    There are people who don't have HPET just ACPI APIC. If one disables that (in the bios) using XP you will bork your install of XP. With Win7 I would assume the same thing although I don't recommend anyone trying that. The only way I know to change ACPI APIC is a complete OS reinstall. But I don't recall an option to change HAL when doing that either though.

    AMD Catalyst Application Profiles (CAP) Switcher 10.11 CAP1

    Long story short, when you remove Catalyst Application Profiles (CAP), a lot of issues seem to evaporate, specially for CFX. The driver don't like the CAP file (atiapfxx.blb) to be deleted but is happy with a 0KB dummy. In rare case of a game working better with CAP, you can apply back latest CAP with CAP Switcher again.

    AMD Catalyst Application Profiles (CAP) Switcher 10.11 CAP1.7z

    Before someone ask:

    1. dummy CAP (0KB) -Recommended
    2. driver CAP 10.10e (83KB) -I can only suppose lesser CAP size included with drivers mean less CFX profiles.
    3. standalone CAP 10.11 CAP1 (124KB)

    yeah seems the drivers are working fine, but damn some mmo's dont even use two gpus :(.

    I went to the 10.11 cause they just came up on guru3d site.

    Hey von, question for you, you going to do a modded catalyst for the 10.11?? if so hit me up, I'll switch :)

    Gigabyte motherboards note
    Depending on your model & BIOS, Intersil power controllers may be defaulted to intermediate hardware power management, creating high DPC latency under some circonstances. Only way I found to fix that was to install Gigabyte Dynamic Energy Saver, turn it On then Off. Now optimal performance, minimal power management are set (until you reinstall Windows I suppose). You can uninstall DES or disable the associated service after this done. This may apply to other mobo manufacturers using similar PWM controllers and softwares.

    From what I´ve heard, 10.10e is actually newer than 10.11, so I think I´ll be keeing those until 10.11 hotfix comes out...

    Nope this was the 10.10e

    The driver's itself work without issues and I did run the .cmd as admin.

    C1E and EIST have confirmed influence on DPC. But higher C states were not mentioned here. What about them?

    For optimal gaming performance, you should disable all (minimal) power management. Maybe it's well implanted in some systems but this is a general advice from my personal experiences for issues free gameplay.

    The 10.10e is giving me flashing textures in Black ops (namely, the trees' LOD?)

    LoL. I get the same thing. I got it with 10.10d too :puke2:. BO is buggy as hell though so who knows is the first patch might correct that.

    I´m not sure if this mod has been updated or not, perhaps a version number could help.. Just that suggestion

    by the way, your driver is amazing again, certainly keepers after a week of testing

    What does the initial post mean when it says that dx9-dx11 works with the 10.10d version only? Sorry if I worded it wrong, I'm extremely tired.

    Disabling it increase image quality in some circonstances.

    Pointing to this one may be more complete and unbiased (even if the page was disfigured by an (paid?) ati fanboy): http://videocardz.com/27140/ati-‘cheating’-benchmarks-and-degrading-game-quality-says-nvidia

    Secondly my modded drivers don't use CAP, so SFR could mess with games .exe he is not suppose to if enabled.

    In the next modded release, I'll put those options visible. Catalyst AI slide will become hidden. But anyway there is no more performance difference between Standard and Advanced with TFQ & SFR unlinked from it.

    If it's not an issue then turning it off is even more of not an issue then.

    Besides, I thought this mod's main focus is to attain the highest possible quality; turning on SFR still has the possibility of getting some games don't get that 'highest quality' thingie, and there are many popular games right now is still using DX9.

    Well, it'd be nice to have the option to turn it on & off, though. =)
    I'm just against turning it on by default, not the option to turning it on altogether.
