Windows 7: Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7

In the past I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Catalyst Software Suite. Each time I had to reset the scaling option. This time when I unstalled the software and rebooted everything looked good. The computer is actually working much better even though I didn't add the new software. Can I just update the driver and not use Catalyst? I never use the Catalyst software, except when my screen size gets messed up.

jpash, welcome to the Seven Forums.

yes you can. If you use the full Catalyst suite to install make sure to do a custom install (should do this with anything being installed, if for no other reason than to see what little extras might try and get installed), and uncheck anything you don't want including the CCC. Or you can go here,

ATI Radeon

and download just the driver by itself.

Or if you want even newer,

AMD gDEBugger | AMD Developer Central

Don't need the gDEBugger unless you want it. Been seeing good reports about these, and rumors that they are 11.7 without WHQL,

Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7-unigine_11.7_guru.jpg

although I got a big reduction in fps using that 11.7 test driver in Unigine, it
ran well in Crysis 2 - all maxed, went very smoothly under Crossfire 11.6CAP2
but the CCC felt "clunky" and W7 didn't seem to like it - coupla error messages..
also caused BSOD problems related to USB's when closing down PC

- could be affecting the G19 keyboard's interface - not sure..
- shan't be conducting any further experiments with it, but it looks good
- guess at the moment it's just a test-rig thingy anyway..
- interesting though - reduced fps but very, very smooth..

Sidenote: I tried to uninstall the 11.7 via Control Panel - the uninstallation did not go well,
had a severe system hang - tried a restart, and was confronted with error message from Windows 7 - Windows Explorer had stopped working - may have been caused by a partial uninstall, so I re-installed 11.7 driver and rebooted - the second attempt at removal went OK.. bit scary..
