I'm still using the stock drivers for the 7970, the first ones that came out. Have newer revisions been released that are worth it? I'm asking primarily in regards to BF3 performance. Are they any better or should I just stay with these?

What settings is everyone running bf3 at? With a single 7970, I find you can only really run ULTRA>no aa>8x texture filtering or 2x aa on some maps if you want it REALLY smooth. Sure, Ultra 4x AA 16x anisotropic is playable, but it has some slowdowns sometimes which can be annoying, so I leave it off. It has to be rock solid for me. Would it be better to run everything on high and pump aa from there? Anyway, let me know if anyones played around with it

I'm playing BF3 on ultra details,HBAO ,all details to max with single 7970,i7-2600k @4.6 ghz, fps is around 55-60 fps with vertical sync ON,and with default CCC options.There is some texture/shadow flickering at large distance,when look with sniper or so,but that is game ****,coz it happened to me with gtx 580 3gb also...Only strange thing is that game uses massive amount of VRAM.I'm playing at 1920x1080 with all ultra details and on some BF3 Back to Karkand maps it uses 2300mb...Game is smooth...now will test with some CCC changes so will let u know my experience...

The best way to keep up to date with the best drivers for 7900 series, is to follow CCC creator Andrew D.
He is the lead of one of the driver teams and is responsible for the latest and best advice for drivers.

Keep a close eye on his twitter page, he tweets as soon as a proper driver is posted. If he hasn't tweeted, it isn't worth trying.

Just installed a 7970 - awesome card!

http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/k96zv/

Looks like it is the exact same size as my 6970, but it is much faster!

That much VRAM? Wow. That's going to be a challenge for those "killer" Kepler 680 cards with 2GB or 670 with 1.75GB...yikes!
