    So basicly, no gains unless you're using Eyefinity and rare CF setups or happen to still use VLC............


    Not really ground-breaking.

    well 25 points in vantage does not equal 5 percent to me.
    have to test other games but i swear there is a little bit of graphical anomolies going in in the shadows in things like batman arkham asylum where there wasn't before...so the *extra* 5 % i fear is them doign a shonk.

    oh also vlc 1.1 hardware acceleration...have,nt tested that one yet

    From the early feedback im getting, these drivers cause problems with clock speeds not returning to idle after 3d gaming...

    Full 3D clocks on both GPUs but only one GPU returns to idle/2D clocks on exit, GPU2 remains at 3D clocks:

    and

    Only one GPU switches to 3D clocks, the other remains at idle/2D clocks

    And various users are reporing BSOD problems...yet again!!

    Anyone want a pair of 5870's?

    Just uninstalled my 10.6 Version and threw on 10.7 (Uninstalled, Rebooted into safe mode, DriverCleanerPro removal, rebooted, Installed 10.7 and rebooted)

    Here is a before and after of 3dmark06 at standard 3dmark settings:

    Note, Nothing else was changed in the before and after tests except for the driver version.

    SM2 Scores are a bit higher, thats a nice improvement IMO. My screen still flickers with the GPU OC'd with my dual monitors :( I thought they were going to fix that!

    If you meant Bad Company 2, then i haven't really had any issues with the game in crossfire. Clock speed scales down and GPU usage is consistent between the GPU's.

    Will give it a run later tonight, but i never had issues with the game no matter the driver release. Except for the random crashes to the desktop from time to time (no details about why it would during online or offline gaming).

    I'm STUCK with 10.4 because 10.5, 6 and 7 are fucking broken. 10.8 is due august according to amd.

    So, what's the nvidia 5770/5850 equivs? Yea, getting desperate here. I'd rather have sex with a broken bottle than buy nvidia, but if this is the continuance of ati drivers..... Which used to always be rock solid for me too. :upset:
