    Even if it's the same as RC3, I'm not sure if the WDM driver was present in RC3. and these ones are official, that is a slight psychological advantage too.

    AVIVO does use the GPU.....lol. This same thing was posted in the other 8.12 thread. i used AVIVO to do several conversions to test the believe that AVIVO uses CPU instead of GPU and my results showed the GPU being utilized and NOT the CPU during the actual conversion.

    Same thing with RC3, crossfire doesn't work.

    My second GPU in device manager gives error: "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

    GREAT!!!!!

    I think a lot of people are going to be disappointed with these drivers because the forums seemed to be filled with hype and anticipation for a miracle driver that would give a huge performance boost. I don't know if any games offhand that take advantage of stream computing to give a boost. I am hoping for better crossfire gaming proflies myself.

    been waiting for these for a few weeks ever since i read something about a performance driver. in ccc info driver packaging version is 8.561, is this the same as the rc3's?

    well i ran 3dmark06 and my score was 15,938, nearly identical to my score with the 8.11's
    i havent had time to test on games however.

    i dont want super performance improvement, i just want the real hardware video encoding (not only mpeg-2) promissed by AMD to this exact release.
