    worked on my rig

    My Rig: i7 950, 4 cores, 8GB Ram, HD4870 crossifirex
    First I run RAGE with RAGE Update1 in crossfire with AMD driver 11.9, after cinematics I got a white screen and the game did not load. After disabled crossifre and was able to play the game but textures loaded whenever I turned around (most common issue reported in all other forums) I had stuttering and low FPS even at 1024x768. I uninstalled 11.9 driver and AMD profile (profiles do not work with this Preview driver, this is also clearly stated at AMD's official site). After a clean uninstallation I downloaded this preview driver. I can now run the game in crossfire mode at 1600x1200, maxed out, all problems dissolved. This is a must download if you want to run RAGE like butter:).

    It may have improved Rage stability and performance but this is the second time "Display Driver has stopped working" crashes occured playing Dragon Age II: Mark of the Assassin. :(

    Is your card overclocked? If so I'd go there first.

    Preview Driver

    AMD itself wrote to use this "preview driver" only with Battlefield 3 and Rage and is not supposed to be used as your default driver for other games and/or applications. Hopefully a new official driver will be released soon. After having finished Rage, I uninstalled the Preview driver and roll back to driver 11.9 and Profile 11.9 Cap 2.

    No, it's underclocked to Radeon 5850 specs. The game crashed on 11.5 drivers but never with "Device Driver stopped working" pop up.

    I use 11.9 drivers with the latest cap profiles and just put the opengl dll in the RAGE folder. Rage performance is flawless with everything maxed and tweaked for higher quality, all other games are smooth as anything.

    Maybe try that?

    EDIT -Just put this file in the RAGE folder and you can then use any drivers you want
