    Never even thought there would be drivers for Win 8 consumer preview yet I just used the 12.2 preview drivers I was using on my HP Win 7 Ult for the W 8 CP on the other drive.

    Looks like this driver is included with Windows 8. My card shows driver 8.93.7 dated 2/17. I wonder if this RC10 is the same or an update? I installed 12.2 but it did not replace the video driver so back to default and will see how it goes. So far all is great.

    I have a radeon hd 7770, only driver I have available to me is 12.2, for every os except windows 8, I have noticed an odd bug, windows 8 reports me my 2D performance of just a 2.5 even while saying 3D is many times higher

    Was able to get the catalyst installed fine, and Windows says my driver is up to date, but it also says my driver won't work with this version of Catalyst.
