    THANK YOU for this.. especially with AMD drivers that come out every other day...

    Im good with 13.1 WHQL, thanks! :laugh: :toast:

    And it looks like its only for a Crysis CfX problem.. useless to most. Why wasnt this a CAP?

    OMFG this place and having ZERO editing tools in a non advanced reply.. so annoying. :banghead:

    Well I may have to try this driver as after Origin updated Crysis 3 yesterday I noticed that Crossfire was not working (90% on one card and 10-15% on the second). Before the update I had no problems with Crossfire.

    It only resolves a hang? Well I guess that's good for people who have that issue.

    I thought a CAP was specifically for a game and not across a line of whatevertheheck? This is a fix for ONE GAME and its an entirely new beta? AMDLOLSOS. :slap:

    Seriously though... great for those few that run CFx on this game, otherwise, more AMD making the tinyest incremental fookn updates.

    There is only so much you can do with a cap. Most likely it is a coding fix that happens to effect one current game.

    Dont forget caps eventually get rolled into the driver as well.

    That isnt what this is? Read the notes that have been posted a couple times now. Its a CFx fix for Crysis 3, that is it.

    caps cant fix coding errors.

    they tweak low level driver settings...

    if a setting doesnt exsist to fix something, they have to fix the driver itself.

    CAP= Catalyst Aplication Profiles.

    IT DOES NOT = Crossfire Application Profile.

    People get that wrong. a lot.
    Zubasa and EarthDog say thanks.

    Never enough. The more the better with people's individual systems having issues while most do not, they have many more options to try.

    Too lazy to read the second post?

    Too lazy to click on it. But I did, that's where the quote/patch notes came from.

    Someone cue the theme song to Rocky. :laugh:

    Did you know Stallone is still seriously considering a Rocky 7? Balboa needs to catch up to AMD. LOL

    The final installment will be "Walky", with Rocky using a walker.

    I appreciate the fact that AMD got this driver out only a day after Crysis 3 was patched and screwed-up Crossfire. I was wondering last night how long it would take. Never thought it would be less than a day:toast:

    I'm still getting driver crashes on Crysis 3 no matter what version of the 13.2 beta drivers I use :(. This beta 7 got me through 2/3 of a multiplayer match and then my driver died. 13.1 was stable all the way through single player.
