Just updated to 12.11 + 12.10 CAPs. Haven't had an opportunity to do much benching yet, but it's looking good thus far. FPS in AMD's CodeXL OpenCL demo increased ~30%+; now runs at ~100FPS at 256x256x512. Heaven feels smoother, too.

Excellent work, AMD!

It's obvious, the 680 won't be much faster at that speed than it would be at stock whereas its nothing but improvements for the 7950.

I said it on the release of 7950boost BIOS itself.
It made 7950 on par with 680... when u turn On all bells n whistles in games... push them t their max. And Now with 12.11 7950 is clearly faster than 680. thumb.gif
But Fanboys just don't listen.

Shame on nvidia... beaten by a $200 cheaper card .

I want to see a HD7870 vs a GTX 680 with both at max clocks, it'd be interesting to see how close they are with the most recent drivers.

12.11 fix downclocking issue on 7870 and gave measurable performance gain across all my benchmarks
it broke zerocore power though so fan doesn't spin down when monitor is off anymore frown.gif

I thought Zero Core was a Crossfire only thing, when only the one card is needed, it would shut down he other cards.
