Boot to normal mode
attempt to install drivers then restart in normal mode
get stopped half way through installation with the error

any thoughts?
I've had that happening with driver sweeper as well.
My advice, don't waste your time with driver sweeper. It is irrelevant imo for today's drivers.

Uninstall
Reboot.
*optional* do a registry clean with CCleaner or Tuneup (not necessary imo)
Install new drivers.
Reboot.
viola.

Yea, but if you look at what driver sweeper cleans, theres no c++ 2010 redist. on there. Also, if I do get the install package failure (which is apparently irrelevant) and then I go to the Microsoft website, get the current version of c++2010, launch the exe, click "repair" and make sure my computer is up do date, I can click the exe for ati drivers and STILL get that failure when trying to install. Is everyone getting it, just because ati messed that up, or its just a few of us?

Whats that
post #46 of 65
OpenCL apps tend to max out whatever CPU core they are running on.

I would think installing an older version of the OpenCL msi would fix the issue, regardless of core driver version, but I have not yet tried it.

It does it's job of removing jaggies pretty well, and in some titles is the best of available options from an IQ/performance standpoint.

Not useless.

Tested the 11.8 preview driver last night results below:

3Dmark11- 11.6 driver Performance Score 4602(gpu 4450) - 11.8 4680(gpu 4552)

Resident Evil 5 Benchmark 1080p -104fps avg to 120fps

Battlefield Bad Company 2 - Heart of Darkness level 60 second run using Fraps Avg went from 62fps to 69fps

Crysis 2 - The game is now playable on Ultra with my rig avg in the mid 30's. But I play the game with setting below my avg fps has gone up from low 50's to high 50's. High fps now capped at 100 as opposed to 85.

Settings/1080p - everything on extreme except -
Game Effects - Ultra
shadows - Ultra
Shading - Very High
Motion Blur - Off

This Driver is definitely an improvement over 11.6 so far.

Looking forward BF3!

30% improvement in MLAA performance is pretty sweet
In some games it is the ONLY option for AA, it might as well be a good option right?
