I've noticed good news - bad news. The good news is that the texture flashing in perfect mode is finally gone. The bad news is that framerate took a 20% hit.

What framerate hit? Its as good as the old 4.1's were if not better for Perfect mode. Someone probably didn't install them properly.

The 4.7 beta and the 4.7 retail are about the same performance wise in Perfect mode too but the retail seems smoother and doesn't give me video corruption problems.

I understand there were actually 2 betas, 4.7a and 4.7b and they were quite different speed wise. The final version 4.7(omega) is probably the slower of the two. No matter, ATI will have a new driver out in a month anyway.
