Nope. No improvement, unfortunately.

Did you remove old drivers completely? Give us 3DMark11 result.

UPDATE: So I went back to the store to return the 7950 and on my way in, I spotted this gem behind all the boxes:



The store guy completely forgot to check his inventory! I did some quick googling and bought it on the spot. It's running cool, quiet and best of all, I don't need a crappy adapter to plug in a 3rd display! Thank you Nvidia! A word to AMD: "Fix your *****!".

Someone's going to need that extra VRAM on the 7950/70 pretty soon... rolleyes.gif

I'm totally fine with losing a gig of VRAM rather than suffering from screen tearing and the use of an extra adapter. I'll either lower the quality of GTA V or play on 1 screen wink.gif
