I have a HP laptop with AMD A8M-4500M APU with 7640G integrated graphics and a 7670M dedicated to work in dual graphics mode............
...........after learning that the new 13.8 beta drivers possess the new frame pacing solution for micro stuttering issues faced in dual graphics......I installed them last night..........but the CCC does not shows any option for
turning frame pacing ON or OFF as shown in numerous website as screenshots...............any solution for this????
or any reason why this is not showing up (like is it unsupported?)

it's only for CrossfireX platforms (not the embeded graphics+discrete dual mode) you actually need two identical cards that are connected with the crossfire bridge and i suspect that it's also only working with desktop cards

You look in CCC, then under #d Application settings and at bottom of list you will see AMD CrossFireX Frame Pacing

As far as I know the mobility crossfire has not been addressed yet, and will come out in a future driver. Yes the driver works for mobility, just not the frame pacing part of it.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/dual-graphics-cross... 13.8 only affects discrete cards in cf (also including ones that don't need a bridge). It does not affect dual graphics.

It most likely will but of course they will fix the higher end cards first since they cost more. 13.10 drivers came out today with more frame pacing improvements on more titles but I still don't think dual graphics was addressed.

In ccc, in the performance tab, disable dual graphics. You can then configure switchable graphics which is under the power tab.
