I did a test with 10.9 and test with 10.10 and went from 65.7 to 60.2

My setup:
2 5870 crossfire
i7 930 @ 3.8ghz
ddr3 ripjaw 1600mhz
samsung 1tb hd

So what's the deal? I thought this driver was going to increase it?

Edit: I'm trying to reinstall 10.10 but I keep getting an INF error. :??:

Did you try a system reboot and then run Heaven again.
I got strange behavior a couple times with Heaven if I alt tabbed out of it running full screen and then went back in , resumed full screen. Noticed my loading on dual gpu's was less and uneven. This is in a Nvidia SLI setup.
I keep a OSD of the two gpu's and their load #'s in the corner of the screen.
Anyways, by happen chance, it was about 10% less performance.
I was definitely getting the benefit of both gpu's VS just 1, but it was 'off'
Thats not something I would notice in gaming obviously, maybe in another timed/scored benchmark.

Wasn't there a thread ware some fanboys said that such issues with ATI did not exist oh yes that eyefinity guy -.- ware are you now?

The problem is clear and not of your fault so roll back your drivers unless it did improve games that you actually play.

If you've decided to post in the other thread there is no reason for this one to stay up.
