    You may want the check your first post. That 2nd link should have APU after Desktop.

    Also the 1st link still gives 14.4 WHQL and 14.7 Beta.

    Looks like only the APU driver has the new release.

    Hey Jim,

    Yeah, hopefully AMD will have it on the main link as well soon.

    looking again at the narrative on the top of the page that was posted for this driver it does state

    "Compatible Operating Systems The AMD Catalyst™ Software for AMD Desktop APUs"

    What are APU drivers


    What are desktop APU drivers? What's the difference between the standard desktop drivers?

    Thanks.

    APU is an AMD CPU product that has built in GPU. There are the A series CPU's. The other CPU's do not contain a GPU.

    So based on this since I don't use AMD processors I can just stick with the regular GPU drivers as these don't offer any additional performance enhancements outside of the CPU. Got it.

    Thanks.

    14.8 also supports desktop cards, the list of supported cards is here: AMD Catalyst 14.8 WHQL

    There is already new beta: AMD Catalyst 14.x BETA (14.300.1005.0 August 27) Download

    AMD's official site says otherwise. Only the APU 14.8 version has been released and not the discreet GPU card version. But its your system to screw up if you wish. I will wait for the official release from AMD as it is still 14.4.

    It is official, it just waits for WHQL certification from Microsoft, which can take months.

    You want to be careful if you install the 14.8 Beta drivers. I did that on my R7 240 and when I rebooted, the driver information was incorrect in the AMD Catalyst Control Center -- so I uninstalled the drivers (using Control Panel) and rebooted.

    Upon restart, my wireless keyboard and mouse no longer functioned!

    So, I restarted again -- and again, my wireless keyboard and mouse no longer functioned. Changed the batteries to new ones -- no change.

    Fortunately, I had made an image backup using Macrium Reflect BEFORE I installed the drivers, so I booted from USB, ran a restore -- and when I rebooted, mouse and keyboard function were back.

    I was running Catalyst 14.7 RC3 before (and am now) and probably should have only upgraded to Catalyst 14.8 WHQL -- which is what I will try next.

    Just ... be warned (and prepared).
