There is an AMD recognized bug with the 12.4 drivers. For some people the version shown does not update with the installation. AMD's response is that you are running the latest driver if the install log shows no errors regardless of what is show in CCC or other version reporting software. This issue will be corrected in the release of 12.5.

hi, thx for the info. i think AMD is always having this issue, sometimes i even have to uninstall the original driver and install the new one to make it "update to date", funny.

cheers

the current 12.4 drivers have different reactions to different gpus. the next update should alleviate some of the problems

I have 12.4 installed with no issues. AMD takes a bad rap but I have used their products since ATI days and have very few issues. When there were questions I found their support to be responsive and very willing to help. When you consider the variety of hardware, the age spread of the systems, the massively different user skill sets and the lack of consistency of quality coding in the software and games these cards (Nvidia also) must run; it is a wonder they do as well as they do with so few real issues or problems.
