The new Catalyst 12.x 8.960.0 February 14 drivers are still **** drivers just like every driver put out so far to date for the 7970s Alan Wake still unplayable in crossfire with or with out caps this is with the new Catalyst 12.x 8.960.0 February 14 drivers and a clean install of windows . I should have waited for Nvidia to put out there new high end and got that cause it is going to smash this card . Dont get me wrong im no fan boy for nvidia matter of fact I have never had a Nvidia card to date, just like AMDs cpus I had for years I waited on bulldozer to be released befor upgrading to see if it would kill sandybridge and guess what It didn't thats really sad a 8 core can not beat a 4 core. If AMD keeps up there crap I will never buy anything from them agin not a cpu or gpu. I was debating on whether to buy a 3RD card but what im really going to do is prob sell both my cards now because when Nvidea releases there high end it will be faster and your stupid to think it want and AMDs card will drop in price which means I will not be able to get what I paid for them back. Every card all the way back to the 3870 I have had driver probs atleast 1 time with each generation. What is taking Nvidia so long to release there mid range gpu is prob cause they want to release it with a proper working driver. HURRY NVIDIA I really am so disgusted with the drivers I will put my old 6990s back in cause they work good for the most part and throw the peice of shi* 7970s in the garbage or better yet take them outside and shoot them with my real Ak to relieve my stress the drivers have caused. I am tired of AMDs ***** as you can see.

Tbh i start to get sick of these drivers too. I know nvidia uses customers as "beta testers" too same way than AMD now when new gen cards are released. But seriously never had so much driver problems with nvidia cards even when bought those just after release.

Almost feels like AMD just hurried these cards out without any sort of prober testing done. Majority of games have pretty poor performance, only new games like BF3 and Crysis 2 are working really decently but racing sims i play mostly works just horribly and has all kind of fps drops and stuttering.

And biggest joke is the 120hz flickering bug that they still havetn fixed at any drivers so far.

I personally haven't had any issue with the drivers. Everything has been playing as it should. From Crysis and Left 4 Dead to Crysis 2 and Battlefield 3.

Same here. Some folks just have horribly unoptimized, bloated, messed up systems and they will of course blame it on drivers. I especially love the part where the complain on internet forums thinking other people actually care. smile.gif

Yeah Crysis 2, BF3, Crysis, MW3, L4D and alot more work but lots of games are haveing probs in crossfire not the ones I mentioned though . I have 290 games on steam and over 120 installed I am not going to put the whole list of games on here but alot are having trouble. all games should work with exceptions for new games but old games should work that have been out for a few years.
