I currently have an AMD Radeon HD 5870 in my PC and am trying to figure out what the optimal driver to use for it is.
I currently have the 16.2.1 Beta driver installed as from my understanding of version numbering, the display driver version number is more recent than the WHQL one.
However, in the Radeon Settings software, when I check for updates it offers the following:
Now from my understanding, these drivers are not compatible with the HD 5xxx series and so it's just an oversight and the software shouldn't be offering them to me. Is that correct?
So my questions are:
Thanks very much in advance! My current best guess is that the Beta 16.2.1 is the best driver to use, but I look forward to your input.
The 15.7.1 is the last WHQL update for your card. The Beta 16.2.1 is the last/only Crimson driver for your card...which means, among other things, a new Control Panel. I agree with using the Beta.
