Thank you.

    Windows 8 Pro 64 bit OS
    Asus Crosshair IV Formula Megatrends BIOS version 2002 (everything above that is beta)
    Chipset - I hope - is 890FX (Belarc Advisor won't list)
    16GB OCZ Reaper DDR 3 1333 system RAM
    Dual Radeon HD 7970 GPU's in Crossfire, CCC 12.1
    Sound Blaster Recon3D Fatal1ty Champion sound card
    LG HL-DT-ST BD-RE BH10LS30 ATA Device [Optical drive] Blu-ray rewriter
    PC Power & Cooling 950W PSU
    Hello 7beauties,

    I agree. I wouldn't recommend flashing beta EPROM.

    Using a beta graphics driver is fine though. If you have any issues with it, you could always just rollback to the previous driver version, or uninstall the beta and reinstall the WHQL version.

    AMD in the news got money problems, if they go bust in the next year or so no more driver updates. got caught out years ago when STB VELOCITY went bust.

    AMD has often lost big money but would rebound for a while before getting into trouble again. There were even rumors floated that VIA would buy them out, but little David has kept a heart beat. Anand Lal Shimpi and editors at Maximum PC have consistently said it would be very bad if AMD folded because then Intel wouldn't have the pressure to "tick" or "tock," that smaller increments in technology would ensue with high price tags. At least AMD's GPU business has kept developing top notch products that are profitable. Let's all hope the pressure of AMD's competition will continue.

    A chief complaint that some gamers in a forum have about Win 8 are problems with Catalyst drivers which I had experienced. Fortunately my latest update to CCC 13.1 went smoothly and problem free. I'm no expert, so anybody who knows better please poke in and correct me. In most cases a driver update overwrites the older driver, but graphic driver updates don't overwrite older versions which could result in conflicts. You're supposed to download and save the graphic driver update on the desktop, uninstall the outdated version, and then install the update. AMD has graphic driver updates meant for Windows 8.
