  1. its macrumors newbie

    Jan 13, 2009

    Got early MBP 2011 15"

    Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6750M 1GB VRAM

    Now my queries for Windows 7 on bootcamp

    1) For gaming (and overall) etc, better to use bootcamp drivers OR install drivers from AMD website??

    2) Will custom driver screw up anything with MBP (in terms of not monitoring heat etc or killing logic board due to unknown issues / incompatibility)

    3) If yes on 1, Do we use 12-4_mobility_vista_win7_64_dd_ccc.exe ? or use something else? or something ending with "ocl" .. ? whats the differnce between "ccc" and "ccc_ocl"

    4) Why does AMD make it hard for full offline download link.. any direct link to page showing that would be great..

    In the past, I've downloaded and installed Nvidia drivers to replace those that were provided from the Boot Camp driver disc and I haven't experienced any problems in doing so.
