Target-Independent Rasterization (TIR): TIR is a new rendering path that enables superior anti-aliasing in Direct3D driver applications.

So does this mean games get better looking AA?

Good Things
Overscan issue is fixed at start-up
No longer get "display driver stopped responding" during every League of Legends game

Big Bad Thing
I've had my computer just restart on me by itself like 5 times since I installed upgrade from 12.7 Beta mad.gif

I uninstalled 12.7 beta, rebooted into safe mode, use Driver Sweeper, restarted back into Windows to install 12.8

It restarted 3 times before I even overclocked my GPU. And it restarted twice after overclocking back to the 1000/1575 I managed under CCC in 12.7 beta. (It restarted once during running 3DMark Vantage but it ran fine after it).

And the restarts seemingly random. Could survive 3 hours and do it twice in 5 minutes. And event viewer has nothing that stands out to explain what the hell is going on.

I ran HW monitor when playing a LoL game and it didn't restart at all and that's probably the hardest GPU load I've put it through today as far as temperatures..

oh god why would you do this?

you're probably gonna need to reinstall windows to fix this issue, my god don't ever use driver sweeper or ccleaner ever again, it causes most of the issues people complain about

Did you disable hardware acceleration in your browsers and did you disable hardware acceleration in adobe flash.

Yeah there is definitely something wrong with these drivers and browsers. I ended up restoring back to 12.6. I will wait for them to get the drivers right.

I did, the issue persisted.

I've now loaded Windows 8 Ent. on my main computer (I gave in *sigh*) and gave 12.8 another try only to have the browser crash again!! Back on 12.3, and it's working flawlessly. On 12.8 I didn't have the option to enable or disable my xFire.
