    Hate to tell you guys this but this driver breaks GPU clock control in BOTH Afterburner and Precision. I don't know about RT.

    if it breaks for precision and afterburner, it breaks for RT as well since they are all based on RT core. Im sure updated versions of those will be out in a day or two.

    Hopefully we'll see a fix from Unwinder...though wouldn't that be something if fixing it breaks clock control on earlier drivers? :3eyes:

    I'm getting corrupted sky in 3dm06 canyon&freeze... screenshot does not show it, but it is visible onscreen...

    it's also happening on the other 3d scenes, but it's most evident in freeze.

    I'm really curious if the once-a-day driver recovery I had when playing MW2 is gone with these now.
