    It might sound weird, but I have to underclock or I get a ton of black screens/hard crashes. When I installed the new driver it put my MSI afterburner settings back to default, once I underclocked it again my problems went away. I installed the previous driver and still had problems until I underclocked.

    That's not weird at all actually. CCC should have a activity/temp monitor keep an eye on it if you OC again.

    Anyone confirm an increase in performance?

    Does driver design depend on information from the developer or do they just make drivers as they see fit?

    I don't OC it at all, this is underclocked from default settings. Temp is fine.

    Well, that certainly does suck right there.

    Back to learning how to play FPSers.

    Some of us have no trouble whatsoever on Ilum or on the fleet and run on ATI cards with ATI drivers. Constant 111 FPS

    I run 2 6950's on a 2600k, never dipped under 100 fps

    I dont have any big problems right now. So ill stick to my "if it ain't broken, dont fix it". Im afraid its more likely to screw things up then add anything noticeable.

    I don't have any lags (the only time it was slow, was in Illum with 2x raids or even more vs each other), but ingame AA just won't work for me and I have to sit with forced AA all the time.

    may I ask what kind of system do you have dude?
    I got an i52500k OC at 4.3 Ghz, a Sapphire 6970 and I can't get more than 30 fps on the fleet when crowded .
    editntopic I updated to 12.2 preview drivers, game works fine, well fine as in as usual.

    I upgraded on Monday due to some pretty bad problems I was having not only in SWTOR but in other games as well (WoW and Rift to be specific). I had been using the drivers from November (at least I remember downloading around Thanksgiving). Since I began playing SWTOR I had frequently had problems going upwards of 2500+ when going into combat. I will say, since installing the latest I have noticed this doesn't happen quite as often. I also lowered my settings just a bit and things seem to be running a lot smoother. I have a HD 5760 that came with my computer that I think I bought about 18 months ago or so. My FPS is around the 30-40 mark pretty much everywhere (IF, Krass, out questing).

    Ya I installed them and they seem to work great, no problems, no more tearing no more random green lights or balck screens. Ran the card set to max graphics in a 16 man op and also had no issues there

    I installed them yesterday and the game started to crash in flashpoints. I also had visual stutters. I rolled back the drivers and it is stable again.

    Updated as soon as it came out. Game keeps rolling well as it did before.

    there are problems with graphics in this game? I have an ATI 6870 and running everything on max I'm getting steady 60fps at 1080p, not sure what a driver update is supposed to fix...

    GEach update will have a bulk load of minor fixes or even major fixes designed to increase performance for particular applications. That doesn't mean a driver update will have necessary changes for the application you want it too as any graphics company is limited by the developers that send them the necessary information to make adjustments to their drivers for optimal performance.

    Yes, it is possible that new drivers will have a negative impact on particular games but if that is the case you can always run a system restore to a time prior to the driver update.

    The 12.1 driver improved a lot with the game, I've been using it since the preview driver came out.

    Question. Should I update my 12.1 preview driver?

    Yes. Several bugs with the preview one that were fixed, like allowing overscan to be saved.
