    ok these are awesome in starcraft II.


    what used to be about a 10 second alt tab time is not literally instant - its faster than alt tabbing between two web browser windows.


    something in the alt tab behaviour for SCII at least has changed, and its awesome.

    Well after a clean install I managed to get this! AMD is doing a great job with this 14.2 b1.4 MANTLE driver IMO! all my mark have gone up a tad.

    Strangely enough in game I get worse performance with this driver in Thief, a game they claim has better performance with it. Put 13.12 back in and it's playing fine. Seems their betas are not what they used to be.

    Same here on my wife's system (760K OC / HD7850).

    13.12 - 36FPS
    14.2 - 32FPS & lots of stutter.

    The driver also "lost" my Eyefinity profile....

    I havn't had a chance to play anything else but Thief at least isn't seeing the performance improvements it should be on this system.
