    Still can't decide if I should install any CAPS and if yes, then which version (11.3, Asder's latest CCAPS etc).

    Any definite answer?

    2x5770 1gb, if it matters/helps.

    Finally got to play a clean, bug-free round of Strike at Karkand! Good performance with 12.1, so I'm not sure if I want to test 11.12 WHQL....

    No. Driver has app profiles built in. It's stated in the notes that other apps may mess with the per application profiles and you should set everything to default first to clear any older profiles.

    I have downloaded and installed this driver:

    I run ccc and rage internal at everything maxed, good smooth play.

    Skyrim, i had to back off shadows and water a bit to maintain ultra setting and smooth play. I had to back off setting on ccc also. I will be experminenting more and when i get the best compramise settings on skyrim, i will post em for you.

    I keep getting closer, but still can't run high default settings in bf3.

    Even though my framerate is >60 90% of time when set to high, looking left or right has a slight but noticable lag or stutter to it that obviously dissappears when I set it to default medium.

    Probably I can modify high by downgrading one or two settings but I havn't figured it out yet. Any suggestions with this preview driver, ie. how to setup the bf3 profile to push performance?

    My res is 6046x1080 and I always run gametime.maxvariablefps 60 which helps smooth out the gameplay a lot. (wish I could get that setting to autoload, I tried a user.cfg file mentioned elsewhere but it doesn't appear to work).

    Driver works fine for Mobility aswell (finally no Bluescreen on installation, Yay!), I had to change Skyrim's Crossfire mode to AFR in CCC though. Battlefield 3 is smooth like in Nov18 8.93.

    Only thing I'm wondering about, has anyone had success with HD3D? I can't seem to get it working... Skyrim, Dungeon Defenders and Bad Company 2 still only use 1 Gpu under TriDef. Let me know how to set it up correctly :D

    Using them now no problems with my 6970 everything running great. Skyrim, APB, BF3, MW3 and saints row 3 no problems with those so far.

    What are you talking about? I've been using per-game profiles for years with ATT. :wanker:

    any ideas or suggestions (i've had a quick scan) about the "reactivate AMD colors control" every time I start up bug?

    Alrighty. So essentially running this and D3DOverrider w/Forced Triple Buffering will do the trick?

    Same here, Stuttering and FPS drops in smoke, etc.

    Any driver solves this?.

    I've tried every combo so far and the best I can get is with 11.11a and 11.11 CAP 2. It still has problems but it's better than the others.

    Mine is doing the exact same thing! I'm going back to 11.11c for now. Everything was running beautifully, even Batman with dx11 high tesselation :)

    Maybe 12.2 will be sorted out

    If I enable CFX on Trine2 my framerate halves and it's really jerky.
