    I was trying to show greasemonkey that the link to the 8.8 was working for me.I could have clicked it and opened in a new tab,but i wanted to show the tpu page in the background.Maybe i should have elaborated a bit more.

    After someones comment about trying to prove myself an idiot,which i thought was directed at me,i deleted the post.

    I am in the process of doing a comparison between the 8.7 and 8.8 drivers with my 4850 (board isn't posting with both of them so single card for now) and my 3870x2, might be a while for full results, but I will keep this post updated as I finish them. For simplicity, I will be running all benchmarks with the cards overclocked.

    EDIT: I am going to post screen shots of benches after I run them.

    8.8 Vantage 4850

    8.8 06 4850
    [​IMG]

    8.8 Fur 4850 I had to swap out my 4850's, I think the other one is going bad, so I will reistall the 8.7 drivers with this card and compare to see if the significan loss here is driver or hardware related.

    No powerplay fix, maybe more stable than beta, haven't tested performance yet.
