nice find

do you recommend me using the mobility version for my laptop?

AMD A8 w/ HD 6620 G processor


That is an APU right?
Haven't had any experience with them. Check out http://forum.notebookreview.com/ for suggestions on your driver. I would go ahead and try but I am honestly not familiar with your config.

Also what is the HydraVision package guys?! I have skipped 6 months of releases.

Yes, they generally have added tweaks for display brightness when on battery and such.

Yes. Apparently they house both the quadcores and GPU in the whole package. quite honestly, I like it. I'm sure there would be horrible bottleneck issues had the GPU been a separate graphic card itself. only downside issue would be the inability to change out GPU's like in the older days of my desktop

Doesn't look like there should be any issues of installing it. The only thing I can think of is the Laptop OEM drivers that might be adjusted better towards your config like Deranged mentioned.

Personally I have to deal with a whole other ball game. Intel HD + AMD drivers need to be in the same package and if the OEM doesn't update the driver for at least a new iteration of windows then you are stuck with having to hack together drivers through different methods.

I think the x64 HDMI audio driver issue only happens on Win8. I installed the Win7 one fine in win8. But...how the hell did that get past testing :p

Same, flawless installation for me running 7

I guess AMD do have some sense and don't run Win 8 :p

Yeah, I got the HDMI Audio Driver error on Windows 8 x64. I don't use HDMI audio anyway so not much of a big deal for me personally, but how that managed to get into the final version is beyond me :/

Not that many improvements it doesn't look like for my 6870, mainly fixes. There's been a bit of micro-stuttering with FIFA 13 but everything else seems just as before.

Some people on TR said they repackaged the driver to fix the audio driver issue. Mine just installed fine.

Thank Detection, lets hope they did this one better than the beta version.
