Regarding drivers, I got an answer on my ticket with AMD just now.

In order to update this service request, please respond, leaving the service request reference intact.

Best regards,

So they are taking they're time with this. unsure about Beta drivers though, they might have been talking about a WHQL driver since I asked them about that.

Hmm, well I'm going home now to start gaming for a while and testing this new card. I did see a little screen tearing in Skyrim. Read up on that and I guess if you download the Sapphire driver from their site, it helps. The driver on AMD's site ends with .2 and the one on Sapphire's site ends with .5 .. I'm going to test the .5 and see if that helps any. I have had no issues with BSOD or driver stopped yet. I haven't tried overclocking my card past 1000/1500 tho. That's plenty of power and I have another coming next week. If I can run both at 1000/1500 in Crossfire i'll be happy. I'm sure that will max out anything I throw at it as seeing what just 1 does now.

In your eyefinity array, you will ultimately have 2 DP/1DVI or 2 DVI/1DP. HDMI shares clock sync with a DVI so it is DVI too. Anyways, the difference in clock generators between DP and DVI causes the screen tear issue. You should only have it on one screen! What I would do is if you are using 2 DVI, make one of the DVI you center screen and the other DVI on which ever side you watch videos are use more of. The last screen will be the DP and that one will tear now and then. And vice cersa if you use 2DP/1DVI. Nothing you can do w/o switching to a DCII which has 4 DP ports.

Also, about your post regarding your 480s, the games you mention all have broken scaling. DX11 with multi cards is rubbish. Skyrim with more than two cards is broke as well. Thus those two games won't be a good barometer for comparison because coming from that scenario to a single badarse card will obvious be night and day.

I've been reading a lot of reviews and peoples problems, but I just added my second 7970 yesterday and have run into very minimal issues. In BF3 my CF usage is around 98/99% (even on my little 920@4.2) except when I put VSync which brings it down down to aroun 60/70% each. I ran a couple runs of 3DMARK 11 and no oc I get roughly ~13000 and with a slight OC i get almost ~14500 again on a 920.
