    ?

    doesnt sound like your agreeing with him at all.

    he is claming 13.4 is newer.

    I was the one that claimed compile dates and revisioning isnt definitive and 13.5b2 was most likely newer.

    13.4 release notes are live.

    these releases notes are not inclusive, so performance gains are in relation to 13.4 as theorized.

    there is no longer any doubt.

    These are newer.

    Well, the question IS: 13.5 b2 performances > 13.4?

    No.... the REAL QUESTION! Is if you can use the downsampling tool without having to install an old driver first! :nerd:

    Come on! Someone try it!

    Well I have the mobility driver installed, I did not a measuring yet,
    but in Crysis3 I noticed some performance increase, and the IQ was a bit worse, I had to raise some game setting .

    FarCry 3 a bit smoother.

    Frame rendering time and fps has gotten a boost in Far Cry 3 atleast... I whould agree on the 4% performance boost..

    Running Ultra with 8x msaa @ 1920 x 1080 and i whould say that these drivers work better than the 13.4's i tried

    13.5b2 :banana: 13.4

    If not having any resolution in the dropdown box and nothing in any of the other boxes means its not working, then its not working

    I dont get it. These are labeled as 13.5 beta 2 but the D3D, OpenGL, and CCC are all older version than 13.4 drivers...

    Do these actually contain any new fixes over 13.4's then are there any release notes as of yet?

    EDIT:

    Nevermind found this,

    Feature Highlights of the AMD Catalyst™ 13.5 Beta Driver for Windows®

    Performance gains seen on the entire AMD Radeon™ HD 7000 Series for the following:
    Far Cry 3: Improves performance up to 4% with Anti-Aliasing enabled
    Shogun II: Improves performance up to 20% with 8x Anti-Aliasing enabled
    Tomb Raider: Improves performance up to 6%
    Bioshock: Improves performance up to 6%
    Borderlands 2: Improves performance up to 17%

    Hey guys.

    I uninstalled my 13.4 drivers then installed the 13.B2 ones directly from AMD. However, now I have a thin red line down the left side of my two monitors.

    Any ideas on getting rid of these lines? Anyone else experience this?
