I just installed it, so it seems to support at least the 6990m when it comes to the mobile cards. Haven't tested it yet with BF3, will see how it performs. It seems to work very well for some people, other are reporting issues with Rage and other games.

No, haven't gotten my key so far... Called EA at about 5pm local time and they said they started to send out the early beta keys at 3pm and I should get mine before midnight... I mean it's not that important to me, but it's still annoying... early access blablabla and then you don't even get your key by time.

this driver seems to have problems with the install exe. can't get it to install properly.

Hmm, might miss mobility support of some cards... it's only a preview, haven't tested it yet.

Here's a mobility mod, provided by V-FrIeNd from guru3d: [AIO] AMD Catalyst 11.10 Preview (8.901.0) Win7.7z

Havent had time to install and test it so far, will do when I get the beta key. (If I ever get it)

i unlocked it using this method, props to the rev of course.
I have never had a 6870, so I don't know if this works. To unlock Overdrive for the 6990M or 6970M, you open Regedit and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ATI\ACE\ Settings\Graphics\OverDrive2. Change the value of the key “Accessible” in the right panel from "Nobody" to "All" (right click on Accessible, select Modify and enter “All” in the Value Data box). Then drop down to Overdrive3 and Overdrive5 in the Graphics section and make the same change. For the 6990M, that's all it takes; restart and a new Performance tab will appear in CCC, which includes Overdrive. The problem is that the default o/c limits in Overdrive for the 6990M are 740/1000, so you need to edit the 6990M vbios using RBE to increase the limits by moving the sliders on the last screen to your desired levels. I use 900/1200, which has served me well. The 6970M requires more. Before Overdrive can be enabled (or the Performance tab appear in CCC), the 6970M vbios has to be modified to move the OD limit sliders referred to above from the default 0/0 to the desired levels. It is a tedious process since the settings can only double with each mod. So, when you first move both sliders to the extreme right, it increases the limits to 1Mhz/1Mhz. Save and reopen, repeat to move to 2Mhz/2Mhz, etc. Keep repeating. Since it doubles each time, it doesn't take as long as you might first think. When you reach the desired level (I use 900/1200), reflash your vbios with the new settings and Overdrive should be available. Ordinarily, it is easier to just post a pre-modified vbios for the 6970M. Unfortunately, I don't have one for a 6870M, so you'll have to go through the manual process. I don't know whether the 6870M supports OD. If it does, this process should unlock it.

Greetings everyone,

Anybody installed the v2 previewdriver on a notebook? Else I'll try it tonight after work. Really would like to continue with Rage without a minor hiccup every couple of secs and major texture pop in! :<

PS: thx for linking the mobility mod of the v1 OP! Really enjoyed the BF3 beta thanks to you!

      Hello
      I have a problem with the Clevo P150
      I have installed various drivers, old ones, Windows 7 SP1 , Widows 10 and the same problem. Graphics card error and no sleep and hibernation and trouble with Wi-Fi
      long time to connect around 4/5 min.
      After installing the drivers most often, the laptop stops responding when the Windows LOGO is displayed. It also happens that it will enter the desktop and then a black screen will appear with the cursor in the upper left corner.
      When trying to install new drivers, for example, Intel pops up a window: "Your computer does not meet the minimum hardware requirements"
      After analyzing the problem, I came to the conclusion that it was a power problem and it was not a fault of power supply or motherboard just Prema Bios.
      My version is: 1.02.17PM v2  Ver 4.6.5.3
      If the bios is bad and you have the same opinion, then please provide a link to the latest version and explain step by step how to upload it.
      Another issue is graphics drivers
      Which drivers are best for HD7970m
      amd-catalyst-9.1.0.0
      amd_catalyst-12.4.0
      amd_catalyst-15.7.1
      Or maybe with crimson you are acting eg
      amd crimson -17.7.2
      Maybe I need to change the bios in the graphics card
      to the drivers from Crimson to work with HD7970m
      Let's know whether someone succeeded and thanks to him running Battlefield 1
      If so please write down how to step by step.

      Ok guys, these are newer than 11.11a and they will NOT cause your Alienware based system to go into an endless BSOD loop like 11.11a do. During the install process, you MIGHT encounter a bsod while the display driver is installing but upon reboot it should install successfully. After that, re-run the installer again and finish it by installing the CCC + HDMI drivers. This release includes profiles AND the ability to create your own gaming profiles! In addition, brightness controls are finally working!! Tested these in Saints Row: The Third and the performance is top notch so give them a shot and let us know what you think.
