Think someone might get in to trouble for this:
Far Cry2, Dragon 2, Homefront, Stalker: Metro 2033 and Bioshock 2 no longer display random flashing textures.

Wow, they were displaying flashing textures until now? I haven't noticed since I don't game with my HD 4870 anymore.

The 12.1 drivers are better (no pun intended)

The AMD Catalyst™ 12.1 Preview includes all of the features found in AMD Catalyst™ 11.12 and also includes all of the latest optimizations found in the AMD Catalyst 11.11c performance drivers (AMD Catalyst 11.12 does not include the latest 11.11c optimizations). It is highly recommended that all gamers use the AMD Catalyst 12.1 Preview driver.

Well the MW3 Crossfire Improvements is random. I mean MW3 engine is like 10 years old already. Why would it need another Crossfire update?

Am I missing something? My 5850 Crossfire is still playing like shit for BF3. I don't want to get off topic, but it's been over a month now and no new fixes.

Figured it doesn't hurt to ask, are you using the Catalyst Application Profiles along with the latest drivers?

Staying with the beta 12.1's got a little boost in Skyrim only 3 FPS but it all helps right.
