AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
12.1 13.1 13.2 beta

Operating System
Windows 7 64 Bit Professional

Issue Details
- include specifics on symptoms, and steps to reproduce the issue


When I use a recording device such as xsplit or OBS to record my in game footage there is flickering in the game and graphical issues. When I upload them to Youtube, people have on both League of Legend forums and Xsplit forums report these problems occuring with the high range AMD processors.

I removed all the drivers, and replaced the drivers to the newest in beta and it still has this annoying flickering. At first it was flickering I could see whilst playing, but now it's a flickering on the recordings.

Are AMD working on solving the issue or is it a broken graphics card?

I also had the drivers constantly crashing, prior to installing 13.2 beta through just using chrome. I understand now that it may be a driver issue, but could you confirm you are actually working on fixing it soon?

Or is it a physical problem with the graphics card.

Applications and Games

I'm having a problem when recording my in game footage that results in a flickering of a black screen, I uninstalled all drivers, reinstalled drivers to the beta, but I still get it.

I get it both using XSPLIT and OBS.

CPU Details
i5-2500k 3.30 @ 3.70 (4CPUS)

8GB ram

Z77 Gigabyte Motherboard


Additional Details
It can only be the graphics card everything else ruled out.

Z77 mainboards have a long issue list with the 79xx series cards. Complain to either the mainboard manufactures, videocard manufactures (NOT AMD) or  AMD. Better try your luck with the first two as AMD needs 3 releases to actually fix a thing and then ruin it in the forth release. Not enough money for QA i presume.

Well I would like to upload my videos to youtube, and I'm going to check every other game I have too now, someone messaged me saying they had it with Crisis 2, but I can't see his post to reply to it now.


I just keep having problems with this graphics card and isn't like it is cheap either! I just constantly seem to have issues with it, it doesn't feel like it is supported.

What is the typical response time from AMD? The problem is apparently happening across all time of high end Radeon's7xxx

If I RMA the product could I just ask for a Nvidia?
