So I have the latest 8.11 RC1's installed. Gaming performance is perfectly fine, however I noticed that my 2D performance seems a lot worse than when I had my 8800GTS G92. Smooth scrolling on FF3 isn't that smooth at all. I have iTunes + Multi Plugin installed, and the window is semi-transparent. Moving it around the desktop is rather choppy, and ups my GPU usage to about 75%.

This is surprising, really. I'm pretty sure it was the same case with the 8.10 hotfix drivers as well, since I did go through installing those while getting my card set up.

Anybody else been having desktop/2D related performance issues with XP32 Catalyst drivers?

IDK what the problem is, this has been across multiple drivers and formats, 32/64 bit, XP/Vista.

If you find a fix, lemme know...please

Yeah sure thing, if I find one.


While I certainly don't have any buyer's remorse about my card, this IS one of the few things I do miss about my old 8800GTS G92: 2D performance. My other gripe is that alt-tabbing out of games isn't as snappy as it was on my Nvidia.

It did for me too. Excellent drivers, these 8.12's. Even on XP.
