I have a HP EliteBook 8560W notebook with FirePro 5950 graphic card...

I upgraded to Win 8 x64 and photoshop started to fail... with all sort of flickering and bugs...

I tried to upgrade the drivers but it didn't seem to help...

The only solution was to choose the Basic drawing mode or to uncheck the "use graphic processor"

As you can see from this forum  I am not the only one with this problem. Is it going to get fixed or should I change to Nvidia?

Any suggestions?
