    I've noticed with Witcher 2 that it likes to read from the HDD a lot. I started getting occasional slowdowns and a very infrequent stutter and a good defrag took care of it. As for the sound you could try uninstalling the HD audio driver through the ATi uninstaller in the Control Panel and install 11.5's. Who knows, your stuttering issue might have something to do with the sound drivers as well.

    These drivers have been solid for me, no issues and the upper right mouse lag has been fixed and I no longer get a somewhat rare Dirt 3 crash anymore.

    I've got a few apps in a list I submitted to AMD; been palying a couple fo games where this driver blurrs the image so much as to be unplayable, as it doesn't set aspect ratio correctly for my monitor. Had the same problem wit h10.5, but the 10.5a hotfix fixed the problem. Reverted back to the hotfix driver.

    Witcher's on Raided SSD, and already tried removing the audio drivers but leaving the video drivers.

    I'll just remove the whole 11.6 package and see how that goes as i have seen no other difference with them anyways.

    They messed them up or some thing as how can i have a picture but no sound same freaking cable and yes tried changing cables which i thought be pointless which it was unless the video card went faulty same time as i installed the 11.6's.

    Mouse lag i heard people complaining about that but that's just CF right ?. That crap would piss me of totally with me having my task bar at the top of the screen.

    More i think about it it makes me think that the CPU is starting to not be fast enough for these games i guess that time had to come sooner or later.

    Actually there is another game which is Men Of War but i think that's just a badly finished game which either give bad frame rate to ATI users or\and CPU cannot keep up as it always plays like crap. The people i play that with use nVidia cards and i7's which they say they play without issue. Although that game does play better in single player and have heard there is network issues with that game for some. Anyways this is not related to these drivers.

    I find the picture or text is not as sharp when using that Morphological Filtering.

    No need to as it's listed under known problems in the changelog itself (in Catalyst 11.6).
