Hey All,

Seems like AMD has gone ahead and released the 12.11 beta 7 drivers today!

not much on the update front besides this:

  • Additional update found in AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta7
  • Call of Duty Black Ops 2: AMD CrossFire performance has been improved in the AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta7 release (especially at higher resolutions – such as 2560x1600)
  • Please note that AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta 7 includes all of the fixes found in previous versions of AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta

I wonder when new legacy support will be in Catalyst, because from what I've been hearing, 12.6 isn't working with Windows 8. That's why I am unable to really play any games except the ****ty Windows ones.

No need to say thanks, wanted to help, also read all stuff under this hood "Resolved issue highlights of AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta Driver" especially last bullet which mentions changes in BETA7 specifically.
