    When a Steam toaster appears, or you enable Steam in-game, does anyone else experience a gamma issue where in-game brightness goes really high?

    I'm a bit confused ... but is it necessary to install 12.11 CAP2 after installing 13.2 Beta?
    Sry for the stupid question ...

    No the 13.2 Beta includes CAPs that are newer than the 12.11 CAP2. Newer = they include the older CAPs (one of which is 12.11 CAP2).

    Thanks for your prompt response ...

    does 13.1 also includes the caps ?

    stand alone cap installs go to a different area than bundled ones.

    Heres the differencies between the cap in this driver and the 12.11 cap2, so you can test these games and check for improvement:

    3dMark Vantage (cfx)
    Battle Forge (cfx)
    Aliens Vs Predator (cfx)
    Lost Planet 2 (cfx)
    F1 2012 (cfx)
    3DMark 11 (cfx)
    Crysis 2 (cfx)
    Battlefield 3 (cfx)
    Dirt Showdown (cfx)
    Crysis 3 (unreleased)
    Medal of Honor: Warfighter (cfx)
    Tomb Raider (unreleased)
    Nexuiz (cfx)
    Blacklight: Retribution (cfx)
    FarCry 3 (single card)
    Skyrim (cfx & single card)
    GuildWars 2 (cfx & single card)
    Borderlands 2 (cfx & single card)
    Rise of the Triad (unreleased)

    Just played far cry 3 with beta 13.2, no real improvement with cfx 7970s vs 12.11 beta 11, still stuttering. Guess we'll have to wait until the memmory manager rewrite. Overall glad to see new drivers though (other cfx tweaks), and i do like the per application tweaks to the control panel , even if i wont use them due to radeon pro.

    So, Worth it for a 5870M or stay with 13.1 / other recommendations?

    I tried on my 5850m, worked great until I shut my lid... bsod every time. I dont have it set to go to sleep when closing the lid either, but this looks promising as games felt smoother. Frame latencies seem to be improved in guild wars 2 and dishonored, but framerates are the same.

    blah blah blah, more forum nonsense. dx9 still makes the most sense even today, dx10 was a bust and the 8800/9800 series are still the mostly widely used cards. The game is extremely well done for what it is, leave it alone. They started developing this game in 2007, so figure it out...

    Hmm, these two seem to conflict with each other. Seems odd you get a GSOD when closing your laptop....

    Right I know its installed with the driver, but the old style showed the applications in a list and you could select them. I guess that method has been removed and it's all automatic, and you can't manually select and force it from the drop down menu anymore.

    Other than all of that, this driver is amazing for sure. It has everything 13.1 had and a bit more. Sure I understand it doesn't have everything that the official 13.2 will, but its a better driver than 13.1 from my experiences.

    Yes they started developing it in 07', but that does not mean changes can't still be made. They mentioned that they would support DX11 after it started development, and decided to drop it. It could have been a choice to enable or not. From what I understand, they still have plans to make it DX11 in the future, just how GW1 rendered in DX9 or 8.1 if you didn't have a DX9 card when factions released.

    And they were recycling it over and over again for the past 5 years. So go figure it out...
