    I then tried 12.11beta, it installs but has a powerxpress warning and it doesn't work at all! I had to delete xorg.conf with a ubuntu usb to allow my computer to boot again.
    It seems my graphic card is not supported yet by the catalyst driver.
    What card is that?

    They only say 12.10 and 12.11 beta.
    The driver can be downloaded from the "embedded" area. This is the latest fglrx version driver, they have firegl drivers too that differ from the "standard" cards drivers. These drivers support tons of cards under Linux (windoze is another story).
    I use it with my A8-5500/7650D with no issues.

    Legacy would imply support for HD 2xxx - HD 4xxx or older... don't think these drivers go back that far.

    It's surprising then that AMD didn't put these drivers in the legacy folder.

    If they are the better ones, I will take 12.12.

    It is an "embedded driver", then it should not be for desktop/mobile cards, but above I see some comments of people using this driver...

    If I want a stable driver for my new laptop that has an intel cpu and an hd7730m card, should I take catalyst 12.10, 12.11 beta or 12.12 ?
    Drivers support many GPUs. I for example have an A8-5500 APU with its onboard AMD Radeon HD 7560D and all the above drivers work with it.
