Have you noticed any micro stuttering with the 13.10 Beta or this Current set of drivers? I see micro stutters in 3D Mark 11, Deus Ex Human Revolution, even in Furmark!

Hey LeekM do you tried these drivers on Windows 7, 8, 8.1?
Very interesting result, have you tried with a realm reborn benchmark or other game?
Do you find any issue with these drivers?
Which version of intel driver are you using?

Thanks in advance.

AMD posted Catalyst 13.9 software suite, which is logo-certified (not to be confused with WHQL-certified) for Windows 8.1, and Catalyst 13.10 Beta for everyone else. Catalyst 13.9 Windows 8.1 driver is logo-certified (i.e., it complies with the newest Windows Display Driver Model 1.3), yet the it isn't quite WHQL-certified. You're at the very least assured that the driver will make your hardware work on Windows 8.1, and support Direct3D 11.1 on compatible Radeon HD 7000 series, HD 8000 (OEM) series, and the upcoming Rx 2xx series hardware. Direct3D 11.1 should get its first major outing with Battlefield 4.

Catalyst 13.9 for Windows 8.1 supports all AMD Radeon GPU families since HD 5000 series, and integrated graphics for all APUs AMD ever sold. The new Catalyst Control Center requires .NET 4.5 runtime environment. Moving on, Catalyst 13.10 Beta is being released to users on older operating systems. It brings game-specific performance improvements, including 20% performance scaling on Rome Total War 2 for CrossFire setups and display corruption issues associated with it; 20% performance scaling on Saints Row 4 for CrossFire setups; and 10% performance scaling on Metro: Last Light for CrossFire setups. Frame-pacing (fluidity) is improved for six games, including Tomb Raider (2013), Metro: Last Light, Sniper Elite V2, World of Warcraft, Max Payne 3, and Hitman: Absolution. The driver also fixes a bug that spools down PCIe link speeds of secondary graphics cards in CrossFire setups down to x1, when idling.

Ahhh, no wonder the Mobility driver didn't work right in Win 7. I went back to 13.4 WHQL and all is well.

I have no idea what "logo certified" means. Reading from Wikipedia about WHQL, I see "Products that pass the WHQL tests get to use a "Certified for Windows" logotype", which is the same thing.

No it isn't, this is a different driver, as the 13.8 beta 2 contained the frame-pacing, which this one doesn't have
