    the saying is that the latest original driver coming from the manufacturer works best but there is some experience out there that sometimes an older driver fits to your system better than a new one. Fazit: find out by yourself by toggling between these versions

    CCC Beta 13.8 not working, it says that the graphic driver isn't signed. Stay with the preview driver atm

    Beta 13.8 drivers would not work. I tried the same.

    Windows 8.1 Preview drivers are working fine on Win 8.1 RTM including CrossFireX settings.

    The best drivers you can install right now for any HW component are the ones that come on Windows Update.

    yes and no. In my case (and think some others) with dual graphics laptop, WU only recognizes the "integrated" card and not the dedicated

    I installed this driver first:

    hxxp://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/AMDCatalystOpenGL43BetaDriver.aspx

    After that one finished i installed 13.8 Beta2 without wipping the first one:

    hxxp://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/AMDCatalyst13-8WINBetaDriver.aspx

    Now i have the framepacing fix also running.

    Replace the xx with tt;)

    You likely don't have frame pacing at all. Only thing you probably have is a useless checkbox in Catalyst :cool: along with some mixed files.

    Go to Device Manager and check the driver version and date. Can almost guarantee they're the same as the OpenGL 4.3 driver, and thus, don't have the code to even support the new frame pacing changes (do post a screenshot though for verification)

    @Espionage, you are right. 13.8 does not work in 8.1 RTM. My mistake
