Seems like this might be a good time to resurrect this question. The common response to 'do I have to use every new driver AMD releases' is.."If it ain't broke, don't fix it". That seems not to be the case now. I look at driver 'updates' as driver 'fixes' and in the past have skipped over updates as the 'fixes' do not affect me. That was because I could get just the game optimizations, the app profiles/CAP's, in a separate download. Now I have to install the new driver fix in order to benefit from a game optimization. Why the CAP's stopped being offered has never been explained, to my knowledge. Is there a reason? Are these optimizations being applied through raptr? Meaning we have to install raptr?
I wish we, the AMD community, could get a answer. And if at all possible, give us our CAP's back
