    Misleading title is misleading.

    The embedded drivers are usually shit. Better use the Catalyst 12.11 Beta 11.

    In case of using xvba - don't use anything from the 12.11bX stream. It is broken for Level51@high with 16 Reframes and drops one frame every second for every other H264 Level.

    Stay with 12.10 and if you need xorg 1.13 support choose the 12.9Quantal.

    Anything about hybrid graphics? From what I heard anything above 12.8 is broken in this regard.

    AMD Catalyst in one single post:

    1) you're lucky if you are able to install the driver and make it actually work after first reboot
    2) you don't suffer a kernel panic within 1 day without doing anything special
    3) you don't have issues with WINE
    4) you don't suffer a freeze while watching some bullshit videos with VLC or whatever
    5) get the list continued..
