We found out that there were 2 different drivers from june 12 that popped out on the web. The first ones we tested were the Catalyst 12.x Unofficial Beta labeled 9.000.0 on now comes the Catalyst 12.7 Beta version 8.981.2. We were a bit disappointed by the 9.000.0 even if there had the best performance ratio a glitch in performance was present under Dragon Age II. Are the 12.7 Beta better ? Will there be the same performance glitch or even more ? Let's see which is da best driver for the Radeon HD 7970!
