I created this thread in order to inform people about any new catalyst drivers that AMD will release for our Graphic cards. I will try to keep it updated.


For now one we only have these drivers.

Catalyst Crashing

Is anyone having problems with AMD Catalyst Driver 8.93.7 RC10 crashing on Windows 8 64-bit?

I have an ATI Radeon HD 5770.
The Catalyst program runs for about a two minutes after boot then crashes.

Text is not very clear either. Several attempts with Clear Type Tuner have made little difference.
