    Thumbs up GCN Based (HD7XXX) Gets Up To 15% Performance Gains From Drivers!

    As some of you might be well aware of this by now, the reason why I opened this thread is because I haven't seen this being discussed in the forums much, and I thought this deserved it's own thread.


    As unbelievable it may seem, but the AMD driver team has finally pulled off what I call is the biggest upset ever in the graphics card industry by releasing a set of drivers which is still in it's beta stages, that shows performance gains that has never been seen before from just tweaking drivers!


    Not only does this new set of drivers, AMD Catalyst 12.11 aka the Never Settle Drivers is what they're calling it shows improvements across most of the recent game titles, but it fixes numerous bugs too, like the low performance scenario from Dragon Age 2.


    The only downside of what I see from this driver release is that only the GCN based hardware sees improvements, so if you don't own a HD7XXX graphics card, in no ways you'll be benefitted from this.


    Here are some of the reviews that might interest you:

    This 12.11 beta4 driver contains "Idle bug" which is a common issue of AMD drivers. Currently most stable version is 12.10 WHQL.

    ^ and some other minor issues in some games. I'l be on the safe side and wait for the WHQL version. The FPS increase in different games looks very tempting nevertheless.
