Well, I had zero success updating from 12.3 to the Legacy-12.6-beta, which is the driver ATI provided for my HD4850 card. The display driver and HDMI audio driver simply would not install. Error message in the log complained about Windows version and "not allowed" or something like that.

I tried everything that normally works to uninstall completely and "clean", and then install from scratch. The driver in that package simply would not install.

Finally had to restore my system image backup which had operational 12.3.

I had no trouble installing the XP32 Legacy-12.6-beta driver for 32-bit WinXP, so that's what now I'm running on the other boot partition of this same machine. But the install for 64-bit Win7-Vista simply would not complete successfully.

Looks like 12.3 will be the last driver I use as long as I keep the HD4850.

In my case it's actually the 11.11a perfomance drivers that work the best.

After testing and trying out all the subsequent 12.x series drivers, I discovered they all incurr a 10 - 15% penalty to the 3D performance of my Mobility Radeon HD 4670 regardless of the game or application.

Attachment 220084
in the 25th June BETA version of 12.7, the details are slightly different - indicating a later version..

- the 25th June version is the CORRECTLY named 12.7 BETA,
- and it's also the most advanced test driver (- at the time of writing..)

- sorry for my error above..

That Driver was pretty Awful I had to do a Uninstall and go with the 12.4

It worked like it should have and shows the current driver

Honestly 12.6 would be ok 12.7 Will Degrade your WEI

Hence I went back to 12.4 Mind you I installed 12.7 After a clean Install of Win7

So I take it has many issues before giving it a Thumbs up

To me it isn't any good yet untill they do some more changes
