    I don't think so. They have just been announced and 12.11 should have been on testing long before that.

    Been searching around the net and there is a thread dedicated to the issue at Guru3D.
    What custom config?
    I have tried removing the skyrim prefs and the other ini along with renderinfo and it did nothing.
    Changed the graphics settings in game, yet still nothing.
    Removed AA and AF, to see if that was the issue.

    I have uninstalled my drivers first through the AMD install manager in control panel, then used driver sweeper in safe mode before each driver install.
    The GPU I have is a Ghz edition and runs at 1010/4840 stock.

    I have never used the CAP profiles.
    Are they necessary for single GPU?

    That's good to hear.

    The only thing which seems to stop the flickering in Skyrim is setting AA to supersample in CCC but the FPS drop is noticeable.

    Cap Profiles from what i understand are good for single cards as well as crossfire.

    I am, same nickname.

    True, but the list is ordened per card series and some users are spread across those series (having multiple cards). I might add a per user sorted klist to the OP later.

    Added.

    True ^.

    Good. I have regarded you as a semi-member already anyway and concerning the WCG team, I would like to see you helping us over the 8.000.000 PPD mark. :)

    When I login into Steam, I think I will add you folks if I think about it (I often forget about the community aspects of Steam, just playing a game, lol).

    Well, some are benching. I will wait with that until I resolved some issues with my system. I will add a Google Docs spreadsheet to the OP later so that we can fill in and compare the results of various benches (most likely 3DMark 11 (being the 3DMark version that will have the most consistent settings across the club), Heaven 3.x and Furmark, maybe some game benches), as well as other stats like driver versions.

    Added.

    Added.

    No worries, probably I will score lower. :)

    That's what I understood as well.

    Of course you're added. :) You qualify at least as much as the others. Oh, and I realised just now that you wrote "throw that up", lol. While there is nothing disgusting here, is there? ;)

    I'm going to see if I can get some vantage scores up.
    Meanwhile, time to enrich my steam contacts list. :D

    I have two 6850s, a reference HIS model and a Visiontek that has a revised power section. Both have BIOSes I modified myself for increased fan speeds and a mild overclock.
    I also have two reference 7970s, one Asus and one Visiontek. Both are flashed to XFX Black Editions. When I want to bench, they get flashed to GHz editions, as that BIOS seems to overclock better than any of the others I've tried.

    Nothing disgusting in here, this place is all goodness and happiness. :lovetpu:
    But I'll admit, "It's a great way to lose pounds before a show." :laugh:

    lol of course the GHz edition clock better they push the GPU vcore up from 1.175 default on reference cards at 925 to a whopping 1.25v when under boost lulz

    Thanks!

    Except that boost doesn't work when the BIOS is flashed to a non-GHz edition card. It is a constant clock and voltage.
    Also, when using other BIOSes i was still raising voltages to the same levels and couldn't achieve the same OCs. The next best overclocking BIOS I found was an Asus BIOS I grabbed from XS.

    I was away this weekend and did not make it to fully prepare for the massmark. I will do so soon, putting a spreadsheet online and guidelines so that it is clear how we will do the massmark.

    I suppose I'd like to sign up! Haven't thought much of it but with these latest drivers it's almost as if I got a free upgrade for my 7970. Which with a 2560x1440 monitor is very welcome! :)

    Oh. Then I think my Mobility Radeon HD 5650 would like to say hello. :)

    The shaders in my APU would so too, but I guess they'll just have to be annoyed by the "No APU's" rule. :p

    I got my Diamond 7970 a few days ago. I had bought and was using 7950's in Crossfire for a week before I bought the 7970 that but I found out the hard way that AMD's drivers for the 7900 cards don't work well with both CrossfireX and Eyefinity at the same time without intermittent crashes. I wish I had read the many forum posts scattered throughout the internet about this before I bought the pair. Anyway, I think I have a pretty good card and I maxed out the CCC memory clock limits on the stock BIOS. I flashed the BIOS to the release BIOS with the very high CCC limits, and I have been running stably at these overclocked settings for two days with no issues. Any higher clocks will cause programs to crash. I was surprised that increasing the voltage doesn't help at all, but after reading others' experiences it seems that this clock wall is not unique.
