I have the same problem in Windows 8.
In Windows 7 everything works fine.
I've uninstalled the 12.11 betas and installed both the 13.1's and 13.2 betas, each time using the method below and my custom downsampling resolution (2560x1440) is still intact.
It's as I've suspected... I've also tried that method before and it's no good. I can tell when things have not been uninstalled properly, because certain settings I use will still be the same and not go back to default.
That method does not really work... it's the same as if you just installed the drive over the old drivers you had. It leaves a ton of stuff behind.
That's the only reason why it works for you.
so far the same performance hare from 12.6 to 13.1
I don't recall ever using 12.8 (I think I skipped over them)... with my config, I assume it's advisable to go to them then? WHQL or are there better performing betas?
Is there a way of integrating the application profiles from 13.1 or 13.2b with them?
Have had problems with Afterburner in the past with flashing images but Afterburner version 2.3.0 works fine for me.
I don't think so you're wrong.I made 15 games in two locations and I see gain performance most of the time.
to be honest i only run 3 benchmarks(unigine, metro2033, sleeping dogs) and i see 0% increse in unigine and around 3-4% increse in metro2033 and sleeping dogs. i expected much much more going from 12.6 to 13.1
hi guys, a suggestion
- i5 2500k
- hd6950 single GPU
- msi afterburner 2.2.0
- current driver CCC 12.3
should I upgrade to 13.1 or 12.8 or other one?
Do you care about a benchmark?
Check games.This is important .

Anyone else having the issue where Dirt2 crashes to desktop during the first race?
This is a fresh Win7 Pro x64 installation with 13.1 WHQL. System configuration as seen on my sig except the gpus are clocked stock at the moment (880/1250). Also, after the game crashes, the 2nd gpu does not go into ULPS but stays at 300/150 like the first gpu. A reboot is needed to fix this.
The same issue exists in Win8 Pro x64 with 13.1 WHQL, also a fresh install. Game settings are 1920x1200 8xAA Ultra vsync on. No 3rd party tools (MSI AB/Radeon Pro).
Thanks for the response, but I'm already using 2.3.0.
I couldn't install this driver on my hd7730m laptop. Setup works but it doesn't offer the driver and ccc. Only shows amdsdk and necessary components. Despite, 12.11 beta works!
Edit: I made a mistake. I was trying to install desktop version. It works fine.
ok had crashes/hangs in some other games as well (Dirt 3, Crysis 2) but turns out it was hardware acceleration in Firefox. Disabled it and so far so good. Second gpu is now going properly in ULPS.
Will report back any more issue found.
Try out 13.1 as its the latest official driver (13.2 is a leak and is unfinished so stay away)
Uninstall ALL AMD driver components,
run TwL Genetix cleaner,
run genetix cleaner again so that in Device Manager it says "Standard VGA Adaptor"
run CCleaner to clean registry and left overs.
Test games if you see improvements then keep if not do the same thing again as above but this time try 12.8 as it seems to be the best driver for the 6k series cards. But it all comes down to your system it self, a driver might be bad for some other people but it might be great for you. No harm in trying.
Great. I got my sh"t together. Turned out that my computer didn't like HPET at all and I got some DPC latency issues caused by ndis.sys and some other system drivers. There was always odd cpu spikes(and lag)when played BF3 etc. on every driver. What I did was fresh install of windows 7, new Catalyst 13.1 whql drivers and new Amd chipset drivers. Then I disabled HPET on bios and from OS. Now there are no dpc latency issues anymore and everything is smooth like butter. The best drivers so far, good job AMD!
DPC Latency is going to be high in Win8 almost no matter what Win 8 users do. I haven't had any issues whats so ever though, gaming or streaming video.
You being on Win7 though, yeah it'll be different. At least you figured it out.
DPC Latency viewed from a certain app will be high, due to that app not reading DPC latency properly on W8 (it's a note on the app's website). It'll probably always show 1000+, but that isn't accurate.
...or simply run atiman uninstaller 7.0.2
