    Anyone had any success installing these on the 2011 iMac with the AMD Radeon HD 6750M GPU (I'm running Windows 7 64bit).

    I tried updating last night....I'm used to doing this and very thorough i.e. fully uninstall AMD software and drivers first, then do a final clean-up using Driver Sweeper prior to installing new drivers. However, using the above link when I re-install it just installs Catayst Controller 11.10 with driver version 8.902 which is what I previously had installed? As a double check I downloaded the little App to check wether I've got the latest drivers installed and it seems to think I have.

    Hmm, is the Catalyst Software Suite on this page the same one that you tried to install (http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/Pages/radeon_win7-64.aspx)?

    Also, I don't know if it's nowadays absolutely necessary to uninstall the drivers before updating them. On my PC I have upgraded my AMD/ATI drivers many times without uninstalling them and most of the times upgrade doesn't even require a reboot!

    Cheers, that did the trick. Not sure why the AMD linked file wasn't having any of it....perhaps I was a bit premature and they hadn't updated the linked file?

    Anyway, for anyone who is interested here's the 3D Mark Vantage Score with maximum Overdrive settings:

    As expected they're inline with the results I was getting with the previous 8.902 drivers.
