    Are you REALLY going to notice a few missing FPS? I don't really care IMO

    I will have to try it later origin is f'd up. So I just paste the file right into the main BF3 folder, I hope this works!!

    If they are more stable I don't care about a few fps... but the Marland 8.93 ones were working smooth as in every game for me so I shall go test once BF3 comes back on and other games tomorrow.

    Depends if in BF3 in some place it meant I was down to 55 instead of 60 yeah it would piss me off.

    My amd app sdk is failing to install when trying to install everything, should i be worried about this? I clean uninstalled 11.11c and ran driver sweeper.

    FPS in Skyrim like 20-30% worse than 11.1 with 5970HD. Rolled back. :/

    I don't take his benchmarks all that seriously..a few of his testing methods are questionable imo.

    Besides, we're talking what - a miniscule 1-2fps?


    Edit:- Here's an example of wat I mean:
    ^Loada bollocks, he got 2fps more with these 12.1 drivers in Skyrim,
    Anyway I have the same card he does and it's 12.1's are def improvement over the last set. (11.11c)

    The only reason for me to use ATT / RadeonPro now is Flip Queue Size setting. Could someone suggest AMD / CatalystCreator (on Twitter, perhaps?) to add this setting to CCC, please? That would be amazing. Thanks in advance! :)

    On a side note, Skyrim finally performs flawlessly now. Loving these drivers so far. Haven't used any CAPs, obviously.
    This is full of fail, don't trust this. Just get rid of all AMD software (and perhaps ATT / RadeonPro as well), reboot, Driver Sweeper, reboot, install driver, reboot, enjoy.

    Happens to me too, you have to go in and set overscan to 0% ... not sure why but every time I install a new driver I have to do this as well.

    batman arkham city SMOOTH as it's ever been.

    But at 2560x1600, dual 6970s, with or without Crossfire, I get terrible performance. Almost like playing a video game in the old days under "software rendering" without a GPU. Just awful. Why would my performance be sooo different? I used driver sweeper also, and uninstalled the 11.11 CAPs
