hey, that's how spooky it gets..
other 4*** and 5*** series users are reporting improvements from the recent 8.95test vs.

- maybe there'll be some additions before general release *crosses fingers*

BTW: the new 7*** BETA test drivers seem to be very popular with those up at the really pointed end..

Hi Miguel.
Just realized the issue was with my Windows 8 (posted above)
It runs quite well on my Windows 7, just installed it now.
Being fond of WDP makes me almost forget to boot from Windows 7.
Your post were able to wake me up.

no problem, was giving my feedback that it worked on my series. Since I saw you guys were having problems with it. Didn't know it was a win 8 issue but good to know for others who are thinking about trying it on win 8.

Tried to update again with the same flickering result. Googling around i found the solution. Simply disable overclock on the CCC panel which is turned on by default on the update. Problemo solved.

Much screen flickering and aero not working correctly.
I used system restore to revert back to 3 AM last night...it said restore failed, BUT I noticed that I am back to 11.5 and everything is working great again.

Just out of curiosity, is there some known reason why AMD decided to do away with the "optional separate downloads" for drivers and CCC? That seems to have disappeared with the original 12.1 release, as I recall discovering.

I'd always taken the separates approach, rather than the "complete suite". But that's no longer an option.

I guess it might have been easier for them to eliminate optional product packages, but now, after so many years of doing it that alternate way as well? They obviously knew how to do it, and the mechanisms were long in place. So why stop now?

The install program will let you pick what to install with the custom option. Express option will install everything.
