The driver now includes support for the company's Enduro switchable graphics technology and includes a redesigned control center interface, support for profile applications, as well as customization options for a performance or battery centric modes.
AMD also promises a performance gain of 10 percent for single GPU configurations in Lost Planet 2 and several fixed issues, including resolved Firefox corruptions in Crossfire mode.
The 12.9 Beta release is available for Windows XP 32-bit, as well as 32-bit and 64-bit versions for later Windows versions (Vista/7/8), as well as Ubuntu 12.10 and RHEL 6.3.

Thumbs down storm incoming since angry amd owners but lets face it, amd has horrible driver support :D
You must be one of those Nvidia fanboys. Don't forget to install the WHQL 196.75 drivers next time you want a blazing-fast GPU.
More recently, let's not forget how Nvidia had a lot of people who had stuttering problems caused by their 300 series drivers, severe underclocking caused by their 300 series drivers, and V-Sync not working because of them. Even more recently since those were fixed about two or three months after they showed up (so much for Nvidia always fixing things quickly) is how the 306.23 drivers seem to have slightly inferior overclocking stability to older driver versions as shown here:
Unfortunately, driver issues are a problem for pretty much all companies that make drivers.
Eh, been an AMD/ATI guy for years. No one around here likes to hear that the driver issues that plagued them back in the early and mid 2000s just isnt there anymore. Even mods here are very sensitive about what you say about it. Its quite humorous :) Anyhow, performance gains are always good. Gonna grab em and try em out.
but outside of gameing, it can take them months to fix problems.
acdsee is a great program for this. as some drivers panning with the arrow keys isnt broke, some its unuseably broke... its why i never update drivers when they work
Hope this includes cards such as the 4870x2.
