Good. I hope it helps the crashing in Farcry 3. That is the only game that I have any problems with. I can get a solid 60 fps if I cap the frame rate at 60 with RadeoPro, but the hooking it uses causes the game to crash frequently.

It still crashes even without using a hooking program though, so they need to fix that. It seems to have to do with memory allocation.

Got a 7870

Far Cry 3 with max everything - 31 fps (Stationary), before 28 fps.

Will stick with my current settings, Max except AA at 2x at 47fps(Average)

Just for reference: Battlefield 3 Max everything is 50fps(Average)(64 players match)

Good card but dat Far Cry 3 has been my only problem.

So AMD just ditched the 6xxx series?

I downloaded the new beta instead. I hope it brings better performance to far cry 3 because on max with 2xmsaa it stutters occasionally.
