    Seems like this is same branch as 197.13, since it have same bug with EVR Sync for me... just OpenGL 3.3 added, so dont expect much difference :)

    Fan works fine no temp increase they run pretty much the same as 196.86 and 197.15. I haven't started metro 2033 yet other then checking the settings I set to play it so I didn't include it in the tests since I hadn't tested it on the other drivers previously.

    Heaven Benchmark
    196.86 44.4, 1118
    197.13 44.3, 1115
    197.15 44.4, 1119

    Dragon Age
    196.86 56-61
    197.13 59-62
    197.15 59-62

    Risen
    196.86 45-47
    197.13 45-47
    197.15 40-41

    Mass Effect 2
    196.84 49-64
    197.13 54-65
    197.15 51-68

    Borderlands
    196.84 62-65
    197.13 61-67
    197.15 63-67

    Just installed this driver, it's good so far, no issues, but I thought they were WHQL? I'm saying this because I got a "this driver is not certified" message prior to installation, asking me if I still wanted to proceed with installation anyhow, which I did, but that message only appears when drivers aren't WHQL so I guess they aren't, but other than that it's ok.

    So I'm guessing these are almost exactly the same as 197.13, save a few minor differences.

    At the bottom of the page lists download links, temps are fine for me same as previous drivers no heating issues. Metro 2033 runs fine can't say exactly if there was a increase seeing I didn't do a proper test with 196.86 or 197.13.
