    You need to uninstall CCC

    If you can't uninstall it, download Microsoft Fixit and run it, select Catalyst Control Center, uninstall it, then reboot, run the ATI install package driver, install CCC, reboot, you'll have CCC back

    I have tried so many beta drivers in the past, never has this occurred to me. It's only after i installed these 8.93(Nov 29) that i have getting yellow error signs after installation. Seems like some files are not getting removed properly..

    These 8.93 drivers are quickly separating the men from the boys... If you don't know much about computers, please stick to AMD's official drivers. It will save you a lot of trouble

    It's still there but uninstalling from the device manager seems to solve it...:)

    Works fine for me on Dota 2 and Skyrim on a single-GPU 5570 setup :)

    Gave me more stuttering in Skyrim than with 11.11b. Going to uninstall these and try out 11.11c

    So, how should the CAP's be installed? Should I install the latest from AMD's site? The 1's bundled with the driver? Or not at all? Or is this something I'd have to manually go find out by testing :p

    You're catching on quite fast. :p

    In any case, you should try with no CAP at all, then test the CAPs later on; you could run Setup.exe again to install the CAP included in this driver.
    What works on someone else's system would probably not work (the same) on yours.
    And what with the 'experimental' nature of this driver, lower your expectations.

    These drivers do not work with eyefinity, they stretch out the center monitor in the display group so that the bezel compensation bar is 2/3 of the way on the right screen, and what should be the right hand side of the right screen is seen on the left hand side of the right screen - headache even describing it. Too bad, I was looking forward to testing these.

    Getting this in L4D2, only game that does it, seems like a problem with the drivers

    I go back to the drivers on the 3rd or 11.10's and it stops

    Getting this with 11.11c's as well

    EDIT: Seems that with the 11.11c and the 12.01RC1 drivers AMD has introduced tweaks for L4D2 and L4D2 alone, I don't see these issues in other games like TF2 or L4D1, and I see in the patch notes that L4D2 got paid attention too in this driver, so I think they messed something up

    EDIT2: Video of it in action, looks like when they tweaked the shaders for L4D2 in the drivers it doesn't know how to handle pure white

    EDIT3: Fixed it with 11.11c by verifying the game files, so it probably applies to this driver as well.

    ^Same thing for me. Especially when trying to play cryostasis, I have lots of a graphical problem around lights. ;/

    I tried it with 11.11c and it introduced flickering and didn't seem as smooth as using 11.11c with CCaps v1.1 without using 4gb fix.

    When using a shotgun with frag rounds in BF3, you get a blue flash when firing the gun with these drivers. Anyone else confirm this on their side?

    Nope. I don't get that happening.
