 12.3 on my 7690m. Installed this driver and tried playing Bf3, the game was laggy and unplayable. Rolled back the driver and the game ran smooth. So my laptop didn't like this driver for some reason.

    still getting flickering textures in skyrim with crossfire enabled, mouse tracers all over screen, i wish they'd stop worrying about battlefield sodding three and just fix skyrim crossfire.

    Working fine for me these, 3DMark11 got a boost, gfx score went from 89 (something), to 9111, and overall score went from 79 (something), to 8064, also got 86 odd in Heaven (85 odd previously, so about an extra frame there), and the games ive got installed also run fine as usual :)

    Simkin its a beta driver. Furthermore the versioning has no effect on the driver. It's probably an early 12.5

    Got the same boost in 3dMark11 also. Boost from 8450 to 8610 in Performance and from 2690 to 2760 in Extreme.
    Running Unigine Heaven stayed the same (1100-1130 at 1900x1080 everything maxed).
    Dirt3 benches stayed the same at 105 at 1900x1080 Ultra.

    Didn't notice any weird textures or other problems. Didn't notice any wonky texture filtering either. So far so good.
