    Are these any different then the official 12.6 Beta? I thought I compared the version numbers of Catalyst last night, and D3D and OGL were the same (thus, any benefits/problems on official 12.6, would exist here?)

    Looks like there was an issue at the mirror, all should be back to normal download speeds now:

    First drivers in several months that have no idle clock bug, allow me to disable ULPS and still maintain my OC. It used to be the case when I would disable ULPS the 2nd GPU would get stuck at 150mhz on my 6990, which would result in about 15 fps (!!!) in games. BF3 Eyefinity 5760x1080 performance is also good, just like the May 12.6 BETA drivers. Will keep :)

    First driver in a while that has Server 2008R2 updated AHCI, RAID and USB Filter drivers, yay!

    And updated HDMI Audio driver too (which has cured the audio disconnect when I switch inputs on my amp and other minor nuisances too)

    Graphic driver? Does it have one of those too? :D

    They fixed the idle clock after reseting overclocking, previous ones failed to get back to proper clocks.
    Text looks a bit sharper? or is it just me ...
    Will see about video reboots or such in the next few days.

    Very interesting. I got my clocks to drop to 150 Mhz on both core & mem when i reset it with AB.
    Got to mention that I have 3 monitors hooked to my card. Will give a try very soon.
    Hope they corrected the flickering textures in Legend of grimrock title I had only with first 12.6 beta release.

    No sticky idle clock bug for me either. The last few drivers gave me that problem. First drivers I will keep since 12.3

    Yes, making the driver believe your card is another model, more info on Benchmark 3D web site, look for Modded drivers.

    Could someone please explain this driver's relationship to the 12.6 official beta? Is it the 12.6 beta just updated (with bug fixes)? I tried the 12.6 official beta, and while the games seems to be responding great to it, I was getting random black screen crashes while on the web while the fan would trigger to 100%. Also, in games, the fan seemed louder than usual. I don't want to try this unofficial beta if it's the same as the 12.6.

    It's a newer build of the 12.6 drivers, I can't say what branch or anything like that (About one and a half week more recent than the official ones.) but these are leaked and not supported by AMD/ATI officially but they seem to work just fine here. :)
    (Didn't know that CAP's had branches either, that was interesting to learn Asder00 though what's up with the newer version number then?)

    12.7 would be 8.99-xx
    (And who knows what they'll do with 12.8 if they go for 9.00-xx though I imagine it's just a build number change.)
