Hey Guys...

I've read around, and I'm seeing lots of tearing and texture pop in, but my buddy suggests that the issue I am having, is a bit different...

Check out these videos I recorded, not the greatest quality, but the second video it the worse as far as the "issue" goes.

My System:
Intel i7 960 @ 3.33 GHz
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB DDR3
Diamond ATI Radeon 6970 @ 2GB
GIGABYTE G1.Guerrilla Motherboard
Windows Seven Ultimate - 64Bit (Fresh Install)

I've updated the graphics to the "RAGE" release that ATI had yesterday, and nothing. As stated above, this is a fresh install of Windows as of the 1st.

Let me know what you guys think. I know there's a lot of threads around, but like I said, out of all of them, this issues appears, a little different.

Screen tearing/flickering. The RAGE hotfix adds that problem to the texture pop-in. Helluva fix, amirite?

Update to the 11.10 preview drivers. Will fix the tearing/flickering but pop-ins will still be present as that's a game/engine problem.

That looks like artifacting and others are also experiencing it.

See : this image (http://img812.imageshack.us/img812/9969/rage2011100322215294.jpg) from this thread (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2154053), it's #7 filed under "Bugs".

I really hope you're right about the 11.10 driver fixing the flickering problem. I'm running a 6850 and I'm having the exact same flickering issue. I will try this when I get home and report the result.

The game would be really fun if I could find a way to get rid of this flicker. Seems like everybody I have seen with a Radeon 6000 series GPU is having the same issue.

If that doesn't work then roll back to 11.9 or 11.8. But don't use the RAGE hotfix drivers, they're trash.

This is the driver I installed last night, but I think it just made it worse:

The 11.10 drivers, they are:

This one correct?

I have actually tried 11.9 already, I had 11.9 installed before the RAGE version. Same problem. I am still planning on trying 11.10 when I get home.

Same here, I'll try the new ones tonight and report back... But for some reason, I have the feeling of future disappointment.
