Probably going to see a lot of drivers being released soon. With a lot of games coming out in these first three months(and some have betas on top of that). Hopefully they stay on there gameQuote

It was only two years ago that people said they would not buy AMD because of drivers. AMD have really turned things around. They now have parity with Nvidia. Some would argue they've surpassed them.Quote

Just curious, but does anyone here know the difference between these two drivers?
What is the optional vs the minimal setup? One for new install and the other for updating an existing driver install?Quote

17.1 is optional. IE - it's not a critical update. That's a whole package though.

Minimal means just that. No bloat, no crap, just the driver and the CCC. So no recording, no RAPTR and so on.Quote
