Thanks for the info! Installed the 13.4 drivers here.
Downloading now 13.4. Last compatible version that existed for my 6570M was 13.1. A nice upgrade after 4 months.

hello: please bare w/me ~ i REALLY appreciate your time
i am new to computers after a 15 yr hiatus and so i am not well versed with all things pc
w/that said ... i am having a rather difficult problem. i just bought a Toshiba Satellite S875-S7376 notebook with an AMD Radeon HD 7670M graphics card, Windows 8 64bit, 8GB RAM, 1TB hard drive and intel Core i7
over the last year i have been learning to use Photoshop and other Creative Cloud Apps. i got the new laptop so that i could use the 3D tools, Filter and other bells & whistles (as my other laptop doesn't have a decent graphics card & i've had to use Ps in Basic Draw Mode).
however, as i gather there's a problems with the AMD graphics card and Windows 8. when i draw a shape the entire canvas fills with black, same with the Pen tool and other things and when i use the 3D tools Ps crashes.
in Device Manager the info about the Display Adapter is: Manufacturer/Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. | Location/PCI bus 1, device 0 function 0 | Driver Date/12-19-2012 | Version/184.108.40.206 |Digital Signer/Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher
okay, sorry ... finally here are my questions ... Is the Above Beta 3 what I am looking for? Is this particular release for my type of graphics card (Radeon HD 7670M)? I am unsure if I should download this because if it is not and it does something frightening to my computer i wouldn't know how to resolve it nor would i have the means to hire assistance. (sigh)
also, do you know if there are any other updates for anything else w/re: to Windows 8? i saw something about Chipset Drivers but i don't know what that is ... i will Google it after i'm done here but just thought i'd ask.
THANK YOU so very very much for taking the time to read my post. i cannot tell you how much i would appreciate your help.
i am thinking i may need to either return my laptop to where it once came or i may need to get rid of Win8 and go back to Win7 as i only have 2 weeks to make a decision about returning the Toshiba
be well and take care
Hi KaraR, and welcome to Eightforums.
Since you have a laptop I would NOT recommend to install videocard drivers directly from the videochipset manufacteror site. Which in this case would be AMD.
It is commonly know that laptop manufacteror's have their own way to integrate the videochipsets into their products. That means that the standard AMD videocard drivers will most likely not work for you. You therefore need to download the Toshiba rebranded videocard drivers.
So my advice to you is. Go to the Toshiba site and check if they have released new drivers for your specific type of laptop. Install all the updates, including new motherboard chipset drivers, if any available.
That way you may solve your problem.
Good luck with it!

What was posted above is right, the drivers won't be downloadable direct from AMD. I have a HP with another one of these "great" re-branded cards, the 7690M XT, another "Radeon" that isn't supported by AMD. I just use the last working driver posted on HP driver site and gave up on anything new from AMD. I will never again buy anything with a re-branded Radeon, only Gforce now.
If you want my bottom line opinion, take the thing back where you got it and ask the sales guys if your not sure what I'm saying, and get yourself a laptop that has the GFORCE video card, that uses NVIDIA graphics drivers, those ARE directly downloadable when updated and will install with no problems. I know because I got my friend one of those when I got mine and it was a breeze to update his new laptop to the latest NVIDIA driver.
But that's just what I feel, and dealing with AMD and HP for months only to find there isn't anything that can be done but to use mine as is until I change.
AMD did a few months ago talk about some "enduro" driver name that was supposed to be downloadable and installable like the NVIDIA driver, but it didn't turn out like that.
So I'd take it back if you have that option and get a "GFORCE"
