New 11.2 Catalyst driver

I'm looking to update my 4850HD vid card driver ,last time I updated was to the 10.6 driver version which is running now and is running fine no problems noticed using 10.6 driver to date, so I was looking to update my Driver but noticed that the new 11.2 driver has option to download with or without APP, So my question is will the 4850HD benefit from this new APP driver or should I just use the "Driver only" download without APP, or maybe just update to a newer 10 version driver, or should I just don't fix whats not broken? lol

  1. If I re-call right, APP are crossfire drivers for hd5xxx and hd6xxx series video cards. I do not think you would benefit. sorry.
  2. So I should just stick with my current 10.6 driver or update to a newer 10.x driver or the 11.2 "Driver Only" option?

    Actually, APP means Advanced Parallel Processing. I would upgrade, although, it might do absolutely nothing. Go ahead and try it though.
