Hello,

I have MSI GX60 gaming notebook.  I have performed clean Windows 8 64bit installation on SSD drive. I have installed 12.11 beta8 graphics drivers and then 12.11 beta11 and the Switchable Graphics menu won't load.

http://blogs.amd.com/play/2012/11/26/amd-enduro-technology-unbelievable-performance-battery-life-2/

Any solution?

Yes...there is a big sticky "How to update mobility Drivers"> Enduro falls under switchable graphics.

I don't understand it. Enduro is bugged as hell. If on Blogs AMD is showing how cool changes they made on 12.11 beta8 drivers for Switchable graphic notebooks why do I have to use old drivers from MSI?

MSI Drivers: 8.982.7

12.11 beta11: 9.01.8

So for whom are these drivers? I haven't seen any AMD Branded Gaming notebook with Enduro.

AMD only is a supplier of laptop components, not full systems, that being said I have a Clevo system with a 7970m, and it runs perfectly (tm), follow the above sticky on how to reinstall drivers. The biggest mistake I made on my system that bugged out Enduro, was not properly uninstalling / sweeping the drivers.

The Beta drivers supplied by AMD on their webbie are general drivers and sometimes may not be fully up to suit for the specific functions of a laptop, which is why its adviced to go to your supplier's website for the latest drivers.

MSI drivers are working quite good but 12.11 beta got tons of optimization and performance improvements.

I hope that when 12.11 WHQL drivers will be released MSI will release their version ASAP.
