    ive always had some stuttering in BF3, ever since I put this 680 in. I just installed these drivers so I will try more later.

    It only seems to occur in the Armored Kill maps.

    BF3 juddering is eliminated for me when I run in a borderless window, as it is in virtually all games including Skyrim/Sleeping Dogs/Darksiders II. Unfortunately I get punkbuster kicks when I run the game this way.

    I don't seem to remember games having performance issues like this when I was using a 570 with the exact same setup otherwise. I am starting to wonder if the 6xx series cards have some sort of compatibility issue with my motherboard or another component in my PC.

    Yes, there's a part in Borderlands 2 spoiler - at the Overlook while trying to get the supply beacon setup to enable travel back to Sanctuary, it feels like it's running average 35fps at this level when all the bots are attacking trying to shut down the beacon.

    I have done completely clean install (uninstall driver, deleted files and registry using Driver Cleaner.NET, reboot, driver installation and reboot again). Just Cause still completly hangs my PC in full screen mode. Launches and then when I choose save lastest game I see only dark screen. Can't do anything expect reset PC. Settings in game:
    Texture detail: High
    Shadows quality: Medium
    Antialiasing: Off
    Anisotropic filtering: x16
    Water detail: Medium
    Objects detail: Medium
    Decals: On
    Soft particles: On
    V-Sync: Off
    High resolution shadows: On
    SSAO: Off
    Point light specular: On
    Bokeh filter: On
    GPU Water Simulation: On

    * This issue wasn't present on 2XX series drivers.
    * Not present only when loading the game in windowed mode.
    * Reinstallation the game didn't help. Steam version.

    I really appreciate any help

    CAnt say there any performance difference from the 306.23, But I can say AO actual works in these drivers and dont say In compatible like the 306.23, In fact these first 30x.xx drivers that actually have AO working in Swtor

    I have my settings maxed out on this and other drivers and it works great! If it's a steam game right click, properties, local files tab, verify cache

    I would say you personally have a problem with your PC then. I have never had problems and this install used to be run with AMD cards!

    Good luck.

    So I take it they still haven't dumped the ancient 6 and 7 series cards with these?

    Note: MSI afterburner with 60 fps lock will workaround those problems.
