I updated my drivers with the 13.9 legacy version. I run Vista64bit and selected the appropriate driver.

Now before the udate, dxdiag statet drivers 8.17. After update, it's the same, although the Catalyst-Control-Center states 8.97.

How can this happen?


dxdiag (both):
   Driver Version: 8.17.0010.1129 (English)
      DDI Version: 10.1
   BGRA Supported: Yes
Driver Attributes: Final Retail


I deinstalled the old drivers, botted and installed the new ones.

Only what the device manager says matters, nothing else. Also check the date, not only the version number. Sometimes drivers are updated without a version change when the changes are only cosmetic.
