    I suppose that Eyefinity and DX9 are to be fixed in the next version of 13.8 beta...

    updated my drivers from 13.1 to 13.8 Beta (not the latest!) last Friday.

    Seeing better FPS in BF3 and Tomb Raider even on my old 6970 at the same settings. Also trying out Asus DCII 7870 and MSI TFIII 7950. Overclocking the 7870 got good gains in BF3 surpasing the 7950 OCed by 10%. For some reason the 7950 when OCed AVG FPS went up by about 5% but the min FPS went up 20%.

    Will try out this driver and post some scores.

    I always test with 3dmark, 3dmark11 and vantage.
    The 13.5B2 was better than any previous and whql driver for me in scores.
    13.8B scores even better in all three benches. 13.8B2 scores the same, no doubt because it's the 13.8B with some added fixes.

    So if the 13.8B didn't work out for you, then this one wont either.

    Why the hell is stupid .NET 4.5 forced to install (Current version not installed it says even though it is) even if you already have it and you don't need it. It only ruins the existing install so Windows will redownload the .NET 4.5 updates all over again. Someone at AMD doen't have a clue how to make one bloody installer right...

    EDIT:
    Great, now i have to let the installer unpack the files, cancel the installation, go to the extraction folder, delete "DotNet45" folder by hand and re-run setup.exe. Now the installer doesn't have .NET 4.5 to install anymore. Fail AMD, fail...

    For some reason the Amd drag n drop decoder failed to install.
