Honestly I wouldn't just updated to 12.10 myself this morning

Beta drivers have killed my performance somewhat and causes massive stall issues when gaming so for one I leave them alone now untill the finish product because guess what you are the Guinea pig when it comes to a beta driver
Well at least im not the only one having problems with the beta's! Will wait then. But AMD is releasing soo many beta's now,why not make one that does everything?

I have been using the latest beta without issues atm,my small stutters I use to get in team fortress 2 have seem to been fixed. Um though i use a 6870 so for you it would probably be a total different experience for you. It varies from machine to machine.

Windows10 Pro - 64Bit vs.10547

Confirming this 12.11 (BETA11) works OK with 6870's in crossfire..

Skyrim running lot smoother than with earlier 12.11 BETA's - better definition and colours..
Internet Explorer10 (Windows7 review version) also functions well..

Going to test the new beta,currently using 12.11(beta 8 ). Will post some feedback if this update messes something up or works fine. Testing on a Single 6870.

EDIT: Seems to work fine,about the same as the previous drivers on my rig,couple fps gains on tf2 though.

Only difference I've encountered is that the windows experience index does not seem to be able to complete the task with the new driver installed.

That's about it, running great with my HD7770
