*Sigh* I have a laptop with switchable graphics. (4250/ 6370M) Since these drivers do not support the 4250, I am hoping that AMD will release a driver that will. (I am aware that the dropped mainstream support for the 4250 but still.)

Specifically, I am speaking of Windows 8 support.

Second gpu clock stuck bug is here but no grey screen with hw enabled in firefox (for now). A bit lag in Skyrim with those but no other problems like flickering or something.

I'm in the same boat here. It's sad when a company doesn't support an entire line of graphics chips made by them. I am using a 7670m switchable graphics laptop from 2011 and I have to rely on either a driver more than a year old from Acer or trying my luck with hacked switchable graphics drivers and hoping they work without causing weird problems.

These drivers are a bit different to previous drivers.

First of all, some things are 'missing' in the apps folder, but I'll get to that later. There is a new app called AppEx.

For the actual driver files, there are several new files!
amdh264enc32.dll
amdh264enc64.dll
(AMD H.264 MF Encoder)

amdhwdecoder_32.dll
amdhwdecoder_64.dll
(Accelerated Dx9 Dx11 Async MFT Video Decoder)

So, you can see they replace the necessity for some of the previous apps.

Also:
amdpcom32.dll
amdpcom64.dll
(Radeon PCOM Universal Driver)

I don't use it, nor have I even tried to see whether it works or not, but Steadvideo seems to be selectable now in CCC, and I have an Intel CPU (it was originally restricted to AMD CPU's).

Oh no..

First thing i noticed, was mozilla going black screen, only mozilla, not the whole screen,, so i exited mozilla and tried again.. 10min of browsing and it goes black again, with some flickering here and there

AMD, will they ever make a problem free driver?

Im so fed up with all the blue/black/grey screens now, im about to throw up.

I hear you. I have had 2 sets of drivers that have worked flawlessly, one in January and one in April, 12.4.

I will give these a download anyway, try for myself.
