From 3.7 to 3.8 Lost a small amount on 3dmark scores from 12400 to 12333 no biggie but the problem is that certain textures now flicker a triangle anomalie near the beach heads & over certain small lakes with the white foam

its very ugly going back to 3.7

Me too I think! Just going to try a few fiddles tonight but I'm not optmistic. These are the first ATI drivers I've had that have made things worse!

I'd never join a club that would have ME as a member!!.

ELEM, you readed my mind. First ATI drivers a lot worse than the old ones.
Switch back to Omega 3.7 and I´m happy again.
3.8 are slooooow on perfect mode. Nearly a slide show for me, compared with the smoothness of 3.7

Besides the 3.8 doenst seem to repair mirrors on S3TC (I readed somewhere that maybe is a FB problem, not drivers) and "grided" shore lines when look very close in Perfect Mode.

ATI, no luck this time.

I get the flickering triangles near water as well.

Plus a whole slew of new problems when installing for dual displays.

To install the Omega 3.7, you need the ATI control panel too?

I got the triangles too but worse than you I think. I was hoping for a fix of the mirrors on S3TC but no luck. My dual displays install was a nightmare as well. i think I may need the ATI control panel too.
