    I have the .exe for furmark renamed to FuzzyDonutTest.exe.

    with cat9.6 I was getting around 7000 o3marks, now with 9.7 its down to 4200 o3marks WTF...

    settings used for both tests were: 1440x900, NO AA, 60second test.

    min FPS is down to 66 for me... max FPS used to be 166 now its 104.

    Thanks for the tip but I already tried this trick and still show low fps, can someone test with his 4890card just to make sure it is driver problem?

    + they havent fixed Company of heroes graphics glitches. I m still getting black screen in COH after playing it for few mins. I went back to 9.5 and its working fine now. Same glitch was with 9.6 drivers. I thought 9.7 would fix this glitch but no, it still sucks!
