No, heck I didn't even install it.

ive just noticed my card temps are 5c higher at idle with the 13.1 dirvers, for official drivers and the with HDMI fail problem and the temps going up this is very poor AMD. you have had months to get this right on your next official driver release. nothing is changing with you bringing out driver like this. POOR

Did anyone else realize how much they've trimmed the downloadable .exe? It's been slimmed down more than 50MB!

Installing and reporting back with both a 6950 2GB and a 7660D.

No, it's not -if we're talking about the "standard" DX9 flickering/flashing. They either don't play the "proper" Dx9 games or they have no patience to reproduce the issue or they just don't even notice it.

In some games, the problem is subtle and happens fast, while in other games, if you find the hotspot you can get a continuous stream of corruptions. On Skyrim for instance, it's fast and difficult to find the hotspot in order to get this:

This thing happens on many DX9 games, but the flashing can be a little different... Some times is just black lines, white or black flashing etc.

If they can't find and fix the root of the problem, it seems like we'll be getting "tweaks" for the games people still play, like Skyrim. If 13.2 drivers don't fix the root that will get rid of the problem generally, once and for all, then... Well, whatever.

I play Age of Empires 3... It's an extremely old game that can easily reproduce the problem. If they actually fix the issue, the problem must go away on this game, likewise. Otherwise, I wouldn't expect a tweak for Age of Empires... But also means we're stuck with defective cards.

Are you using vsync by any chance? If so, this has nothing to do with the drivers themselves, but with the way vsync works, specially with source engine games for some reason.

The fix is easy enough though. You need to edit your autoexec.cfg file in your tf2 configurations folder, and limit the fps to 0.1 lower than your refresh rate. For example:

Your refresh rate is 60hz -> limit your fps to 59.9. You can do this by adding fps_max 59.9 to your autoexec.cfg. If your refresh rate is 120hz, you limit it to 119.9, and so on.

This completely fixes input lag with vsync on in source engine games, and the same idea applies to any other game with input lag while using vsync.

Tested now, so bad performance in Photoshop CS6 with painting tools and others (btw, the flickering bug with advanced gpu acceleration is gone).

From what I have read on techreport and test of 13.2b there is a problem with memory management in the driver... New rewritten GPU memory management may (or not?) be present in official Beta 13.2 release in few weeks.. All the issues with image corruption i have seen look exactly in that manner.

I had flickering issue with skyrim with vsync off only. All the other games is fine for me (sc2,witcher etc etc)

Try 13.2 ! The driver fix the problem completely.
