    After finding and reporting a major bug in 14.9 WHQL drivers, AMD decided to thank me by gifting me a new GPU, an XFX 295X2 !

    Massive thanks to Roy for the gift and Cy for getting it to me!

    More pics will follow, right now I'm about to install this beast and hope my PSU is up to the task!

    I would but my nephew is in dire need of a new GPU (6670) so it's going to him, was his birthday on the 2nd, was hoping to receive it a bit earlier to catch his bday but Im sure he won't mind

    Win & P does nothing when Eyefinity is enabled, and Eyefinity 3.0 is their new feature of these drivers

    Thanks!

    The ironic thing about it is, now I have more than double the power, I forgot to buy any DP adapters for my LCDs, so Im back to 1080p on a 295X2 lol

    Thanks everyone!

    So far without OCing and using the same drivers I already had installed, it's pretty amazing - gonna try the 14.9.1 drivers again, see if they get on better with me this time, chances are there are a few tweaks for this GPU since 14.4

    Doesn't quite feel real yet, very impressed with AMD, they could have just said "the fix will be in the next driver release"
