I have been having issues with the fonts on windows 8 start apps right from the time I started using AMD drivers for my Radeon HD 7650M graphics card (from ccc v12.6 to v13.1). It seems the issue has still not been addressed with the latest release of drivers this January. I also have the same problems with in-game fonts. I have attached a pic for your consideration. weird font rendering

Edit: I have not had any issue with the Microsoft drivers that were supplied with the Windows 8 installation. But they suck in performance. isgust;

Those are usually symptoms of a monitor that is not in it's native (and optimum) resolution/refresh rate.

I have double checked and my monitor is working at its native resolution and refresh rate. What makes me wonder is that I have not had any such issue with the Microsoft drivers. :confused:

Here's another pic which clearly shows the weird fonts rendering.
