I would retry the 285.62 whql.
Did you install properly
ie: uninstall driver, reboot, cancel driver install, install the new driver, re-install DirectX March09 and June10.
Someone is going to say you only need the latest DX9 which is BULL
depending on what games you actually RUN. sheesh
So take my advice just run both every driver install in order it can't hurt and If you don't you can possibly find a older shooter or sim wont start ....ie: DX /runtime error......................... doh
Oh yeah use 3DMark2006 as a good baseline for performance and image quality between drivers,
if nothing else it makes sure it is running within 0.5%.
Added AMD Tahiti graphics processors family support
Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON 7970 graphics cards with CHL8228 voltage regulators
MSI On-Screen Display server has been upgraded to version 4.3.0. New version gives you the following improvements:
1. Added new profile settings allowing to limit the framerate independently during gaming and during videocapture. Limiting the framerate during gaming can help to reduce the power consumption as well as it can improve gaming experience due to removing unwanted microstutteing effect caused by framerate fluctuations. Limiting the framerate during videocapture can improve resulting video smoothness
2. Added Vector 3D On-Screen Display rendering mode support for OpenGL applications
3. Added Raster 3D On-Screen Display rendering mode support for multithreaded OpenGL applications (e.g. ID Software's Rage)
4. Added workaround for AMD Direct3D driver issues causing OSD to be invisible in Direct3D8 and Direct3D9 applications when using Raster 3D On-Screen Display rendering mode
Now unofficial overclocking can be enabled without typing in the EULA into the configuration file. In this case the EULA is displayed and you're forced to accept it during MSI Afterburner startup
5. Added power user oriented command line switches allowing to extend Overdrive clock limits on AMD graphics cards attached to Windows desktop
