    Yes, I am running an Eyeyfinity setup. The 2 displays that I have connected via Displayport have the thin red line on the left side.

    ok, i can confirm the issues are for Crossfire only.
    Same settings with Hitman Absolution, no microstuttering with the train cutscene before the Vixen Club, no frame drop in the same area (police cars) loaded into memory for the first time. If i do that with Crossfire enabled, when it's loaded for the first time, there is a frame drop to 5 or 7 fps and this is causing the stuttering problem. I hope they will fix soon this kind of problem, otherwise Crossfire becomes pointless to me...:3eyes: for 30fps one 7850 GPU is strong enough.

    Mixing and matching driver files isn't really a comfortable concept for a lot of people, especially if problems happen to arise.

    I had a similar issue with a game, try setting the HDMI as main monitor and the DVI as extended and see if it helps

    It's ok, if u have overclocked your card, just decrease it a bit

    I removed this beta, installed the certified driver with the cap, and the red line went away.

    I am hopeful for an additional beta to fix this issue with displayport and the beta release.

    I did the same things seem OK for now. I really want the driver with the new timing though. Early testing looks very promising.

    read on forums that AMD has released a "prototype driver" to selected partners, results are amazing, the only one disappointment is the final release date..maybe summer! search for "AMD frame pacing prototype" on Google... :)

    Yes many people believed these were the prototype drivers but sadly they aren't. I just wish someone will leak those drivers because they boost observed framerate through the roof.

    :) yes, especially they make the gameplay smooth, that is the most important thing to me...i don't understand who needs (eg.) more than constant 60fps at 60hz at high-ultra settings...I could understand if they had a 120hz monitor...but how many people got something like that?

    These require a thourough scrubbing

    if you half ass it, you will have issues.

    I need a prototype drivers for better smooth gaming with mobile dual graphics 7660G+7670M. Because framerate is very ugly sometimes, fraps shows 40+ but visually around 25-30 lag...

    I really hate that Benchmark3D is dead. Rather than comparing time stamps and version numbers, I would just visit the site and see if the driver is better or not.

    Longtime lurker here:
    Performance of 13.5b2 is better than 13.3 with 2x7970 for the games I tested.
    Improvement was between 2% and 10%.
    I tested right before- and after the installation of 13.5b2

    Details: 2x7970@1080Mhz, 2600k@4.6Gz, 2560x1440, maximum general settings possible + highest or 2nd highest AA.

    Games (numbers are from my memory so not exact):
    Shogun 2, +10%, 43FPS -> 47FPS (all ultra, 8xMSAA)
    Tomb Raider, +2% (2xSSAA, TressFX)
    Sleeping Dogs, +4% (especially in last indoor scene which shows lowest FPS)
    Hitman Absolution, +3%
    Infinite +?% (generally higher numbers)

    All games tested improved in performance and I didn't notice any bad visuals in any benchmark runs.

    Which Games? Immediately or after a while?
    If the drivers utilize the GPU more, an overclocked GPU is more likely to crash.

    The 4% improvement in Bioshock is there. But I assume you get the same thing with 13.3b3/13.4 + 13.4 caps.
