    My Windows is fully updated always

    I don't use Chrome, but when I started getting this problem I asked here if anyone else did, and others were having the same issue with Chrome

    Had the random Chrome idling issue too, did some research and found a temp fix. Go to Chrome Properties->Shortcut Tab->Target and than add this to the end of the line "--disable-gpu --disable-software-rasterizer"

    Full line should read (example): "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --disable-gpu --disable-software-rasterizer

    After doing this my idling issues stopped..
    Hopefully Chrome or AMD can address the issue in a future release.

    You need to reproduce it, consistently, and report it.

    They cant fix what they cant reproduce.

    Because the only thing AMD cares about if it supports Eyfinity or CFX, not whether it actually runs well. Just look at Far Cry 3 or any number of AMD Evolved games. Just because it has that logo doesn't mean it actually runs well.

    Not sure if it changed or not in later betas, but I was on beta 5, and it caused my computer to BSoD when I tried recording gameplay of GW2 with Evolve.

    That was the only game that had an issue too with recording strangely. Reverted to 13.1, and I no longer crash.

    Well. DeusEX: HR runs perfectly. I always had trouble with games which had Nvidia logo. Usually stupid things as no Vsync in game menu...

    Sometimes when I right click in firefox, the box with properties etc comes out invisible. Weird.

    Other than that I have had good performance with these.

    So when's the damn officials so I can get these frame rendering improvements in all my games?

    SURE TAKING FOREVER AROUND HERE.

    All jesting aside, I am annoyed we haven't gotten a "Used in all games" version, and just the "Used in specific games" beta's

    Same here. And I think that means that drivers with rewritten memory management will be 13.3 or later. That obviously sucks.

    p.s. anyone here use lucid logix on p8z77 asus motherboards?

    Nothing special - just the default (dual) fans that came with my card.

    Hello everyone, I've created account just to share what I notice.

    Im impressed by the way how these drivers improves the performance in GW2. Its simply amazing. I got main problem that makes me not able to use them tho.

    I record a lot with Dxtory - pretty much on daily basis - but with these drivers it is impossible due to an error. Everytime I press recording button, the screen just freezes. Sometimes it is possible to stop recording, refresh the application and I can see the screen again but during that time, the screen is just stack in one place.

    Im not sure did anyone report it but it is confirmed to be 13.2 bug as reverting drivers to 13.1 resolves the problem entirely - except the fact Im losing performance again :s

    Hope that helps! Cheers!

    This is somewhat interesting. I use a totally different program, but it too has issues with recording in GW2 with 13.2 (beta 5 at least)

    i assume fraps records fine? certain sets of apps capture in different ways

    plus there was that xsplit crashing issue that went on for a few drivers

    Dxtory captures directly from the videocard frame buffer, fastest way but could be error prone

    I've had zero issues capturing with Dxtory and Skyrim though, and its one of the modified frame render games
