Can you take a short video? I'd really like to see it... I don't see these artifacts anymore, but certainly I can't be sure yet this is not a tweak to hide 'em. Skyrim and even on the old Age of Empires III, certainly gone(?), though...

did play skyrim for around 3-4 hours didn't notice anything there. I also played a lot newer DX9 games like the new Sonic racing game no flickering, Mass Effect shows buggy shaddows but not flickering. It's fixed imho, i think most "flickeringstuff" is now a different issue or really game related.

No, its AMD. The game works great on Nvidia cards. As soon as you pop in an AMD card its stutter city. I've seen this on more than one system now.

runs like * on my gt240m even more so it runs worse with all settings on lowest where it runs a little better with a few settings turned up, makes no sense. I think it ran better on my ddr2 hs4670m than it did on my GT240m which is a little better.

Should I wait around for AMD to fix these issues? I bought the MSI R7770. In League of Legends and Dota 2 I will get these small black spots that will show up for a fraction of a second. Most of the time I can't even tell if I saw them or not. Regardless, these are very annoying to me. If I had to guess, I would say they occur roughly every 10 minutes or so. The biggest issue I have with this card is it's unplayable with Dark Souls. I've tried using beta drivers and I've tried countless different fixes that people have had success with to make the game not run choppy.

I'm really tempted to just sell this card, and buy a new, lesser card. (I spend $135 on this card.)

Thoughts?

Do you get the same issue with older drivers?

I think I tried 12.6 for Dark Souls. It didn't change anything. I made sure to do a clean uninstall of the older driver too.

Sad to hear that. I wonder what's the extent of these issues. Is everyone affected?

Black flickering is fully fixed with 13.2 beta 3 and onward (use 13.2 beta 6).

With Dark Souls, run GPU_Z and check the GPU usage as well as the clock speeds in the sensor readings while the game is running. If the clock speeds are dropping and the GPU usage is very low, use what I posted in the driver thread and force the video card to run at full speed at all times, and see if that solves your problem.

I'm using that driver, and I swear I'm still getting some flickering. I'll check again today.

With Dark Souls I tried forcing the video card to run at full clock speeds, and it had no effect. I tried forcing all the Catalyst 3D applications on, and that didn't work either. I tried using dsfix to set the internal resolution higher and have it downscale to my native resolution. That didn't work either.
