I have simply question.

I want to install only Driver without any other stuff, but i don't know if AMD CAP will work without Catalyst Software?

I don't like, and use this kind of software, SDK, Transcoding, bla bla . I want only Drivers for my card, + game profiles.

If anyone know, please anwser.

As far as I know internal game profiles are tied to CCC as well as external ones (CAPs). Installing driver only is recommended for office PCs only where game performance doesn't matter.

I understand that CCC was a concern 10 years ago when it affected general performance of a PC in a very drastic (and negative) way, but today it's fairly invisible. You can turn off the tray icon and forget about it if you want to.
