    Performance seems to be higher for me in SC2 with these drivers, is there anyway to stop the clock strangeness when watching flash videos?

    It ALWAYS sets the core to 400mhz and the memory clock to 900mhz, down from 800/1000 normally. Even if im in game, then have a youtube vid open on my 2nd monitor. Seriously affects the performance, and its not specifically related to this driver, but does anyone know of a fix?

    That's because it uses the UVD for flash video acceleration. The UVD only runs at 400MHz. Either disable Flash acceleration in the Flash player or close whatever is using flash before starting the game.

    You're the opposite of that extreme....

    Can someone who has installed 10.8 beta tell me what the registry key path is to the YouTube video settings? I'm curious or that option isn't hidden in 10.7.

    yes it might be, but the end result is i don't get any serious errors after installation. Look at post #110.
    I guess i just wanted to know if the difference between people who are having problems and those that aren't might be in what is running in the background while doing something major like updating drivers.

    Bad crossfire performance in Aliens vs Predators online!

    my 2 Gpus only utilize upto 65% wit this driver.

    with driver 10.5 my 2 gpus utilize to 99% on crossfire!

    10.5 is the best driver ever!

    Anyone know if BFBC2 works better with 10.8 Beta compared to 10.7 in Crossfire? When i use 10.7 the game returns to the desktop during gameplay very frequently and without warning, the game just vanish instantly and you are back the desktop.
