    BEST DRIVER EVER meanwhile!
    I can confirm the OpenGL is working correctly.
    Finally, I can have my Autodesk Maya works better.

    So will the 11.8 official driver next week be older or newer than this one?

    I guess the officials will be older like last time or even a different development branch maybe.

    Wasn't 11.7 WHQL practically a rebadged 11.7 Preview?
    And also the case with 11.6 WHQL before it?

    Not much of an issue but OpenGL version is still reported as 4.1 in various tools. I suppose they support 4.2 but isn't actually certified as 4.2 (or something like that).

    EDIT: Ah, they're not really telling the truth according to OpenGL Extension Viewer:

    [​IMG]

    Full Support isn't the same as 50% support. :/

    Or the install of the 11.8p2 wasn't complete. I'll uninstall, Sweep and reinstall.

    EDIT 2: Nope, still same thing, 4.2 is only 50% implemented.

    Does the new CCC still cause crashes/BSOD?

    Not to me, I had atikmpag.sys BSOD's (Were caused randomly, maybe because of CCC, maybe not) from 11.5 to 11.7 (It ended with 11.7).

    No problems right now with these.

    no problems here with this driver , same as all the other ones , it just works and with no uninstall or anything , just slapped them on top of the 11.8 preview that were already slapped on top of the 11.7 that were slapped on top of 11.6... and so on.

    i dont know how so many people have so many problems changing drivers , the installer works wonderfuly with no rebbots or uninstalls.

    Heh, they don't even properly support ARB_shader_atomic_counters they claimed they do.
    AMD is getting to be more like spin doctors rather than innovators these days.

    Or OpenGL viewer could be out of date, not the first time a program has mis-reported something

    Something is wrong, at least one of the mentioned extension wasn't detected. 2 others are slightly different named.

    I want to correct my own statements regarding 4.2 compliance.

    Here's what I got from my system.

    [​IMG]

    The reason why Scyphe's screenshot has only 50% 4.2 compliance was probably because he used the 4.1 context; see the difference on the top bar to the right of the 'Home' icon.
    Only the shader version that isn't reported as 4.2, but 4.1.
