    if you have installed cat 11.1a hotfix then goto the same registry section for you ati card and under the UMD sub section and its in there listed at the bottom

    Tessellation_OPTION change the 30 to a 31 im sure thats all i did:)

    I found a solution: removing hidden graphic cards in device manager. There was a 4870 card hidden. My old card.

    That's weird. I've seen that happen with systems that move from physical to virtual, but not on a physical system. :eek:

    I have my 5850 XFIRE installed with the preview 10.12 and the 10.1a ...I have several of the features but not all of them.

    Anyways, I am going to play some games and test it out. I'll report back later! Wish me luck :rockout:

    EDIT: I'M GOOD TO GO! EVERYBODY CHECK OUT FRONT PAGE FOR UPDATES :)

    I have changed graphic cards for several times. 7 keeps their settings hidden in device manager for easy reinstallaion. Plug and play.
    PopcornMachine says thanks.

    My 6870 runs 2.5x faster in 3Dmark 11 with the old drivers than the new ones. 3535 dropped to 1387. What did I do wrong?

    Well so far so good, the only problem I have now is Batman Arkham Asylum isn't playing right. I keep getting flashing lines and it's annoying as hell. Reminds me of the 10.0's drivers with BFBC2 ..that was a nightmare for crossfire users.

    Hmmm, I think I'll pass on these drivers and wait on some drivers with some real performance increase's. Need improvements in actual games not synthetics...

    LOL ! One reason why I am still on 10.10e drivers ! AMD/ATI really needs to get this shit fixed ! I am sick of buying there crap and every 3 weeks having them " Fix " there crappy drivers with hot fixes and updates . Why not just put a good solid one out for the cards ? and not only that but make them for ALL there cards not just a select few ? One reason I am going back to nVidia is for there excellent drivers and SLI ! Next build coming soon !

    From what I've read AMD Optimized will be profiled for certain games. As of right now there are no profiles. So you have to manually set the tessellation sampling rate. I suggest you use 2X and re-bench. See if you notice a difference.

    ive treid all the reg benches and am up about 10-20% if i set tesselation to x2 but it is noticeable, not bad but x4 is where its at looks good runs good and aproximates well, normal tesselation levels in everything.

    i got 22560 in vantage as aposed to 18890(normally) at x2 levels and yes i know its dx10??!! i thought it odd, but in unigine i got 1200 points 49 fps avg at 1280x1024 then ran in extreme tess, it looked hacked but i got 1000 points 42fps avg mmm dodgy tho on a 5870

    around +10% in Heaven with tess 4x. It's smoother but I don't know about the image/model quality. I will take some screens tomorrow :)

    Yeah personally I'm most curious about any IQ improvements or changes. Though still curious about performace improvements too and waiting to install these til I have some time to run some benches under 10.12 first.

    No, just rolled back to the old driver. ;)

    Guess I will wait until the official version is released from AMD.

    *head explodes* it's not even for those cards!

    lol
    WHAT IS THIS SHIT! THESE DRIVERS DESIGNED AS A BETA FOR SPECIFIC CARDS DOES NOTHING FOR MY TOTALY UNRELATED CARDS !ARFGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Crazyness dude :p

    Now if these were 5770 drivers and they didn't work maybe you could complain about "getting this shit fixed".

    Maybe if the drivers didn't work for the majority of people that use them as well :p

    He did say that he isn't actually using these drivers.

    Anyway - what is the best driver to use with crossfire 5850? It's something that has frustrated me for months. I upgraded from Vista to win 7 and had had minor problems ever since.

    I certainly say that finding a good nvidia driver is easier.
