Thanks a lot

Edit: With this driver I can't see Overdrive in the CCC either, but not a big deal since OC'ing my cards results in even more microstutter

Lol did my post got deleted because it was a double post or because I used the smiley?

Anyway, this driver fixed Skyrim's Crossfire Flickering for me.

AMD Overdrive doesn't show in CCC, but the function still works. You can use MSI Afterburner on any brand and control the Overdrive functionality through there.

Might try these but I usually don't have much luck with mobile oriented drivers, that said the so called 12.7 beta from AMD with those performance fixes have worked quite well so far so there's no real reason to upgrade yet.

Unsure if AMD have now fully stopped the monthly release schedule which they talked about a while back or if there will be a actual 12.7 driver release at the end of the month, better they take the time to fix and update the CCC and drivers properly though.
(New profiles and performance improvements are of course always welcome but I prefer bug fixes and program improvements.)

EDIT: Might as well download it, I'm quite a amateur at this but it'll be fun to see if there's anything added to the atiumdag.dll and atidxx32.dll for game profiles and such.

EDIT: Doesn't seem to be anything unless "alan_wakes_american_nightmare.exe" is new.
(There's a tj3.exe as well but I don't know what that would be, autocad, 3d studio max and maya also have some exe profiles from the looks of it.)

So we can still apply OC settings via Afterburner or whatever with this... just not CCC? Fine by me!

PS. Thanks! Will give everyone impressions soon(ish) from a 58xx trifire perspective.

Should do, custom install, leave out the CCC, and then custom install it from your previous drivers.

The only thing that I seriously care for, is the crash while on browsing with HWA on.

If you face it, give us a call. I'll do the same. I went back to 12.6 cause of that.

This driver's 2D version is the same as 12.6 '1253', can someone remind me what's the version on previous 25/26 June drivers?

I tried it - Just don't install the "new CCC" what comes with that driver and keep the old one and you're fine.

I confirm skyrim is fixed in this driver. Wonder if there are other fixes as well.

Crysis 2 however is sensibly slower than 12.5 at ultra.

EDIT: Alan Wake American Nightmare perfomance is fixed as well. Now getting vsynch 60fps at ultra preset. Need to test some more games.

Ok overdrive fixed, added support for vista and hopefully windows 8 but you may need to disable driver signature enforcement for windows 8.
Also added latest caps and some missing packages.

Uploading right now...

For the overdrive to reappear i had to do a system restore, and then istall the fixed driver.
Caps are 12.7 cap1 you should already have that so no need to re-install caps.

Thread updated with the new version.
