    What version are you guys using?
    I installed 11.12 that just came out and found it noticably reduced my performance - On Bf3.
    So I went back on 11.11 and am trying to determine if it's better than 11.10 (my original install that was rock solid, although with minor artifact issues)
    I get around 30-55fps

    Almost never dipping below 30 at 750/900 .995v 11.11
    On 11.12 I would dip to as low as 26fps and never quite reaching mid 50s.

    What are you guys doing on bf3?


    Ps: Vid settings:
    Textures: high
    Shadows: low
    Post AA: high
    Deferred AA: off
    Ambient occlusion: SSAO
    Motion blur: off
    Everything else medium

    1440x900

    I can't for the life of me figure out how to upgrade drivers in bootcamp. Could you tell me how you got it upgraded to 11.12 or whatever it is now?

    There is no straight forward way just google it. There are many tutorials.
    I don't know if it is the same with AMD but with Nvidia drivers you needed a modified inf to install at all. Remove the old driver restart, install the new, restart and hope it works without any problems.

    download drive sweeper. uninstall original boot camp driver (device manager, right click on the video adapter and click uninstall.)
    run drive sweeper.
    Download the latest driver - not the one from AMD but one that's been extracted from their 'shell'. This thread posts them up:

    but as i said, look around the web for 11.11 mobility drivers instead. it's better.
