    Anyone know which AMD download package to update the GPU drivers?

    The bootcamp installed panel lists them as FirePro D700 (FireGL V), but when I tried the auto detect on the AMD site, it wanted to install Radeon HD 7xxx drivers.

    I'm guessing maybe just too new and give it a month before we see more established/correct drivers?

    I've read that the Catalyst/Radeon 7xxx is correct and the cards will act like Crossfire.

    No first hand experience, but that is what I've seen out there.

    try this:

    Hmm, that's in interesting.

    Well, it's quite confusing right now as Specviewperf 12 results shows that the GPU performs like how a FirePro/Quadro GPU performs at OpenGL. However, I'm waiting for somebody to run a Specviewperf 11 test as it'll be easier to compare. Will you run it for us? :D

    SPECviewperf® 11 download page

    While you're at it, could you run a Specviewperf 12 as well cause we already managed to collect results from D500 and if I'm not mistaken D300 as well, just looking for someone with D700 to run the test. Oh and results from 11 and 12 is not comparable, hence why I'm asking to run both. Thanks :cool:
