No gaming on 6956 ??

hi all......

i have been playing around with 6956 for a few hours now, just setting it up, updated the drivers & i finally got round to gaming & i cant game AT ALL...?? they install ok & launch, but just disappear, no error....nothing.

i tried my benchmarks & its the same deal, it just wont render anything complex...??

this will be a real bummer if they never got round to building the necessary parts to game...

so i just need confirmation, has anyone gamed on 6956 yet..?? or been able to run anything more complex than Aero...lol

it just seems like they stopped building under the hood, & kept making the desktop prettier....lol, the default Windows 7 games will run so i know there are drivers installed & the board & card are communicating, but she just wont game!!

ironic really, come's equipped with DX11, for chess & backgammon
