    PerformanceTest 7 shows that these drivers are better for 3D performance, but worse in 2D performance when compared to the 12.1 officially released drivers (there is only a slight difference in numbers though, nothing significant).

    Wow that is disappointing. They bring out a driver for Win 8 but only for certain cards and then they reply like that.

    I know here on Guru someone explained how to edit INF to add your card to the list. That seems the only way for us folks with older gen cards

    Did you get any luck re-modding these? I really appreciate all your hard work Asder00

    EDIT: FYI the driver part won't install but the rest does, if i force install the driver through device manager i get the following:

    The new CCC etc does not work with the old drivers either (12.2 pre cert)

    Ok, I got my 7970 installed (forced) in win 8 with the 12.2 Precertified drivers, but crysis 2 doesn't recognize any resolution just shows "undefined", didn't try any other game yet.

    Does anyone have a similar problem? (and i tried several compatibility modes)

    I am too scared to try Crysis 2 since it took hours for me to even get it to run at something other than 24/50hz on either my monitor or television with fully working drivers/ccc on Windows 7.

    Getting BSOD's when i activate " Turn on fast startup" the hybrid boot thing, in closing lid optinons in Power Options.

    Every time i enable Hybrid Boot i get a BSOD in first boot after shut down, and say atikmdag.sys.

    The event log's say " Windows Failed to Hybrid boot with error status 0x0000001"

    I have a HPdv6 3240 with dual graphics amd mobility 4200 and 6550.
    Amd Triple core N850.

    With switchable graphics I would suggest holding off on Windows 8.
