wouldnt the games it's played on have to be more compatible to the new 7.11 driver to get better performance? Maybe the games that r played dont recognize it as well as 7.10, so the games need better patches or something.

im just speculating........

aw, they'll squeeze more. My X1950XT still gets a performance nudge from some of the latest drivers. The 3870/3850 will continue to improve for a bit.

Usually drivers help performance.... ****, the 7.11 update still didn't even include the Crysis hotfix. It's a joke.

And yes, I've owned the x1950xt for awhile, but the performance increases I've seen through new driver updates are minimal at best. Mostly, it just affects stability and not adding many more frames to a game.
