    Have you tried removing ALL AMD/ATI drivers and CAPS then running a driver cleaner?

    Sometimes left over files from previous versions when there is a big change in the driver, CAN create unwanted issues.

    It happened on Windows 7 as well with the June (initial 9.00) driver, and I did the whole atiman (did driver sweeper too), safe mode, etc etc thing back then, didn't help 1 bit. Same thing happened. Starting to thing the video bios is the issue or from now on AMD hates me.

    So, that main page mentions improved performance for certain games with tir/quad-crossfire modes. Does anyone know if that's a profile-based thing or a genuine improvement in driver behaviour?

    Obviously I'll test and let everyone know, but I'll be surprised if they're better than the 8.96 Feb 14 drivers. They've been hard to top.

    Yeah 5fps more is considered a lot to some as it could mean the difference between playable and unplayable for some with lower end cards. But if your already pulling in playable frame rates then having a few more your not really going to notice it much are you. Well at least not for me anyways as I generally cap my fps in BF3 to 45 as this is the lowest fps I had for a while before this set and Im so used to playing with it now its hard to change even if its higher lol :p

    These are in fact a little bit better for Battlefield 3, also, checked on Borderlands 2 and it looked like pretty much the same.

    So overall would anyone suggest this official Beta over the unofficial one? Also in terms of CCC buggyness? ;)

    I suggest it for HD 7 series owners, I can't speak for HD 6 series. Give it a go. It has newer drivers.

    Anyone install it on a 6990m? Every time I install a new AMD driver there's always that missing DLL file and my clocks stay at idle.

    Hi @ll.
    " While past sets worked, they had bugs. This set is flawless for me as well. This GCN driver is definitely the proper driver we have been waiting for.

    Reading through many forums Nvidia/AMD/ATI alike, it's pretty apparent that both companies released their cards wayyyy before their drivers were ready for them.

    Nvidia is having driving issues, as well as AMD on their new cards.
    "
    i totally agree with this,sometimes we sell our vcard without use their optimal potential,with the AMD/Nvidia marketing wars Gpus are released with no optimized drivers...:pc1:

    Used this set of drivers and they are really good,IQ is so good in my case that i can assure IS not placebo.
    performance feels better but have no benchs yet.
    *no ccc problems here.
    thanks asder00 :thumbup: for give us this set.

    Finally a driver package that does not create an error log entry upon bootup.

    Ugh, can't overclock my HD6950 with these drivers. Any OC causes screen flickering that won't go away until reboot.

    Edit: OK, overclocking with CCC works perfectly, but Trixx flickers no matter what. I guess I can live with that.

    OC programs like Afterburner and Trixx don't work well with latest AMD drivers, and have compatibility issues. CCC should definitely work, but the programs need updated due to changes in the driver code.

    So it's not just you having issues with OC software.

    Oh that's good to hear, thank you. Is there any reason why I never had any trouble on any previous driver updates?

    These are actually worse on Borderlands 2.

    Hi everybody, I have a strange problem installing ATI drivers 12.8 or 12.9 beta with windows 8. When I launch setup.exe nothing appears and nothing happens, I tried to look in task manager and I see that the process setup.exe is not present and it doesn't start. I don't know what to do...:(

    As I had said, AMD/ATI added new driver code, and made some changes to the code. So the OC'ing programs must be udpated to adapt to AMD/ATI's changes.

    Thus why on older drivers you had no issues.

    Everything is great in Borderlands 2 on this end. Forcing x16 AA cripples the game though, 8xAA and under is fine.
