A quick question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm going to buy the MSI's 6870 HAWK, and I'm wondering which drivers should I install.

The newest drivers from AMDs webiste AMD

OR

The newest drivers from MSI's webiste MSI

What may be the differences in these drivers?

As a general rule drivers (all of them) are best downloaded from the chip manufaturer, in this case from AMD. One reason would be AMD always provides the latest builds, manufacturers at most rebrand them; for example the ones on MSI site are from February; starting from May the 68x0s got a good performance boost from the drivers published by AMD.
