    Yes I had that issue when I updated from 11.5 Preview to the ones of asder00, then I removed them, used driver sweeper later, and got 11.5a with no CAP's, and they seem to be fine for me....

    No Brink or Crysis 2 improvements. What are they doing? Probably enabled crossfire in some ****e like Barbie or Sims medieval lol.

    ATI are really lacking in the driver departments might just sell up both my 6970s and go nvidia 590

    How long has shift 2 been out now ????? and like the guy said above why are they fixing games that are like 5 years old.

    Why would you buy a dual card that has so many chances of blowing up? Not to mention they are capped via drivers.... So you can't really OC it...

    If you move, do x2 GTX580's, else, stay with those beast 6970's.

    Despite the driver snafu's I still have gotten many hours of fun out of my gpu's, might even do a bulldozer/7980 build later on down the line. Just wish Crytek and AMD got along better lol.

    dont get me wrong the cards i have rock, but its the software/drivers side that sucks.
    they can never bring out a game that just works and is optimized dont tell me ati dont get games in advance before release.

    there just monkeys at the helm. granted though when the cards do work properly they are uber awesome.

    Well ran it on the new cap and ran f1 2010 benchmark and it was about the same. Also gave race 07 a whirl and I have to play with it some more to see if they will ever fix the damn texture lag issue. All in all seem to be solid for the few games I have on my 5970 rig.

    I was thinking of upgrading my 470's to the 3gb gtx 580's but I can't justify paying almost $1200 for more ram and clock speed. I really hope I can hold off till the gtx 680 is here and hopefully it ships with no less than 2gb's of gpu ram.

    No effect in Brink. Crossfire still disabled. Yay.

    The 590 would only be worth downgrading to, if it didn't blow up, but it does, so id go 2x 580's instead.

    so much BS talk

    dirt3 is in the DRIVERS, not just caps since 11.4, was in the caps before then, game isnt out still
    shogun2 dx11 is in 11.4, month before the game patch
    dragon age 2 actually ran bad for nv until they updated drivers AFTER release

    not every game is gonna be perfect CF before release, not even on nv!

    shift2 you use the AFR-FriendlyD3D profile since the game was patched only a couple weeks ago, which is after the build date of 11.5 whql

    brink is barely out, probably needs a driver update http://twitter.com/#!/CatalystCreator/status/68770377358249984 instead of a CAP

    quit acting like you need to play a game on release day or else you're gonna die

    Oh, so it's nice to know that we have to wait ANOTHER MONTH (11.6) for the game to be playable on crossfire. Sorry, but there's a big difference in not being able to play a game properly "on release day" vs. not being able to play it properly FOR A MONTH

    i know, but that's brink case, it might be special & require driver changes (still possible to get another hotfix, remember RE5 got one, as did FC2)

    other games get their CAP within days, every game is different, welcome to multiple GPUs :eyes:

    at least it's not the saboteur, where ati had its drivers ready before release, then the dev changes something & suddenly single cards cant even run the game period! then EA shut down the studio for no reason & luckily they released a beta patch that fixed single cards

    i'm with kn00tcn on this one - All this knockin' on AMD/ATI when a lot of the time it's actually the devs that haven't added the support in the first place (shift 2 unleashed for eg)

    - with the latest shift 2 patch for me the the direct download patch has improved my performance phenominally whereas the first patch which was released a couple weeks back was found to only work on retail dvd versions.

    With 11.5a hotfix and no cap running shift 2 with the dvd patch i was only getting 40fps avg and as low as 20fps on mount panarama circuit plus I had flickering textures.

    With the same 11.5a hotfix and no cap running shift 2 with the DD patch i am now averaging 80-91 fps and i haven't seen below 75fps on the same track and no flickering what so ever :) now i just need to test the night tracks because they were so low on fps it was unplayable...need to try this out tonight.

    If the Devs get it right and add the support prior to launch then 9 times outta 10 amd will optimize support for multigpu.

    i wonder about this no CAP talk, all the drivers after 10.2 (when CAPs were first started) install a CAP (.blb) in the windows system folder

    so for example i have 11.5whql, the .blb is april 19, which has a very similar filesize to 11.3 CAP 3 & 4

    wouldnt that mean every driver comes with its own CAP? or maybe it's just not enabled to load?

    Yeah I think you're right - as far as I understand with amd drivers they release caps kinda like "hotfixes" but once they are completed and tested fully they embed them into the following driver releases?

    Never ever had any performerance issues with Crysis2 but on the other hand I've never used RadeonPro. My problem has been light source flickering for some time now although the "decrease then increase brightness" fix temporarily solves that problem.
