I'm still lagging. 11.12 is stable as heck on my HD 4670, and I don't have time to fiddle with games right now.

Worst drivers ever for me.. Skyrim had corrupted blocks!? Unisntalled AMD completely and went back to 11.2 without any issues.

What card are you using? Just dropped them, and my GPU loves it. Visible increase in FPS in Skyrim.

Maybe I should try another full reinstall of the 12.2's, just to see if there was something wrong with the download or over-writing of files. HIS 6850

I should clarify that I am still on AGP. For the next few weeks, then I am FINALLY upgrading to something a bit more capable. That shouldn't really affect driver performance (or garbage in the games), but who knows.

ADDED: Uh, I am on 12.1. We AGP'ers are a month behind in releases, it seems.

install issues for me with 12.3. System hangs when installing the Catalyst Controle Center. Forcing me to hard reset and after the reboot it appears to be installed....very strange.
So i installed 12.2 again(after about 3 attempts ) and it says its 12.3 :s

12.2 drivers have a bug - they show they are 12.3. Nothing to worry.

I stopped updating my drivers a long time ago, every now and then I'll do one but there's barely any point when I have a 4850 unless a game in beta recommends it because its a hotfix version for that certain game, etc. If its not broke, don't fix it lol

Allen86, AMD drivers have an autoupdate feature for some time now, you may be using the latest drivers without even realizing you have them.

I've heard that 12.5 were the last stable drivers released as the releases after that have a memory leak. 12.8 was supposed to fix it but I've experienced a few small issues with them from time to time.

tried it out an HD4550 and was the worst ever, messed up everything. It made my video card look as if it were dying. Went back to AMD's site and let it automatically check for my drivers and used older ones which work perfectly for me.
