I've been having some funky shadows in most unreal engine games and I want to know if the newer radeons still have this issue?

I'm using a Sapphire radeon hd 6850 and this problem has persisted through as many driver updates i've installed before the newest beta, which i'm using at the moment. I've since replaced the core 2 duo I had with a new ivy bridge i7.

Here are links to two videos i've recorded to highlight the problem.

I've owned many radeons, never seen this issue before, perhaps driver related issue? Try a clean driver install, there are many guides in this forum, use search.

I've done plenty of formats since i've noticed this issue. I'l try to do a clean install drivers with the latest if you think it would help. Thinking looking in some other games to see if this is common to ALL UE3 games.

Alright, used that uninstall utility posted in the how-to forums then installed the 13.2 beta 6 drivers and one of the games still has the issue. Haven't checked the others. I'm listing more system specifications for anything else that might affect these games.

OS: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Mobo: ASUS P8Z77-I

PSU: Seasonic G series SSR-550RM

Monitor: Dell ST2410 via HDMI

Applications with the problem: APB Reloaded and The Last Remant

CPU: intel core i7 3770k with default clocks and multipliers

Mobo BIOS version: 0801

RAM: Samsung Low Voltage 2x4 gB PC3 12800 DDR3

Well, I haven't been able to reproduce the issue with my other UE3 based games. I suppose it's an issue with games built with the earlier releases of UE3 since it didn't affect mass effect 1 or 2,  or UT3.
