    Apparently not, well of interest also, clicking on the link that says "do you own a amd radeon hd 7970" doesn't work properly either. of course you can't compare a video card by its webpage....

    The only Windows 8 driver for AMD is the 8.93.7 RC 10 which is also offered through Windows Update.

    Smart man. I was going to tell you the problem probably wasn't the hardware. I have mixed and matched a pretty wide variety of hardware and never seen any problems with certain cards not working on certain boards. I know it is possible but in the hundreds of systems I have done it has never happened to me. I build systems for people and some times people want some weird shit but it always seems to work.

    My problem is that with the TBS6981 card and HD channels, only the 10.2 version of CCC works without horrible pixelation and artefacts.

    Having tested 12.2 on Win7 and it not fixing this particular problem, it's unlikely that CCC and Windows 8 are any good for me right now.

    If I go down the Windows 8 route, I'll most likely need an intel based solution.

    What non-ATI video cards are available?

    You can go nVIDA or a intel HD integrated graphics which would mean you would need a new mobo and cpu if your using a amd mobo at the moment but just getting a nVDIA card would be fine with a amd mobo.
