Interesting to see a CAP "ahead" of a driver version wise. I guess it would be pretty safe to assume the 12.9's will be dropping shortly.

Doesnt improve anything for me so i shall stick with 12.8 Cap2's for the time being... Unless they tweaked borderlands 2 or Guildwars 2 performance (that game does make my 6970s chug sometimes, specially in the mist/haze heavy areas or big group events)

And just a heads up, I do my best to check daily and keep my thread (here) with the latest CAPS. Also, over the last couple weeks, AMD has had a some BETA drivers come out, so I think we are pretty close to a new Driver.

I have highlighted the spelling mistake you have done please fix it.
because i don't know what "performanceen" means or maybe you are trying to write "performance seen"?

Are these CAPs basically patches on top of the standard driver package?

EDIT:-
Nevermind, decided to not be lazy and it appears CAPs are for Crossfire users.

Majority of CAP fixes are for Crossfire setups, but with the last few the have done some more single cards fixes. Considering the installed size of them being less than 1MB I think, won't hurt to do on a single card.
