It only took 3 weeks for someone to spot that. We are an observant group.

Ooops, all that time warping has messed up my sense of time.

The 12.1 driver seemed work fine on my old 4600 series. But CCC won't load
Haven't read thoroughly about the compatible card series.

I returned back to 11.9. last week.

Just in passing, I tried to use 12.1 along with installing a new HD5770 card with dual-DVI support for my two Eizo 24" monitors each running 1920x1200 60hz.

Terrible, terrible, terrible flickering. Also BSOD every 5 minutes. Could not do anything but re-boot.

Finally completely uninstalled all ATI with Driver Sweeper, and went back to MS generic drivers while I could research the problem.

Discovered "12.1a Preview" purportedly resolved the BSOD issue. Downloaded and installed, and it was like a miracle. ZERO BSOD's ever since going to 12.1a, and flickering has disappeared as well. I've now got everything stabilized, and am very happy with the HD5770 under 12.1a Preview.

thanks, profdlp..
let us know how you get on with these, please..
I've been doing quite a lot of *BETA-testing lately,
and it'd be nice to know what results you're getting..

*I'm still unable to advance beyond the 8.95 (12.3) BETA version - dated 17th Jan 2012..
every upgrade to this one gives bad artifacts in Skyrim - but that's only with
my cards, though (two 6870's crossfired) - they appear to be working well
with other AMD cards - perhaps it's only the 68xx series that's affected..

- ran bench at 1280x1024 with 4x a/a and a/f
- fair results ..the 12_3BETA(17th Jan) works, OK..

Run a 12.1 custom install, install only the new drivers without the new catalyst.

Then run a 10.11 custom install and instal only the old catalyst.

This way you have the most recent drivers and the catalyst.

Iv tested this with the 4870 and 4890.

Old catalyst? Yes and is working fine.

Here is the result,

I did it in an opposite way. Run 11.12 first then 12.1 without control center.
If I do it 12.1 first then the 11.12 won't run if I unchecked the driver.

Hope that is the best I can get.

Edit: Sorry it was my WDP screenshot, stupid eh..?
