No difference with these compared to 8.11.
You do know that this is the recommended way by ATI?
Even one of the dev team was wondering why people bother with uninstalling drivers, using driver sweeper when this is already included in the ccc releases.
I've never had any problems with installing drivers either with Nvidia or ATI...not a single one in over 10 years of installing drivers.
I always install over the older ones.
In the past I have had nothing but problems trying to do it this way. I guess the results can be as varied as your system.
These are old these now, 8.57's are the latest so far.
lol well thats great for you.. I'm not even going to touch this one. Its the "wondering why" haha.. Some people wonder why others change their oil in there cars when they just keep adding it..
Will be some patch/update/fix for GTA IV? I mean non official.
Could you perhaps post a link to these? I can't find them using google.
Did some benches for a week ago with the 8.10 drivers.
Installed for a couples of days the 8.12 Beta drivers and ran a new bench on Far Cry 2.
Im :banana: with the result. Almost 40% improvement with those specs I play the game. Cant wait to the final set of drivers.

I second that. Don't hold out on use man. It is bad luck to hold out on a driver junkie :bang:
Ran the Furmark 1.4 test.
Last time I tried I scored like 41xx with my AGP system and recently tried with crossfire (pci-e) cards I was scoring almost the same.
Now... With 8.12 Beta and renaming Furmark.exe to ETQW.exe I get 7938 LOL
Look for the Soulfly76 scores ;-)
this are great for me..gpu usage is finally stable in gta 4..no more 50-60% most of the time..
Driversweeper causes that problem......I think its deleting reg entries the vista uses to keep a track of what goes where.
Try uninstalling both vga card entries in device manager, instead of add or remove programs first. Make sure you select delete driver software where applicable.
Do not reboot
Express uninstall all ATI software in programs and features.
Delete C:Ati folder.
Run CCcleaner reg sweep and fix all errors.
Express install new drivers.
If it works, try installing the next few updates over the top of the old drivers. The install manager takes care of all the uninstalling of the old drivers and installing the new ones in one click and reboot.
I got similar problems to this and was uninstalling and sweeping etc etc. A guy from Ati told us there was no need and to do it this way, I haven't had a problem since.
Same here, I never once had an issue.
had no probs updating but......
how do i know if stream is workin, i just ran avivo converter with RT 2.20 and GPUZ 0.3.0 runnin and both said 0% gpu usage on both cores. RT showed both cpu cores at 100% not gpu
Nice improvement on the 3850 FC2 results! 10 FPS up in the minimum department! that's nice. I can't find the newer set yet. So far, these drivers are, well, stable, but nothing else.
i cant even start the game with my sapphire radeon HD4870 512mb
looks like many with 3870 plays the game fine, i dont understand...
can it be my clock that kills my GTA4?
Core2Duo E8400 @ 4.5ghz?
Running 8.11 final, tried 8.12 beta, same result, game dies after characters intro....... :bang:
Could be your Clock indeed. Some games react more heavy on OC then others (just like the WindowsCD's react more heavy on scratches)
Ok.... i will try to lower the clock, should i try first at deafult speed? or any tips?
Yes that would be a wise thing todo. This way you know for sure nothing OC wise is causing trouble for you.
