So, wow. I've been getting crazy graphics corruption frequently when at desktop//browsing (never when gaming though lmao?) and VARIOUS blue screens of DEATH when using 12.1 preview driver.

I mean this thing is cataclysmically destructive. It's completely messing my entire system up.

Going back to 11.11c as I have no choice in the matter since 11.12 doesn't even include the 11.11c fixes.

Sigh...  anyone else pissed off? is 12.1 nuking anyone else's comp?

Considering it is a PREVIEW DRIVER and has not been WHQL certified who would have thought there might be problems...

Funny you should say that, considered it is "RECOMMENDED" over 11.12 because 11.12 does NOT come with 11.11c fixes.

Read it yourself in the notes at the very top of the very first page.

Just sayin, 12.1 messed my comp up badly. I might even need to reformat.

God damnit, I hate bad drivers.
