AMD informs us that they have a working solution for OpenGL dynamic switching, but it isn't fully tested yet. It should come out in an updated driver, hopefully before the end of this year .

that's what was posted by anandtech.

so, if openGL dynamic switching is working, how about a release ?

AMD graphics are still half broken.

How hard is it to roll out a working product and drivers ?!
Come on, AMD ! We're talking about AMD cpu + gpu. It's not like you have to work with Intel's IGP. This is all in-house!

I am disappoint.


currently, we have to resort to a bios mod hack which enables fixed mode on the dedicated gpu, but Catalyst is not very compatible, resulting in lockups when rebooting.

AMD, how about getting some more competent programmers to make working drivers....... and to make catalyst control center less wonky.

whom do we have to talk to to get some action and support around here ..... ?
Why is it so hard to relay a message to AMD's inside guys ....

Bueller ? buelleeeer ??

The is a user's forum, nobody from AMD comes in here and reviews customer questions or requests. You best bet would be to contact AMD directly through official channels.

Not that I don't agree with you, because I do, just letting you know your words fall on deaf ears.

Cheers!
