    I know that. But I had to try.

    Yep, they just lost a customer.

    WTF! norton quarantined atiumdag.dll during installation "atiumdag.dll contained threat Suspicious.Cloud.7.F" btw - I downloaded the 12.6 beta directly from AMD's website.

    i recovered the .dll from quarantine but it put it the wrong location, where does it belong?


    here come the "don't use norton" jokes.... :)

    I did a clean install by removing existing drivers from control panel and running driver sweeper after a reboot. I downloaded 12.6 and ran it but I cannot get overscan and eyefinnity in the settings.

    When I uninstalled my 12.3 driver the screen went black and never recovered after 5 minutes, so I restarted do you think that is the problem? When that happened I continued to uninstall 12.3 from control panel and ran driver sweeper.

    This is the 3rd time I've tried to install 12.6 but I just can't get those to show where other people can.:bang:

    Guess when this was stated it was never meant to be honored:

    "The reason for the shift in support policy is largely due to the fact that the Radeon HD 2000, HD 3000, and HD 4000 Series have been optimized to their maximum potential from a performance and feature perspective. The 8.97-based driver, to be released in May, will be the first driver for the Radeon HD 2000, HD 3000, and HD 4000 Series under the new support model. According to AMD, it is an extremely stable and robust driver branch for these products and will be the baseline for the quarterly updates. In an effort to optimize the Radeon HD 5000 and newer cards, AMD states this move is the best use of its resources, as the Radeon HD 5000, Radeon HD 6000, Radeon HD 7000, and future products have the greatest potential for further performance and feature enhancements."

    No more monthly updates for any card; all fine and good. Legacy support just took a back hand to the face.

    Yes lets all laugh at the poor bastard and the hundreds of thousands of other people who are laptop bound and can't afford to finance a good desktop rig.

    Here's how I see it: AMD are basically saying, "you are now paying for our drivers" - well it's seems that way since "Nvidia" support their cards back to 6xxx and are still able to produce good drivers.

    I'm hoping someone in the modding community will pick up the slack since AMD have now officially turned into sellouts.

    Yeah they say that, but it makes me wonder just how full of **** they are.

    I think it's just because they get too many complaints from their customers about **** drivers, and "DX11" is becoming more of an industry standard.

    Stop forcing a manual overclock via Afterburner or somesuch
    Update Adobe Flash Player and Java
    Update Mozilla Firefox
    Disable Flash Player Hardware Acceleration (Right click FLash video before it plays, click Properties)

    Ok am now thinking going back 12.4, This overscan reset is doing my head in. Before I do am willing to give this driver one more install. Whats the best way to removing Amd completely from my system? I normally would un-install from control panel and then restart and run driver sweeper and restart, then install Amd driver and resart once more and then setup settings?

    Is atiman better at doing its job than driver sweeper?
    Anyone else here using a 7950 and dont have there overscan resetting on system restart?

    Thanks guys

    Edit apart from that driver is great on BF3 noticed much smoother gameplay.

    My whole point was that 8.97 was to be the corner stone of the quarterly updates. It has yet to be released. Starting off with a shotty foundation is not a good thing. Then eveyone else stating how good of a move this recent news is: Horse Hockey. Marketing bs is marketing bs. Mythbusters might have proved you could polish a turd but **** is still ****.

    If a company can not be trusted with their public statements, bit naive, then what does this say about any further utterings vomitted out to their customers?

    i think we have the same problem. I even tried installing 12.4 and then installing 12.6 over it without running driver sweeper and uninstalling the previous driver and it still did not show.
