    Need for Speed carbon's performance was worse, random slowdowns and Floating point HDR Motion blur artifacts.... 7.6's do MUCH better. Like in NFS:C the performance has decreased by like 30% or something. Its WORSE with world detail on max... this driver is like the 7.2s..

    Done it tried it and back to 7.6.
    And yeah Carbon turned to crap on the 7.7 driver and I play that game a fair bit so I do notice it.

    Watch out for the stutters around the concealed corners or places where there is alot of textures.

    I think this driver was supposed more directed at the HD2xxx series than X1xxx from what I read about it.

    Well for me an my xp x64 install, trying to upgrade the drivers lead to an unrecoverable setup. I actually had to reformat from trying drivers (yeah I tried driver cleaner pro, installing via ini, reinstalling older drivers, none of those worked). So I reformat and install the newer drivers and they work fine (wtf?).

    For me, my 3DMark06 score went up to around 1.5k from about 1.4k and in Halo 2 XP, my performance at 1280x720 is better with 2x AA than before (although I get more stutters than before, but they are very brief).

    I've noticed some squirrelly stuff with the 7.7 drivers, too . . . Doom3 doesn't seem to keep my AA settings, it keeps reseting to 'off' every time I load it up.

    I'm curious, though, to see if there will be a difference for me with 3Dmark06 between 7.7 & 7.6 - seeing as how I'm about to rollback the drivers, I might just benchmark my system . . .

    >.> i'm pretty sure that 7.7 was optimized for the upcoming dx10 games.... that's why lost planet demo works now
