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.

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.
