    I have an HP laptop that could probably benefit very nicely from ATI driver updates, but unfortunately you can only update from the HP website, with their propietary drivers, which are pretty much the stock drivers for the 6850m.

    If anyone has any experience with this, let me know.

    For those wondering, yes I have tried just installing the drivers from the AMD website with no luck.

    For those willing to help, information below:

    HP Envy17 2070nr
    6850m with switchable graphics

    I wonder if this will interfere with switchable graphics (I have 2 different graphics drivers that switch between battery and performance)
