Black flickering - Not observed in quick, but intensive 30 minute gameplay
Black flickerspot - nothing at all
White flickerspot - fixed previously (2 hours ago). vcredist packages removed, last WHQL reinstalled. 13.2beta 3 installed. and white flickerspot is clear
"Facial flicker" also known as "skin flicker" when game character fades out/in. Still present
Witcher 2 EE:
No type of flickering observed. (black, white, transparency)
Flickering which was observed is also present with different cards.
World of Tanks:
No flickering observed yet. "Battle starts" however is still blinking. Have to re-test with different GPU.
To be tested:
I will keep my final verdict to the future, but... the main problem seems to be fixed.
Civilization 4 and Skyrim's "Black flickerspot" were the most persistent and most easy to reproduce DirectX 9.0c texture flickering issues.
White flickering remained as secondary problem since 12.11 beta. In my case i believe that it was caused by messed vcredist installations.
The "facial flicker" in skyrim is surely related exclusively to HD 7000 series or any AMD GPU with GCN architecture. It changed a lot with the new driver, but its still there.
