That said, if AMD do not wake up and fix this problem by 12.10, than there will be no other choice but to jump through hoops to get our cards to behave, which is shameful given that i keep defending AMD drivers in front of nvidia users.
BTW, do any of these fixes actually do something for the weird gpu usage? or are they just for the downclocking problem.
12.8 WHQL is giving me BSOD in metro 2033, and i am playing it these daya again, so its not option.
As it stand now, no fix is available for wrong GPU usage report, luckily its just wrong reading, performances are not affected.
ULPS should only be disabled for CFX users.Edited by sena - 10/7/12 at 4:54am
