    Just D/L and installed the new AMD WHQL driver 14.4 it went smooth as glass, no problems at all, the same way the latest Intel driver (3517) went right from Intel last week.

    No problems at all after system restart.

    Its so good to see AMD now supporting these 7690m xt's with a "normal" NON OEM driver instead of these idiot "we only make one driver in your lifetime OEM's" like HP, it was nothing short of insane and only drove many to Gforce. So no more waiting for an OEM driver from HP, and even no more concerns about HP OS drivers as I have since updated my original OEM OS (W7) to W8.1up1.

    So for people that have a AMD 6700 series GPU, or one of these 7690m xt's (re-branded 6770) you should now be able to just go with the normal released WHQL drivers.

    note: use the "mobility" driver for laptops

    Hi HOODY, i have the same gpu as you (7690m xt) i have been struggling with these thing since i bought the pc. Now, installed the catalyst 14.4 driver (the one that got realesed few days ago) and the installation was perfect. When i restarted the computer, it showed me an Error message like this: Your amd driver is not working. Install the driver corresponding to your hardware.

    im so mad, i dont know what to do.

    Sounds like something that raises BP, lol, I have no real answer for you, but one thing I didn't do back when the first one of these drivers came out, was to just leave my OEM HP driver installed, and installed the AMD driver right over it, In other words I didn't do any "cleaning", removing of drivers at all.

    BTW, have you updated your Intel driver? yet? to 3517, you should do that before you install the AMD. Also if your on W8 or 8.1, make sure you have your graphics is set to "Dynamic" in your BIOS.

    If you uninstalled your origional OEM driver, try reinstalling that again and than run the AMD.again.

    Also download the "mobility" driver, not the other one. One more thing is I closed down my AV during the install.

    Good luck.

    Thanks HOODY i could install it. Now i have a question, have you ever tried the pscx2 emulator? the GPU canīt get a decent perfomance on it, i dont know why. Checking on MSI afterburner i noticed that during the emulaiton, the core clock is stucked at 400, why its not on 715 as it should be? maybe thats why i get such a shitty perfomance with the pscx2 emulator (30 fps)

    Not too clear on that, I think because the system has to be set to dynamic now, that the AMD card isn't seen properly by MSI afterburner when you run it since the Intel APU is being used, I dono, maybe if your playing some game that requires the AMD card and your able to run MSI , maybe it would show a different value.

    As I said I find no problems with what I do, the game I know I have that won't play on the Intel APU, plays fine when I start that game , so it must be switching to the AMD properly. Sometimes the performance values you see arent exactly right, as long as your games play in a respectable way, why worry.

    Looks like 14.6 beta is out, but not updated on the AMD site yet. Pretty major updates for Eyefinity and frame rate jumps for Watch Dogs and Murdered: Soul Suspect.
