*new* AMD 8.97 driver

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Up to you whether to try or not, i'm downloading it now and will report back.

Reports that in BF3 textures and framerates are improved over 8.96 driver (12.4 beta)

Catalyst is stil version 12.4 and there's no shell integration to start CCC, just start it from the program menu.

This driver has CLOCK CONTROL RESTORED. Slave cards drop to idle like normal, and ramp up like they're supposed to. I checked the sys32/wow folders and the dll's are there. Yahoo. Now to recreate my eyefinity group and test it out some more.

I just uninstalled the driver via the old driver.exe, cap profile, reboot. Open control panel, uninstall standard vga driver in device manager, reboot. Install new driver, edit ULPS in current folder only. Reboot, AB works like normal, woot.

Welp, the driver portion works pretty good, dx9 stuff is speedy. Clock control works like it should after add the files back in btw. The bad news is dx11 and eyefinity is broke still. The only next step for me is to reinstall the OS as that's the only known way for me to clean the eyefinity configs, otherwise the eyefinity configs persist even with driver cleaners.

Perhaps it's just me, but BF3 feels kinda sluggish after installing this update. 

GPU usage is pretty similar compared to previous releases.

Besides the eyefinity dx11 bug, this driver finally has working centered position taskbar. Guess I will do a fresh os to give the driver a fair chance.

Why are you guys using beta drivers? AMD releases are already borderline buggy, but why torture yourself with even buggier versions?

the only better drivers for me was RC11. And this is pretty close. I will test them better tomorrow but its not buggy in single config
