  • Improves performance in Battlefield 3 Open Beta release for both non-Anti-Aliasing, and application enabled Anti-Aliasing cases on CrossFire configurations using the AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 and AMD Radeon™ HD 5000 Series
  • Enables support for Eyefinity 5x1 display (portrait and landscape) configurations using the AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 and AMD Radeon™ HD 5000 Series
  • Vision Engine Control Center: User Interface enhancements have been implemented for the CrossfireX, GPU Overdrive, and Information Center pages.

My performance in BF3 beta is pretty good without these drivers so I don't know if I should update them just yet.

I suppose. I'm running them just fine, my tags don't disappear unless the teammates are far enough away to only have the triangle icon. And my performance was solid for most of it though I had lag issues after an hour of play that I didn't have time to ascertain whether they were server related or video related. Could be video, if so I'll just roll back. Worked fine for me with the older drivers too.

I was merely just pointing out they aren't ready for primetime, to see some people have no issues and others have problems certainly isn't surprising. I'm sure thats how AMD expected things to go.

For me there seems to be a very slight, or possibly psychosomatic, difference in frame rate. That's about it.

Hopefully this resolves some of the screen flashing issues. The beta runs well as it is, but there are some obvious issues that need immediate attention.

Wow these are some amazing optimized drivers. Team/enemy tags disappear entirely, and performance takes a huge dump every minute or so. Good job, AMD.

And that's why they are beta drivers.
