Installed these last night hoping it would fix the flickering I get in Crysis2 but unfortunately it still flickers like mad. These drivers seem solid for BC2, CSS, Homefront, etc. They seem more 'stable' than 11.5b for benches, my scores are about the same, no GSOD or BSOD. (will post some screenshots when I get home from work).

disable hardware acceleration, Go youtube.com then play any video then right click on the video then go to Setting then [UNCHECK ENABLE hardware acceleration] I think this is the reason causing your fps drop.

Installed these yesterday and everything went without a hitch, until today. Major slowdowns and lockups for graphics. The graphics will literally lock up for 20-30 seconds at a time, then recover, then lock up again. I can go an hour without this, then it starts, then stops, then starts again. Never had this happen before. I think I may need to roll back to 11.5 if I cannot resolve this by disabling crossfire, then reinstalling the driver, and then re-enabling crossfire.

Ugly stuff...

Uninstall everything ATI via Catalyst Install Manager, reboot, then run Driver Sweeper, clean all ATI crap, reboot, reinstall 11.6. That worked for me and no problems so far.

Seems they've finally fixed that damn flickering.

I can finally play Crysis 2 without having to constantly change the brightness settings.

This is also the first update in months that installed without ending in a black screen.

No problems, so far (fingers crossed).
