Seems like a lot of people are having issues with these, particularly an error where the driver refuses to install which has a cascade effect to previous driver installations as well. After that happens, it's impossible to install an AMD driver without using System Restore.

I have three emails in my inbox and a few posts on our forums indicating the same thing.

While they work for me, seems like this error is popping up quite a bit.

took me less than 10 minutos to install on my crossfire 290s.

aren't you the author of the whining 970s?

Yup. I'm that guy if you are talking about the investigation into the frequency of coil whine. thumb.gif

However, I'm just going by what some of my emails and our forum messages have said.

I personally did run into some issues with these drivers as stated in our article but there certainly weren't any showstoppers like some people have been posting.

Just installed this driver with xfire 290x. Some decent new features, but really nothing special. These drivers are way overhyped.

I wouldn't disagree. Built in 'supersample' seems to be the hook here.

Most people only care for performance, and you can't sell them bug fixes or video playback features as a reason to hype "special" drivers. There's a good mix of ingredients in this cake but the topping is missing so people are calling it a lie.
