    I read that the beta installs of these drivers already have CAP combined within... so do I need to do that separately like with WHQL or not?

    With the beta drivers, no.

    Thanks for the fast response erocker! I wanted to play some Bioshock Infinite and didn't want to play until I had an answer to this question, :)

    Time to rock! :toast:

    From what I've read, only if you're running Crossfire. The 13.4 CAP is primarily made for that, and it covers lots of games. AMD have far from fixed the Crossfire problems though. They'll need to do more work on the frame latency issue to solve that riddle.

    All I really want to know right now is whether they're working on a beta for Last Light, and if so how soon we'll get it.

    Does it really matter if you install the cap even though the driver has them already?

    Is it going to cause conflict? :confused:

    no, no conflict.

    any cap newer in the driver will ignore external caps.

    install them, always.
