Installed 7950 as an upgrade from a 6870. Do I need to uninstall previous drivers or can I just put it in and detect the new drivers?

  1. I have done this exact same upgrade. For the sake of a clean install, I uninstalled the drivers before powering down to install the new card, and installed the drivers after the new card was in place.

    This may have taken a bit more time but worked perfectly without any issues.
  2. It should work without issues, went form a HD2600 to a HD7850 without issues but it can't hurt to do a complete reinstall
  3. I would uninstall the old drivers first, then install the latest ones from amd.

    Same drivers. No worries. Did the same upgrade as well.
