I get black spots on the rocks on the research demo using a 9800pro. I previously had a 9500 pro and the demo looked perfect, but since I installed the 9800pro the problems started. I used driver cleaner before switching cards and have uninstalled and reinstalled the game, tried various video settings, etc. with no help. Anyone know of a fix?

Also have the 9800 Pro, same problem with black spots on the rocks. Tried changing enviroment settings, texture quality and so on.
All it does now is crash, have to reboot.
Any suggestion would be much appreciated.

I had tried turning AA and AF off, didn't work. I did get the problem fixed finally. Installed the latest Omega drivers (not sure if this made a difference) and problem was still there, then went into D3D properties and hit the default settings button. This seemes to have worked, black spots gone. Now getting about 60-75 fps average with a mix between high ang medium video settings.
