  1. Hello Friends. I am in a bit of dilemma, and this question comes purely out of curiosity. I was running Furmark 1.9 (Standard 720P bench) on some of my Machines to get a idea about their Performance. Guess what, 8570m Scored 303, Onboard 6520G scored 400! To give you an idea, here are the specs of machines- HP G002AX AMD A8 6410 @ 2Ghz, Turbo 2.4 (Beema) (Onbiard R5 Gfx disabled) Dedicated 8570m, 384 GCN shaders, 650mhz core, 900mhz memory 4GB Ram 1TB HDD Furmark 1.9- 303. Acer 5560 AMD A6-3420m @ 1.5 ghz. LLano Onboard 6520g, 320 VLIW shaders, 400mhz core. No dedicated mem, 666mhz system ram, 8GB Ram 1TB HDD Furmark 1.9- 400. As you can see, the 8570 appears to have a clear advantage, mathematically. The CPU, GPU shaders, Clock speeds, everything!. Of course, both Machines were plugged in, Power profile set to HIGH PERFORMANCE and ATI power play to MAXIMIZE PERFORMANCE. Please guide regarding the anomaly.

  6. Installing and Updating AMD Drivers This guide will cover downloading and installing new drivers for AMD graphics cards and APUs. Installing AMD Drivers AMD drivers are included in a piece of software called AMD Catalyst. AMD Catalyst does a great deal more than just graphics drivers, but in this guide will only cover the basics of installing and updating the software. Step 1: Navigate to the AMD Catalyst website, the link can be found here. Step 2: Click on the 'Download Now' graphic in the middle of the screen. It should be quite easy to spot. Step 3: You should arrive at a page detailing all the AMD drivers available for current graphics cards. Step 4: Select the download for your operating system and video card driver. There are two different driver categories; drivers for the HD7000, HD6000 and HD5000 series and a separate driver for the HD4000, HD3000 and HD2000 series. Make sure you select the correct download for your system. For the interests of this guide, I will be using the HD7000, HD6000 and HD5000 series drivers for Windows 7 64-bit, however the process should be similar with all versions. Step 5: Click on the 'Catalyst Software Suite' download button. If you would like to install the latest Beta driver, click on the appropriate download button. Be aware though, that the Beta drivers are not always as stable as official releases, and could cause your computer to crash or catch fire. (Okay perhaps not the catch fire bit) Step 6: If you are using Internet Explorer, click 'Run' or 'Save' in the dialog box that appears. In Chrome or Firefox, you just need to click on the download when it has completed. The download is approximately 140MB, so should take less than 5 minutes to download. Step 7: Click 'Run' on the Security Warning dialog box, if it appears, and allow any UAC warnings that may appear. Step 8: Select a temporary folder for the software to extract installation files to, then click 'Install'. Note that this is not the install directory, and can be deleted after the software is fully installed. Step 9: After the installer has extracted, a new window should open showing the Catalyst Install manager. Select your language and click 'Next'. Step 10: Select 'Install' on the 'Select Installation Operation' window, if it appears. Step 11: Select 'Express' on the 'Installer Welcome' screen, and type in your Preferred Install Location, if you wish to use it, then click 'Next'. Dismiss the message 'The folder does not exist', if it appears, by clicking 'Yes'. Advanced users can customise the installation by selecting 'Custom', but in the interests of simplicity, we will remain using the 'Express' selection. Step 12: The installer should begin installing your software. At points, the installer may appear to freeze, but do not be too quick to assume so. Sometimes the installer will freeze for up to five minutes, depending on the speed of your system. The screen may also flash or go blank during the installation of display drivers. This is usual for the installer -- don't worry, it hasn't broken your computer, however you might have to rearrange the icons on your desktop afterwards. Step 13: Eventually, the installer should finish the installation process. Click 'Finish', and a page may load in your web browser asking to register your installation. This is not necessary, however you may register if you wish. Step 14: If the installation was successful, you should see the AMD Vision icon in your system tray. Some features may be unavailable until you reboot your computer, and you can delete the temporary Catalyst installation folder at this point. Updating AMD Catalyst Drivers At this point, there is no way to update AMD graphics drivers without removing the old software and installing the new software. Step 1: Navigate to Start > Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a program (Windows Vista +) or Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Windows XP). Step 2: Double-click on AMD Catalyst Install Manager. Step 3: Click 'Next' on the first page of the uninstaller. Step 4: Select 'Express Uninstall ALL AMD Software', and click 'Next'. Step 5: Click 'OK' on the dialog that appears. The screen may flash during uninstallation, and the resolution of your monitor will be reverted to standard resolution (usually 800*600 or 1024*768) Step 6: Reboot the computer to complete the uninstallation, then follow the instructions in 'Installing AMD Drivers'. I will do a separate tutorial about installing drivers in Ubuntu, as it is fairly complex and not necessarily driver-specific
