So I am trying to determine if I have the newest drivers installed for my Radeon HD 7850.


Currently it is Driver Version: 12.100.17.0 This seems like the newest, am I missing anything ?


The AMD website is confusing me with their software suite downloads......

More about : newest driver 7850

Driver Version 13.1 seems to be the most recent driver sir.

Its okay. I normally choose the driver manually its faster for me with both AMD/NVIDIA.

it shouldn't. When you go through Catalyst Control Panel does it show the right version?

Ok so I uninstalled what was my current driver, booted into safe mode and ran driver sweeper. I restarted and installed the driver you linked me to. Says Catalyst version 13.1 but driver packaging 9.0 and so forth. It does mention this under the software suite on AMD'S website a 9.0 number, would this be correct then ?

The display driver is Display Driver ver. 9.012 so that sounds right.

I appreciate the fast responses

Still a bit confused by the different drivers. I thought it was all inclusive.

The suite has a number which is the number that people normally associate as the driver. But internally for AMD they label each part of that driver differently so I can understand the confusion but yea they have different revisions for different things.
