I also would like your thoughts on what Bond007 discussed above. I also noticed that huge uncharacteristic slump in Metro Last Light, I knew a while back AMD with new a driver release had Metro functioning on par with Nvidia? It almost looks as though some patch A4 Games killed AMD offering some erroneous results (today), I'm not sure it should be published as dependable data.
I can say 100% it isn't a patch but rather AMD's latest drivers in Windows 8.1. Look through previous reviews...it never happened. Ever since we switched to Omega, that's what happened.
