    hi, i've recently started using the CCC settings to get better image quality. i was actually surprised how much of a difference it made vs in-game ultra settings. anyways, i've noticed that sometimes after i enable my profile, things seem to lag; it is not because of the settings i choose, as it does run smoothly in some games. at first i thought that it was b/c i didn't have the Catalyst AI enabled - this actually seemed to be the problem. now, however, even with the AI enabled and set to the advanced setting, things still seem to stutter at times. the best example i have is with ATITool:

    before i started using CCC, i would check the '3D view' every once in a while and it would display anywhere from 550-640 fps.

    after i started using CCC, and enabled my settings, i would get b/w 110-190 fps on the cube.

    at first i disregarded this and tried started Titan Quest, and EVERYTHING was lagging...i found that odd but just restarted the game and it was later fine with amazing IQ. i then exited and checked ATITool's cube again and it was back to 550-640 fps.

    i am just a little frustrated as i cant seem to find the cause of the problem. the version of CCC i am using are the ones which came on my ASUS CD. i believe they are a modified version of the 6.10. is this an known issue with these set of drivers or am i just overlooking something?

    thanks in advance for any helpful advice :)

    actually, no i haven't. is there a significant difference b/w the version i'm using and the 6.12s? the version i am currently using is great...when it actually works properly. i was hoping not needing to install the 6.12s. unless there is another solution, i might actually have to do that. i hate the uninstallation/reinstallation of drivers. thanks for the reply :)
