Hi guys, one question:
Somewhere I read that with these beta drivers (starting with 13.2) it isn't necessary to install CAP, is this so?
Thanks,

If I understood correctly on AMD's site, you do have to install the latest CAP but cannot select in the Catalyst Control Center. That option was removed. You can only add a created profile.

Only as far as this beta goes at the moment,

** OFFICIAL ** Catalyst 13.2 beta thread

CAP's that come out after a driver release usually contain profile updates/fixes that didn't make it into the driver.

Both WEI graphics scores dropped to 7.8 from 7.9 with new AMD drivers, 13.2 Beta3. Has anyone else seen this?
Will run some benchmarks using them. If no significant”cant improvements I'll roll back to 13.1 and wait for maturer betas.
