These drivers seem amazing. I had an issue uninstalling and then installing these new ones but I believe it was my noobness that created it and not the drivers. Driver Sweeper is a life saver. :partyman:

Anyone mind testing the new Catalyst 10.3 and compare it to the 10.3a version ?
Is there any difference ?
I'm running 10.3a now and don't know if there is any reason to upgrade to Catalyst 10.3 :-k

Everyone says 10.3 is great, but is it stable?
I have 5750 and a pivoting monitor using 9.12 CCC and get artifacts every time I rotate.
What does 10.3 fix (besides speed)?
Thanks

The laundry list of fixes from 9.12 to 10.4 pre-WHQL is lengthy and worth the upgrade if you ask me... None of the Radeon 5000 series drivers have been buggy to me. Some idle power state adjusments have been made since 9.12 also, so that should reduce power consumption and heat. I'd upgrade to 10.4 pre-WHQL and if they aren't stable roll back to 9.12 after running driver cleaner. I don't think you'll roll back though.
