    hope they better than the 11.8 previews, cos they sucked for DIRT3 (at least pre 1.2 update edition, haven't tested since then)

    11.8 plus the latest cap package and dirt3 is fine here, good boost in perf in most of my games. Had my first BSOD with these though while waking from sleep. I would follow my own advice with bsods but to be frankly honest I really can't be bothered at the moment :D

    Good to hear, just for some reason I found 11.7 and 11.8 preview dropped about 20-30fps which is very noticable even on a fast rig, recently rolled back to 11.6b v2 (fastest previous drivers I find). Will test whql 11.8 maybe later and report findings.

    Good news, the 11.8 whql does indeed fix the DIRT3 FPS dropping glitch
