    Yup, not the first time they're doing that, hope they're stuffing it properly. If we're getting no whql over these 2 days left, sure they will put it off until early June.

    lol Imagine being an AMD driver engineer and getting to work today thinking, "Oh effff damn only one more work day until we miss 12.5!!!"

    haha yes, I know MS grants WHQL and they probably had to submit earlier already, but still...

    ...the thought is rather funny.

    I can't reckon if it was 12.2 or earlier, but I remember for sure they already once missed the deadline this year.


    12.5 is well secretive, allegedly with some new features which I'm not sure, and without much word about it anywhere. How about twitter, has anything at all been posted?

    Last friday CatalystCreatort tweeted "Look for new drivers next week".

    "AMD can't release drivers till they get WHQL authorization"

    So what exactly is stopping them from releasing non-WHQL drivers?

    I think it would be much better for AMD to release WHQL only "sometimes" (i agree WHQL to be once a half a year), and many-many betas (even if they moved checkbox in CCC there should be a beta). They just take themselves to a dead end releasing a signed set every month. And a big thanks for Microsoft for being suck slowpokes checking drivers.

    In addition to V1tol's, I'd be greatful to AMD:

    1) if all future realeses did not mess the achievements for HD 5 and 6000 series

    2) if it was possible to change cards without having to reinstall Catalyst
