    Hi folks
    I got an BlueScreen Error with installing this driver on a Saphire Radeon 4890 Toxic Vapor-X so be careful! (uninstalled old driver before!). So perhaps not suited for 4800 Series (retried 2x times, everytime BlueScreen)

    No issues for me yet..tried BF3,Alan Wake,Syndicate. I use ATIMAN every time before installing a new driver.

    Well at least you guys are taking Unofficial BETA to heart and not raging out.

    Yeah....and it also helps if there's a bug, that you report it to the catalyst team
    even though it's a beta, they will still see the reports, and it might be fixed in an upcoming release. It NEVER hurts to report a bug. Nothing is going to jump out of your screen and slap you for reporting....

    I keep away from these sort of drivers that aint on AMD's servers but whats more shocking to me is that Hilbert has actually put these (obviously sh!tty) drivers on the Guru3D servers. :eek3:

    BSOD's and having to reinstall your OS just isnt something i need to contend with. My PC is running peachy right now and im not about to risk breaking it for the sake of a few fps more lol :)

    Running 12.1 Previews :p

    This is going to sound like some kind of a cop-out question (too lazy to do the research etc.) but is there a general consensus thread/table/something that lays out the significant Catalyst releases, their benefits, bugs, AAA games that work well (or not at all), crossfire performance... that sort of thing? I know people's PCs handle different drivers differently, but majority are unanimously good or bad. Just be good to know without having to ask all the time!

    Do these work with Portal 2 ? With the 12.3RCs (or 12.2 pre-certified from AMD's website) Portal 2 will straight away crash upon startup.

    Well Hilbert was prob trying to help out by hosting these on a faster server.
    Besides, noone is forced to download them.....and threads like this help people decide whether or not to use the drivers. :)

    2014 the year AMD driver dev's create a dedicated driver build (CCCxf)
    for Crossfire hardware configurations.

    I'm still running 8.95-120117a with a 6990/6970. I have tried more AMD drivers in the past year than I have total installs of Nvidia drivers since 2001. :bang:

    Sure would be nice for some monster mystery GPU to surface and add a three way to the GPU market. Hum! Two major CPU markets plus two major GPU markets? We need more variation, more mix in the market, more competition to speed up development.

    Shrink dammit! Holographic & Quantum computing hardware :)

    However, the 2010 update to the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors has growth slowing at the end of 2013, after which time transistor counts and densities are to double only every 3 years.

    Slowing down the process after the big wigs discussed with a fine vintage bottle of Scotch. WTF! Are we supposed to do when we reach 0 nano meters.

    US, Europe does not contain hyper links, hum?

    RIP 3DFX
    RIP Omega drivers.

    Those driver from "Marthand" works as it should? I'm trying to find a driver with the same performance for Battlefield as the 12.3 RC and also one that don't cause image corruption on Skyrim.

    Not the slightest. Use the 8.96 February 14 instead. This Feb28 one messes up Crossfire setups.
