Catalyst 10.7 - Borderlands improvements. Hey ATI, crashes aren't an improvement!

  1. Just a quick note for anyone who might be trying to play this game with the latest Catalyst drivers. Don't. Performance is nice but there is a memory leak somewhere and the game crashes between 15-30 mins after you start playing. Symptoms are similar to those you might see from overheating issues. Occasional pauses in the display, stuttering and then a lockup. Ctrl alt del doesn't work, have to hard reboot the machine.

    Fix: Role the drivers back to 10.6. Works without problem crashes. Just annoying if you happen to playing SC2 and Borderlands. Lose the AA goodness in SC2 and not have the menu screen toasting your graphics card, or only be able to play Borderlands for 15-30 mins at a time....
