It takes then 2 version (6 months)

6 months?
11.5 = May 2011
11.6 = June 2011
11.7 = July 2011
11.9 = September 2011

Ok sorry 4 months.  Is that better?  I mean AMD has a broken driver for what feels like forever.  The problem isn't subtle.  The 100% CPU bug affect AMD own examples in their SDK.

I mean it is impossible not to replicate it.
1) Install 2+ GPU
2) Run AMD own example.
3) Verify 100% CPU bug.

Despite that AMD doesn't fix it and then breaks it further so it ALSO affects single GPU.  They finally fix that 4 months later and the fix is limited to single GPU only. AMD can't even confirm if they are working on a fix or that they have verified a problem exists.

Well that is exactly the reason I always buy Nvidia graphics. ATI = crap drivers for ever left unfixed. Too bad Nvidia cannot recognize our movement and come out with the appropriate solution Sad

I have some hope they will in the future. GPGPU is starting to catch on and NVidia subpar integer performance is a flaw in their design.  As GPGPU becomes more mainstream (especially in enterprise space) NVidia will need to improve integer performance or risk losing GPGPU marketshare.
