Have they fixed the Modern UI corruption yet?

The last 12.11 drivers I used made anything MUI all graphics corrupt and unreadable.

7850, Beta 4 drivers made Modern UI unusable, it also affected XBMC. Rolled back to 12.10 and corruption disappeared.

Nope. Was there in Beta 7 and still there in Beta 8

Its the 2D Clocks being too low & too lower voltage to handle it, there are some fixes on Guru3D that require editing your CCC .xml files to bump up the clocks and voltage for 2D

I went back to Windows 7 instead


EDIT - Just noticed the date of post

AMD rocks for hitman absolution. Nvidia has lost out. AMD made a great move by acquiring the graphics ATI company. I like AMD.
