    I think I am going to try this beta, because I am using 12.3 and get some bsod once and while...

    Can I install the desktop version?

    They are working on it. Mark_O and his team are burning lots of calories trying to get things with 7970M CF in proper working order. They are communicating with AMD about what needs to be done on their end, too.

    Try the one I linked yesterday in post # 261. It's working better than the previous versions. Not sure it will work as well for your 6970M CF setup, but there is no harm in trying it.

    Yes Mr. For, I understand. My only statement was that the new driver released on the 13/7/2012 it has been removed. I think they have realised that it is incomplete and they had to remove it.

    I am sure that the next update from them will have the vbios and the driver with the cap.

    Sorry, juliant. I misunderstood what you meant. I thought you were commenting on the fact that Dell did not have a newer driver update than the previous one.

    You're correct about them pulling it. They recognized that the 12.7b is better option for customers at this time. AMD never sent Dell a better reference driver to use and then AMD released the 12.7b so it was smart for them to remove it from the download page.

    I am a bit of a baby at this, I rep. you few days back (it was related to a guy giving me lecture that I should not post my problems here and that I should go to AMD and write to them directly, maybe you remember the discussion) and I do not know if I did it right (or even if it is possible to rep you :D)?! Thank you (please delete this if not required)

    Update: I noticed there is a small icon down where it shows your status. I must click on that for rep :D Sorry about the confusion
