Just installed these on my 5970 (windows 7 x64) and it has completely screwed up my screen. I have a horizontal tear and a vertical tear on my screen where the elements are all in the wrong place and having massive rendering issues on the desktop. It does not appear in screenshots, so here's a photo of the screen:



Your milage may vary, but make sure you have a system restore ready if you're installing these.

**edit**

A full system restart does seem to have fixed this, just in case anyone else sees the same issue.

Even if you do have crossfire and these don't work, you can just make your own and base it off BF3. Won't be the best, but better then nothing (hopefully).

Lots of people complaining about this or that with BF4 beta (and water is wet) but all generally positive reports re. these drivers, as far as I can tell or have seen as yet...

I'm not exactly sure what you meant there, but the latest drivers still only support frame pacing on a single monitor with resolution maximum 2560x1600 and only in DX10/DX11.

I misread that. The 13.8 beta2 has Crossfire, but only single display, same as these.
