Common religion over there. ATI user must update every time and start blaming. Also you cant expect to buy something like a HD 7950 use it for 6 months and then change to Nvidia. What you are getting with Nvidia is 6 moths of already prepared driver which you did not exp any of the problems prior to it. I got my HD 6990 8 month after it came out. People before me where going mad about driver. When i got it was fine because much had changed.

7950 is almost a year old. These problems have been documented since it launched.

Point is when you have flickering and flash issues and have to turn off features you DO have a problem. I will never understand why you all choose to ignore blatant common (and widespread) issues. My 7950's flickering and black screen issues (which funny enough, were caused by drivers) caused me to sell it. Waiting for my tax returns but I'm pretty much going to get a 670 or 680, not sure which yet.


Actualy i didn't have flickering and playing a flash video off of youtube specificly would cause my games to close due to flash acceleration downclocking the card and causing problems, By switching to HTML 5(Youtube also runs that) and disabling flash hardware acceleration my problem went away.

I haven't had flickering issues until this 13.1, but now they are bad. guild wars 2 flickers like crazy and Tropico 4 has lots of graphical glitches. Was completely fine on everything else before this latest driver.

Weak sauce, AMD.
