    Default RAGE M18x Discussion thread

    There is a new performance driver package from AMD specifically for rage, no version numbers given

    Here is the link.

    I am going to give the driver a try but I don't have the game.

    How does it run? May try it as the 11.10 preview is buggy and no brightness controls..

    Hi Guys

    This is my first post as I am another proud Australian owner of a M18x that I absolutely love. The reason I chose this rig was largely due this forum and community spirit that is shown here. (Also the lights, I just love them)

    This driver works perfect on my machine with crossfire 6990m's so far.

    It also in conjunction with forcing vertical sync has resolved all my Rage issues and the game now works flawlessly.

    This is my first laptop so I am no expert but thought I would share my results in case it helped

    Cheers

    Thats good to know, so RAGE owners can use this driver. Not sure how this works with BF3 beta.

    I am still unable to restart my system just yet. Might try it out later in the night.

    Welcome aboard! Enjoy da beast!

    Funny, it only took AMD a few days to offer a proper fix for RAGE and many have already changed their mind about the REDs, hehe. Have faith, my fellow Radeonians! Have faith!

    Yeah I never subscribed to this view that AMD drivers being poor or bad in terms of delivering performance fixes in a timely manner. Its seems to be FUD spread by Nvidia Google Page Ranking dept way back in the day which is now simply being carried over as folk lore.
