I'm tired of waiting. It's been almost three month since you released the latest driver for 7970.

It seems like AMD doesn't care about older card anymore since the R9 cards did see the light for the first time.

But how about us who can't play games like Battlefield 4 due to a outdated driver?

The beta version sucks aswell so don't bother mention that.

Know what the difference is between a beta driver and WHQL Certified driver? $250 and 2 weeks of Microsoft vetting.

Yeah and that's not the kind of money AMD has in the backpocket to spend.

I'm allergic to beta drivers and they have done nothing to me except more problems.

See, they can't just spend $250, they have to spend $750 because they are supporting 3 OSs (7, 8, 8.1). I have a 7970 and am using 13.11b2 without any issues.

There will be no 13.10 as it's already December, if you haven't noticed. Version numbers go like year.month. This is why the nex driver will be 13.12 or 14.1.

$750?

How much does AMD earn in 1 month?

NV**IA can release 2 version driver and hotfix within 1 month!

ATI Driver is a joke since Y2K.

You say AMD drivers have sucked since 2000, yet you bought a Radeon HD 7970...Must not suck to much.

For a 7970 and 7970 CF, 13.11 beta7 is ALL that is necessary for BF4 on Windows 7.  Get beta 8 if you did not build your computer and are using Windows 8.
