    And this is why driver releases dissapoint a lot of people. Don't think a new driver will fix all your problems, most likely will do nothing or make them worse.

    Agreed. Most problems are system problems and not AMD problems. Of course, there are game fixes here and there, which is what these updates are all about.

    They will never fix bsods because all versions are bsod free, beta and WHQL.

    So that means anyone with those problems, do not rollback drivers or try random other ones to try to fix it. It will not help. And even if it seems it does, there is still a system issue that needs sorting. Old drivers being top of list, or poor antivirus needing to be removed in safe mode with the tool by manufacturer to do so. AVG and Norton top that list.

    I don't see what the problem is? The longer they take, the more time they have too work out the kinks.

    ^ Aw don't get me wrong, I'm a bit of a "Driver Junkie" myself, but I feel there are still too many issues that need to be worked out. One I would like to see is a "FPS fix for Farcry 2." I mean, AMD has had all this time and they still haven't fixed it.

    Fortunately, the game allows you to "cap the FPS in game" which somewhat fixes the problem but not completely.

    I've never really had many Driver problems from AMD I've had 3 5870's, 3 5850, 1 5970 with a 5870, 3 6950 all in tri sli that ran great. 2 5970 or quad xfire ran aweful and my 3 7970 in tri wont run at all with eyeinfinity.
    With only 1 7970 it runs great but in eyefinity not all games I can max, so If you don't have my setup you dont know what the **** your talking about so stfu about my wanting new drivers. i want to be able to run the $1650 worth of AMD crap i bought back in January!
    I love it when people with 1 old card get on here and say there is no problem with AMD drivers. Thanks captain obvious!

    You can post your crash dumps if you wish in a new thread.

    C:\Windows\Minidump

    Copy files to new folder then make zip. Upload to Rapidshare or similar. Make new thread and attach.

    It is very rare that game makers have to fix issues with bsods and almost never with AMD (or NVIDIA).

    Debugging is my specialty and if it is not makers' fault, I can sort it for you in one post.

    No...

    I must disagree, because I have BSODs with my HD 7870 on all drivers version (12.3, 12.4, 12.5 beta) and I have two displays connected to my GPU by DVI and HDMI. (before on my HD 6950 all was good...).

    P.S. Where are the 12.5 WHQL? So long from 25 April... (12.4whql).

    ^ Yeah, and lately it's not like "WHQL" has proven to be better or anything.

    ^ 12.5 beta are older for sure, 12.5 whql will be newer, 12.5 beta are from 17 April right? (12.5 beta drivers date are even from 16.04.2012)

    They said they where working on "my" problem for this driver.....that's right they work for me now :) and I wont let them get away with anything other then a complete fix.
    I may not be able to deliver the promised PRON STAR PARTY ( it was just an incentive )!
    My guess is they wont deliver anything either so we're even!
