    I have a Lenovo laptop, and Lenovo hasn't released any drivers for Windows 8 yet. Right now I'm only able to use the Intel card. Is all this mostly for HP products?

I now have the switchable graphics menu available, and it looks fine on the surface, but I'm still only using the Intel card, not the Radeon. Any help?

    Also, device manager is reporting my card as a 7670, is that a problem too? Thanks.

    You need to enable switching via the Power menu in the Catalyst Control Center (CCC). You can access CCC via Right-click (on Desktop) -> Graphics Properties.

    W8.1up1 Pro x64 w/media center


    Well just to put in my last few words, That SP59580 works as well on W8 a the old W7 driver did for W7 for this weird setup. and I assume that this will be HP's one and only driver issued.

    btw: have anyone tried to log on to Lehcat's site? I tried a couple days now using IE or Firefox and all I get is a popup box asking for a name and PW.

    Wow looks like the noise level on this blog went from 90 to 0 lol.

    I guess its due to many more finding W8 drivers, as in my case.

    Anyway just wanted to post that leshcat's site is back up, and no password needed.
