Hi


Like many people I have had problems with rome total war 2. This isn't about that.

However when wanting to try the latest 13.10 beta, I was told to uninstall my drivers (through the AMD driver itself) and then install the 13.10 over it.

I did that but now the application in which I can set programs to 'high performance' or 'power saving' disappeared. I can't find it anywhere in my start menu and when I go in my AMD folder I can't find it either. I can only endlessly re-insall the same driver.

Sorry if this is a simple issue, I'll delete right away once I get an answer!
