    Update my driver today with this package and works fine. Be aware that Windows Update will try and install the old driver.

    Windows 8 CP x64

    Has anyone tried this for AMD Switchable Graphics (e.g. Intel HD Graphics 3000 + AMD Radeon HD 6700M) on Windows 8 Release Preview x64 (Build 8400)?

    I am aware of Leshcat's drivers, but they are only built for Windows 7 and below.

    If anyone has this working (without setting the PC's BIOS to Fixed Mode, but rather, using Dynamic Mode with AMD's Windows 8 Catalyst Control Center), please post the installation steps + drivers + versions used.

    Thanks much,

    I have problem on ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470. I get BlueScreen when i try install drivers from Catalyst Installer or Device Manager. I tried installing old (Consumer Preview or Win 7 12.6 Beta, 12.4, 12.2) driver but then i can not switch to AMD 5470 from AMD 4250. I see code 10 error on properties of 5470 in Device Manager. I am using Power Saving GPU now and waiting for a solution on internet

    Sorry for waking up this a week old topic, but just asking: Is that AMD's driver for windows 8 a complete one, or just a small compatibility conversion to 8, since the conversion didn't work with accelerated OpenGL mode (and that's why i had to downgrade back to 7)

    WDDM1.2 is awful on my system (Radeon HD5770).
    Text in all applications is blurry with ghosting etc.
    I have tried everything suggested on the forums but the problem persists.
    I can understand WDDM1.1 being a bit buggy, but AMD have had plenty of time to fix those issues.

    Windows 8 Release Preview 64 Build 8400

    Have you guys tried running Cyberlink PowerDVD 12 or WinDVD Pro 11 or Truetheater using AMD graphics cards? Know any driver version that would allow me to use these softwares?

    Tried running these same apps using Intel HD 3000 and it would load up correctly

    The Preview drivers are for HD5000 and up. AMD has split their drivers for Windows 7 also with one driver for HD 5000 and up and another for the older versions. Windows 8 drivers for you card should be coming out as RTM is released to the public but don't know when.
