    No, but there certainly are other people doing it, and it really just frustrates everyone else who doesn't have those drivers.

    Yeah, I was just wondering why you quoted me.

    Write your own driver and you will always have the latest and greatest version before anyone else.

    Or, you can try to get on as an NDA'd beta tester.

    Failing that, you will just have to wait for the official releases just like everyone else.

    I can see running alpha and beta software if you are a developer, tester, or just desire the benefits of whatever features a newer version offers over the increased number of bugs and broken features, but I can't understand why someone would use pre-release software wherever possible unless said person is a bit masochistic.

    Guess it's not as easy as registering on a webform, is it?

    What if all three come together? A developer, that is testing previously broken things and benefiting from the latest effort done in the drivers? At the moment I train my skills in OpenGL and am testing the drivers every day with my daily usage. It would be great fun to benefit from the latest features. If the driver is completely broken I sill can switch to the previous beta/stable. If my hardware gets bricked I finally have a good reason to get a better card

    Better: "benefit from newest features wherever possible".

    C'mon folks, be nice. This is why I suggested cutting off the discussion a couple of pages back

    At least you can admit it.

    The second step is to stop.

    what is if i stop this becourse i'm not a liar ?
    the only point for you in this step is you don't get informations.


    other people say "amd is sooo bad and don't have any chance agains nvidia..."

    i think they are the real liars!

    becourse no one can watch in the future and i think amd does the best they can do.

    i buy amd becourse i support this way to go!
