New AMD display drivers released [LINK]

Finally, AMD has released new drivers for all their cards, including “full support” for the Radeon HD 7900 series.  I have yet to test these, as download speeds are hovering around 50 KB/second, but I will post results as soon as possible.  It looks like X-Plane made it into the list of bug fixes:

  • XPlane: Textures no longer exhibit flicker and corruption

AMD Cataylst Software Suite Version 12.3

"Guesstimated" release date for new HD 7970 drivers

I received another response from AMD about a potential release date for updated HD 7970 drivers:

Dear Christopher,

Your service request : SR #{ticketno:[xxx]} has been reviewed and updated.

Response and Service Request History:

There is no pre announced date, my best guesstimate would be Wednesday, next week.

In order to update this service request, please respond, leaving the service request reference intact.

Best regards,

AMD Global Customer Care

Don’t hold your breath.  I have a feeling they’ve been telling people “next week,” or even “next month,” for three months.  Nevertheless, I will travel to AMD Land on Wednesday to see whether or not the most serious issues have been remedied.
