    I'm still having GPU core clockdowns while playing SC II with this new driver. Anyone here know if this is ever gonna get fixed? I got GTX 670 and yes, I'm using max power performance settings for SC II. but the core still goes down in multiplayer. This however does not happend when playing campaign.

    I'll have to test these with Need for Speed Shift 2 Unleashed. The 304.48s were a real pain, with stuttering and slowdowns all over. Hope it's fixed, or I'll keep 301.42 WHQLs.

    Excellent it looks like they fixed the issue I was having with 304.48! I'll have to give these a try tonight.

    - Fixed an issue that led to a black screen after driver installation.

    These drivers seem pretty much the same as the 304.48 ones for me but then I never had the shutdown, invisible mouse cursor and Deux Ex: HR 1 FPS loading bugs.

    Did notice that among the new profiles added, the one for Alan Wake's American Nightmare seems to contain an error in the executable: "Alan_Wake_American_Nightmare.exe" instead of "Alan_Wakes_American_Nightmare.exe" (unless that was one I added to a previous driver?).

    DX:HR is a weird one because it worked fine for me with the 304.48 (DX11, maxed out settings) and even the Civ V: Gods & Kings demo worked fine under DX11 (unless the demo contained fixes the release code didn't?).
