    Anybody else had problems with the new 13.1 drivers?
    I used to get over 200fps in starcraft 2 but the 13.1 drivers drop my framerates to about 60 dipping below 20 at times making it totally unplayable. Weird thing is GPU utilisation never goes above 30%. Going back to 12.10 fixes it but then I don't get the benefits of the new drivers in Far Cry 3! GGGRRRRRRRR!

    I've always had ATI cards but I'm really getting fed up with the endless driver issues. I think my next graphics card will be nVidia.

    Hey there,

    if you like to use the old drivers for starcraft, but the latest drivers for everything else, you should have a look over here and follow kusaros' advice.

    Or read this page.

    Wow! I had bad fps with 13.1 on SF4. Followed this guide and it really works! It gives the 12.11 beta's performance. Great tip.
