    Lol. Here I went and selected the 8x (4xSS, 2x MS) AA-mode as I thought it was the best blend between eye-candy and performance. I probably wasn't the only one thinking that SS had less fps-drop then...

    That's not going to save BD unless the kernel does something very stupid when it encounters an unknown AMD cpu.
