Feedbacks (12/10/13):

1) Crashed a few times with artifacts following afterwards. Never had this issue pre-patch, settings that i've been using for quite a while now (stable).
Could be an instability in the 13.10 Beta2 Drivers
.

2) Performance increase by a tad bit. EDIT: Not just a tad bit, i would say about 25% performance increase[/b]. Keep rolling them in!

3) FPS dropping below 10 during load screen plus stuttering music seems to be gone. Good job!

Processor: Intel Core i5 3470 @3.6Ghz

You'll need to set graphics to "Extra Low"

Still stuttering in full screen. The beta is completely playable on LOW-MED in borderless/windowed. HIGH-ULTRA settings causes some stuttering and a bit disappointing FPS. At least in full screen there are still problems and in borderless/windowed you can't ALT+TAB or go to Windows anyhow.

What I found is don't trust the driver install to do a full clean install lol Go into add and remove programs do it yourself and reboot then install new driver.
