Use the latest CAP with these drivers.
This is so much better than a BSOD that fucks up motherboard BIOSes:
Thank you, AMD.
Seriously. You have no idea how bad previous version were unless you've had some specific hardware/software combos. WHQL certification only really means that driver crash will not cause BSOD, and for once, this is true. I can no longer replicate the problem, 4 fucked up boards later. THANK GOD.
From which version did you upgrade from?
Should I upgrade too? Running a 6870.
Well, back at 12.8 again. Can't touch overclocking at all with new driver. :shadedshu
This is the kind of thing that could make me switch to nvidia.
Anybody else having issues with the HDMI audio install? Using a 6950.
Ive been running it with my 7950,no issues so far.
I had issues last night with the HDMI audio when trying to un-install this driver. I used the AMD Catalyst Uninstall Utility:
Then tried to install the 12.10 drivers and I kept getting an error message about the HDMI audio drivers. Used Driver Sweeper and same thing. I think (can't remember as it was getting real late and a few too many drinks) that I went into the Device Manager and disabled from there. Finally was able then to re-install the 12.10 drivers.
The reason I switched back is because my system would re-start frequently while running BOINC (all 3 GPU's). I did not have this issue with 12.10 at the same settings. Yes the GPU's were overclocked to 1100 on the core.
There was no BSOD, the computer just shut down and re-booted.
Since I re-installed 12.10 the computer has not shut down once and this is with the same overclock
Download the drivers from AMD's site again: www.amd.com

Not exactly, from what I have gleaned from some forums, there may be some additional tweaks over 12.11 Beta11. Some have reported improved fluidity over the Beta driver in games. Unlike 13.2Beta driver, 13.1 WHQL driver requires 12.11 CAP2 to be installed for CF users, although some have suggest that single GPU users install it as well.
I know it is different now from experience. Suprisingly I got 1000 point gain in 3dmark11 from 12.11 beta 8 to 13.1.
Have you tried to install the driver ONLY, without installing CCC and CAP profiles? (Also you may need HDMI/DP driver if you use one of these)
I am running my 7970 without the CCC and it is so much better without... no crashes no bugs no misconfigured games... I really dont know why ppl with 1 GPU actually use CCC...
usually it solves those problems, not causes it.
i guess its worth a try for troubleshooting. (not for me tho, crossfire)
PFFFF I tried to benchmark with 13.1 and 3dMark11 gets stuck (AMD driver stops responding) when the card is clocked to anything above 1050/1450... thats like 75mhz lower than with 12.11
Jump map in Faster Than Light is missing in 13.1. Was working in earlier driver,
I'm unable to install on my 7950.
More details? I haven't tried yet.
Well I get this error message
"Driver Install: the driver package does not specify a hardware identifier".
I really couldn't tell you much more
Interesting. I had thought about trying that.
But then I how do you control the 3D settings?
I guess then you are limited to whatever settings the game has?
Running 13.1 on my 7950, no problems at all thus far.
How did you go about installing? I'd like a step by step guide as I'm still have trouble.
Nothing special at all, just uninstalled the old driver through windows (programs and features). Reboot, install 13.1. Reboot once more. Benchmark
This will not get the better of me.
Tried both 13.1 and 13.2 beta on my HD6950, but went back to 12.11 beta 11, they gave me better performance in Fifa 12 and BF3.
Sometimes was stuttering a bit, but not with the 12.11's.
Well someting has changed with Saints Row 3.
The 12.11 Beta 11 had a very slight stutter to it which appeared to be from rendering up coming objects and textures.
Seems to be none of that with these drivers so there may have been some other things they worked on rather than releasing the 12.11 Beta 11 as WHQL.
I still can't get the driver to recognise my card, what the hell is wrong
