    If performance is that much down for the 4800 series, I wonder how my 2600 XT will respond. I'll install the official set as it appears its unnecessary for x64 systems. I will bench with 3dmark06 and fraps before and after, Its more likely that performance will be different for all my games uniformly as I play more obscure ones. I suggest someone else bench for 5000 series using fraps to get a more accurate view of what's going on here.

    9.12+fix is working great on my rig, no artifacts and no side effects until now.

    Hope the gray screen issue won't be back.....

    Vantage now > 21'000, that's rather good :)

    Anyone having problem with these and 9.11 on Flight Simulators (both 2004 and X)? Textures at far seems to have no AF, they are too much blurred!

    Well, my frame rate on my games increased across the board by 8%, very nice job, AMD! Now, if I could avoid the issue with games forcing my refresh rate from 75Hz down to 60 without an external program...

    I think this has been covered, but I am going to ask to see if I get a fix......

    With this new drivers; if I use 2 monitors, the main monitor (where I game) flickers like a biatch in 3D mode, while my secondary monitor (where I have riva statistics graphs running) it's ok.

    If I disable 2d monitor everything goes ok again.

    If I remember well, this is an issue that happens under crossfire and multi mionitor ?? .Unwinder solved somehow on MSI Afterburner I think ???

    thanks for the replies.

    Run Regedit go to

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoActiveDesktopChanges and if the value is 1 change it to 0.

    Can't guarantee this will do anything but it fixed my (different) refresh rate issues. (Crysis 24hz 1080p bug.)

    Problems with Win7 x64 and ati 6.12

    I tried installing the 6.12 drivers and it crashes every now and then when I am watching vids in media player classic and when I am extracting files in winrar. It seems to lag when loading the icons for the folders and then the graphics driver crashes and recovers.

    I also have tried it with win7 32bits still with the same results.

    Will try to go back to the 6.11 drivers and see if this occurs again.

    Does anyone encounter similar problems? No problems so far gaming wise.
