We can now overclock with multi-screens setup. Awesome! I hope the "big mouse issue" is fixed too !

Is there any detail about result in game and such thing + which bug are clean???

Behemoth- May 26, 2010 06:47 PM

Well... few hours later, no big mouse yet ! Seems like they fixed it! I'dd say good job ATi if the card was newly released -.- Anyway, this makes me feel better about this purchase. Overclocked 900/1300 and it's all stable, I'm going to push it some more.

any notable gaming performance increases?

Delavan May 27, 2010 04:28 AM

In BC2, I noticed faster loading times, but I didn't have the extra long loading times issue in the first place.
Still, it's a gain.

But I still have the issue (BC2) with snowflakes turning into a "black-white checkered pixel" on Nelson bay and White pass (both the winter maps) when you look at a snow bank and a snowflake passes between me and the ground. It doesn't do it with all snowflakes, and it's not ruining the game, but I had hopes they could fix that, especially when they advertise Bad Company 2 fixes...

I get around 500 extra points on 3Dmarks06.
Gaming performance increase is hard to notice.

On that note, does it makes sense to update OpenGL (March 2010 version) drivers also? Because It used to be a big deal back in the day, but nowadays not sure.
As I use only my computer for gaming, is there still some games coming out making use of OpenGL?
