Can't wait to try the new Drivers when i get home. 10-20% improvement in BF3 should be very nice indeed.

Do you know where i can get a download for this?

also does anyone know how easy it is to replace cooling on a Powercolor PCS+ 7950?
I've just had issues with mine and may have to send it back to the company but i'd much rather just replace the cooling or even just the one fan.

Buy the Accelero for the 7900 series, it's not that difficult, and it's amazing.

Average temps @ 1.150v, 1150 core, 1600 mem are 48c during BF3, 27-28c idle.

can somebody test these drivers in BF3 and see if there are no rendering issues. pcper commented on missing geometry which AMD said would be patched in the driver released to the public. pcper encountered the problems on HD 7870.

http://www.pcper.com/reviews/Graphics-Cards/AMD-Never-Settle-1211-Beta-Driver-Performance-Testing/Battlefield-3

"Our testing didn't go without issues though; during one of our test we had some missing geometry that was...distracting.

This didn't happen every time we played the game, but it was frequent enough to be more than a mild issue. To be fair, AMD did tell us about this bug BEFORE we did our testing so they were upfront about it. Also, the driver that is being released later this week for the public to download should have the fix for this in place."

Not really no, it'd have to be some off-the-wall design, the hardest part is putting on the vrm coolers because you have to mix the epoxy for 5 min and leave it dry for 24 hours, the rest is a cake-walk.

It's a bit pricey at $79.99, but after seeing the results I'd pay $100 easily.

If you decide to get it, which I for sure say too, let me know I can link you to a helpful video.

Installed and tested in Battlefield 3 multiplayer with my 7950, gone from 12.6 drivers directly to 12.11!
FPS is clearly higher than before, and less downs and ups in the FPS "drops", the only con I found yet is that the card always run full memory clocks even in "idle" when just web browsing tongue.gif
My solution was setting up another profile with low memory and core clocks in Sapphire Trixxx! biggrin.gif

Give the new 12.11 a try, feels good! biggrin.gif
