I have an AMD Mobility 5650 running on Windows 7. Will I benefit at all from installing future Catalyst drivers?

In most cases when it comes to notebooks, it is often best to check for the latest drivers at the manufacturers website first to see if they have updated it for your model. If not, head over to AMD and look at the support and drivers heading. There can be some pretty significant fixes/improvements with having the latest drivers, however, exercise some caution when dealing with beta drivers, and try to temper your expectations as it pertains to your personal computing needs.

Totally figures. I'm lazy and usually wait 2 to 4 updates before installing them. I just finally installed 12.5 two days ago from 12.1 and then they release this! Curse my laziness!

Well, it's time for a new video card, seeing as how my card is no longer supported.

wait! so the performance boost(skyrim) only applies to the newest cards and not for older cards(hd6000 series)?

12.7 just messed up Skyrim for me. Installed fine, the game ran but my health and stamina bars were all over the place. Reinstalling 12.6 now.

Good to know I guess I'll pass on 12.7 or at least until its out of beta, considering it must be buggy. Installed 12.6 but haven't tried it out yet. Hopefully it will not give me any problems.
