    Big day coming! AMD promised to fix CrossFireX issues. For a while now users running two AMD graphics cards (or a graphics card and an APU) have been suffering from performance issues.
    The new Catalyst should offer “improved multi-GPU frame pacing” to eliminate micro-stutter issues.

    Oh heck yeah I am! I've been holding onto my Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E425 (A8-3510MX + 6470M) because Its a good notebook but also hoping AMD would fix the Dual-Graphics Asynch-Crossfire some day and it looks like that day has finally come. Too bad it took them so long as this could've worked heavily in their favor back when Llano came on the stage. I will be testing the driver myself and report back with my findings.

    even duke nukem came out eventually. thank god i only had to wait ONE YEAR after the purchase of my lappy (m18x with cf) for a decent driver, provided that it is decent indeed.

    Ill get excited when I can install it first try without a BSOD.
    Anyway, I can't wait but remain cautiously optimistic.
    Ill be clicking the refresh button at midnight.

    Judging from AMD's long standing with previous releases, it'll most probably be named 13.7.

    probably the date it was digitally signed (by Microsoft's WHQL departments) is late June or early July.
