Same problem.
7970 GHz edition
Win7 64bit

And no, I refuse to install the beta drivers. I also play other games and don't feel adventurous atm. Good luck fixing it!

and i dont blame them for not wanting to.

Riot cannot tell the community to upgrade your drivers as a solution to the problem and sweep it under the rug. This is an issue brought upon us with this patch.

I understand it is your job to know the ins and outs of a computer, but i dont care how much you know about computers.

League before patch = perfectly fine
League after patch = getting this issue

that is all the evidence you need to place blame on them. Which is why riot should and is investigating a solution to this problem.

thank you and have a nice day.

i really dont understand why you have to be such a ***** to these people because they dont want to update their drivers to beta.

it is a calculated risk and while you may be willing to take it, some people aren't. that includes some people who are tech savvy and other who don't know much.
EternalStealth, here is the problem. You have a graphics card built by AMD that is utilizing the PCIe 3.0 architecture. You have a motherboard that does not have a PCIe 3.0 slot. Instead you are using a PCIe 2.0 or 2.1 slot. Are you with me so far?

The AMD drivers, are causing issues with backward compatibility. Riot is a video game manufacture that creates a game that SHOULD be playable on a computer that meets the minimum system requirements.

You are trying to use logic to place blame on Riot with

League before patch = perfectly fine
League after patch = getting this issue

This is a logic fallacy. Correlation is not causation my friend. it is people like you who exhibit persistent obstinence in laying the blame on Riot instead of accepting that the video card drivers that you are using are the root cause.

Before update to beta drivers = graphical glitches
After updating to beta drivers = no graphical glitches.

I have responded to you before with your 3 options if you do not want to use beta drivers. Buy a new motherboard that has a PCIe 3.0 slot, get a graphics card that uses the PCIe 2.0/2.1 architecture, or stop playing LOL. You continue to complain instead of fix the problem that lies INSIDE YOUR COMPUTER

It's... an option to just wait for AMD to fully release the drivers that will fix this, waiting for them to come out of beta, right? I feel like you missed an important option.

I also have an ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 Mobo, with an HD7950. I have the problem too.

Any word on a fix coming soon? Pretty much holding off until this is fixed. I know it may not look like much, but man it is distracting at times.

Go to AMD website and update driver for your video card.
I just updated to beta driver 12.11 and it immediately fixed the problem.
This may have been caused by riot updating graphics but as far as myself and my friends who only run AMD.

I personally found that updating to beta driver 12.11 fixed the screen tearing.

I am running Radeon HD over clocked 7850 by Saphire Dual X. Windows 7 32 bit.

Here is the link to the driver.
http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...w_vista32.aspx

Latest Beta Driver 182 MB 12.11 Beta 12/3/2012 Download
Description:
Download our latest beta driver and get a preview of what we're currently working on.
Note! This driver is provided "AS IS" and under the terms and conditions of the End User License Agreement provided therewithin.
Please note that the Catalyst Control Center component of the AMD Catalyst 12.9 Beta requires .NET 4.0 support.

I hope this helps!

P.S Help full steps for installing new driver:

1. First download the driver.
2. Next locate driver folder and select uninstall old driver through advanced settings tab.
3. Restart computer
4. Install new driver which should be located in your download folder
5 You will be prompted to restart, After restart enjoy playing League without tearing

Good luck!
I did this, and it worked for me, so thanks .
